English: Day 2 – For anyone who needs an extra day to finish:
We are going to continue with retelling the animation ‘Soar’
Watch the film here: https://vimeo.com/148198462
Use your sequencing grid you completed yesterday as a plan to help you with your writing.
Retell the story, from the girl’s point of view. We are looking for:
– Use of first person (you are writing as the girl)
– A range of punctuation
– Exciting vocabulary
– Different sentence lengths
– Writing that implies how the characters are feeling rather than just telling the reader e.g. Mara held her breath as the plane took flight.
– Correct spellings
Here is an example written by another Year 6 child to help you: Soar Example

History: Lesson 5: The Mongol Attack on Baghdad
Today you will start to learn about the Mongol attack on Baghdad in 1258 and how it destroyed the city
Below is a link to the clip – Mongols: Zenith of Empire – Siege of Baghdad 1258 and Battle of Ain Jalut 1260 DOCUMENTARY
It gives you a little bit more detail about who the Mongols were and what they did.
Art: An introduction in Islamic Art – I have attached a short presentation and also an instruction worksheet which guides you through an example of a geometric repeating pattern. This is something we will be focusing on once we return to school.
Have a great day,
Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
