Welcome to the year 6 home learning page!

Here you will find some ideas (updated regularly) to keep learning both online and offline during these unprecedented times. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

6E class blog

We have also made a folder on Purple Mash for anyone to save any work in that they have chosen to complete. For example, If you choose to have a go at some of the Harry Potter activities (link at the bottom of the page) then these could be completed using 2write on Purple Mash and saved for us to see, this also allows us to comment on them.

Week 2 update (week beginning 30.3.20)

Mathletics - All children have activities set for them to complete this week. Well done to all of those children that have accessed Mathletics this week.

TTRS - All children have 5 soundchecks to complete. Once these are done children are free to explore the TTRS website. There are lots of fun ways to practise times tables (This will be very beneficial in preparation for high school).
