YEAR 6

We have rearranged our class pages to hopefully make it easier for you to find things. Please find below activities that can be carried out at home.  We will be adding to this area as the need arises. There are documents and links to resources for you to look at. There is no expectation that all of the activities need to be completed. We are hoping that you can find something to do for Maths and English, for approximately 30 mins each, every day but we know that this may not always be possible. We have also added some topic area activities for you too.  

English Activities

 

Please follow the link below to access this website, which has some excellent resources for Year 6.

 

https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

 

Once on the website, please choose:

 

Year 6 ENGLISH - Download Pack for Week 1

Year 6 ENGLISH - Download Pack for Week 2. 

 So far, there are two weeks' worth of resources which we feel would be ideal for the children but just concentrate on week 1 for now.

Week 1 is based around Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Week 2 focuses on the Prisoner of Azkaban. 

 

It is not necessary for the children to have read the books prior to this work or have seen the films. Text extracts are included in the packs along with numerous reading and writing activities. Pupils and parents can pick and choose activities which are most suitable for the individual. You may wish to print off the sheets/activities or if not, write the answers in your home learning book. 

Reading and Spelling

 

Try to read as regularly as you can.

Choose 10 words from the spelling lists we gave you to practise/revise daily.  Ask a parent/sibling to test you at the end of the week. 

'5 a day' Maths Calculations

Are you getting your 5 a day?  Visit this website to keep your maths skills sharp!  Solve 5 different calculations each day.  You can challenge yourself with different levels of difficulty (bronze, silver, gold and platinum) and if you need help, there are online videos and tutorials to watch.

Topic Work Activities

Science - Research the structure of the human eye.  Draw and label a diagram and briefly describe the function of each part.

Find some fascinating facts about our eyes! 

'Home' work 

Ask somebody in your house to teach you how to use the washing machine.  During the next week, can you help out by loading it, turning it on and putting the washing out to dry once it's done.    

Take a look at the Video Resource Centre under the Children heading and watch the video of the children in one of their Music lessons.

EducationCity have generously provided all the children at Northwick Manor Primary School open access to their educational website during the school closure period.  Your child will be familiar with this website as it is used as a learning tool, predominately in KS1. Please note that a few activities may  not run without enabling the flash player on your device.
