History 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. 


We will continue with the 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.


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



Yesterday we looked at converting decimals to fractions, today we will do the opposite: fractions to decimals.


So working backwards from yesterday, we know that a fraction needs to be over either 10 or 100 to be able to convert it into a decimal. If we have 2/5 as a fraction, I must convert it into either tenths or hundredths. See images below for the three steps on converting.

Sometimes it is easier to conevrt into hundredths rather than tenths as you can see that the denominator is a factor of 100. See the example below.
Complete the worksheet below in your books before lookng at the challenge sheet explaining your thinking.



Mrs Brant will be leading us through some writing 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 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.


Hello Year 6! Great flowcharts and vocabulary yesterday – these will be super useful for tomorrow’s lesson.

When we write our action sequence tomorrow, we may need to include a little description of our character in there too – so the reader can imagine him doing the things we write about. Sometimes we can just use adjectives to describe, but sometimes it can be more effective to use lots of different ways. A way of keeping it interesting, can be the ‘show, not tell’ technique.

‘Show, not tell’ means the reader does not need to be told some things outright, they can guess the details from clues that we give them. Take a look at my examples;

Instead of:

Mrs Brant was very tired.

We could use:

Mrs Brant’s eyelids drooped as she let out a lengthy yawn.


Another example is instead of:

He was feeling too hot.

We could use:

The sweat dripped from his forehead onto his crimson red cheeks.


Authors use these techniques quite a lot - you may have been asked many comprehension questions about what a character is feeling from the clues you are given. Now it’s your turn to write the clues!


TASK – We will be working in our blue exercise books, rule off and write today’s date. Your title is, ‘Show, Not Tell’. Remember to write an ‘E’ in your margin.


Today, I would like you to use each of the feelings/adjectives below as sub-headings. Under each sub-heading, I would like you to come up with at least 3 clues that would show the reader that a character was feeling that way, without having to tell them. Here’s an example of how I would like it laid out;



  • Eyes slowly blinking/struggling to keep them open
  • Yawning
  • Stretching arms wide
  • Slumped in seat


Come up with clues for the following:










Sure you’ll be able to come up with some great ideas!

Hey Year 6, hope everyone is keeping well. What did you think of those headlines yesterday? Mixed messages can feel confusing and it can be hard to know what is the truth sometimes. Hope the Bitesize clip helped, and remember to always question what you read – can it be trusted?

Today we are going to dive deeper into how these headlines can make someone feel and behave.

TASK – Please see Google Classroom for today’s task.

Look forward to seeing what you think! Mrs Brant 😊

Reading with Mr O


Log back into Google Classroom for a live reading of our class reader "Blitzed" by Robert Swindells. See what happens next with George and his adventure!


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



Having explored how World War 1 ended and how Hitler came to power, we are going to start looking at World War 2 and what caused the war to start. Look through the PowerPoint on Google Classroom and then complete the timeline activity on Google Classrooms. If you are having any difficulty accessing it, please let me know.

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. You can obviously also use Bug Club as well now. Details of how to login are on the main class page.


Well done for today everyone! 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.
