Enjoying what you read - Year 6 - P7 - English - Home learning with BBC Bitesize - BBC Bitesize


This lesson includes:

  • one video explaining what authors do

  • one video of Paralympic Basketball player and sports presenter Ade Adepitan reading from Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce

  • three activities


Wednesday -  Activity 1


Watch the video of Paralympic Basketball player and sports presenter Ade Adepitan reading from Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce.


Complete the questions. 


Thursday - Activity 2


1. Think about a book that you've enjoyed recently. You might have read it yourself, or listened to someone else reading it. What did you like about that book?

  • Maybe you liked the characters. Did they feel real or make you laugh?
  • Perhaps the plot was exciting and had lots of twists and turns?
  • You might have enjoyed the way the author wrote the story? Did they use humour or interesting language?
  • Were you surprised by the ending? Did you learn something new?

2. Using your ideas, design a poster to encourage pupils in Year 5 to read this book too.

Your poster should include:

  • the title and author of the book
  • reasons why the book is a great read
  • your personal opinion
  • lots of words or phrases to describe how the book made you feel, like surprised and on the edge of my seat

Remember to make your poster look as attractive as possible using images and colours!



Friday - Activity 3

Thinking about the same book as in Activity 2, you're going to review that book and its author, just like Ade did in the video. Your aim is to make other people want to read that book too.

The challenge is that you only have 50 words to do it in!

In order to stay on track with the number of words you write, you can print out this grid to help you. Or, write the numbers 1 to 50 in the margin on a sheet of paper.

Top tip!

Every word counts so think carefully and summarise what you want to say

Welcome to Anglesey Primary School… Watch our children talking to pop star Jack Savoretti on the BBC .Information about Isolation if someone in the household has tested positive for Covid. The following information is taken directly from a Public Health webinar with Dr Justin Varney: Director of Public Health, Birmingham City Council. (06.01.22) If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is 5 years old or over, they should come into school. The child should do daily lateral flow tests. If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is under 5, then they should stay at home with the person who has tested positive until the isolation period is over.
