English - Writing Tasks


  • Using the attached Year 6 TalkforWriting Booklet, complete Activities 1 and 2


  • If you want to stretch yourself, use the Year 6 Greater Depth TalkforWriting Booklet instead - Activity 1 (but not the art task)


Please do not go on to other activities in the booklets because we will be setting these in future weeks.

English - Reading Comprehension


Complete the non-fiction comprehension activity below, which will help you with your Science topic this term.


You should choose your level of difficulty. The text is either 1 star (*) or 2 (**) or 3 (***) stars, which indicates the level of difficulty. The question sheets are also split into 1 star (*) or 2 (**) or 3 (***) stars. 3 stars is the most challenging. 


The answers to the questions are also available with the question sheets, but try not to look at them until you have completed the task and you are ready to mark your work.


Remember to give full detailed answers. Where appropriate use "I think....because..." and use evidence from the text to support your point or opinion.
