Welcome to the Home Learning Area for Year 6. Below is a list of activities for your children to complete throughout the week, at their own leisure.
The Home Learning Area will be updated for the start of every Monday and feedback will be provided on the tasks completed by the children.
Feel free to send any pictures or videos of the work and I will display them below.
Thank you very much for your co-operation during this time.
In the top left-hand corner select 'Curriculum for Wales'. Then, from the 'Library', choose 'Using Geometry Skills'. The select 'Movement'. I would like you to try, 'Y5 - Lines of symmetry' to recap previous work. Make sure you select the 'Lesson' first, this will help you understand the topic, before completing the 'Online Homework' task.
Once you have completed the first lesson, then try, 'Y6 - Rotation symmetry'. Make sure you select the 'Lesson' first, this will help you understand the topic, before completing the 'Online Homework' task.
Remember - You can retry the questions as many times as you want to try and improve your score. This is important as it will tell me if you have understood the task.
Don't forget there is also a selection of Maths websites on the Year 6 class page - click here to view.
Think about your learning on plants so far and write a plant based poem - you could focus on the appearance, description, colours, size, the life cycle, functions, etc. Don't forget to share your work with me, or even better, record yourself reading the poem and I can post it on the class page for others to see.
There are three books for you to choose from, you only have to choose two. Once you have read them carefully, complete the Higher Order Thinking Skills task and also the Reading Test Questions.
Book 1: The Magic Porridge Pot
Book 2: Dick Whittington and his Cat
Book 3: The Princess of Riddles
If you would like me to hear you reading, you could record a short video of yourself reading and share it with me on Hwb. I can then post it on the class page for others to see.
