Homework for 21st March 2018

Good day Lions! As I am sure you are all chomping at the bit for more homework, I thought I would indulge you with some fun angle-based homework. We will be covering some of this in class next week. If you would like to brush up on your knowledge of angles, I would recommend going to this link here.  Once you feel confident, try the stick man homework here with the protractors I have handed out to you. On the back of this sheet, have a go at making your own stick man and why not challenge mums and dads or any other family members or friends to try and find the angles?

I have also set the mathletics target for this week at 2000 points and have allocated some algebra and angles tasks for you all to have a go at.

Best of luck Lions!

Homework for 14th March 2018

Hello Lions! I thought it would be a fun homework this week for you to play the role of teacher. As we have new display boards up in the classroom, I would like you to design a board for maths, English and one for something of your own choosing.

Try to consider what it is in English and maths that you would like to see as a visual aid in the classroom. What would help you? Are there any areas you feel you need to work on?

Once you have chosen what it is you would like on the display boards, then consider how you would like to present it. You want to have a space that draws the eye in.

Please use a sheet of A4 (landscape) for each board. Write a paragraph to go with each to explain the reasons for your choices and why you think this would be an effective learning tool.

Best of luck!

Homework for 28/02/18

This week for homework I would like you to write a kenning poem. A kenning is a two word phrase describing an object often using a metaphor. A kenning poem is made up of several lines of kennings to describe something or someone.

Here is an example:















by Sue Cowling


  • Write a kenning poem about two animals of your choosing;
  • Each kenning should have a hyphen;
  • It must be at least 10 lines long;
  • Each line must start with a capital letter.


Write your poems on a blank piece of A4. You should also illustrate and decorate your poem.

In addition, please achieve 2000 points on Mathletics. Remember to choose areas that you feel the need to practise, as opposed to the easy ones!

Homework due 7th February

As Benjamin Franklin wisely remarked: “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”With this in mind, for the next installment of homework, please complete a detailed plan for your 500 word story, which we will write next week in class. There is a sheet for you here with lots of guidance and handy tips. Please think about all the things we have covered over the course of Year 6 thus far, for example on settings, characters, openers, planning for punctuation and so on.

There is a planning template for you here but if you want to design your own, by all means go ahead.

Good luck everyone!

Homework due 31st January

Hello once again Lions. As part of our “Animals Including Humans” science topic, we will be looking next week at how we stay healthy. I would like you all to make a poster with the title “A Healthy Life”, in which you should mention the importance of a balanced diet and regular exercise for the body. I look forward to seeing what you produce!


Homework due in 24th January

Hello and whit like?

In preparation for Burns Night on 25 January, I would like you to choose from one of the following activities:

  • Prepare a Powerpoint presentation on Robert Burns or Burns Night. This can be printed or emailed to the school.
  • Translate one of his poems (such as “Up in the Morning Early” or “A Red, Red Rose”) from the Scots dialect to Standard English. This needs to be written in your finest handwriting. For the more courageous amongst you, this can also be read to the class if you so choose.
  • Memorise a poem to present to the class. Dae ye talk Scots?

Guid luck!


Homework due in 17/01

As it it Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on the 15th of this month, I would like you to design an information poster on Martin Luther King Jr. with lots of interesting facts, details and images. Try to get an idea of why he is an important figure in American history and why he might tie in with our “In an Ideal World” topic. Good luck!

Homework for 13th December

In Year 6, we find nothing gets us in the Christmas mood quite like a bit of maths. So as a festive treat, why not have a go at the BODMAS Maths Mosaic. Sadly, I can’t put these online without the answers also revealing themselves, so if anyone needs another sheet, just ask me in class and I can arrange this. Remember, all you need to do for BODMAS is remember what the letters stand for as this tells you the order for the calculations. Enjoy!


Following the conclusion of our class book “The Journey” by Francesca Sanna, I would love to read all your thoughts on it. I have attached two book review templates – you only need to choose one to complete. Should you wish to include an illustration from the book, I would love to see that too.  Happy writing!
