Year 6 Home Learning 25.06.2020

Good Morning Year 6,


PE: Tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout or make up your own exercise video and get your family to join in with your moves!


English: We are going to do some writing based on the clip ‘Mourning Dove’.

Watch the film here:

Write what happened to the female soldier from the point of view of another soldier who was on patrol with her at the time the incident happened. You will need to:

1. Write in first person (pretend you were the soldier who was with her)
2. Give details of what happened and what you did to try and help her.
3. Share what the female solider said to you after she was injured.
4. What you said to her fiancé who came to see her at the hospital.

Make sure your handwriting is neat and that you take care with your spellings and check your punctuation.


Reading: Read chapter 4 of ‘Bit of a Hero’ then answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then have a go at the open-ended questions below, linked to the chapter.

Open ended questions


Maths: Today we are learning how to work out the volume of a cuboid.

Watch the clip and then answer the questions below. When you have finished you can use the answers to mark your work – but no peeking at the answers until you are finished!




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
