Welcome to the Year 6 home learning page!
Overview of our learning for this week (Monday 1st to Friday 5th June)
Hello wonderful Year 6s,
Welcome to Term 6! We hope you have all had a lovely half term holiday and are ready for your final term of learning at Whitehall. It was been great hearing about all the learning you did last term in our weekly phone calls and emails; we look forward to hearing from you again this term. We are also so proud of all the kind acts we have heard you have been doing in your homes and communities, including drawing rainbows for your windows, helping siblings, learning to cook meals for your families and so much more! Well done all of you.
This week in Maths you will revising and extending your learning on Fractions, Decimals and Percentages. Also, keep making use of the Times Tables Rock Stars and the MangaHigh websites to practise your mental maths skills.
In English this week you will be practising your descriptive writing skills, leading up to a setting description at the end of the week.
We also want to let you know about the all-new digit library Summer Reading Challenge that is launching this Friday (5th June) with a “Let’s Get Silly” event and runs until September! The “Let’s Get Silly” event is a digital celebration of funny books and laughter, with artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson and guest celebrities. You can use this link to access it: https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/ . This website is free to access, featuring games, quizzes and digital and downloadable activities. Miss Manning particularly enjoyed the ‘Reading Club’ part of the website where celebrities tell you about their favourite children’s books. We hope you enjoy exploring this.
This week Mr Thurston will be unavailable to make his weekly phone calls to South Africa class, as he will be in school. However, we will both be available via email, and we look forward to seeing the projects and pieces you have been working on at home and to answer any of your questions.

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.
- Bristol Brunel Academy: https://www.bba.bristol.sch.uk/Year 6 Transition
- The City Academy: http://tours.e4education.co.uk/cityacademybristol/
- Fairfield High School: http://fairfieldyear7transition.moonfruit.com/tour-the-school/4593955201
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!)
- 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.
