National Academy - there are now some online lessons, quizzes and worksheets with explanations on video from teachers. You can find the Y6 lessons here or you can look at the daily timetable here to see what lessons are on today.

 

Parents...

We have purchased an English and a maths book for each of our Year 6 children. The books contain a variety of English and maths challenges, at Year 6 level, so that children can continue to complete learning activities whilst at home. Answers are provided.

 

Pupils...

While school is closed, please keep your brains active by completing some learning each day. We know you will need to make time for playing games and relaxing, (and that's important, too!) but keeping your brain active is also important. Keep flexing your brain muscles!

 

Why don't you...?

 

- Start the day with a PE workout with Joe Wicks? See the intro video here...

Starting Monday 23rd March I'm going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel.

With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive. Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.  

The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. 

You don't need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout. 

You can subscribe to my YouTube channel here.

 

- Log on to Times Tables Rock Stars and challenge someone to a 'Rockslam!'....maybe even one of your teachers!

 

- Continue with your 5-a-day maths challenges. Questions and answers are on these pages.

 

- Complete 20 minutes of your Lexia, if you have a password.

 

- Go on Purple Mash and complete one of the games, or use a set of the tools to create a game of your own.

 

- Spend a 15 minute session on My Maths and complete some work on an area that interests you.

 

- Look at the free resources page here... and the ones here that we have already paid for, for you.

 

- Complete the Home Learning Challenge (see below)...

Home Learning Challenge

 

 

 

Dear Year 6s,

 

We would like you to choose a topic that is of real interest to you, it might be a place you enjoy going to e.g. London, a sport, a type of animal, a particular book, a person you admire e.g. ‘my Nana’, ‘The Queen’  etc… Absolutely any topic you wish. Make it personal to you and your interests. Choose something you can do internet research on and use books you have at home.

 

Then we would like you to work on a personal project about that topic which covers different areas of our curriculum.

 

Start by thinking about what you know about your topic and make a mind map of all the knowledge you currently have.

 

Next try to think if you can do these challenges:

  1. Can you find out about a famous person in history or now who is linked to your topic? (History)
  2. Can you find out about a famous event linked to your topic? (History)
  3. Can you draw a map to show how your chosen topic is linked to different countries or places? (Geography)
  4. Can you create a picture about your topic? (Art)
  5. Can you make a model using junk linked you your topic? (Technology)
  6. Can you make a fact sheet about your topic? English
  7. Can you write a story which is inspired by your topic? (English)
  8. Can you use all of your work to prepare a talk about your topic and could you make a Powerpoint?

 

To do all of these you will have to read about your topic on the internet and in books and make notes.

 

You can present your ideas however you want! Be creative, make it look attractive and show pride in your work!

 

We will make a display of them back at school and share them with everyone else.

 

When you have finished please repeat your mind map of knowledge and show yourself how much you have learned.

 

Good Luck

Enjoy yourself!

A Special Assembly

Please join us for an assembly with Ant & Dec! The assembly will help children to understand the huge changes in their lives during the coronavirus pandemic and how important it is to speak about our feelings and thoughts - two things we can all safely share together at this time. Please click on the link to the NSPCC website, which is where you will be able to follow the link and watch the assembly

One of our Y6 pupils has been busy at home - learning new sewing and design techniques... she is very proud of the things she has made. Well done from us - they look superb!
