Week Beginning 11th January 2021

Some detailed research on the spitfire by OA.

Some of the work produced today. I'm really impressed with the emotion you have included in your writing. Well done Year 6!Next step as a year group is to use a dictionary to look up spellings - you can use an online dictionary if you don't have one at home.

Friday 15.1.21 - The Blitz

Mrs. Leverton here again with your last creative curriculum lesson of the week and I think one of the most interesting as it has a local connection. Today we will be looking at The Blitz. We will be finding out what The Blitz was and the devastating effect it had on cities including Sheffield. Read through the PowerPoint below which explain what The Blitz was and why it happened.

Below is a link to a propaganda film entitled ‘Britain Can Take It’ which was produced to show the effect of the Blitz in America. It shows the devastation caused to London but with the positive view that the people of London all came together in the face of adversity!

London Can Take It (1940)

However, it wasn’t only London that suffered during The Blitz. The then industrial city of Sheffield was hit by two major raids on the 12th and 15th of December 1940 (80 years ago – you might find mentions of this anniversary in recent newspapers). Sheffield was bombed as it was famous for the production of steel which was being used to produce armaments. The raids left 750 people dead. The industrial areas were only lightly damaged but the city centre was devastated with nearly 3,000 homes and shops destroyed.

Below is a word document with some photos of Sheffield following The Blitz. There is also a link to a You Tube video recently produced for the 80th anniversary on The Sheffield Blitz which explains about the effect of the air raids on Sheffield.

The Sheffield Blitz - 80 Year Anniversary Special

A look back at The Sheffield Blitz, which happened 80 years ago on 12/12/2020 & 15/12/2020


It is the 12th of December 1940. You have just been in the air raid on Sheffield. Write an eyewitness account of the experience.

The word document below contains the remember tos to guide you in what to include. I have also included a brainstorm plan so that you can plan out your ideas of what to include. Remember to include emotive language – I wonder if your account will make me cry?!

I’ve also included a link to a boy giving his account of an air raid on London and a word mat.


For those of you who want to know more, why don’t you see if you can find out about the areas close to you that were bombed in The Blitz? You could use the internet for research or maybe even phone an elderly relative or neighbour – I’m sure they would love to talk about it with you.

Please use the google forms below to share you work and let us know how you have got on with today’s task.

I'm so pleased to see someone apart from me (Mrs. Leverton) had fun making the model spitfire. I think yours looks better made than mine though KP!

Fabulous research from OS, AS, RW and FS on zeppelins and world war 2 aeroplanes. Great to see such detail about the spitfire RW and so neatly presented Well done Year 6!

More great work from Monday from OA. Thanks for sharing.

Battle of Britain lesson 2

We are going to continue our learning about The Battle of Britain today concentrating on the aeroplanes that were used by Britain.


 I have included a link below to a video I would like you to watch which shows you all the different types of planes that were used in battle. Each plane had its own features and positives and negatives about it. I have also included a number of links to different websites that give information about the aircraft used. For your first task, I would like you choose one plane and then carry out a bit of research about it. I would then like you to present the information you have found out in your chosen way. This might be as a voice recording, a video presentation or an information poster. You might include information about its features, its main use, the positive and negatives about it, a picture, how many were used or any other information you found interesting. I can’t wait to see what you find out!

8 Iconic Aircraft of the Battle of Britain, 1940

During the Battle of Britain, 1940 the skies above southern England became a battlefield. For three long months, the Luftwaffe and the RAF went toe to toe in...

Websites for research:


This one is a bit of fun! I’ve attached below a 3D model template that you can use to make of a model of a war plane. Try and colour it using the correct colours. I have also attached the instructions of how to put it together. Once you have made it, see if it travels well through the air. Can you make a more effective paper aeroplane that travels further? Maybe you could have a competition with someone at home as to who can make a paper aeroplane that travels the furthest.  If you don’t have a printer, make a paper aeroplane and try and decorate it like a spitfire!

Please share your responses on today’s tasks and upload any work so we can see how you have got on today using the google forms below.

Foreshortening is when something looks like it is coming towards you because of a change in size. 


For today's task, you will need:

  • large blank paper (A3 or put 2 A4s together!) 
  • pencil 
  • rubber
  • coloured pencils, crayons or felt tips
  • your shoes!

First, use a pencil! 

The steps are attached! 

Have fun!! I can't wait to see your art! 

Today's task:

Brilliant science work sent in by TS, EMF, DB and EW today!

...and some more work hot off the press from FS and EF. Great work and so well presented - keep up the fab work!

Work from Monday's tasks

It's been great to hear from some of you today and see the work you have produced. Thanks to JS, EL, OS and EW for the feedback. Generally you seem to have found task two a bit trickier than the first task. In order to explain your answer, pick out the key points from the information you read and use this to back up your answer. I hope this helps. Below are some great examples of work produced today.

TUESDAY 12th January 



Hello Year 6! Welcome to your Science lesson for today.  This term we will be looking at the organs and the systems in our body – focussing on the circulatory system (how oxygen travels around our body) and the digestive system (how food travels around our body).

We will start our unit by first re-capping which are the major organs in our body.



Can you write down as many organs of the body as you can remember?  What is their function (what does the organ do e.g. the heart pumps blood around the body).  Try to do this from memory – not the internet!


This video gives us a little more information about the major organs in the body – watch the video and think about what are the FUNCTIONS of each organ (what does the organ do).

Task 3

Use the information in the video to fill out the following table:



Other information


The brain tells the other parts of the body what to do

The brain is protected by the skull.





















If you would like to challenge yourself further, have a look at the following website.  There is some interesting information to read about organ donations, 2 videos to watch and an activity to do.

Think about the following questions:-

What is the difference between an organ and a system?

What is the function of the circulatory system?

What is the function of the digestive system?

Why are organ donations so important?

The Battle of Britain

We are continuing our work on World War 2 from the point we left our learning before Christmas. Today we will start to look at The Battle of Britain.

Firstly, read through the PowerPoint (link below) to find out all about The Battle of Britain.


Once you have read the information, I would like you to produce a timeline of the key events in The Battle of Britain. I have also included some additional information which includes details on the key dates. Remember to ensure your timeline is in chronological order, includes key dates and gives an explanation of what happened on the date. I know you are all familiar with how to set out a timeline but if you want to use a template to get you started I have put one on the sheet with remember tos.


Britain was only a few days away from defeat in August 1940 but then went on to win The Battle of Britain. Why did this happen? For task two, I would like you to read through the information presented to you in the PowerPoint. There is also some additional information included. Once you have read through the information, please write an answer to the question below explaining your answer fully and referencing the information you have been given.


If Germany had 824 fighter planes while Britain had only 600, and if Germany was training 800 new pilots a month and Britain only 200, why then did Germany lose the Battle of Britain?

Explain your answer fully.

We are looking forward to hearing how you got on with these tasks and seeing some of the work you have produced. Please use the google forms below to share this with us.
