Year 6 Home Learning

During the temporary school closure, we will provide our Year 6 students with many tasks and activities that we hope will keep them engaged and interested in their learning. We hope that this will help to provide everyone a little bit of structure to their day but also give the flexibility required to learn however, and whenever, suits you and your child best. All activities at this level are intended to be as independent as possible!

Each week we will outline a schedule of activities below. These activities will be best accessed through the online learning platform Seesaw (app.seesaw.me) for which your child has been given login details. This is accessible through a browser (Chrome or Firefox work best) or via the Seesaw Class app on mobile devices. Full instructions for tasks (written, verbal or video) will be provided to help your child and they will then be able to submit their work via the site (in a variety of ways) for us to see what they’ve done and to give feedback as suitable.

At the bottom of this page, you will also find links to useful websites and resources that can be accessed at anytime for additional learning.

If you have any problems accessing Seesaw then please contact your child’s class teacher via the ClassDojo app and we will endeavour to share the learning in a different way. If you have no access to Class Dojo then please contact the School Office who will get a message to us.  

Regards, The Year 6 Team

Week 9: w/c Monday 8th June

Year 6 children are eligible to return to school from today, Monday 8th June.  For those not attending, we will continue to offer remote-learning to those who are remaining at home. This week’s home learning is as similar as possible to the learning which will be taking place in school.  For any parents looking for additional work for their children, there is a comprehensive list of website links which have a wide-range of learning activities underneath the week schedule on this page.

Mr. Pickering and Miss Lowes are now teaching children in-school so Mr. Bolland will be preparing and responding to the home learning tasks for all year 6 children.

All of the activities are accessible using Seesaw (please contact your child’s teacher via class dojo if your child is struggling to access Seesaw). There will be a daily Problem of the Day posted at 8:30am with the rest of the activities posted at 9:00am.
