Year 6 Home Learning
Good Morning Year 6! We know it's a very unusual time at the moment, but please remember it won't last forever! We really hope that we are all back at school soon to finish Year 6 with some lovely things. In the meantime, keep checking this section of the website every week for work you can be doing at home. You can complete the work in your home learning books or alternatively in any work book you have it at home.
Parents, with the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during the school closures. We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home isn't going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support. The home learning will provide daily activities in English, Maths, Science and Topic (History, Geography, Art, D&T). The work can either be printed and completed or simply copied from the screen. We will also provide some online learning. We appreciate this is a difficult time for everyone and we are here to help in any way we can. Please follow both classes on twitter for updates and additional ideas. If you want to share photos of your child working - that would be lovely!
We have created a 'Year 6 Home Learning Grid' which outlines what we have recently been covering, as well as some useful websites and other topic based projects and activities.
Every morning at 9am, The Body Coach, Joe Wicks will be doing a PE workout on You Tube for half an hour - this will be a great way to get you going in the mornings https:/www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
Please remember, this is only a guide. We have tried to put plenty on, incase it is needed. We suggest one hour of maths and one hour of English in the morning. These are the ones which say day one, day two etc. We would also recommend reading using the CLPE resources. We have included ideas for topic and science which you can develop independently.
Your wellbeing is the most important thing during this difficult and unusual time!
•A worked-through reminder of the learning involved, followed by practice sheets
•An ‘If You’re Stuck’ sheet with an activity covering pre-requisite skills.
•Mastery questions so children can check that they’ve nailed it.
•Daily Times Table practice. This can be done on Times Tables Rock Stars https://play.ttrockstars.com/
Weekly White Rose Maths (the scheme we follow in school) which consists of a lesson a day
•A text for comprehension or writing stimulation. Questions and answers to go with this.
•Learning Reminders focussed on two or more SPaG topics
•Fun-Time Extras - things children will want to do!
Plus additional reading activities and comprehensions
English and Maths should each take approximately 1 hour each, but please do not spend longer on this unless you wish to do so.
Science and Topic
•Activities to support our learning in science about Evolution and Inheritance
•A range of history, geography, art and D&T activities around our topic of ‘Victorians: Innovators and Thinkers’
All work can be recorded in the Home School Learning Journals sent home on Thursday 18th March.
Most activities do not require any home printing and can be viewed directly from a screen as they are in PDF format or as a Word document. If you are having any trouble viewing these documents please download Adobe Acrobat for free from https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/
In addition to this, Holy Trinity School will be recoding live videos of our class story books being read by teachers and other fun activities. These will be available via Holy Trinity Primary School Facebook page.
