Year 6 Home Learning

Each day I will be updating this page with activities and work that your child can  complete from home.  A pack of resources has been sent home so that your child has the resources to complete the work.  Children have also been given an email address so that they can contact a member of staff if they are struggling with any work provided.  

Please check in each day as answers to previous work will be uploaded and new work will be provided on a daily basis.

Don't worry if you are struggling to keep up - just do what you can, and please make sure that you plan in time to rest, relax and socialise online with friends.  Enjoy this new way of learning and remember, we are here if you have any worries.

Mrs Ingham, Miss Gillies, Miss Coggan

 

Please note, if your child works with Miss Savillie for Literacy, your work will be on Miss Saville's 'Year 6 Group' on the Home Learning page.  However, please check into this page from time-to-time for other activities that you will be able to access for theme work.

If your child works in the Nurture Group, please go to the Nurture Group on the Home Learning page.

If your child is in Miss Green's group for maths, they will have been issued a learning pack to start and they have their own page called Miss Green's Maths Group in the Home Learning box.

EASTER ACTIVITIES

 

Here are lots of activities that you can be doing during your Easter break.   Read through them, and pick out which ones you think you might enjoy.  Encourage your brothers and sisters to get involved and remember to send me photographs of what you've been doing.

These activities can be completed as part of your learning log work.  Please photograph any completed pages - I would love to see them.  Below is an example of different ways you might like to present your work.  Have a great Easter and remember I am here if you need to contact me at any time.

Why not brighten up the day by making a rainbow to display in your window.  Children all around the country are doing this to spread hope and make someone smile.

 

Lesson 4 each day is to spread a little love.  Remember to try and do this each day.  You could do something nice for someone: send them a letter, send a message, say a prayer for someone or complete part of our Lent challenge.  It is the little things that mean the most!

Thursday

Good morning Year 6 - well done for all your hard work again this week.  Lots of you are still completing the work on a daily basis, and this will really help you when you start high school in September.  You've only 2 days to go up until the Easter holidays where I will be setting an Easter Challenge for you all.  If you have any ideas of a competition or activities that you would like to do, then please let me know.  I would also love to see your diary writing from this week, so please send me them via email.  

You may have heard about the new Nightingale Hospital in London, that has been built over the last week, and they are asking for bright pictures to hang on the walls to brighten up the hospital.  Please could you send any pictures to me and I will pass them on to the hospital.  Pictures need to be A4 size as they will be laminated, so if you get a minute, it would be great if you could make one for me to send to them.

 

I found this challenge online yesterday and saw lots of adults struggling to solve it; however, I know that most of you will be able to solve the problem.  Look really carefully as it isn't quite as straightforward as it first looks, and email me when you think you have worked out the answer.  Happy problem solving!

Writing for the week

Click on each of the images below to find out what this week's writing task is.  Below are the features of diary writing, ideas for each day's diar entry, an example of a diary and some descriptive phrases that you could include in your writing.  

Remember, when writing a diary you need to include lots of emotion and thoughts.  Think about the purpose of diary writing - to offload your feelings and make sure that you 'show - don't tell' when describing events.

It would great to see some of your writing, so please photograph it or send me it via email.
