Thursday 21st May – Year 6


Go to this website:

Look through the pictures and watch the video and choose your favourite landscape or setting.

Write a setting description about your landscape.

Thinks to include:

– adjectives

– expanded noun phrases

– figurative language (simile, metaphors etc)

– relative clauses



Think back to yesterday and how we find the area of a shape.

Remember we do length x width.

In rectangles we do length x width divided by 2.

What happens when we try to find the area of a compound shape (a shape made up of 2 regular shapes)?



For this, the first thing that we need to do, is split the shape so that we can see regular shapes. You might need to split the shape more than once.

Let’s look at the shape above.




Next step is to find the area of each part (you might have to find some missing lines).

Your final job is to simply add part A and part B together.

50 cm² + 21 cm² = 71 cm². Therefore the area of this compound shape is 71cm²

If you are still not sure, watch this video so you can see each step rather than just reading it.

Now have a go at finding the area of these compound shapes. It might help you if you draw them out. Remember they do not need to be to scale.

Compound shapes

Now check your answers.

Compound answers



To continue our work into religious pilgrimages, today we will look at some of the different pilgrim sites that Christians may visit and why they might go on a pilgrimage.

Why do you think that Christians go on pilgrimages?

One of the reasons is because in the Bible, Jesus goes on many pilgrimages.

Another reason is so that Christians are able to visit the places that the Bible talks about. Watch this video where two Christians talk about their pilgrimage and why they went on it:

Read through the PowerPoint to learn about the different places that Christians go on pilgrimage.


Now read this information about some other Christian pilgrimage sites.

Information Sheet

Create an information leaflet about Christian pilgrimage or about one of the Christian sites. Complete some research if you need more information.

    Miss kinsella i am very confused because the answers that are on the board are in cm2 but the compound shapes are metres?????/

      Ignore the unit of measure that might just be an error. I can’t open it at the moment but will check as soon as I can.

    English. Abandoned house.
    As Lacy walked up the hill, she looked around her and noticed something overgrown in the distance. It was a house. An abandoned house. It was filthy and slowly turning rotten. The house was as dirty as a rubbish bin that hadn’t of been emptied in ages. All she could smell was burning wood-which was unpleasant. Growing out of the chimney was moss and unknown and rare plant that she had never seen before (in her life). The moss on top of the damaged house made it look like hair that was frizzy and unclean. The things that made it even more dirty were things such as: stones falling onto the uncut grass; every single widow smashed in; leaves growing on every inch of the house and lots more!

    The sun glazed, unto the tall, fresh, cut grass. Sleeping, clouds opened like a grand gate; the shimmering sun strolled forward. A rusty car drove past a tribe of:
    short, tall, striped and modest animals. They ran into the Ombre blue, sky.The grass slowly danced in the powerful wind howling, like a helpless wolf.

    (this is paragraph one)

    Once upon a time there lived a man that had always wore black clothing…

    He froze ne day under his furious umbrella that kept getting hit by the hard see through rain
    then started a thunder storm as he was trying to walk back to his old aesthetic wooden shack.
    He always wanted to have a proper feast with his unknown family no one had ever see his family before he always wondered what his parents or even cares looked like..

    Up high on a mountain, just below the clouds, lies a beautiful place.
    It has patches of silly green grass growing through the cracks of the stone hard rocky floor and from the hills every direction you turn you can see everything. Sometimes at sunrise or sunset it feels as though you can touch the snowy white fluffy clouds.
    Not many people go there so it is peaceful and empty it doesn’t even look as though any animals live up there.
    It would be the perfect place to take the people you love
