Good morning everyone. I hope you are all fit and well and ready for some new challenges.

Here are today’s tasks – I have taken them from the new learning packs that are available for collection in school, so if you haven’t picked yours up yet, you need to ask an adult if they could go to school and get it at the first available opportunity. If you haven’t collected the new pack, simply have a go at whatever tasks haven’t been finished in the old pack.

So here we go with the new pack:

Comprehension: As it was VE day last Friday, it’s probably a good idea to find out a little bit about the celebration.

· Find the comprehension sheet entitled ‘VE Day’.

· Read the two pages carefully and then answer the questions on the answer sheet provided. (if you need any extra room for some of your answers, then simply write them on the back of the answer pages.

Extra Task: Find the sheet entitled ‘Design a VE Day Medal’.

· Look at the annotated picture of the World War One medal that is on the top of the page and read the notes in boxes either side. These notes explain about why certain images, words and colours were used and what they signify.

· Design a suitable medal for a British soldier who served in the Second World War. Think about the colour of the ribbon used – why would you use that colour/those colours (perhaps you could use red white and blue vertical or horizontal stripes or a camouflage design or a Union Flag or a dazzle ship design –the choice is entirely yours. What image would you stamp on the front of the medal itself? A plane, a ship, a tank, a rifle – a dove, Winston Churchill or perhaps his Victory sign or maybe even an image of the King? What would be engraved on the back? (You will need to draw the back of the medal on the back of the sheet).

Spelling: Find the new spelling word-searches pack.

· Look at the first wordsearch and find the words in the box on the grid above.

· In your exercise book, list the words in alphabetical order. If you are not sure what each word means, look them up in a dictionary and copy out the definition – you will need to know for the next task.

· Now use each word in a good, Year 6 sentence. Perhaps your sentences could include some expanded nouns phrases, a main and subordinate clause, a fronted adverbial or a relative clause. They could also contain some modal verbs too. Example:

The boy, who always listened in class and completed his homework on time, made excellent progress with his studies whilst in Year Six.

Main clause relative clause

Maths: Find the puzzle page – Crossnumber Puzzles. On this page are three Crossnumber puzzles which get progressively harder. They work in the same way as a crossword – there are clues for you to solve and you write the answer in the correct boxes on the puzzle. Clues are either across or down.

· Using the four rules of number ( + X - ÷ ) solve the clues and correctly fill in the spaces on Puzzle A. You will need to show your workings out in your exercise book.

· Now have a go at solving puzzle B in the same way.

Reading: Remember to find a quiet place, where you won’t be disturbed, and read a book of your choice for at least 20 minutes.

Stay safe

Mr. A.
