             Here to help you keep learning away from school

 

Welcome to Year 6's Learning Page. 

 

Here you'll find the key learning that is happening within class and what you can be doing at home if you find yourself or your bubble isolating for any period of time.

 

Work will be set from school on Seesaw, so that is the first port of call for any work. You'll find links to long term planning and resources on this page as well as topic information, general resources for Year 6 and ideas to keep pupils happy and healthy at home.

 

If you need any more support with your remote learning such as your log in details, please email your teacher at year6@stthomas.org.uk, or message us through your DB Primary Email. 

 

Thank you, Mrs Fullwood and Mr Boosey

Our Topic and other learning

TOPIC HOMEWORK

Our topic this half term is 'Mighty Mayans'.

 

During this fantastic topic, we will be learning all about this ancient civilisation. Who they were, where they lived, what they ate, how the became so well known and what lead to their downfall.

 

We'll discover facinating facts about the tropical jungles they lived in and learn about where they fit on a historical timeline.

 

 

 

Remote Learning

 

If you have to self isolate, as ever, we will try to put the lessons onto Seesaw so you can access them. Some topic lessons may need resources or access to websites making them harder to complete at home. If this is the case, continuing your learning using the homework ideas is a great alternative. Where possible, we will be able to gather resources for you to collect to be able to take part in the lessons at home.

 

HOMEWORK

Below is the latest homework chart. Once you have completed one of them, please take a picture or upload the items to Seesaw to share it. There will be an activity called WEEK 2 and 3 Year 6 Homework
