Year 6 Handbook – Day 3

Now that you have written all of your sections for the handbook, it is time to put it together. Think carefully about how you are going to lay your page out – we have done lots of work on laying things out this year, so hopefully you will have some ideas.

Are you going to have text boxes? Doodles? Pictures? Flaps? Or perhaps you will want to do it in the shape of an actual hand! The choice is yours! Remember, you want the next generation of year 6s to choose your book to read over everyone else’s!


Below you will see an example of a page from the Bug Club Book, 101 things to do before secondary school which has an interesting page layout. We have allocated you the book on Bug Club in case you want to look at it.

Lyppard Grange Infographics

You know we love a good infographic in year 6, so here is the last one we will ever ask you to make!

Reading - Alice in Wonderland

We are setting you a different chapter of Alice in Wonderland to read or listen to each day. 

Below you will find a selection of activities which you could do alongside them.


  • Summarise the chapter in 50 – 100 words, by picking out only the key details
    • CHALLENGE: Get your summary down to just 10-20 words!


  • Write 5-10 comprehension questions about the chapter you have just read. Make sure you know the answers too! (use the question stems sheet to help you with this)
    • CHALLENGE: Include one question from each of the question stems


  • Choose one scene from the chapter you have read and draw it out, using information from the text to help you with this. Annotate the image showing the characters’ thoughts in one colour and things they say in another.
    • CHALLENGE: Storyboard the whole scene in no more than six images, which you must draw using information from the text. Underneath each picture, explain what is happening and what each character is thinking and why.


  • Choose a character who features in the chapter you have read and write down everything you know about them using the information from the text. Then see if you can make five inferences about them too, e.g. Alice is brave because she stands up for herself in the courtroom scene, even though she is at risk of getting her head chopped off.
    • CHALLENGE: As above, but compare two characters from the scene, saying how they are the same and different


If you've finished this week's maths or just want a bit of a break from planning holidays, here is a different task you could try all about dragons! If you read the instructions carefully, we are confident you will be able to work out the calculations.

Inspired by Nature

As the weather is getting nicer this week, we thought we would set you some outdoor tasks. As we are all currently isolating, we know you cannot leave your houses, but if you are lucky enough to have a garden, you could go in there, or just make do with looking out of the window. Nature can have really positive benefits on our health and mental well-being. Research has shown that even a brief nature fix - 10 minutes of wind brushing across our cheek, or the sun on our skin - can lower stress. On the document below you will find some activities which you could try to help you get at one with nature!
