Welcome to a new week of learning Year 6!
We are so very proud of the responsibility you are showing with your home learning. Last week we received hundreds of photos of your great work. We saw amazing stories, incredible maths skills and some art and PE all being done in the safety of your homes. Keep it up for another week Year 6!

Don’t forget you can email us on email@example.com. We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password, need some help, want to show us your work or even just say hello! Please get your grown up’s permission before you email us. We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!
Presentation – Please remember to do your very best work. Handwriting and presentation are as important at home as they are in school. You can complete your work in a book or if you need lined or squared paper you can get it here.
Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities and can do independently. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child.
Ongoing Daily Activities
As well as the learning tasks we upload each day, there are a few ‘extras’ that you could have a go at, if you get time.
TTRockstars – Play 5 garage games + 5 studio games. Mrs Chapman will be online at 11am today in the Year 6 Arena area! Her TT Rockstar name is Zander Madden and will play games in the Wembley Stadium area.
Reading – Read for at least 20 minutes every day.
Weekly spellings – Practise these everyday in your spelling booklets – your new weekly sheet will be uploaded each Monday. For the main spellings, you’ll notice number 9 has now been given the prefix ‘dis’ as we already had honest on the list. So number 9 is now ‘dishonest’.

Daily physical activity of some sort. Joe’s daily work out is getting many of you moving into action ready for a day of learning.

For your maths learning today, as well as completing Monday’s success in seven, we also want you to open the home learning page for White Rose Maths and complete Lesson 1 of Week 1 all about ratio. Please watch the video first as this will allow you to complete the task successfully. You don’t need to print it out; you can just answer each question in your maths book. Once you’ve completed the work on the task sheet, open the answer sheet online and check your answers.
English and RE
Our RE concept for this half term is, ‘Salvation.’ In order to begin thinking about this and to further practise our story writing skills we will begin by looking at the Easter Story. Please read the beginning of this story up to and including the Last Supper before you carry out today’s writing tasks.
The Maya civilisation was hugely popular for many, many hundreds of years. No one really knows the exact reason for their decline. Watch the short clip from BBC Bitesize and write a summary (taking no more than 30 minutes of your time). There are lots mor BBC short videos about the Maya civilisation which are great so if you are bored, why not watch a few more?
