Year 6 home learning week beginning 4th May

Welcome to the wonderful month of May!

We’d love to hear more from you on the blog or by email. Remember when you comment on the blog, you can just make up an email address to be able to post a comment.

e.g or     or

Don’t feel you have to comment every day but perhaps at the end of the week you could post or email to say what you’ve completed. You could tell us what you enjoyed most (so we know to do more of this!) and what you found tricky (so we can help you improve!)

Just to remind you of our message from last week about our updated blog posts:

From now on, we will be posting the tasks you need to complete over the week in one go. Hopefully, this will enable you to be able to be flexible in your learning and make it work you and your family.

On this post, you will find 5 English, 5 maths and 3 wider curriculum tasks for you to complete throughout the week. 

For English and maths, there will be 5 lessons available. It would be amazing if you could complete one a day – we know this isn’t possible for everyone – so aim for at least 3. 

There will also be 3 other tasks to complete which will be the wider curriculum as well as spellings. These may be science, geography, history, PSHE, art or D&T. You can choose when you would like to complete these. 

We love reading your comments on the blog and receiving emails from you all, especially pictures of your incredible work; we endeavour to respond as promptly as we can. 

Our emails are: 

We will continue to post chapters of our story for you to enjoy so keep an eye on the blog for those to appear.

We are both missing you all dearly but so grateful that technology can bring us so much closer together.

Miss Lowe and Miss Spaven

    Hello! I am trying to get on to SPaG to do the tests but every time I put in my username and password it says invalid password or username! I think I will try something else however it is kind of frustrating because I really want to do it 🙁

      Hi Polly,
      If you email me on I can reply back to you with your username and password. I don’t want to post it on here otherwise everyone will see!

    Hi there, I have done Mrs Fozzard’s English lesson for Monday lesson and enjoyed it and these are my answers:
    4.Move from a region
    6.On the edge

    • 4th May 2020 at 12:57 pm

      Questions 1-2) Well done for your answers for the ‘your turn’ tasks on the video – great replacements for colossal and harsh

      Questions 3-5) Well done Emmie, you’ve done a great job with these independent tasks on word meaning today. Some of these verbs were very subject specific which were quite tricky; it just goes to show how much your vocabulary has developed this year. Well done!

      Did you learn any new words in your spelling too?

      Great effort and lovely to hear from you 🙂 Maybe you could try White rose maths at some point today too.

    Hello ,
    I could not get on to spag because it would not let me log in. However, I enjoyed white rose maths.

    • 4th May 2020 at 12:44 pm

      Hi Joshua,
      If you email me on I can email you back with your log in username and password to check you have the correct log in details.
      If not, don’t worry as this was just an extension extra task for you if you wanted.
      Well done, how did you find the maths? Did you have a go at the Oak Academy English too?

    White rose maths answers:
    2.7/10 doesn’t simplify because 7 can not be divided by 2, 3 or 5. 10 can not be divided by 2 because 7 can’t and you have to do the same to the top (numerator) as well as the bottom (denominator).
    4.I partly agree because I don’t agree with Ron. Five can not be halved so you can’t simplify it so he is wrong. But I agree with Mo and Eva because Eva is right by saying, “only one number can be halved “. She is right because you can’t simplify it. Mo is also right, he has said, “I can’t simplify this because one number is odd and the other is even”. He is right because five is an odd number and twenty is an even number. So he is right.
    5.9/12 is the same as 3/4 because if you put it bar model it would show twelve blocks and nine shaded in and four blocks lined up with the twelve blocks and three shaded in.

      Which week are you doing Emmie? The blog is on summer term week 1 so we are a couple of weeks behind the updated resources.
      Don’t worry if you are working ahead but just so you know which week we are working on.
      The answers are on the website with the video and activity sheet so if you are working on a different week, you can always mark yourself 🙂
      Well done for completing maths and English today. You are very hard working!

    hi, i have completed the maths and english tasks for Monday and Tuesday. My mum has been doing the work with me so we are both learning. We are going to make banana bread today whilst we are listening to Chapter 7 of the story. Hope you are both OK. Oliver

      Hi Oliver,
      Lovely to hear from you again! Well done for completing the maths and English tasks today – how did you find them? I’m glad you are able to work with your mum to do them too.
      The banana bread sounds yummy – if you get a chance, please send me a picture. I’d love to see. I’ve made a lemon drizzle cake today – it smells lovely.
      Enjoy chapter 7!
      Miss Lowe 🙂

    Hi there, I have done Mrs Fozzard’s English lesson for Tuesday and I enjoyed it and these are my answers:
    1.Closely together
    4.Unconventional and unusual

    • 5th May 2020 at 1:08 pm

      Well done Emmie – lovely to hear from you! How did you get on with the SPAG yesterday? What activities did you try?
      Have you been watching the story we’ve been reading too?

      Miss Lowe 🙂

    • 5th May 2020 at 2:58 pm

      Hi Hector!
      It’s great to hear from you – how have you been?
      It would be great if you could have a go at the English and Maths task every day and then if you want to do extra, there are a couple of wider curriculum things you could try! Try to complete at least 3 English or maths tasks a week!
      Have a good day!
      Miss Lowe 🙂

    • 5th May 2020 at 3:02 pm

      Hi Hector!
      Great to see you commenting on the blog 🙂 You can always email me with any work at as well if you like.
      Just like Miss Lowe said, the English tasks on Oak Academy (see the links) are good as they take you step by step through the lesson and if you don’t always want to do the final friday task then you can always just do Mon- Weds lessons.
      In terms of whiterose maths (again see link on blog) you can start from any week (we are on summer term week 1 but you can go back to the beginning from week 1 if you like) and there is a video, activity sheet and an answer sheet so you can mark your own or check the answers if you get stuck to have a see how the question works.
      Hope this is clear. If not, please email me.
      There are also chapters of the famous five that Miss Lowe and I have been reading too so you can watch those!
      Thanks and lovely to hear from you.

      Well done Emmie, this looks great – remember you can ‘resume video’ after completing the activity and they talk you through the answers so you can mark as you’ve finished but it’s lovely to see your answers posted on here too.
      Thank you
      Miss Spaven

    I can,t seem to log on to

    • 6th May 2020 at 12:26 pm

      Hi Aaron,
      If you email me at I can reply and send you your log on details to check you have the correct ones.

    Maths answers:
    2A)14/20 on a bar model there would be 20 sections and 14 shaded in.
    B)9/10 on a bar model there would be 10 sections and 9 shaded in.
    C)4/5 on a bar model there would be 5 sections and 4 shaded in.
    D)3/4 on a bar model there would be 4 sections and 3 shaded in.


    3.Amir knew that 4/15 is the same as 8/30 and that 3/10 is the same as 9/30 therefore 9/30 is greater than 8/30 but then he remembered that he has to put it back to the original numbers so 3/10 is greater than 4/15.

    4.Rosie should take the penalties for the school team because if you convert 7/10 into 21/30, 21 is less than 23 so Ron scored less than Rosie.

      I think i’ve managed to find which week you’re doing Emmie. You are a bit ahead of us – we are working on summer term week 1 but you can always check your answers yourself if you are working ahead on another week.
      I have had a look though and just check your ordering on 2B and also check 5B and 5D
      Thank you
      Miss Spaven

    I did half of it but I will do something else after it.
