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.
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.
I have chosen two tasks for you to recap previous learning and hopefully they won't take you too long to complete. They will be available from Monday 6th April until Sunday 12th April.
Make sure you select the 'Lesson' first, this will help you understand the topic, before completing the 'Online Homework' task.

Don't forget there is also a selection of Maths websites on the Year 6 class page - click here to view.
Recount is our text type for this term (if you can remember!). Write a recount about anything that has happened to you, either recently or something from further in the past, e.g. a favourite holiday, a special celebration, a memorable event.
There is a PowerPoint at the bottom of this page that may help you plan and organise your recount.
Remember to use the Drafting and Editing process that we use in school, it will be easier for you if you are typing on the computer .

I have given each of you two books from the list below. Once you have read your books carefully, complete the Higher Order Thinking Skills task and also the Reading Test Questions.
Book 1: Crow and the Little Bird
Book 2: The Brothers Who Met Poverty
Book 3: The Days of the Blackbird
Book 4: How Arthur Became King (No Reading Test Questions for this book)
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.
Q. How do plants produce oxygen and how does this affect the environment?
Q. What might the world look like without plants?
These are two of the questions that we asked at the start of the topic. Write a few paragraphs to answer each question. Remember to explain clearly using the correct scientific language.
Here are a few websites to help you get started on your research, there is also a video at the bottom of the page. Don't forget to make use of the Encyclopaedia Britannica on Hwb.
Click here for your spelling words.
Your spelling words are available for you to learn - a family member could test you on Friday.
You could also complete the activities from Friday's Spelling lesson - sentences, definitions and 'words within words'. Don't forget to share your work with me.
