Can't wait to see you all on Wednesday
Week beginning 6th July
Oak National Academy- Week 10
Home Learning Week Beginning 22nd June
I am so glad to be welcoming some of you back to school this week! We will be working on similar objectives in school but maybe not in the same order. Children who are in school do not need to complete this additional learning at home. At home, you can still follow the Oak Academy learning with the additional White Rose Maths and additional comprehensions. The Oak Academy has all topic learning on too!
Home Learning Week beginning 15th June 2020
Hi everyone, I hope you are all okay. Thank you for continually sending me home learning and letting me know what you are up to! I love receiving emails from you. We will be informing you about the arrangements for Y6 coming back to school by the end of this week. Please see below for this week’s home learning tasks.
As of this week, we will be moving to the Oak National Academy for online learning. (https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year/year-6/#). This is a government approved website that includes face to face, interactive teaching videos and has sequenced the learning for children in English, Maths and topic areas. When on the website, children can click on their ‘schedule’ which shows them their lessons for that day. You will be able to find History, PHSE and other topics to complete aswell as Maths and English.
Please note: Each lesson has an introductory quiz to complete – click next – watch the video – click next – worksheet/ Independent task (work through the slides ) – click next – final quiz.
There are also opportunities for assemblies and worships where the children can hear from guest speakers. We will also provide additional comprehensions and White Rose Maths resources for additional challenge if you wish to use them.
Please remember, if you need anything at all, you can contact me on the class email email@example.com. I hope you all have a lovely week!
Maths-Week Beginning 8th June
This week's maths is from the White Rose website. There is an explanatory video for each lesson on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ and a corresponding worksheet for each day attached below. If you need any support with your child's learning, please contact us using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep up your hard work.
We are also trialling the use of Oak Academy English Lessons. It is up to you which you access for this week. These lessons are good as they have a teacher video to accompany them. They do not link to the 5 English lessons above and are something different but they are suitable for Y6. This week children are writing a newspaper report. They are sequenced so children will need to complete them in the order below.
Week Beginning 1st June
Hi everyone. I hope you have a restful and enjoyable break. As these uncertain times continue, we will carry on providing home learning activities on the website for those children who are not in school. Hopefully, one day soon, we will see all the children in school but in the meantime we are thankful and appreciate all the efforts of parents and carers to educate their children at home. We fully understand that working with your children while, in many cases, trying to work yourselves is difficult. We are always here to help and can be contacted through the class email address email@example.com or by phone. So. keep up your efforts! We are really proud of the children and have really enjoyed seeing their work and hearing your comments about their achievements.
The maths learning this week is from the White Rose website. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ The accompanying worksheets are below with the answers.
Week Beginning 18th May
Please follow the link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ for the tutorial videos this week. The corresponding worksheets are listed below and there is a challenge attached for Friday should children need them. Please send any work or queries to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond as soon as I can. Keep up the hard work everyone. You're doing so well and we are missing you greatly!
Afternoon Learning-Week Beginning 18th May
The afternoon learning this week will be a project that children can work through gradually. They are tasked with designing a theme park, including the organisation of money and spacing attractions and other features out. They do not need to complete all of it: the idea is that children can be creative and be introduced to planning and organising money in a fun way that they can be in charge of. Hope you all enjoy!
Maths Home Learning
The maths learning will again be from the White Rose website. Please use the link - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/.

Hi Year 6! I hope you are all okay. Well done to everyone for their hard work recently! I've been so amazed by the work I have been receiving through the class email and the school blog.

Last week, children completed some home learning from the White Rose Maths Hub website. This week the sessions focus on scale factor. We have covered ratio just before the school closure and last week so this will be good for children to have a go at. The link is:
There is an instructional video and then a worksheet that focuses on the video.

This week in maths I am asking that children complete the activities on the website above. For each day, there is an introductory video and then a worksheet that accompanies the video (and answers). Children can work through this a day at a time.
I will also attach an end of week quiz/task that has different questions all focusing on the topic being taught.
Please continue to send emails to the class address with completed work and/or questions.

Please also sign up to 'Read Theory' (information below) if you haven't already.
