A Message From Mr Blunt


Hello, Mr Blunt here.

Listen carefully, I will only say this once and this message will self destruct in 1 hour.

I mentioned in chapter 6 about Yassen Gregorovich and the fact we suspect him of killing Ian Rider. I have a problem though. I don’t know where he is or what he looks like so I want you to help me with the latter.

Your teachers have managed to unearth a picture of him from somewhere (don’t ask me where!). However, they are not able to send it to me as if it is posted on the internet it will be intercepted and he will disguise himself.  Your mission is to write me a character description of him so I can inform my agents about him and get them to keep an eye out.

Make sure they are good, your country is depending on you.

Over and out.

Mr Blunt

Boreatton Park

Hi Everyone

Last week was a great week for all those children who went to Boreatton Park and those children who stayed in school and completed some projects. It was really pleasing to have many positive comments from adults in school and at Boreatton Park about how well behaved you all were and how much enthusiasm you had.

We would like you to describe what your favourite part of last week was and why you enjoyed it so much. This will help you with some writing that you will do later this week.

Be very descriptive!!

I’m a Celebrity

Hi Year 6

Hope you are all well rested and ready to go.

As part of our I’m a Celebrity context we would like you all to reply with to the post with your favourite moment/challenge that you have seen on the show.

Make sure it is written clearly and in detail as we have never seen the show before so might not understand.

Private Peaceful

Hi Y6C!

I hope you are having a good break. I have posted your homework below. Read the extract from ‘Private Peaceful’ and then complete the activities afterwards. Remember a noun phrase is a group of words that describes an object/ place/ thing in more detail. When explaining why it is a good description of the trench, think about the feelings, smells and sights which Morpurgo describes.

I’d love to hear about what you are up to this week as well!

Thanks Y6C, see you soon.

Private Peaceful P126 A sense of place

‘Our greatest scourge is neither rats nor fleas but the unending drenching rain, which runs like a stream along the bottom of our trench, turning it into nothing but a mud-filled ditch, a stinking gooey mud that seems to want to hold us and then suck us down and drown us. I have not had dry feet since I got here. I go to sleep wet. I wake up wet, and the cold soaks through my sodden clothes and into my aching bones. Only sleep brings any relief, sleep and food. God, how I long for both.’

Find three noun phrases.
How does the mud make Tommo feel?
Why is this a good description of the trench?

Eden Camp


For this week’s homework we would like you to reflect on Friday’s visit to Eden Camp.

On Friday we had a fantastic time at Eden Camp and learnt a range of different knowledge about World War 2 as well as other wars in the last century. Could you please write a reply to this post to tell us what you thought was the most interesting part of the day?

We look forward to hearing you ideas-could you please make sure you have replied by Friday 16th October.

Hi Y6!

As we have been looking at factors in Maths, we thought you may be able to solve this maths problem involving factors. Have a go!

What number am I? I have a factor of 3, so I am not a prime number. The sum of my digits equals 6. Two of the digits are the same.

World War 2

Hi Year 6

We have looked at some of the famous (or infamous) people from World War 2. Could you please find some facts about one of the two leaders-Winston Churchill or Adolf Hitler-to help us with our biography writing over the next two weeks.
