This week's Yr 6 Home Learning

As part of this week's enterprise project, have a look at the video below to remind you of the main features that make a successful enterprise project.


We will be thinking more about these characteristics as we create our end of year project to help raise money for an end of year treat.

Previous home learning

Watch this video to refresh your knowledge of algebra:


Now try these questions:


Have a go at playing a few games using the link below to remind you how to convert a range of measures
Then have a go at answering these word problems to deepen your understanding:
1. Kate has a piece of ribbon one metre long. She cuts off 30 centimetres. How many centimetres of ribbon are left?
2. Holly takes half an hour to walk from home to school. She arrives at school at 8:25am. At what time did she leave home?
3. A cake weighs 560 grams. If I cut the cake into 8 equal slices, how much would I expect each slice to weigh approximately?
4. Kirsty ran a race in one and a half minutes. Mina took 10 seconds longer. How many seconds did Mina take to run the race?
5. A piece of cheese has a mass of 350g. Steven takes a bite from the cheese then weighs it again. The scales say 235g. How much did Steven bite off the cheese?
6. A class wants to investigate how much chocolate is eaten in 1 day (by people in their class). 12 people eat 25g of chocolate, people eat 35g of chocolate and people eat 50g of chocolate. How many grams of chocolate have been eaten in one day?
7. Megan wants to fill a bucket with water. A bucket holds 6 litres. A jug holds 500 millilitres. How many jugs of water does Megan need to fill an empty bucket? 

As we come close to the end of our science unit this term, we will begin to look at different ways to show off everything we have learnt about the Circulatory System.


Work through this video and complete the short tasks to give you a reminder of everything we have learnt about our bodies this term:

Welcome back to Spring term! To kick start our history unit this term, have a go at a World War II crossword below:

Friday 7th January


Welcome back! As part of our core text this term – ‘Letters of the Lighthouse’ – we will be exploring the life of Olive and Cliff as evacuees during the World War. To help deepen our understanding of life as an evacuee during these times, explore the websites below to give you more information before having a go at designing your own ‘suitcase of an Evacuee’ – have a look at the picture below to give you some ideas.

Relative clauses | English - Grammar

Watch this video if you need help with relative clauses: 

Remember, an embedded clause goes in the middle of a main clause, just after the noun


Activity 1

Write the sentence out with commas around the embedded clause. 

1) The man who hadn’t eaten for hours went to get some lunch. 

2) The tree that had lost its leaves waved in the wind. 

3) The river which ran for miles thrashed against the bank. 


Activity 2

Identify the relative pronoun in each sentence: 

1) The tickets, which I’ve already paid for, are still valid. 

2) Lucy, whose car had broken down, didn’t go. 

3) Maximus fell to the floor where he stayed for a couple of hours.


Activity 3

Add an embedded clause to each of the following sentences: 

1) Derek went up to bed. 

2) Mrs Jones marched up to her office. 

3) Mr Stevens sat and drank his Dr Pepper.


Activity 4

Answer the following questions:

1.  Dave, who was the chair of governors, walked around the school building. Why does this relative clause use the pronoun who and not whose? 

2. My sister, who eats meat, is a vegetarian. 

What is wrong with the relative clause in this sentence? 

For the past few weeks in maths, we have been focusing on adding and subtracting fractions. These skills are important to learn and remember as they will help us when we move onto more problem-solving tasks later on in the term!
Have a look at the videos below to remind you how to complete both concepts, then have a go at the questions below:
Remember the steps for each of the calculations:
Step 1: Add the wholes
Step 2: Add the fractions
Step 3: Put it back together
1.  1 2/5 + 2 3/10 = 
2.  4 1/4 + 1 11/20 = 
3.  3 5/9 + 1 3/4 =

Adding Fractions

Previous Year 6 Home Learning

Warm up:

Suffixes practice:

Use the root word 'vary'. 

Can you add different suffixes to change the meaning of the word?

e.g. vary becomes various.


Find 6 new words and write them in sentences to show you understand the meaning.


Need some help?


This week we have been learning all about fractions: how to simplify them and find equivalent fractions. We have also looked at converting fractions from mixed numbers to improper fractions and vice versa.


Have a look at the video below that will help remind you how to do this:

Mixed to Improper -

Improper to Mixed -

Have a go at the questions below to help put what you’ve learnt this week into practise:


  1. 41/7
  2. 61/9 
  3. 2 1/3
  4. 4 5/6



Change a Mixed Number to an Improper Fraction

Change an Improper Fraction into a Mixed Number

This week we have been learning about BIDMAS and how to solve calculations that use more than one operation.

Look at the video below that will help remind you how to do this:

BIDMAS video

Have a go at the questions below to help put what you’ve learnt this week into practice:

1.    25 x 4 – 23 = 

2.    3+ (2 x 3) = 

3.    110 / 11 + 65 = 

4.    5 x 6 - 3x 2 =
