Year 6 Home Learning

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.

Stay in touch with each other, ask questions and share learning through these Year 6 blogs we have set up on Purple Mash .

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 research activities, then these could be completed using 2write on Purple Mash and saved for us to see. This also allows us to comment on them.
