Home Learning Tasks


Welcome to the Home Learning Area for Year 6. Below is a list of activities for your children to complete throughout the week, at their own leisure. 

The Home Learning Area will be updated for the start of every Monday and feedback will be provided on the tasks completed by the children (remember to check pupil Hwbmail).

Feel free to send any pictures or videos of the work and I will display them below.

Thank you very much for your co-operation during this time.

Mr Williams.  


Class Connectivity


To keep our class connected and to see what we all have been doing during these unprecedented times, I would like you to send me either a picture or small video of something you have been up to. This could include a walk, exercise routines, painting, etc - anything you have been up to and want to share. I will then put all of these moments into a video montage to share with you at the end of each week.  


This week, Toby has a sent a video of his 'Gravity Defying Lego'!

I have set you four tasks this week. If you do not have time to complete them all, then only complete what you can. Complete the tasks in the order shown below. They will be available from Monday 8th June until Sunday 14th June. 


Make sure you select the 'Lesson' first, this will help you understand the topic, before completing the 'Online Homework' task.


Remember - You can retry the questions as many times as you want to try and improve your score. This is important as it will tell me if you have understood the task.


  1. Roman Numerals
  2. Best buys and value for money
  3. Line graphs
  4. Distance time graphs

Book 1: Rain, Puddles and Poetry

Book 2: The Aztecs

If you would like me to hear you reading, you could record a short video of yourself reading and share it with me on Hwb. I can then post it on the class page for others to see.

Topic: Creating a theme park advert


Your task is to write and create a short advert to convince viewers to visit your theme park.

Send me a video or audio recording of your advert (around 25-30 seconds long) and I will create the overlay.


Check the table below to make sure you include the persuasive features before recording your audio for the advert.


When writing the advert: When recording the advert audio:

Use features:

  • Rhetorical questions (e.g. Surely you don't want to miss out?)
  • Imperative verbs (e.g. Go there, Take a break)
  • 3-point list (e.g. It's fun, amazing and exciting)
  • Repetition (e.g. You must come, You must have fun, You must be amazed)
  • Exaggeration (e.g. The Best place in the world!)
  • Emotive language (e.g. Parents! Think of your poor, helpless children - don't they deserve to visit the park?)
  • Speak clearly
  • Use expression - Practise before recording
  • Vary your voice - keep audience interested


I have provided examples of theme park advertisements in the YouTube videos below.
