Art Reading for Pleasure


Our timetable for the day is above which will show you when each lesson will be. We will stick to these video times for the forseeable which should help you plan your day around this. 


Obviously there are 3 video lessons a day, there will be 15 minutes of input and then the rest of the time will be your own to go and do the activities.

Please send your work into me via Dojo, Google Classroom or email ( We will be marking this work and using it as proof of attendance for each day.


Google Classroom


Our video calls will be conducted via Google Classroom NOT Zoom this time.

Therefore please see below the written steps from the video above.


  1. Go to on your web browser (ideally Chrome) - if you are using a tablet or phone, simply download the Google Meet app.
  2. Click on "Go To Classroom"
  3. Enter your child's username and password from the slips of paper in your packs
  4. Enter our Year 6 classroom by clicking on "6O".
  5. Finally click on 'Meet Link' at the top of the page and you will be put straight into our video calls - if it says the video hasn't been started, just keeping refreshing the page as it means I (as the teacher) haven't started the call yet but I will do by the alloted time slot!


Any questions, please message me - I am available all day on Dojo, Facebook Messenger, Google Classroom or the email address above.

Feel free to watch newsround each day to keep in touch with what is going on in the world.



Today we will be looking at reflection following on from our work on translation yesterday. Just like in a mirror, when a shape is reflected, it always flips over. In the example below, the blue arrow is reflected down the mirror line and therefore flips to face the other side. You can test this with a mirror at home! When you raise your left hand, your reflection actually raises their right hand!


See the video below for more guidance. Start it at 1:30 and watch till 5:30.


Log in to Google Classrooms meet for 8.40am sharp as to facilitate live lessons for all pupils, we have just 15 minutes for our lesson starter! Don't forget to send your work into me on Dojo or email (

Transformations - Reflecting Shapes (1)

Powered by to reflect shapes in a mirror line

Either print the worksheet below or copy it into your book. Use the mirror line to reflect the shapes. Remember, when you reflect the shape it will flip to face the opposite direction.


Once you have completed reflection worksheet 1, give either worksheet 2 or 3 a go - I warn you these are harder as they are not all quadralaterals.



I'm going to go through some comprehension in our Google Classroom Meeting. Again, make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 20 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.


We will complete pages Page 4/5 (Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman) & Page 6/7 (The Story of my Life by Helen Keller) of you CGP Comprehension Book TWO.




We are going to carry on with our spanish learning of numbers. We are going to move up to 39 today! Watch the video below and then complete the online games linked below.

Spanish 27: counting up to 39

Enabling children to count from 1 to 39 in Spanish.

I know a lot of you really enjoy your spanish lessons so feel free to complete the spanish worksheet with the numbers we've been practising - this is optional!

Reading with Mr O


Log back into Google Classroom for a live reading of our class reader "Blitzed" by Robert Swindells. We're read the first 4 chapters and will soon find out about George's antics on his street!


Make sure you are logged in by 12:50pm to ensure you don't miss any of the story!



Right we're going to look at an element of art called Still Life.


still life (plural: still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which are either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc.).


Have a look on the website below to see some examples.

Make sure you have one of your trainers to hand and we're going to sketch it out. Make sure there is a plain background behind it to help you notice the detail of the shoe. Take your time with lots of little faint lines to create your image. First draw the outline of the shoe, before moving into adding in the detail of the shoe before finally thinking about the shadows/scuff marks that are the finer detail of it.


You don't have to colour it in but you may want to add shading to show the lighter and darker parts of the shoe.

How to draw shoes for kids

Use this first video for the outline to your shoe

Drawing realistic trainers - Timelapse shoes drawing with pencils

Use this video to add the finer details and shading to your trainer.

Reading for Pleasure


Finally, lets sign off the day with 20 minutes of reading your school reader or a book that you are enjoying. Send a photo of your signed reading record through to me.


Well done for today everyone! I appreciate it has been different but now we are up and running in the routine, hopefully this will be easier for all of us tomorrow - see you bright and early at 8:40am on Google Meets! And don't forget to send all of your work through to me on Dojo, email or Google Classroom.
