Letter from Year 6 Staff w/c 18th May

Date: 18th May 2020 @ 11:43am

Hello Everyone,

We hope you are all continuing to be well and staying safe. Please remember that we can be contacted with any queries. If you are unsure of our email address, this can be found through the school website under the heading ‘pupils’, and just scroll down to staff contact.

Hopefully you have been able to use some of the lessons on Oak National Academy. If your child, wants to share any learning they have been doing or has any questions, then please email them to us as we would to see what they have been doing or help you with any queries.

The schedule for the next four weeks has been uploaded to the teacher’s area and the link is below:


NB. We are focussing on Week 4 (on the Oak Academy site, it says wb 11th May).


This week’s English lessons are all about Instructions.

As before each of the five English lessons begins and ends with a quiz. These are not essential to the lesson but will help you to see how much progress you are making and show you which areas you need to practice.

An online teacher will guide you through your main activity in a videoed lesson. This can be paused whilst you do your work. The teacher will tell you exactly what to do.

Lessons 1 & 2 Reading Focus – we will be retrieving facts and making inferences

Lesson 3 Identifying features of a set of instructions

Lesson 4 Varying sentence openers

Lesson 5 Writing your own instructions

The lessons include daily spelling practice and a test on Fridays. Remember that you can improve your accuracy using Spelling Shed!

Don’t forget to keep reading whilst you are at home. Read to yourself, to an adult, and share stories with brothers and sisters! Listen to stories on BBC teach or look at the links on the school website; they are all part of daily reading and we believe they should be aiming for 30 minutes or more in total every day.


This week’s maths lessons are focussing on shape, position and directions which the children have studied parts of in year 6 as well as in previous years.

Lesson 1 Learning how to describe coordinate positions on a grid

Lesson 2 Learning how to translate (move) simple shapes on a grid

Lesson 3 Learning how to move simple shapes on a grid

Lesson 4 and 5 How to solve practical coordinate problems

The Whiterose Maths Home Learning lessons ( https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ ) are also good quality. These worksheets should be sent to you via email this week and then attached to our school website on following weeks. They follow a similar format to Oak Academy as it has a video to watch and some questions to do. Follow Week 4 w/c 11th May.

Keep on using TT Rockstars to ensure you increase the speed in which you can multiply and divide. This will help in all areas of Maths.
