Home Learning Ideas March 2020


Please click on the following internal link 'Home Learning Ideas March 2020', or click here


You will find numerous websites that will support you all, as you continue to complete your 'distance learning'.  There are many resources that are being made available, many of them for free, from various sources.  There is a lot on there, so spend some time going through it and finding things that may be of use.

Happy Easter Holidays! smiley


Just a reminder that after the holidays we will be reading and setting work based on  'Tom's Midnight Garden'. If you would prefer to buy a copy rather than find one online, here is a link to it on Amazon: 


(If you are unable to buy a copy or find one online- there is a YouTube audio version of the story available)


Thank you for your support with this,

Easter Egg Competition 2020



Dear Year 6,


We hope you & your family are all well.

It is very strange not to be in school and we miss you all & hope we are all back in school soon. Meanwhile, we hope you are enjoying your time with your family & the lovely weather smiley



Last week, you were all given packs containing the 2019 test papers- try to complete as soon as possible. The mark schemes will be available next week for self -marking. (Remember you can access the packs further down on this page if you need them). 


Easter Hols

The 10 4 10 (10 minutes of Maths per day) is designed for the Easter break as is the History presentation preparation.


Going forward:

We will set 3 pieces of English & Maths each week plus some topic- based activities. Work through these at your own pace, don't worry if you don't get something done each day. Remember, there are lots of other ways to learn at home too- baking, gardening, reading and talking to family members. 


No extra work will be set for the Easter break although please check for Easter Activities smiley


In the summer term, we will be studying Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce. All children will need a copy of this text. Work will be set each week involving reading certain chapters & follow up activities. This will begin on Monday 20th April which will hopefully allow time for books to be purchased or downloaded. Currently, it is possible to source texts freely online. There is also an audio version on Youtube if it is not possible to access the book. 


Maths each week will consist of :

· a mental arithmetic test – calculations

· word problems – rehearse & apply skills

· a puzzle/ problem

Have a go …let’s keep the skills sharp. The puzzle is just for fun!


Further Suggestions: allows children to enjoy audiobooks for free while school are closed.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland narrated by Scarlett Johansson is well worth listening to as are many others.


Remember if you would like to write to us to share your news or send us anything you have written you can use the Year 6 email account. (You can access this further down the page).


Keep smiling & keep safe x

Remote Home Learning


Please use the home learning pack that was sent home last week to begin with.


From next week, the Year 6 staff will be uploading work for all children on this class page. We will set  English and Maths along with some topic work. The few children who are still in school will be working on the same tasks.

If you want any further ideas for activities/tasks, please look at the Remote Learning page on this website for further ideas.


Other suggestions:
