Year 6 - Home Learning

We hope you find this page useful in supporting you and your child with their learning. Please view our Facebook and Twitter pages where we have already shared many websites, that are freely available, to engage children with a range of enjoyable activities linked to their learning.

This page will be updated every two weeks with ideas and activities which can be completed at home. There is no expectation that your child will complete all these activities. They are here as a guide to support you all.

Please feel free to contact me (Mrs Chidsey) through Class Dojo with any questions you may have or to share with me your learning and the activities you have completed. You can simply just message me to say hello.

But above all please stay safe and keep smiling (oh and maybe just a little Body Grooving too).

The direct link doesn't seem to be working so once you've opened the above, click on Literacy Shed Plus link on the right hand side, where it says 'download planning'. Click on free resources, KS2 activity packs, then Alchemist's Letter to download the pack. Sorry for the inconvenience, we are working to rectify this as soon as possible.

Science

Instead of setting a specific science activity at this moment in time, please have a look at the STEM learning website as there are lots of fantastic activities you could complete at home.

History

One idea is to keep a diary of your thoughts and activities during this period. You could add drawings, doodles and photographs. In years to come, you will then have your own ‘primary source’ of history to look back upon.

Art

Show off your artistic skills with the following mini-project on Kandinsky.
