Year 6 Homework

Week 12: 30 June 2020: Home learning

Posted on Monday 29 June 2020 by Miss Wilson

Happy Tuesday, Y6!

There’s an extra task I’d like you to do this week so I’ll keep reminding you each day. It’s completely optional but it’d be amazing if we could get everyone in Moortown’s class of 2020 to take part… hint hint!!!

I’d like you to film a short clip of yourself describing a favourite memory from primary school. It could be a sports day, an in joke from class or a funny Y4 residential memory.  Get thinking!

If you want to, I’d also like you to add why you’re proud of yourself/why it’s awesome to be you and what you want to be when you grow up. 

Send your videos (they can be separate but no longer than 30 – 60 seconds) to my email address:

[email protected]

Reading – LO: create a puzzle

Using this week’s version of FirstNews, your task today is to create your own puzzle like the ones we have completed in previous home learning tasks.
This could be a crossword puzzle or a wordsearch (where the words you have to find are given as clues).
I’d like you to pick an article, within the newspaper and use this to create some clues for your puzzle. It’s a good idea to use an article that’s about the size of a page so that it is challenging enough.
Remember, the words you choose for your puzzle must be in the article!
Here is a crossword from a previous week to help you.


Writing – LO: figurative language

Using this BBC Bitesize lesson, let’s build on our poetry learning from yesterday and explore figurative language.
