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 (remember to check pupil Hwbmail).
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.
To keep our class connected and to see what we all have been doing during these unprecedented times, I would like you to send me either a picture or small video of something you have been up to. This could include a walk, exercise routines, painting, etc - anything you have been up to and want to share. I will then put all of these moments into a video montage to share with you at the end of each week.
These are the photos and videos I have received this week. Also, if you haven't seen the LPS Staff video then click here!
I have set you three out of the four tasks below. Complete them in the order they appear below. If you do not have time to complete them all, or you find them too challenging, then only complete what you can. They will be available from Monday 4th May until Sunday 10th May.
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.

Welcome to Theme Park Maths, an exciting task in which you will need to you plan, build and operate a theme park. Your decisions throughout the investigation will be crucial as to whether you make a profit or a loss.
A plot of land has become available and you have decided to build a brand-new theme park. You have managed to secure a £1,000,000 loan from the bank.
Tip: This task will take perseverance and concentration over the couple of weeks, so make sure you take a note of all your workings as you go along to make calculations easier for yourself.
