Year 6 English: Under the Lights

Overview: Ash is in year six. He loves costumes, lights and smoke machines, and standing centre stage with all eyes on him. However, on the opening night of the school play, it all becomes a little too much and his courage fails him. Feeling alone and under pressure, Ash reaches out to his friends and family. This beautifully written story explores the themes of anxiety, stress, friendships and changes. There are weekly activities included, perfect for doing at home. Resources can be printed or viewed on screen.

1.Spellings: Twinkle Spelling Scheme Term 3b on HMS website(See for further resources). There are also short weekly spelling quizzes.

2. Reading:

If possible, read the Under the Lights e-book available on our website, however, if you are not able then you can still complete the weekly reading comprehensions contained in the unit. Pupils should also read their Accelerated Reader (library) book each day and record their reading in their Reading Record. You can quiz your book on the Accelerated Reader link on the HMS website.

3. Grammar and Punctuation: Complete the weekly grammar, punctuation and spelling activities in this unit. Most of the sheets are differentiated for different abilities- you can choose the level you are most comfortable with.

4. Writing: Summer term in Year 6 is usually focussed on developing creative writing skills. Therefore, each week contains several opportunities to develop these skills in a variety of text types. You can choose which you do each week- or have a go at all of them.


□   Read the e-book Under the Lights (not essential)

□   Complete weekly reading comprehensions

□   Complete the weekly grammar, punctuation and spelling activities

□   Practise your joined handwriting skills- using the booklet

Shading, tone, accurate outlines, shadow, areas of light and dark. 
Students may complete any of the following tasks:
1. 100 Things To Draw- An unstructured set of ideas for drawings that can be carried out at home. 
2.ArtForKidsHub weblink- A fab YouTube channel where students can follow step-by-step tutorials to draw their chosen image. Mostly based on current popular characters.
3. Artist Study- Choose an artist and find out facts and information about them to create an Artist Study facetfile.
4.Drawing Tasks- That focus on developing technique.
5. Shading Practise- Building on previously learnt school content to achieve areas of light and dark with a pencil.

Year 6 Design Technology
Pupils are being asked to view the honey bees power point first. This is really crucial they readthrough the full power point. If pupils are in school then they must watch the full power point.

Pupils must watch the video in the link on page 10 of the power point.
It is entitled ‘How do honey bees make honey?’ This can be found on Youtube or in the following

Each pupil then uses the pupil sheet ‘How honey is made activity sheet’, and explains in the
steps the process of honey being made by bees.

Pupils are to be given a blank A4 paper. They must use the power point ‘All about the life cycle of
a bee’ and create a labelled diagram to show the full lifecycle of a honey bee.

Pupils can then use the Shrill Carden Bee comprehension to read and then answer the questions
about the Shrill Carden bees.

XTN: Pupils can have a go at making the honey biscuits home. Please feel free to send in email
photos of the completed biscuits into school and show me how you did.

Year 6 Languages

A new pack of activities to support learning French.  These can be used alone, or alongside the website/ app Duolingo as previously recommended.   The online lessons from the Oak National Academy can also give some listening and pronunciation practice as they are guided and include a video lesson.  I have checked and it is fine for our year 6 to access the Year 7 lessons.

Hi Everyone…. Hope you're keeping fit and well!

We know you’ve been up to loads of active stuff, going for walks, working in the garden, jogging, cycling, Joe Wicks and much more so keep all of that going! It’s important to stay as physically active as possible during this time.

There are a few other things you can have a go at here too, especially if you have to stay indoors, designing your own equipment and games as well as trying some of the challenges from Active Northumberland and the School Games.

Have fun with your work everyone and Stay Safe.

Year 6 R.E – Christianity & Hinduism

Christianity (Previous lessons)

Week 1

This week, I would like you to look at ‘The Feeding of the 5000’. Begin by reading through the PowerPoint slides which tell the story. Then think about the question asked at the end (maybe discuss this with somebody at home if possible). You are then going to pick out the six most important parts of the story and turn them into a storyboard (using the template provided). You can also add illustrations. When you have completed this, have a go at writing a paragraph for the extension task, thinking about a time you have found it easy and a time you have found it difficult to share and why.

Week 2

This week, you are going to be looking at Jesus’ miracles. Begin by reading through the PowerPoint which tells you about some of the miracles Jesus is thought to have performed. Once you have done this, pick which miracle you would like to write about. You are then going to write a newspaper article for the miracle you have chosen (I have attached a template to help you). Don’t forget to use the typical conventions of a newspaper – if you are unsure have a look at this website/video:


Lessons for final term

Week 3 & 4

This week you will be looking at the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. You need to start by having a really good look at the opening image as the questions are based on this. Then you need to answer the questions which follow (there is quite a lot of questions to answer so I have set this task over two weeks). Remember to answer the questions in full, clear sentences wherever possible. You might need to use a Dictionary to help you define some of the words. The first set of questions all relate to your understanding of the image. They are then followed by vocab and SPAG tasks which link to the story but will also further your English based skills. The answers are included so you can mark them with a green pen when you are finished.



Week 5

Pupils have previously studied Hinduism and as part of their home learning should have completed a Hinduism research project. In this lesson, they will be looking at the Hindu creation story. Use the PowerPoint provided to go through the story, stopping regularly for discussion. Pupils should then stick the story cards in order on paper (A3 would probably be best if possible) and write what is happening underneath. There is a word mat to further assist pupils who may need it.

Lesson 6

Lesson 6 is all about Hindu worship (Puja). Begin by going through the PowerPoint provided to learn some key information about Puja. Pupils should then complete the differentiated reading comprehension activity on Puja (the answers are provided so they could mark them in green pen when they are finished). To finish the lesson, pupils can label and colour a Puja tray (using the sheet attached).
