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.



Today we will be continuing with sequences.


Reminder: The key part of looking at sequences is to make sure you find a rule that works for all of the steps. To find a rule, always look at how you can get from one number to the next, for example below. To get from 3 to 14, I need to add 11. I can test this by seeing if I add 11 to 14, that I get 25.


3, 14, 25, ___, 47


If you are missing the first numbers in sequence, just start at a later point, it will still work! E.g. If we have the following sequence, then we can look at how do we get from 40 to 28? I subtract 12. Test this on 28 to 16 and if it works you can go backwards from there.


___, ____, 40, 28,  16.


Have a go at the number sequences sheets below. Either print them or copy them into your maths books.



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 again Year 6! Great flowcharts yesterday, hope the video with formal and informal was a good memory refresher! We will be using both formal and informal writing for our police incident reports on Wednesday.


Today, we will be using direct speech to put together a statement from our office worker that can be included in tomorrow’s report. When we write direct speech, we need to imagine the character saying the words out loud – we write in first person (I, me, we). Often, when we speak, we use informal language. We always have to punctuate it thoroughly, so that a reader knows a character is speaking. This can be structured in different ways. Take a look at the examples below:

Before we go on to today’s task, let’s watch the clip again to remind ourselves of what we will be writing about. This time I want you to watch it and imagine yourself in the role of the man (I know you guys would never be as crafty as our character, but try to think about his perspective). Think about the following –

  • What were you thinking/feeling as you stood at the photocopier?
  • What were you thinking when the photocopier printed the black circle? Why did you look at your watch?
  • When did you realise there was something strange happening?
  • Why did you take the chocolate from the vending machine?
  • Why did you try to enter the safe?
  • How did you feel when you were stuck inside the safe?
  • Who got you out?


TASK – Today we are working in our blue exercise books, please write today’s date and the title, ‘Direct Speech – Statement’. Don’t forget your ‘E’ in the margin.

I would like you to write a statement for the police, that answers each of the above questions. The answers should be written using appropriate speech punctuation, and written as if you are the man in the clip. This means writing in first person – I, me.


This will be useful for tomorrow’s incident report! Look forward to seeing what you think our character was thinking! Mrs B 😊



Hello again Year 6 – loved learning more about you yesterday! What a fascinating group of people we all are!


Today we will be considering the following question – how can we express ourselves?


Expressing yourself can sometimes just mean being unapologetically you – wearing what you want to, making the decisions right for you, doing the things you enjoy. All without feeling the need to apologise or fit in with others. This can be hard sometimes as fitting in can feel important. Although we can’t make everyone happy with our decisions, often if we do what we feel is right for us, others will be accepting and attitudes can change.


Expressing yourself can also be achieved through other means – art, dance, music, drama or writing. These can be done individually, or in groups that identify with each other. Often these channels can also help us better communicate, collaborate and build communities.


Right now, everyone is experiencing all sorts of emotions and feelings related to lock down and the pandemic. The great thing about self-expression and the arts is that not even lockdown can stop people from expressing who they are; art, music, drama, dance and writing are still there for us. We may have to adapt what we would normally do, but we can still express and connect in different ways. Here are some examples of expression that have still occurred, despite the pandemic:

And there are plenty more!


TASK – Today we will use the medium of art to express our emotions. You can either complete this task on plain paper or in your blue books (remember a PSHE in your margin).

Watch the clip below, then create your own feelings map. You can use different shapes, lines colours of mediums if you like!

I will create my own to share with you all too! Look forward to seeing how you express your emotions today!

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!



So now we have looked at The Blitz, we know a bit more about what life was like for people living in Britain during World War 2. However, one of the biggest changes to life in Britain that affected the way everybody lived was released by Lord Woolton (the Minister for Food) announcing that everybody had to ration what they were using. This mainly involved food but did also include petrol and clothes.


Watch the video on the link below to explore rationing.

First of all complete the Weekly Food Plan of what you normally eat in a week - you could base this off of last week or any normal week.

Now look through the lesson presentation below.
Complete the activity mentioned on the presentation of colouring in any meals you wouldn't have been able to have during rationing in red.

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.
