Are you ready to learn?

Have you had your breakfast, washed your hands and brushed your teeth?

Go to the bathroom and after that get yourself a drink.

Make sure you have pen and paper, possibly a dictionary to hand if you have one at home, and now do your home register!   Is everybody there? 

Are you ready to learn? 

Let's begin!



ALL: read your current school reading book for 20 minutes or read the next chapter of Goodnight Mister Tom

Use one of the class copies of the book and/or share/read as a whole class on the IWB using the link below - show your adult how we do paired reading. Don't forget to create those deeper, two-step questions to ask your partner reader! Are they understanding what they have read?

E-version of the book if you do not have access to a copy at home, or want to show the whole class on the IWB:

Reading Comprehension:

I am sure you are all working very hard and some of you are working quicker than others, depending on your focus, concentration and whether you have been off school or not.


Please continue with the reading comprehension questions, from the last question you have recorded in your books. Print off one between two.

Previous reading comprehension questions - print off if needed:

It's break time!

Have 20 minutes of exercise, fresh air, relaxation and a snack if you have one.

Go to the toilet, wash your hands and then return ready to learn.




ANSWERS and print off copy of question if needed:


Or print off:

It's lunchtime already!

I hope you are having something healthy, nutritious and tasty!


30 minutes of reading by an adult: demonstrating good practice and modelling fluency, pace and expression. Continue to read a little more of Goodnight Mister Tom.

Achievement Assembly:

I'm sure the adults who have been working with you this week have spotted many super stars and fabulous Y6 pupils who have been helpful and resourceful, kind and caring, and resilient superstars!

I think the adults have been pretty resilient too - you are all superstars!

Friday afternoon is MFL French and then PSHE - Citizenship

Pupils in school, your adults have the lesson content to deliver to you.


Pupils at home:

If you log into Language Angels, using your individual login details, explore and learn all about: 

Lesson 2 ‘Ma Famille’. Can you learn how to say the various nouns for your family members in French?


If you login to Purple Mash you will find 3 tasks: 

  • a multiple choice
  • a quiz race
  • true or false


all of which support your learning and knowledge about La Famille. blush I just achieved 'excellent!' level blush

To find: login, type French in the search bar, scroll down to 'other' section and there you will find the 3 icons I mention above.


You can revisit any/all of the prior learning you have experienced so far - if you practise, revisit, rehearse you will be a super fluent French speaker. Enjoy! wink


To build upon last week's learning and also to reinforce Anti-bullying today we are looking at improving effective teamwork within the class and welcoming new members to Year 6

We all need to know how new rules and previous rules affect everyone: how to be a responsible and effective citizen.

Children at home cannot carryout all of the tasks for today, but have a go at these:


Discuss which rights on the list apply to you and others in school and the ways in which they do.

For example, the right to have an opinion and to have it listened to and taken seriously – it is important we have regular class and school council meetings so we can have a say about things that are decided in class and in school.




Use a highlighter pen to select the 5 rights you think should be priorities in school. Write done, or explain to a partner; sibling or adult why you have chosen these 5 rights.

Write down your chosen rights.


Use the Imaginary Letters resource below to explore how ground rules can help prevent problems in school. Choose one of the letters, and answer the following questions:

• How is the person who wrote the letter feeling?

• What has happened that is making them feel like that?

• What solutions might you suggest?

• What ground rule(s) would help to stop this happening?




Write down any ideas you have for ways of dealing with some of the problems, your suggestions can mention both rights and responsibilities.


Can you generate your own letters with other examples of difficult situations that need ground rules.

Print off resources if required:

If any time remains:

Please rehearse the KS2 Christmas song: When Christmas Comes To Town.
