Whilst Year 6 are learning at home, all Home Learning can be accessed via the daily timetable sheets below. Each sheet contains a description of the activities along with links to the files needed for the lesson. There is also a link at the top of each sheet that opens a folder with all the files needed.
There is one file for all of Year 6, so some lessons may not be on the day your child would have it when in school.
If you have any problems accessing the timetables or downloading the linked files, please email your teacher:
To start our unit on Mental Health and Healthy Living the children studied the poem -IF by Rudyard Kipling. We explored its themes and how the poem was written by Kipling for his son to epitomize what it meant to be a man in the late Victorian era. The children thought about what it meant to be a good person in 2021 and wrote poems based upon their ideas and interests. Many thought provoking lines to read and ponder. Well done everyone.
