Year 6 Home Learning


Welcome to our Year 6 Home Learning page.  We would much rather be teaching you guys face to face but for now, it seems,this is our only option! :(




Autumn 1 Week 1 Home learning

Tuesday 8th September 2020

Today in class we are doing PHSCE activities so everyone has the chance to settle in and get to know each other after the lockdown. For you at home, we want you to have as similar day as possible. We know that you can’t speak to us directly yet, but we want you to have a think about and answer these questions to get your day started - they will help us get to know you a little better, even from home. Please feel free to send your responses to our email addresses - we’ll be able to have a look later.

  • What do you enjoy doing? Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of school?
  • Is there anything in particular you are looking forward to in Year 6?
  • Do you have any questions about what we do in Year 6?
  • Is there anything that you are worried about?

If you have any other thoughts that you would like to share with us, please do :)


When you have had a chance to answer the above questions, please spend some time on TTRockstars and Reading Eggs - you only need to spend about 45 minutes on each.


Wednesday 9th - Friday 11th September 2020

For the rest of the week we will give you some maths and English/Topic work to have a go at. We will aim to put everything that you will need underneath the correct section.



Some of these resources only go up to ‘Best’ because the rest of the resources are from textbooks.


Session 1 (two days):

Go through the PowerPoint and then have a go at the resources below. We will label them up so you can choose which one suits you the best. You can do them all if you like!




Session 2 (two days - this lesson will continue on Monday 14th):

Using what you learnt about in the previous session, have a go at the resources below. The resources are in the following order: Basic, Better, Best, BYM, OYM and AYM!


In class we will be beginning our topic based on the Transatlantic Slave Trade. There are a couple of things you can be doing at home to give you some ideas about what we will be covering:

  • Go through the PowerPoint below and then create a fact file about the Transatlantic Slave Trade using the information you have read about - you may want to do a little research yourself!
  • Research the famous abolitionist (someone who was trying to stop slavery) Harriet Tubman. It would be great if you could create a fact file or PowerPoint about her too!



In addition to the work set, we will also plan in opportunities for your child to access the following websites, all of which, your children have passwords for: 


Nessy: https://www.nessy.com/uk/   **If your child has access to Nessy- instructions have been put in their packs. 

Reading Eggs: https://readingeggs.co.uk/signup1/

TT Rockstars: https://ttrockstars.com/


Please feel free to contact us by email if you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning or even if you want to just give us an update on how they're doing- we'd love to hear how they're getting on, as they mean the world to us.

Our e-mail addresses are as follows:
