This week's suggested timetable:


Remember to practise your timestables and spellings each day.  The Y5/6 National Curriculum words can be found in the 'Reading and spelling key words' tab at the top of the Year 5/6B class page.



Day 1: Using ratio language
Day 2: Ratio and fractions
Day 3: Introducing the ratio symbol
Day 4: Calculating ratio activity
Day 5: Calculating ratio

True or False?  There is a question for you to answer linked to each of this week's objectives.

As usual, we have uploaded the answers for this week's activities so you can mark your own. Play the roll of the teacher! You can mark it before sending it to us. We will then have a look at how you have done, and feedback as soon as we are able.  We can help with any misconceptions you may have.

Retrieval Practice:




Day 1 and Day 2: Bug Club.  You have a range of levelled fiction, non-fiction and poetry books in your Bug Club library. Remember, wherever you see a bug there is a question waiting to be answered!
Day 3: Reading for enjoyment.  Catch up on current events and politics, alongside news on entertainment, sport and computer games in this week's edition of First News.
Day 4: Historical Punishments Comprehension.
Day 5: First News 'Look Closer' Comprehension - Dogs Detect Covid Better Than Tests. 


Day 1: Time to practise your weekly spellings.  Remember to make sure you understand the meaning of each of the words.

Y5 & Y6 Spellings - words containing the letter string ‘ough’.  Complete the uploaded 'Spot the -ough words' TASK.
Y6 Spellings - words ending in '-ibly'

Day 2: Read through the Parenthesis Warm-Up POWERPOINT completing the various activities on the slides.
Day 3: Complete the uploaded 'Parenthesis Picture' TASK.  Write your own sentences that include parenthesis.  Remember to separate the parenthesis from the main sentence by surrounding it in a pair of commas.
Day 4: Can you complete the 'Bridget Bracket's challenges' TASK?  Remember the brackets go around the bit of extra information in the sentence.

Day 5: Complete the 'Double Dash' TASK.  Remember, dashes can also be used to mark out extra information which is inserted into a sentence much like commas or brackets. 

Now complete the 'Dramatic Dash' TASK.  Only one dash is required if the parenthesis comes at the end of a sentence.  A dash by itself can be used to separate something dramatic (and usually contrasting) at the end of a sentence from the start of the sentence.



Day 1: Plan a non-chronological report on an animal of your choice - like the one we did in school on Jellyfish.  You could use a spidergram to help organise your ideas.
Day 2:
Research your chosen animal.  Remember to organise the information into subject areas using the subheadings you decided on yesterday.

Day 3: Write and illustrate your report.
Day 4:
Write Now! Fuzzle. Read the uploaded TASK and write a story. Use the story starter below to help:

Far away from here, in a distant land that few people have heard the name of before (let alone visited), there lives a fuzzle. Well, fuzzles, to be exact. You see, there is a family of them!

Shy and elusive creatures, fuzzles keep themselves to themselves, and therefore are rarely seen by human beings. Their fuzzlets (young fuzzles) are even shyer, but have been spotted occasionally clinging onto their mother’s back.

As you have probably guessed, this is a story all about fuzzles. You are about to find out what extraordinary creatures they really are…

Day 5: Edit and improve your writing from yesterday to make it the best that it can possibly be.   



Get active in June! Download the Active Calendar and try to complete the daily challenges.

This week we are starting our new science topic - Living Things and Their Habitats.  Write down everything you already know about this area of Science.  You can draw diagrams, write explanations or even just list words linked to it.

Retrieval Practice: Living Things Jigsaw ACTIVITY.  Cut out each triangle and match the answers to the questions to construct the jigsaw.  

TASK: We are recapping ways of grouping organisms according to their characteristics.  Watch the uploaded slide show and think about the different features each group of animals have / share.  Use the instructions below to design a poster to describe each of the groups of animals and explain their features.  Draw a diagram of your animal and label it with its features as an example to repsresent each group.  Challenge A is easier than Challenge B.


  • Are my descriptions accurate? 
  • Have I included scientifc language?
  • Are the differences between each animal group clear?
