Good morning everyone!


See the table below for today’s learning. 


Just a reminder that it is really important that you continue to read and practise the timetables every day. I know this is not always in the table but this mustbe done daily.


Remember if you don’t have a home learning pack you will need to complete the work in your own notebook or on a piece of paper. 


If you have any learning-related questions email me on I would be really good to see some of your learning so if an adult allows you to, you can send me pictures of your learning or things you have been doing whilst at home – I will be putting these on the website.

LI: To describe and complete number sequences.     


Write the date, Roman numeral date and the LI in your maths home learning book (or on paper if you do not have a home learning pack). 


Today, you will be focusing on number sequences.  


Your task is to identify the rule (what the sequence is going up or down in) and to complete the sequences. 


I will put some pictures of me modelling the task.


If you need more support use the link below for BBC Bitesize 


Complete at least one of the worksheets for your independent activity. 


If you are struggling to write the rule using n just write the rule in words. 


Rule = add 2





LI: To write a biography about Mary Leakey.


Yesterday, you should have done some research about Mary Leakey. If you didn’t manage to do the research I have left yesterday’s information for you to look at. 


Today’s task is for you to write a biography based on the life of Mary Leakey. This is your draft so it does not need to be perfect. 


Remember a biography is an account of someone’s life written by someone else. 


Try to include the following:

  • Features of a biography (title, subheadings, introduction)
  • Written in 3rd person
  • Written in past tense 
  • Chronological order  
  • Paragraphs
  • Appropriate level of formality  
  • Range of year 6 punctuation
  • Variety of sentence structures 
  • Year 6 spelling
  • Fronted adverbials 
  • Parenthesis
  • Joined handwriting 


Also think about including 

  • Early life 
  • Education 
  • Family / home life 
  • What made them famous
  • Key events


I have put an example of a biography and biography features mat in the resource section to help you. 


Remember this is a draft so write a line then leave a line. 



Whilst doing your research, think about:

  • Early life and education
  • Family
  • What made her famous?


Here are some website you may want to use:







LI: To understand the scientific meaning of adaptation.


Turn to the back of your literacy book and write the long date and LI. 


Today, you are going to learn the scientific meaning of adaptation. 


Your first task is to go through the PowerPoint (in the resource section). 


Once you have gone through the PowerPoint copy this table in your book.


Living things


Adaptive Traits

Polar Bear




Its white fur enables it to camouflage in the snow. 































Ash Tree







Once you have copied out the table, use the activity sheet to help you complete the table. You need to match the living thing to its habitat and its adaptive trait. I have done the first one for you. 


You can draw the pictures if you want to but drawing is not compulsory. You must copy all the writing in the adaptive traits section.


There is a challenge activity on the PowerPoint.



TT Rockstars


I have set a task on TT Rockstars for you to have a go at if you haven’t done it already. The session will expire on Friday so make sure you do it before then.


Your log in details are in your home learning packs. If you don’t know your login details then please email me.




I know PE is not on the list for you to do today however, I just wanted to let you know that Joe Wicks is doing a PE session every morning on his YouTube channel from 9am if you would like to get involved. I’ve copied the link below if anyone is interested.
