Year 6 Home Learning 15.6.2020

Welcome to another week of learning Year 6! I hope you are all still well and looking forward to the week ahead. I know some of you will be going into school this week and I’m sure you are very excited about that. Just remember how important it is to follow the rules and keep everyone safe. For those of you like myself and Mr Mahal who are at home I hope you will continue to join us on Teams between 10 and 12 every day. We would also love to receive more examples of the brilliant work or hobbies you are doing at home – we do love to hear from you. Have a great week everyone!

Fiction Express

Alex and her mum are spending the summer on the Greek island of Poros. Alex loves the island and has fun exploring it with her cousin Christos. She especially loves to snorkel. But when they discover and open an ancient wooden chest, they find themselves in a very different Poros from the one they know and love. Instantly transported back to the world of ancient Greece, Alex, Christos and their new friend Phoebe must do the bidding of the goddess Hera to contain the evil they have released…

As well as the Fiction Express and BBC Bitesize options above you could try the comprehension questions below. They use the text ‘Victorious Vikings’ so you may know some of the answers already! Choose the level you feel most comfortable with and remember to add detail to your answers using examples from the text.
