Year 6 Learning Tasks
Focus this week on writing multi clause sentences. Using the image below, practise writing simple and complex sentences, try:
1. Adding a relative clause.
2. Adding a subordinating clause.
3. Joining two simple sentences with a FANBOY or even replacing the conjunction with a semi colon.
Try to use a range of punctuation: brackets, dashes and commas.
Continue to use the Year 5/6 spelling list (the words we had on our walls).
Get yourself a pen or pencil, a piece of paper, the spelling list and a timer.
Quick Write: How many words can you write in one minute?
How many ways can you find to group the
spellings? Look at prefixes or suffixes eg.
Words ending in -ious or –itial. Words that
are all adjectives or all nouns.
Please read daily. Encourage your parents to read with you. Read a range of fiction and non-fiction!
The activities on this grid are a great place to start with learning from home.
For more daily activity suggestions and challenges, please go onto the links that are on the Year 6 page.

Continuing with our topic of Electricity, we would like you to research conductors and insulators.
A conductor is a material that allows energy (heat or electricity) to pass through it easily. An insulator is a material that does not allow electricity, heat or sound to pass through it easily.

Take a moment and think about this quote. What does it mean to you? What could you try a little bit harder with? Is there something that you avoid because you find it difficult? Do you think that will make it easier or harder next time?
