Dear All,
Due to the closure of the school, in addition to the tasks that appear on the Home learning section of the School website we have created some tasks for the children to complete. These will help to prepare for the summer-term topics.
Please see the list of tasks below:
  • A Power Project sheet based on our Summer 1 topic Ancient Greeks.
  • A times tables sheet (children are also encouraged to practise their Time Tables on Timetable Rockstars).
Other useful sites are:
The Science Topic for next half term is Evolution and Inheritance. The children can:
  • Watch planet earth and blue planet and discuss why animals work so well within their environment
  • Research Charles Darwin and his journey to the Galapagos islands
  • Create a creature that would be best suited to all environments (try to draw this!)
Children should be reading every day and please ensure:
-Reading taking account of the punctuation
-Reading fluently
-Reading with volume and expression
-Reading with appropriate pace
  • Write a book review on a book you have enjoyed.
  • Write a letter to your favourite author.
  • Keep a daily journal.
  • Continue working on your Power Project for this half term.
To support reading and writing the National Literacy trust have created a ‘Family Zone’ to offer online lessons and resources for reading and writing. You can find them here: https://literacytrust.org.uk/family-zone/9-12/
Twinkl are also offering a month’s free membership. Visit www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.
Please do not hesitate to message us in Year 6 if you have any queries or just need some advice over this challenging period.

Home Learning

Year 6 children will have the following tasks to complete each week:
* Times tables
* Reading daily. Please record when you have read with a child in their Reading Record.
In addition to this, the children will have a Power Project each half term which is based on our current theme. The children are encouraged to complete this on the computer and upload it to DB Primary. Books are available from class teachers if they are not able to complete it online.
