All year 6 home learning can now be found on Class Dojo - I have emailed out log in details to all parents - please email email@example.com if you have any problems.
Hello year 6,
I hope that you are well. As you know, times have been and continue to be uncertain and it was unfortunate that the normal school routine ended abruptly last week.
I just want to say how proud I am of your effort this year – you have worked incredibly hard and been a pleasure to teach throughout. The maturity shown last week was immense and you were exemplary in how well you dealt with it all. You have also worked incredibly hard in boosters, lessons and outside of school hours to improve your abilities in all subjects – this has not gone unnoticed.
As Ms Adcock expressed last week, the next few weeks and months are likely to feel strange initially and time should be taken (if needed) to get used to not being in school and having that normal routine. It is also important that you maintain the skills that you have worked on all year, so that you do not go backwards and more importantly, you are as prepared as you can be for possibly returning back to year 6 before July or year 7 in your new secondary schools.
The priorities for home learning are the following:
As I mentioned last week, please visit the school website (Children-Easter Work). The particular links that I would use are the following:
I recommend 40 - 60 minutes of Maths (including arithmetic to begin with then a particular area e.g. fraction word problems), 40 - 60 minutes of English (this could include grammar & spelling/reading comprehension/creative writing) and 20 - 30 mins of reading for pleasure.
Use these as well as the year 6 page, which has additional maths, grammar and reading resources. I have also added a topic-based research project that can be done should you wish.
I am also looking into organising year 6 Kahoots sessions where we can continue to have fun with arithmetic, grammar and general knowledge as a class.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch, if you have questions or are unsure about anything.
Keep safe and healthy,
