Year 6 Home Learning 22.06.2020

Good Morning Year 6,


We hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of home learning! Here are today’s tasks:


PE: As usual we would like you to be doing some physical activities. Tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout, go for a walk with your family or play some games out in the garden.


English: We would like to create a year book for you to have as a special keepsake of your time at Parkside School. To do this, we need your help.  You need to complete your page of the year book by answering the statements below – you can either type your answers directly into an email to your class teacher, or complete them in the word document and attach that to an email.

My name:

My birthday:

My secondary school:

My hobbies: (art/craft activities, cooking/baking, games you play, types of book you like to read, sports you do etc)

My friends: (who are they, why they are special to you, what you and your friends enjoy doing)

My best memory of my time at Parkside: (this doesn’t have to be a Year 6 memory… It may be a school play you did, a performance in Parkside’s Got Talent, something fun that happened on PGL, a school trip you went on etc)

Fun fact about me: (Do you have a special talent? Can you speak another language? Dreams and ambitions you may have etc)

Year book template to complete

It is really important that we receive this from everyone in Year 6 as we don’t want to miss anyone out of the Year Book.


Reading: This week we are going to be reading ‘A bit of a Hero’. Today read Chapter 1 and answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then see if you can put these events in the correct order:



Maths: We revising our work on area and perimeter today. As usual, watch the clip then answer the questions. Once you have completed the task you can check your answers, but no peeking beforehand!




World War II Project:

Over the next few weeks, we are going to learn about World War II. Each week we will set a variety of activities for you to pick from. Some of these activities may take you longer than an afternoon so you don’t have to do them all.


1. Research and write a report about the causes of World War II.

2. Research what the ‘Blitz’ was. What was done to try and protect London from the Blitz?

3. Create a Blitz picture – see the examples below:

4. Lots of children were evacuated from London to the countryside during the war. They had to leave their families behind and live with new people, which must have been very scary. Research the reasons why they were evacuated. What possessions did they take with them? What things would you take with you today if you were evacuated? Imagine that you were an evacuee and write a letter home to your family explaining what it is like to live in the countryside.

5. Anderson shelters were built in peoples gardens to protect them from bombs. Research what an Anderson shelter looked like and how it protected people. Try and build your own Anderson shelter like the pictures below:

Remember to send us photos of your work!

Have a lovely day.

Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
