PAL Facts and Challenge:

Challenge yourself by setting your stopwatch!


This week we are exploring a text called ‘The Giant’s Necklace’ by Michael Morpurgo. You may have read other books by this author, as he is very well known. The children who are in school will be looking at exactly the same text and will be exploring the text with the teacher as we would do for whole class reading. 

There are 5 lessons (one for each day of the week) for you to follow this week. If you follow this link, it will take you to the block of lessons for the week or access them daily on the links further below.

This is what the page looks like. Click on one of these each day of the week.

Below is a scanned in copy of the text, which is the same text Ms. Henman is using in each of the daily lesson videos. If you are unable to watch the videos or would like to have the text in addition to the videos to help you answer the questions, use this text below. 


Your Reading Comprehension questions to answer at the end of all the teaching. As we do in class, we answer questions once we have explored the text. If you then email in your answers we can mark it for you. 


This unit of work will be focusing on non-fiction writing. It will last for approximately three weeks with daily lessons that you will access here. Each daily lesson will be part of a sequence where you will learn skills that will help you write your own non-chronological report at the end of the unit.  These lessons will include grammar and spelling where necessary to help you. Each day click on the WALT to access your lesson. All the work will be on the videos, all you will need will be a pencil and your exercise book.

W.A.L.T -give reasons for classifying animals based on their similarities and differences.

We are going to start our new Science unit: Living Things and their Habitats.

Here are the key words we need to understand for this unit:

Activity 1:

Watch this short film clip “What is classification?” then answer the 5 questions in the quiz:

How did you do?


Do you know how many species of living things are on planet Earth? Have a guess!

(species=a class of plants or animals whose members have the same main characteristics).



Activity 2:

Taxonomists classify living things by comparing them. Let's look at an example of how this works.


Activity 3:

What are they? What are their characteristics? Watch this video of a teacher explaining the differences between mammals and birds from Oak Academy (16 minutes):

Activity 4:

Look at the pictures on this PDF.

lion    chameleon    tarantula    lobster    hissing cockroach   giraffe   poison dart frog   macaw    chimpanzee  octopus  giant snail  Komodo dragon  Galapagos penguin   spectacled bear    meerkat    emu

Choose some of the animals and sort them into 2 groups. This could be based on the number of legs or if they’re mammals. Then you can try to split each group into 2 more groups based on their characteristics.  Use the internet to research the animals so that you have the facts. If you have a printer, print off one of the worksheets below (once you’ve looked at them) and fill in the names.


Watch this short film clip for the answer once you’ve had a think:

How many African countries do you know? Write them down without looking them up (don’t worry too much about the spelling at the moment). How many did you get?

 Now check by looking at this website:

Here is a blank map of Africa. Use the internet to find out what countries 1-8 are.

Challenge: can you identify any more? If you have a printer, you could print it off and label the countries, as shown above. If not, write them down in your book.

Now we will learn more about the Equator and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Look through the PowerPoint to learn more:

Here are some questions for you to answer:

  1. What is the Equator?
  2. How long are day and nights if you live on the Equator?
  3. What do we call the part of Earth above the Equator? And below?
  4. How many countries are passed through by a) the Tropic of Cancer  b) the Tropic of Capricorn?
  5. Which is colder – the South Pole or the North Pole?

Now we will find out which African countries the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn cut through. Use the internet to research this and if you have printed off the map, add these lines in and label them. Don’t forget to use a ruler or a straight edge!  Either look for a map of Africa or put the question into the search engine.

If you don’t have a printer, write down the list of countries for each Tropic.

Challenge: Which African countries will have days and nights of the same length?

Extra Challenge:

When you have completed all of this, research the flag of one of the African countries. Draw it and colour it in if you can. Don’t forget to use a ruler/straight edge to draw it out. Take a photo and email it in to our Y6 email. Then you could find out some interesting facts about your chosen country and produce a fact file.

A message for Holly and Spruce children:

As your teachers, we need to make sure you are completing the work we are setting for you.  When we call you we will be checking that you have accessed the learning on this web page, that you understand what you need to do and that the work you are completing is taking you at  least 3 hours per day.

If you are having trouble with any of the above then you MUST let us know so we can help find a solution.  Year 6, your learning is very important to us and it should be to you too.

Do not be worried if you are having any problems, you can talk about it when we call you.

Most of all, we can't wait to all be back in school where we belong!
