Our school works closely with the other schools around us to provide additional opportunities for our children. To find out about who we work with, and what we do click here...

             Year 6 Homework

                      and

          Remote Learning Page

 

             Here to help you keep learning away from school

 

Welcome to Year 6's Learning Page.  During this period of remote learning, daily work will be set on Seesaw. Seesaw is designed to function on any PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

 

Children can also use DB Primary via the Children's Pages on this website to find activities, post on the class forum and email other children or their teachers.

 

On this page we will give you some ideas of some extra activities you can do in and around the main work on your Seesaw page. These might be good if you have finished your work on Seesaw and want something else to do or of you want to have a break in between the activities your teacher has set. They are all based around not needing too much help from your parents or carers so you should be able to do them on your own!

 

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

Does your busy brain need a break for 5 minutes?? Why not try these activities.....

  • Using only 3 colours create a squiggly picture and colour it in.
  • Grab your favourite book and read or look at the pictures and tell the story in your head.
  • Draw a picture of you doing your favourite hobby, game or pastime.
  • Take a picture or draw the most important thing you have.
  • Find 3 yellow, 3 red and 3 blue items and make a pattern out of them.
  • Look for nature out of your window. What is the weather like today? What are the trees and plants doing? Can you see any birds or other animals passing by?
  • Ask someone in your house if you could do something to help? E.g  Make a bed, sort the washing or tidy a room in the house.
  • Listen to a piece of music and dance along, or close your eyes and relax as you listen.

Reading

Weekly Homework

 

You can read to yourself, read to a family member or listen to someone else read, but try to read every day.

 

A full digital reading library is available on Oxford Owls and you can access as many books as you like.  In October our digital subscription begins and your teacher will help you choose books at an appropriate level!

If you prefer traditional books you will be given a book each Monday, please return it on a Friday.

In class we are reading Arctic Adventure by Willard Price

 

If you are working at home we will try to get a copy of the book to you so you can complete the work we are covering in class, or we may email a particular paragraph or page.It's likely we will copy pages onto SeeSaw for you to read and work from.

 

Ask your parent to check their emails.

There will also be tasks on Seesaw, please check your app regularly.

 

Writing

Weekly Homework

Our Year 5/6 spellings this half term are: 

 

soldier         sincere    recommend    relevant     restaurant    yacht  

signature       immediately     sufficient      vehicle      twelfth     variety

vegetable       suggest      stomach

 

Our spelling rule for our homework is: not currently being updated whilst working at home

 

Your test won't have a list of words. Instead, we will pick random words that follow the rule we've learnt in class and at home. It's the rule we are learning to apply, not just a list of works.

 

 

This website has some fun games to play too- https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/7-11-years/writing

Why not try keeping a diary of your  day? You could add pictures, drawings and write down what you've been doing and feeling.
