School Closure Homework

This week's activities 04/05/20:


Hello everyone! 


I can't believe it's May already! If there was normal school, we would be doing our SATs next week.  I've been getting lots of emails from your high schools which is really exciting.  I'm getting to tell them all of the amazing things you can do.


Most of you picked up the home learning packs this week.  I hope that you found them useful.  I'd love to see some of the work you complete so either submit it online or you can return your pack to school when you collect your new one.  


I will upload the work from the pack onto the school website too so if you don't collect your pack - don't worry.  It will be on here.


Missing you all.

Miss Quinn xx



I hope you are enjoying the Curse of Cogston House. Read up to page 32.  

Try the vocabulary work below.  I’ve included some of the tricky words from the text. 


If you don’t have a dictionary, try searching online for the meaning of the words and don’t forget to read the word in the sentences as most of the time you already know what it means!  Sometimes I cover up the tricky word with my finger and think about another word that would go there in the sentence.  That helps too!




To intrude (interrupt) someone or take over something



To persuade someone to do something or to really want to do something



To overbalance something so that it falls over



To enjoy something usually by doing it slowly



To approach someone and speak to them in an angry way



To imitate or copy someone



To appear calm and relaxed




In maths, we are going to look at missing angles in shapes.  If you didn’t manage to get online to do last week’s homework on angles on straight lines, you can still access it here:  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/


This week we are looking at angles in quadrilaterals (remember a quadrilateral is a 4 sided shape!).  We did this in class together so hopefully you remember some of it.


Follow this link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ and you will see video clips that explain each lesson activity in detail.  It’s under summer term week 2.  Don’t forget you can use your revision books to help you too.


I’ve also included some work on spotting angles.  Don’t worry if you find something difficult just do your best.




I felt inspired from the story and really wanted to do some creative writing about Cogston house.  I chose an image of a house that I think would look similar to Cogston house and thought it would be a great idea to imagine I went to visit it.

In your writing I want you to focus on describing the house and creating a really scary, tense atmosphere for your reader. 

To help you with your writing, complete this writing interview first.  Just like the ones we do in school!



What time of the day is it?




What is the weather like?




Why are you going to Cogston house?




Are you alone?




What is it like walking up to the house?  What can you see?




Are there any lights on inside the house?




How are you feeling?




What do you do once you get to the door?




Here are some ways you could start your writing…


  1. I knew I shouldn’t be out this late alone.
  2. It was my second visit to Cogston house this week.
  3. It was early morning and the fog was like a thick blanket in the forest.



Don’t forget about all of the things we have worked on this year that you could use in your writing.  I’ve made a little checklist below.


Simple, compound and complex sentences


Noun phrases


Adverbs or prepositions to start sentences


Punctuation – full stops, capital letters, commas and exclamation marks.


Cursive handwriting



Finding it tricky?


Practise your number bonds here:  





Can you solve this maths question? 




Can you use the picture (in the link below) to write some sentences?  Remember to concentrate on your full stops and capital letters.



Write sentences using your PAT or Toe by Toe words!  I have included some high frequency words to practise handwriting which can help with motor skills too!


 You can also practise your phonics online here:  https://www.phonicsbloom.com/
