Welcome to the Year 6 Home Learning page.
Please find below a link to a range of documents to support your child's home learning. There are tasks to support Reading, Writing, Maths as well as RE, Science, Topic and Art. We will be adding work on a weekly basis. We have tried to provide activities that do not need internet access for the whole session. If you need a paper copy please contact us via Class Dojo or contact the school office.
Please also consider time for the children to complete craft activities, physical exercise and activities to support their well-being.
Please share your work with us via Class Dojo or email it to the school office as we would love to see what you have produced.

Here are a few tips to support you with the home learning.
When will the work be online?
We will upload your child's work for the week every Monday. This way you will have suggestions for what to do for the week ahead. Week 2 starts on Monday 24th April 2020.
What learning should we do?
We will try to organise the work for you so that you can see suggestions of what can be done each day. There will be English, Maths and Reading for each week to cover three/four days. As well as this, we will also include a range of Science, Topic, RE and Art activities which could also be done in the afternoons. Fit these extra pieces of learning in when best suits you. These could be in and around the English and maths or during the afternoons. These do not have to be done every day. Balance your day as best as you can to suit your family at home.
Where to do the work?
When completing these, please complete them in a way that best suits your situation at home. If you are able to print them and work directly with the document that is fantastic. However, it is also okay to complete them electronically, perhaps on word and on notebooks etc... If there is work set that has a template then please do not feel it needs to be printed to complete it exactly how it is presented on the website. It is perfectly fine to complete the learning in any way which suits your family and resources at home.
Organising the day:
A few tips we have given parents about home learning is giving the day structure. It could be a weekly timetable or a daily one, but let your child know what’s happening each day. Even if you have a plan for the week, revisit the plan each morning and maybe after lunch. There is an example of a timetable on our website but please build your day around you and what suits your family.
How long should we work on our home learning?
Where possible it is about short bursts. Little and often so that they can have brain break in between learning. At school we may have a maths lesson for an hour for example but please don’t think you need to mirror this at home. Even in our longer lessons, we still break them up into shorter bursts of learning to break up the learning.
If you have any questions, please contact your teacher via the office email or by your Class Dojo page.
Thank you all for your support with continuing the children's learning at home.
