Literacy: Report writing
Today I would like you to visit the Bitesize Year 6 learning page. It reminds you of the features of report writing that we have already thought about in school. There are some helpful videos to watch.I really want you to think about audience and purpose. This week I would like us to develop our formal tone: you need to ensure that you do not use contractions (don't, shouldn't etc) in your writing this week to be more formal. You will be organizing your writing carefully using devices like sub headings.
Watch the videos.
Then read the report about Jessica Ennis-Hill and evaluate the features of the report.
Today start to plan who you would like to write a report about. It could be anybody famous that you find interesting.
Tomorrow you will write the report:
Think of your favourite celebrity, musician, sportsperson or hero.
Write a formal report about them.
Remember to use these points:
- Research your topic first
- Brief introduction
- Formal language
- Complex sentences
- Facts only
- Clear layout
A copy of the model report is below.
Today please go to this web page below. It is the Maths Hub home learning page. Go to Summer 1 week 1 as we need to continue our learning about angles so that we have covered all aspects of the Year 6 curriculum.
You will know you are on the right page because it will look like this. watch the video to develop your learning.

Then open the activity document to practice finding opposite angles and then open the answers to check your understanding.
Evaluate this model report about Jessica Ennis Hill. Look for all the features of a report and the organisation used.

Topic - CEOP – Staying Safe Whilst On-line!
Home Activity 3
We are still all spending a lot more time than we would normally on a computer. I’m sure a lot of us are also keeping in touch with friends and family on computers or screens and no doubt, we’re playing a few more games on-line than we normally would, too.
This is all okay and it can be a lot of fun, but we need to remember how to keep ourselves and others safe whilst using the internet.
Today, just like last week, all year groups will be doing some activities about staying safe on-line. I’d like you to follow the link below. It will take you to the ‘Think You Know’ home learning activity pack 3.
Work your way through the page, try to have fun and pay attention to what it says – it makes a lot of sense!
Don’t forget you can share how you get on by emailing:
