LO: To write a portal story

Continue writing your 'The Door' story today, using the plan you created on Monday.

Remember to look back at all the work you have done on this and use what you learned in your story today:

  • Using your senses to describe what you see, hear, smell, touch or taste (these could be metaphors) (Lesson 1 - activity 1);
  • Using a pattern of three (Lesson 6 - activity 7);
  • Semi-colon for independent clauses;
  • Moving the position of adverbs to start, middle and end;
  • Writing through the eyes of a character (Lesson 7 -activity 8).

Maths Y5/6

LO: To find fractions of amounts

1) Watch this video showing how to find fractions of amounts, with a tiny bit of bus-stop division revision

Stop and start this video as often as you need to understand what it says and then stop and start the video to have a go at answering some of the questions before they are explained. Use the times tables grid if you are struggling with your times tables....then spend time on lock-down practising them!

Times tables grid

2) Here is the video that goes with the Lesson 3 White Rose maths questions - use it to help yourself solve the problems and then you can mark your work using the answers.

3) If you want a change from the White Rose video and sheets, or want an additional activity, try one of these puzzles (this will need printing, however)

Year 6 Maths

Computing / Design Technology Project

LO: To design and make a product in a range of media


Today we are starting our 'Using and Applying' computing project which includes lots of design technology.


Your job is to spend the next few weeks, researching, designing and making your ideal, ultimate, amazing bedroom, before making a digital version... if you're able to.


I have posted the whole PowerPoint today so you can see what we are doing, but will post supporting documents and resources each week.  Have fun!

Today, read slides 1,2,3,4 and then complete the Activity Sheet (you can do this in your book if you can't do it on the sheet)
