Hello Year 6! Hope you are all ok and are still finding plenty to do while you’re at home. I’ve had some more email updates from Sophie, Abi and Matilda and they really do make me smile! I am so pleased to see all the activities you are doing at home and to hear that you are well and happy. If you or your parents would like to, please ask them to send me an email with an update or some photos of you. It would be great to hear more from you all!

I am still keeping fingers crossed that we can get back to school before the end of the academic year and that you guys can all enjoy some of the end-of-year Year 6 treats you deserve!


Your tasks for today are as follows…


Maths: angles

Keep working on your times tables on either TTRS or hit the button (or both!) for about 10 minutes per day so that you can maintain your speed and accuracy with them.


To continue our work on angles, after your times tables, please complete the next angles lesson which I have linked below. Answers are also provided for you to self-mark once you have finished. If you need any guidance with this lesson, please follow the link below and watch the video that corresponds to today’s lesson (Summer Term week 1 lesson 4).

English: spellings and reading

Continue to work on your spellings as needed.


For your main English task today, just like last Friday, I would like you to spend a good portion of time reading a book, either a physical copy or one available to you on Epic! or Oxford Owl. Reading develops your ideas for writing stories, your vocabulary, your spelling and it is amazing for our minds at all times, especially when lots is going on in the news. We read a lot during the day when we are in school and I am so proud to have a class who loves reading like you all do! So, find a comfy spot somewhere (make sure you have sun cream on if you are in the sun today as it is meant to be very hot!), find your book, and lose yourself in it! Try to read for at least an hour today.


Don’t forget, if you have younger siblings, you could continue your reading buddy time with them whilst you can’t read with your usual Year 2 buddy. I’m sure it would be so helpful to your parents if you took the time to help a younger sibling with their reading and it will help you both too.


I’d love to see some photos tweeted of you reading or helping a younger sibling with their reading. Remember that we can only see tweets from accounts that aren’t protected, so make sure your parents are aware of this before tweeting us.




Well-being: write a poem

To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, have a go at writing a poem. You might want to write it based on the current situation, or about the weather, or the future and your transition to secondary school, or any other topic of your choice! When we had the poet Andy Tooze come in to visit us at school, you all really impressed me with the poems you wrote during our workshop. Have a go at creating another one. If you would like to, please email them to me as I'd love to see some of your work! 




Your topic tasks for this week…

Have you started working on any of the Easter chilli challenges that I posted on Monday yet? It's wonderful to see some of your work from those of you that have. I hope you enjoy completing these challenges and learning about this new topic. 





I'm sorry for the lateness of this post today - we have had trouble with our internet service at home this morning due to our house move. We are still between two properties at the moment and the internet has been cancelled earlier than we asked for so I did not have any access to internet this morning. Hope you will forgive me!
