Year 6 Home Learning – week beginning 11th May :)

Hello Year 6!

We hope you have had a lovely long weekend and are ready for another week of home learning. As always, we’d love to hear more from you on the blog or by email. Remember when you comment on the blog, you can just make up an email address to be able to post a comment.

e.g or     or

Don’t feel you have to comment every day but perhaps at the end of the week you could post or email to say what you’ve completed. You could tell us what you enjoyed most (so we know to do more of this!) and what you found tricky (so we can help you improve!)

Here are the links to the 5 English and maths lessons for the week, as well as three wider curriculum activities for you to have a go at. It would be great if you could complete one English and maths a day – we know this isn’t possible for everyone – so aim for at least 3. You can choose when you would like to complete the wider curriculum activities – this week you have some art, computing and a science to explore.

We love reading your comments on the blog and receiving emails from you all, especially pictures of your incredible work; we endeavour to respond as promptly as we can. Please keep sending us comments and emails – it makes our day!

Our emails are:

We will continue to post chapters of our story for you to enjoy so keep an eye on the blog for those to appear. We are halfway through the story already so keep an eye out for the next chapter.

We are both missing you all dearly but so grateful that technology can bring us so much closer together.

Miss Lowe and Miss Spaven

    White Rose Maths worksheets no longer seem to be available

    • 11th May 2020 at 9:42 am

      If you are working ahead, yes the worksheets are no longer available however we are in the process of discussing purchasing the premium subscription as a school so that we can access these from the next couple of days. The videos have additional questions added to them though so these can still be used.
      The blog is currently working at summer term week 2 and these worksheets are still available as are any previous weeks if you haven’t yet completed these 🙂
      We will update you as soon as we know about the updated white rose subscription.
      Thank you

      Great Emmie! Well done 🙂 which part did you particularly enjoy? I think this is my favourite week with setting descriptions. They are my favourite type of genre to read or write!
      Thank you

    Hi, I have enjoyed doing the science as I love experimenting. I have also done the English work and now I am about to do the maths.

    • 12th May 2020 at 11:43 am

      That’s great to hear Poppy – thank you for letting us know. We can see if we can find some more experiments for future blogs.
      Well done for doing some English – I hope you find the maths okay!
      Miss Lowe 🙂

      Hi Hector,
      It is really up to you. There are 5 English a week and 5 maths so you could complete one of these a day or you could complete 3 out of the 5. Then there are 3 wider curriculum subjects so you could pick the days you’d like to complete these or you can just stick with English and maths and do something else creative in the afternoons.
      Hope this helps, do as much as you can but don’t make it stressful.
      Miss Spaven
