Here is your work for today. Any queries, just email me at

9am - 9:30am: PE

PE with Joe Wicks (web link below)

9:30am - 10:30am Maths

For the first 15 minutes you are going to warm up your maths brain using the link below. 

For the rest of this session, you are going to be playing ‘An Odd Game’. Document below. Don’t forget to use the Year 6 instructions and resources.

10:30am - 11am BREAK

11am - 12pm: Literacy: Explore Ernest Shackleton and one of the most remarkable survival stories of all time by reading (page 5 Ernie’s Endurance to the end of Trial 8 on page 7) of Science of Survival: Ouch! Extreme Feats of Human Endurance by Georgina Phillips (document below). Further information about Ernest Shackleton can be found here Britannica Kids – Ernest Shackleton (link below). Now watch and enjoy a short video clip based on Shackleton’s 1914 expedition here National Geographic – Shackleton’s Journey (link below). After watching, create a narrative (or voice-over) which could accompany this clip. You may wish to do this as: • The Story of Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition – write a story of the expedition which can be read alongside the clip. OR• Imagining the clip is for a film trailer, create the voice over advertising the film to be released in the cinema. Once you have written the script, have a go at reading it over the clip – making sure it fits in the time and you get all your information across to your viewer and listener.

12pm- 1pm LUNCH
