Welcome to the Year 6 home learning page!

Overview of home learning for Year 6 (Monday 15th June to Friday 17th July)

Hello, Year 6!
Well done for all the of the hard work and fantastic effort you’ve been showing with your home learning. We’ve been really impressed by how quickly and how well you’ve got used to new ways of learning – and we want you to keep it up! Please do keep sending us emails with pictures of your fantastic efforts at home (whitehallyear6@bristol-schools.uk); it makes our day!

With some children now back in school, we want be making weekly calls or setting you specific learning activities each day. Instead, we’d like you to carry on making use of some of the great websites and online resources that we’ve been using already. You should try to complete one activity for English, one for reading and one for maths each day.

For English (writing and reading), we recommend you visit:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-6/subjects/english (This has units of English work that includes reading and writing activities; click on the ‘Topics’ drop-down menu and you can look for a unit that appeals to you.)

https://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/ (Some of these booklets we have used, but you could use ones from other year groups and just make sure you’re challenging yourself appropriately with the quality of your writing.)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zv48q6f (BBC Bitesize are sharing new lessons daily; you’ll just have to look around and make sure you find the right level of challenge for yourself.)

Make sure you are also still reading independently as often as possible – and email us to ask about accessing Get Epic! and First News if you still haven’t.

For maths, we recommend you follow White Rose Maths videos (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/) and then complete the linked activities on bitesize (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-and-p7-lessons).

In school, we are also going to be learning about Light in Science. You can find four very good lessons on Light produced by the Association for Science Education here: https://www.ase.org.uk/ase-coronavirus-hub-primary-remote-learning-resources#year6 (scroll down to the bottom).

We also want to celebrate your time at Whitehall with all of you this term. Therefore, we are currently busy creating leavers’ plans and we would like you all to contribute to these. More information about these activities will be posted on this web page (your Year 6 home learning page) in the coming weeks, so make sure you keep coming back to check.

With smiles,

Miss Manning and Mr Thurston

Secondary School Transition:

We know some of you might be starting to think about your secondary schools; all your secondary schools are looking forward to welcoming you in September. Some of them are providing some exciting transition activities you can get involved with on their websites. We have included the school name and a link to transition activities on their websites below. Do not worry if your secondary school is not in the list yet; they will be in touch before September.

Project work:

Remember you also have your red project book, which is for you to explore your own areas of interest. In class last week, we came up with lots of ideas. You can take the projects as far as you'd like to - really getting stuck into something you're interested in! However, you don't just have to choose and stick to one; you might really enjoy exploring an idea this week and choose to research/practise something else next week. Here are some of the ideas we came up with:

  • a science-based project (space, evolution and genetic inheritance, an important scientist like Katherine Johnson, the human body, biology experiments with flowers in your garden, a survey of the animals in your garden)
  • something related to one of our previous topics (coasts, extreme environments, World War 2)
  • something related to a topic you enjoyed in a previous year group - you could even work together with a sibling who has been learning about Ancient Egypt in Year 3 or pirates in Year 2 etc
  • an art-based project, filled with lots of lovely drawings, paintings, collages etc
  • a research project on a person/sports team/genre of book/TV programme that you are passionate about
  • free writing - you could start your own chapter book, poetry collection or graphic novel!
  • it could be cooking/baking that you want to explore (your project book could be where you record recipes and draw pictures/stick in photos of your delicious creations)
  • you could use it as a diary - along with pictures, 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' style
  • another brilliant idea that you have and that isn't already in this list! (You can explore any subject that interests you!)

Top tips:

  • each activity should take around 30 minutes (we'll tell you in the 'Home learning' document which explains the tasks)
  • complete the activities in your home learning books (green book for maths, reading and English; red book for your project work)
  • take your time with the activities and complete them to the best of your ability
  • if you need extra activities, look at your web site list and complete online activities.

Note for parents/carers regarding SATs:

As you may have heard, all school tests in May and June (including the end of Key Stage 2 SATs) have been cancelled this year; however, we remain committed to supporting our pupils with their learning – in both the core subjects of reading, writing, maths and grammar as well as the wider curriculum. This means the ‘SAT Buster’ revision guides will still form part of the learning being assigned. We want to continue building upon the amazing effort shown and progress made this year and help ensure your children keep their skills sharp, ready to confidently access the secondary school curriculum when they move on in September. We will give daily guidance for the books and pages to be used.
