Home Learning Information

You will find daily tasks on here for Literacy and Maths. Additionally, we will also be uploading Curriculum, RE and Wellbeing activities for everyone to do at home. We will be sticking to our planned lessons as much as possible.


It is essential that all Year 6 pupils continue to complete tasks set daily, and record this work in the books provided by school. If pupils do not complete the work set, they are at risk of falling further behind.


We ask that pupils upload their daily work to their class dojo portfolios. To do this you will need to be connected to your child's account. Use the QR code underneath the home learning work to connect.

Once we return to school, we will be collecting all workbooks in.

Please click the image above to view our virtual curriculum information evening. It is around 25 minutes long. We hope that it is informative.

Watch the video below - a reading of the book 'Bloom' by Anne Booth.

You will need a double page. At the top of the left hand side page write 'Bloom' and draw a flower in full bloom. Around it write words, phrases and sentences that make you happy. On the right hand side, write 'Wilt' at the top and draw a wilting flower.  Around it write word, phrases or sentences that make you sad. These could be related to lockdown and coronavirus, but they don't have to be. You can also draw small symbols around each statement. See the example below.

European Day of Languages

To celebrate European Day of Languages on 26th September, we would like you to make a mindmap about the many languages spoken in Europe. There is a information powerpoint, fact sheets and you can also use the knowledge from the comprehensions this morning! You can choose what goes in the middle of the page, what pictures/symbols to draw and the information that goes in your mindmap. You can also decorate with words you may know (or find out!) from European languages. Use a double page spread for this piece of work and think about presentation. See the image below for an example.

In the box below there is also a 'homework activity booklet' which you may do if you as an extension activity - you will need to choose one of the languages spoken in Europe and find specific information/words.


¡Diviértete! (Enjoy!)

This term, we will be learning about war, focusing firstly on World War Two. We will be asking ourselves BIG QUESTIONS such as 'Is it right to fight?', 'What is a refugee?' and 'Is it possible to achieve world peace?'. To support us in our learning, we will be reading some fantastic books starting with 'Letters from the lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. Click the picture to find a masterclass led by Emma Carroll herself!

We will also be reading 'The boy at the back of the class' by Onjali Q Raúf, 'Rose Blanche' by Roberto Inncenti and Ian Mcwan, and the beautiful picture book 'The Arrival' by Shaun Tan which each prompt discussions about the effects of war and choices that we make.
