Year 6

               Welcome to Year 6

So here we are again - home learning!

We would like to firstly say how incredibly proud we were of you all during our last round of home learning. As we stated then, we would rather you did little and often and do what feels right for your family and your circumstances. We appreciate that not all of you have access to a device to view the learning or need to share a device with siblings. Therefore if you need a paper pack of the work please email the office.

We will be working on a week by week basis, which will mean that you will need to collect the packs weekly. We are going to try and minimise the amount you need to print off and suggest viewing tasks on screen and then recording in your yellow books (hopefully you still have these to continue in) or on paper. We will not expect your work to be sent to us and where possible we will provide answers. That is not to say should you wish to send us photos of your work or screenshots or of the 'fun'  extra things you get up to that we will not be happy to receive them. We will post as many of them as we can in our lockdown galleries, so that you can all stay connected and see what each other is up too. 

We are all at the end of an email should you need us for anything at all.

As always we welcome any feedback in relation to the learning we set - we do aim to make it as manageable for you as we can. 



We thank you once again for your continued support. 

Warmest regards

The Year 6 Team 



A PowerPoint of some quick 5 minute activities - 1 slide per day. You could use it as your start of the day activity. NB this is an updated resource for spring 2.

This week we continue our learning based on the book 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll and the ancient Egyptians. It is very important that you all try and complete the learning as we will be continuing it when we are back in school. We will not be revisiting the book or trying to play 'catch-up' - we will continue to move our learning forward. 

If you are in school for only part of the week this week, it is equally important that you do the work at home on the days you are not in school, so that you are in the correct place on the days you are in. All lessons will be progressive and lead on from one another. 


We look forward to receiving your work this week and hope you enjoy what we have planned for you. Wishing you all a wonderful last week of home learning. 

Take care and stay safe.

 Learning in Year 6

 As part of our recovery curriculum we will be planning our learning based around a book. From this book, we plan activities for other subjects based on our reading. For each book we will create a planning overview which can be found here. 

Please be aware that not all activities will be taught and not all classes will necessarily complete the same activities, as it is crucial that we cater for the needs of the individuals within our classes. All children will be experiencing different emotions (as we all are) during these difficult times, which can change from day to day, so our teaching is adapted accordingly.
