Today we are going to have another look at adverbials for cohesion within and between paragraphs.

Click here to look at the presentation and complete the tasks within it.

Complete the tasks on this sheet to identify adverbials and then to add them to a precis (summary) to improve it. Use the information in the presentation to help you.  The answers to the first page can be found here.


We are going to continue to follow the activities provided by White Rose. Remember, you need to watch the video on their website and download the resources from the links below. Today, you need to complete Summer Term Week 9 Lesson 3 (Area of a parallelogram).

Watch the video by clicking here to visit the Year 6 area of their website and then answer the questions by clicking here to download the worksheet. Don’t worry if you can’t print it, just write the answers in your home learning book. 

You can check your answers here. 

You can also have a look at the resources on the BBC Bitesize website here. They link with the White Rose activity each day. 


Today you are going to be creating a piece of art work in the style of Kehinde Wiley using (where possible) mixed media. Mixed media is a term used to describe artworks composed from a combination of different media or materials.

Gather together the materials you will need.

  • Paper for the portrait's 'canvas'
  • Pencil (for planning)
  • Drawing Tool of Choice: markers, pens, coloured pencils, crayons, all the above
  • Mixed Media Options: magazines to cut, tissue paper, stickers, photographs, rhinestones, leaves, flowers, pipe cleaners, pom poms, yarn, whatever you have at home, etc.
  • Necessary Application Tools for Mixed Media: scissors, glue, tape, etc.

Now, it's time to plan for your portrait by answering the following questions:

  • What colours do I want to represent me?
  • What position and facial expression do I want to represent me? What will I be wearing?
  • Optional: Model that position and facial expression in real life and take a photo. You can use that photo as a reference or you can print it to cut out and glue onto your portrait.
  • What objects/symbols best represent me? These symbols might represent a sport, a pet, a goal, a place, etc.

Step One

Take a look at your mixed media options and think about what you can use to represent the colours and symbols you chose. Pick/cut them out and arrange them on your paper. Plan out where the objects can go and where the image or drawing of you can go.

Step Two

On your sheet of paper, use your pencil to lightly sketch out your plan for your portrait. There is a guide on how to draw a face here if you need it. 

Step Three

Now you are ready to unleash the creative genius within. Colour, paint, draw, and glue all over your paper 'canvass' until you are happy with your portrait. Having a plan is a great help, but it is okay to change your mind as you go.

For another way of looking at this task, you could watch this video here. This also models the task and suggests you could use a famous person as inspiration. You can choose whichever you feel more confident with or combine the two.
