Hello Y5/6.

We hope you’ve had a great weekend.

Here is your Home Learning for week commencing 22nd June 2020. We hope you have a great week and hopefully the weather will brighten up this week - Wednesday and Thursday are looking good on the forecast! 



This week, you will notice tasks at the bottom of this page which are for Y6 ONLY. They are linked to secondary school work so there is no need for y5 to complete these activities. 


Please remember to log onto Purple Mash to complete some of your Home Learning Tasks this week.


Have a good week and we look forward to helping you with your learning.




In maths this week we are looking at decimals.  You will be subtracting, multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.  

Use the links below to take you to each lesson for this week.  These can be printed out to work on, or you could write your answers on paper.  The answers will be posted at the end of the week, so keep your work safe and check how many you got right.   


This link ( will show you a short video, for each day, to give a short explanation of your task.


We will put the answer sheets up each day so that you can check how you got on.

If you need any help, you can email Mr Yates on Purple Mash to support you using 2email.

Answers for this week's maths.


In writing, we would like you to write a film review.

Watch this video from YouTube:


It's by an animator called UZAIR and the film is named Piper - which is a type of seabird.

The animation has won many awards. However, that doesn't mean that you have to like it.


In a film review you would firstly explain the basic thread of the movie: the meaning behind it and the key characters. You might mention the year it was created and the names of actors/actresses that featured in the film. You might discuss the good parts about the movie, which was the most exciting part and why, did the characters play a good role etc. You may also explain what specific parts/reasons you didn't like the film. Obviously, if the movie or film was terrible, you would write up a more critical review.


We have put a film review of The Lion King below for you to see first as an example.


Create your own film review of PIPER using the Purple Mash link below.

Please remember to save and submit your work so we can read through it and offer you some feedback.

In science this week, you can watch a video to help with learning about how we see colours. There's a science mini investigation to do, but if you haven't got any type of coloured plastic to make it work, don't worry, there is also a game to play below that.  Enjoy it and don't forget to take a look at the Purple Mash Science Blog.
