Welcome to Year 6

Redwood Class

Miss Beighton and Mrs Williamson

Stay safe during school closure!


I hope that everyone is staying safe and keeping well during the school closures.

Before Easter everyone in Redwood Class took home a pack of work for home learning including a list of websites with home learning suggestions. I hope that you have managed to complete most of this work by this stage and I thank everyone for all their hard work this year so far!

Unfortunately, as the SATs are no longer going ahead I would like you to focus primarily on topic and science work during the remaining school closure. I have attached below a science project on animal classification - however still spend some time on revising and recapping English and maths (aim to complete some work every day as you would in school in order to keep on top of it). 

I have attached some updated work to complete for maths, grammar, science and topic see the links below - for maths in addition to the links use mathletics to work through ratio and proportion, shape, fractions and angles. 

I will be updating the website next week with English work - however in the meantime either write a book report or a short story using character and setting description. You can email me these into me when completed for me to see alongside your science project work.

If you need any support with home learning or would like to share your home learning, you can email me. Importantly, remember to play, have fun, make memories and keep safe!
