Date: 26th Jun 2020 @ 12:15pm

Hello Everyone,

We hope you are all continuing to be well and staying safe. We are looking forward to seeing those of you who are returning to school next week.

If you want to continue with regular reading and learning using BBC Bitesize lessons (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-and-p7-lessons/1) or previous lessons you didn’t get to yet on Oak Academy or White Rose, please remember that we can be contacted with any queries.  If you are having trouble with online activities and require any Learning Packs then please get in touch with us, either by calling school and requesting a learning pack or emailing us via the school website. 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.

It would be great to see some examples of your child’s learning or to hear of things your child has learned or enjoyed learning about via email.

Home Learning  wb 29th June 2020

NB. We are focussing on Week 9 on the Oak Academy site (wb 22nd June).


This week’s English lessons are all about explanations.

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.

Lesson 1 Reading Focus – answering summary questions.

Lesson 2 Reading Focus – answering summary questions.

Lesson 3 Read example text and identify key features of an explanation text

Lesson 4 Understand how to use punctuation for parenthesis.

Lesson 5 Write your own explanation text.

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 linear sequences, measurement (length, mass, volume, time) and area which the children have studied parts of in year 6.

Lesson 1 Understand percentages.

Lesson 2 Understand equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages.

Lesson 3 To find percentages of amounts.

Lesson 4 Interpret mean as an average.

Lesson 5 Interpret line graphs.

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