Welcome to the Year 6 Home Learning page. This is the page for all of your home-learning information while the school is closed. We will be posting here regularly, updating things as we move along. We hope that we will be back in school as soon as it is safe, but in the meantime, here are some resources for you to continue learning at home.
We have sent every child home with a pack of resources and books so that studying can continue while we are not in school. These packs include 3 Reading comprehension books, 1 Grammar book, 1 Punctuation book, 1 Spelling book, 1 Power Maths book and 1 Raising the Standard Maths book. We have also included a few extra Reading comprehensions, some ideas for Creative Writing, a Maths revision pack and an Arithmetic test. We expect all children to be completing some of this work daily.
We continue to expect all children to be accessing the online learning that we use throughout the year: TimesTables Rockstars and Accelerated Reader. Links to both of these can be found in the folder on the right. It is really important that all children are accessing TimesTables Rockstars for ten minutes every day. Reading is really important too - at least ten minutes a day, followed by answering the comprehension questions on Accelerated Reader. If you run out of reading books at home, log on to Bug Club for some on-screen reading. Passwords for all of these were sent out before we finished. If you have a problem logging in, email Mr McAllan - email@example.com - and he will try to help.
Children can also complete a project on ‘Plastics in our oceans’. They can research the issues with plastics, how they are impacting on our oceans and what can be done to help resolve these problems. How this is presented is up to you. Another fun thing to do together might be creating Origami of the world’s endangered animals as shown on the WWF website: https://www.worldwildlife.org/pages/origami-patterns
If you've completed some work that you're proud of, or maybe created something extra to the homework set, why not let us know? Send us a photo - we'll be monitoring the class email addresses while we're away and will post photos you send in on the gallery tab on the right. Please also remember to keep active while we are not in school!
Remember - the class email addresses are only for sending work in - your teachers will not respond to emails.
