Comprehension tasks for the half term or after
(No homework is set for half term, but these are here in case you would like to keep your comprehension skills going)
Home Learning During School Closure
Expected weekly learning for Year 6 will consist of:
Monday assembly - to watch on Oak National Academy, daily Reading, 5 Maths lessons, 5 English lessons and 1/2 theme tasks depending on the complexity of the tasks.
This is the suggested expectation but we do understand that this may not fit in with the circumstances of all families so please do not worry. As long as children are taking part in small but regular learning experiences this will support a smooth transition back into school.
Feel free to visit and use other optional learning resources available for Year 6 further down this page or on the Weekly Learning Project document which is below near Monday's task.
Monday 15th June 2020 onward
From today we will be using ClassDojo.
Please visit ClassDojo and log in to access this weeks learning.
Please remember to upload your work onto ClassDojo from now on, even if you have been emailing your work, you all now need to switch to ClassDojo. This should include your Maths, English and Theme tasks.
Remember Year 6 teachers and Mrs Davidson are the only people who can see your posts.
If you would like an alternative year group please visit the year group of your choice and complete 'Week 4’ unit. You can navigate to these by choosing the subjects button at the top, then choose the year group of your choice, then choose the subject.
Then you can simply choose the lesson you want to complete.
