Book Review


Think about a book you’ve enjoyed reading or listening to. You're going to review that book and the author and we can add some of these to our book review folder once we are back in school.


Things to consider:

  • What is the title of the book?

  • Who is the author (and illustrator)?

  • Give a brief explanation of what happens in the book. Be careful not to reveal too many spoilers!

  • Give two reasons why your friends should read the book. You could use some of these sentence starters:

    You definitely need to read this book because...

    This book is essential on your book shelf because...

    Every year 6 pupil should read this book because...

  • Illustrate your favourite scene.
  • Conclude by summarising the book in three words.


Below is a template you could use if you'd like.

I can't wait to see your reviews! 


Creative Writing

Watch this video link to an old John Lewis advert:  


In this advert, we see a small boy and his pet penguin, they do everything together, but we soon see that the penguin has a yearning for something more.  The penguin is looking for a friend a bit more like himself.  In the end, we have the big reveal and we find out that Monty is a stuffed penguin and the little boy's parents have bought him a friend.  Both the boy and the penguin are happy! 

Writing Opportunities:

  • Write a diary entry for the day the boy met Monty
  • Write a diary entry in 1st person as the boy describing his concerns about Monty.
  • Research and write a non-chronological report about penguins. 
  • Rewrite the story replacing the penguin with a different animal. 
  • Or any other creative ideas you may have! 


What is Gratitude?


Gratitude is the quality of being thankful. It means you're ready to show appreciation for the kindness and ready to return the kindness. Someone who feels gratitude is thankful for what they have and doesn't constantly seek more than what they have.


Gratitude is one of the many positive emotions we experience. It's about focusing on what's good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have instead of wishing we had something else. 


Gratitude is noticing and appreciating the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends and family. Some people who have very little are still able to feel gratitude for what they do have. 


Your task:

We know that Covid-19 has affected lots of us and it is very easy to feel upset/frustrated with the way the world is. So I would like you to have a go at thinking about things that you are grateful for in your lives.


There is a template that you could use, or you could simply make a list, design a poster or present them however you like.


I'll start us of...

- I'm thankful for our lovely class which makes my job being your teacher a really lovely job to have!

Guided Reading


For your Guided Reading activity today, I would like you to watch this Christmas advert created by Disney last year and answer the comprehension questions below.


Link to the advert:


Short Burst Writing


Chimpanzees can be found across central and West Africa. These great apes share 98.7 percent of our genetic blueprint – this means that along with bonobos, they are our closest living relatives. Chimpanzees are highly social beings, living in communities of several dozen animals. These communities are led by an alpha male. Although they normally walk on all fours, chimpanzees can stand and walk upright.


In this clip, we will see some orphaned chimps getting ready to go to the forest for the first time.


Short Burst Writing:


Using what you have learnt from the clip, create a ‘Chimp Survival Guide’ for young chimps entering into the wild for the first time.

You could include the following information:

  • What they’ll need to avoid
  • What skills they’ll need to survive
  • What their new home will look like
  • What they’ll be able to do for fun
  • How they’ll feel when they reach their new forest home


Christmas Around the World


Use the PowerPoint below to find out how some countries celebrate Christmas.


Your task:

Create a poster about Christmas traditions in one of the countries we have looked at or a country you would like to research.

Friday 10th December




Rounding is sometimes a difficult concept to grasp and therefore it is important that we revisit and consolidate the skills as much as possible throughout the year. 


Below is a question sheet to challenge the concept of rounding. 


This week we have had a go at innovating on our own warning tales with the focus of setting.


Below is a PowerPoint with several activities to spark your creativity before you have a go at creating a story based around this image.




We have reached the end of our work on the Industrial Revolution and we had lots of fun exploring the designs of Isambard Kingdom Brunel.


In class, we looked at:

  • Clifton Suspension Bridge
  • SS Great Britain
  • Great Western Railway


But Isambard Kingdom Brunel managed to shape the engineering world with more ideas than just those.


Your task:

Have a go at researching and presenting something else that Brunel managed to design over his extraordinary life.
