Coronavirus Home Learning


At the moment in English we are learning about writing effective narratives 

Something to write about: 

Write a report on a book or film you have enjoyed recently.


Books to read:

Anything you are excited by! I recommend Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter and The Hobbit for great adventure stories.

Skellig and Stormbreaker are also great Year 6 standard reads.

Anything by Mallorie Blackman is usually suitable for Year 6; in particular Pig Heart Boy is a wonderful story.

Finally, Magnus Finn and the Selkie Secret is highly recommended.


Activities to complete: 

Write an extended narrative about an image from that inspires them. As we have been learning about speech, I would expect two lines of dialogue to be included. Remember not to over-do it! Keep dialogue minimal to be most effective.


Toolkit for things to include:

Prepositional phrases (under, beneath, above, through...)

Subordinate clauses (Look up AWHITEBUS to see what this means - words used to link two sentences together)

Noun phrases (the brass lantern that glowed softly)


Useful Websites:

Using a range of exciting images, each day the website is updated with a new image, new reading questions to answer, sentences to uplevel in specific ways and writing activities. Sometimes, the images also include a drawing prompt to encourage the children's artistic side.
