If you are isolating at home:
Use the Oak National Academy link to choose some Maths Topics of your choice that you would like to work on.
Focus on areas that you know you need to practice ready for Year 7.
You could also spend some time using Times Table Rock Stars.
We would like you to continue working on your 'Britain since 1948' home project during this time. If you cannot find it, the instruction sheet is below:
If you have finished your project and would like to do a bit more work on the Windrush, there is a unit of lessons on the Oak National Academy.
There are lots lessons on here so you don't need to do all of them (for example you can skip the lessons focusing on spelling and grammar).
In school, we have been using Scratch to create games. Whilst you cannot access your current project from home, we have provided four different projects for you to have a go at from home - you only need to pick one, but can have a go at all of them if you like!
Click on the link below to access the Scratch website - this will work best on a laptop or PC and we have found that the program works best on a Google Chrome browser rather than Microsoft Edge. If using a tablet, there is a free app which can be downloaded (but make sure you speak to an adult before doing this).
There are two lessons here for you to have a go at linked to our Science unit on Evolution
Year 6 Home Learning
The Department for Education recommends that children in Year 6 should be completing at least 4 hours of remote learning a day. We have outlined below a suggested timetable to help you add some structure to your day. We understand that this may not work for everybody so do feel free to adapt in any way you need.
Breaks: We recommended that you step away from any devices when you have your breaks. Get some fresh air if you can. Do some colouring/complete a jigsaw – something that is separate from your work.
Creative tasks might include: colouring, doodling, drawing, creating a collage linked to your learning, or follow a Draw With Rob video. Exercise ideas might include: designing a HIIT workout for your family, following a Joe Wicks video or going for a walk/bike ride.
Year 6 Home Learning - week beginning 01/03/21
Remember you can email your class teacher with any questions you have about the Home Learning. This is also the email address to use when sending us photos or examples of your work.
Please note these email addresses are for when remote learning is in place and will not be monitored regularly. Please email any queries in normal time to the school office.
If you have finished listening to 'Floodland' by Marcus Sedgewick (https://marcussedgwick.com/floodland/) and fancy a new audio book to listen to, you can find a selection on the World Book Day website: https://www.worldbookday.com/world-of-stories/ - scroll down to where it says 'Fiction' and there are five books to choose from. Pick the one which appeals to you most and start listening! The following website also has lots of recommendations for brilliant children's books:
We would also like you to continue accessing Reading Eggs (https://sso.readingeggs.com/login) and working your way through the comprehension lessons available on there.

This week we should have been at Forest School on Thursday, so we wanted to give you some ideas for outdoor activities that could be completed in your garden, or even as a family whilst out on a walk. There are loads of great ideas on this website: http://treetoolsforschools.org.uk/categorymenu/?cat=activities including scavenger hunts and outdoor activities.

In our afternoon lessons this week we are making model Anderson Shelters. Have a look at the link below for ideas you could use to make your own. If you not have the right equipment at home, I have included a template for a model you could make instead.
