National Curriculum Assessments
The Government have cancelled the National Curriculum Assessments for 2020. For further information, please see the letter below.
Welcome to the Year Six class page. Work will be added on this page for you to do at home whilst the school is closed. Complete the work in the books that we have provided (in Year Six, this is the CGP Revision Books that you have been given).
Well done everyone for working hard last week, I'm very impressed with your attitude and engagement!! Keep it up!
I will continue to check the message board and approve messages as often as possible - I am in school this week looking after various children so I won't be near my laptop the whole time - please bear with me!
Maths Factor - free access
Fabulous Carol Vorderman, who is a TV presenter ("broadcaster"), has made access to her maths-learning website free for the time being. Carol read Mathematics at Cambridge University so she knows her stuff. Check it out folks! https://www.themathsfactor.com/
Sir Linkalot - spelling skills website now free
Check out https://www.sirlinkalot.org/ for free access to a spelling app! It will help you develop your spelling skills. You have to sign up to a mailing list so you'll need your own email address if you have one, if not ask an adult to use theirs.
In addition to BBC Bitesize, have a look at BBC Teach too - videos and activity suggestions!

There are videos to support Year Six learning available on the BBC Bitesize website. Videos on this site are being continually updated and the BBC have announced their intention to support children's education throughout the school closures.
You will be directed to read specific pages from Goodnight Mr Tom each week and activities will be set based on what we have read. Watch this space!
If you want to listen to an audiobook, there are a few available on the World Book Day website until 29th March. https://www.worldbookday.com/world-of-stories/
Continue to read any books that you have and like. All reading is excellent and you should aim to do as much of this each day as possible: you learn so much about the wider world from your reading; you know that I cannot speak highly enough of it!
Writing activities will be set based on Goodnight Mr Tom and also from pictures appearing on the Pobble365.com website. Practice makes perfect so do keep your writing skills sharp by writing as much as possible!
White Rose Maths, who provide the scheme we use in class, are providing work to continue your maths learning. This is the work we would have been doing in class were we still open. It is free-to-access online from home. Each lesson involves a video tutorial and some questions to practise the skills learnt. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
Continue revising in your CGP books the work we have done this year. The aspects that we we have learnt about this year so far are:
- Place Value
- Four Operations
- Fractions, Decimals, Percentages
- Geometry: area and volume
Use the log-in details that you have been given to access lessons on the Duolingo website. Remember to meet our target of 1000 XP by 20th April! Good luck!
Use the link to BBC Bitesize above to find videos on either our current topic (electricity) or our previous topics this year (light, classification, the circulatory system). Watch them and think about how you could respond - you could plan an experiment to test something; you could write a report; you could come up with some questions you would ask about the learning - the choice is yours!
Download these files for ideas of activites to complete based on our geography, history and art learning this year!
The Virtual Museum Tour document includes links to interactive tours of some of the world's most famous galleries where you can see beautiful and thought-provoking pieces of art. Find your favourite and think about how you can either recreate it or produce a piece of work in a similar style!
