Will you be one of this week's 'Netherseal Stars of the Week'?

Year 6, don't forget to take a look at the Year 6 Transition page.  You may want to complete some of these tasks instead or as well as the tasks below .  

Please let me know if there is anything you have particularly enjoyed doing or found useful on the transition page or if there is anything else that you would find useful for me to offer advice about on it.  Don't forget it is constantly being updated, so make sure you keep checking back.

Here is your home learning for this week:




Y5 – Using what you learned about frequency tables yesterday, choose your own data to collect. It could be for a sport you like, a game you design in the garden or even in your house or it could be about something you see out of your window such as vehicles or wildlife – the choice is yours! The more exciting/creative the better! Find a simple way of recording the information, then turn it into a tally and then a frequency table. You could look back at yesterday’s work to give you ideas/for help. You will need to make sure you use a ruler for all your tables and present your work neatly. Record your work in your maths book. Remember the short date and the title: Frequency Tables.

Make sure you send your work to to display on next week’s home learning page and so I can see what ideas you came up with.


Y6 – Continue and complete your maths work on fractions. Don’t forget there are also some related online quizzes to complete, if you have finished the uploaded questions.

Y5/6 Writing:

Continue and complete writing up your story from yesterday.  Then re-read your story.

Self-assess against your year group’s writing self-assessment criteria, which can be found on the Class 1 ‘Home Learning’ home page.

Which features have you included?

Which do you now need to add in/make sure you include next time?

Either print off and complete the success criteria and attach it to your piece of work, or record your self-assessment under your piece of writing, using stars for things you think you have done and an arrow for a wish for next time e.g.

*   Used all the basic punctuation from the list, plus hyphens

*   Used semi-colons, colons and dashes

*   Used modal verbs

*   Used ambitious vocabulary

*   Appropriate opening and closing

*   Used a wide range of sentence lengths and structures

*   Wrote appropriately for the given purpose

*   Handwriting is clear and joined

         Make sure I use examples from the spelling criteria

         Make sure I include passive voice

I would love to create an online collection of all your stories for your class mates to read, so please email them (if they are electronic) or take a photo and email them to

Y5/6 Topic:

Y5 – Read chapter 18 of Good Night Mr. Tom. We have met lots of different characters in this novel and a lot of them have changed over time. Your task today is called paper faces. Choose one or more of the main characters and for each character you choose, use a paper plate or make or draw a circle to represent the face of your character.

On one side of the plate/circle draw how you think your character would look the first time you meet them and on the other side, how they looked when you met them later in the novel. Add key words and quotations on either side of your plate/circle which support your thoughts.

e.g. If you choose Willie, you could draw how you think he looked in London on one side

How did he feel? What did he look like?

Think about his hair, face and appearance. Would he have been happy or sad?

On the other side draw how he would look in the countryside.

Then add quotes from the text to either side.


If you record your paper faces in your English book. Remember the long date and the title: Good Night Mr Tom – Paper Faces
