Below is a list of activities for you to complete. However, you do not need to complete every single activity. Also, you do not need to complete an activity in a set time frame. Do what works for you. If you have missed an activity, that is fine. Just start where you feel most comfortable! Do what makes you happy!
 
In addition to the work I set, the Y6 BBC Bitesize Learning Page has loads of brilliant resources you can use. Here is the link (below). Just click on the lessons you like the look of, they are all useful!

Please find below resources and links that you can use to support your child's learning at home. Your child should have already received a study pack which includes Maths, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) and Reading activities. We also expect pupils to be reading at home daily. 

We encourage pupils to use the 'little and often, bite size' approach to revision, focusing on one skill for about 30 minutes, then having a break and continuing with their activity or moving on to something else if they have finished.

Fancy something different...

This half term our new science topic is ‘the Vikings’. We will be learning lots of exciting facts about how the Vikings, including: where they came from; how they lived; and what they left behind! 

We would like you to research the Vikings, either focusing on one part of Viking life, such as their famous Longboats, or more broadly. 

You work can be presented in any way you like. Here are some examples:

  •         Drawings
  •         Posters
  •         Fact files
  •         Leaflets
  •         Diagrams
  •         Models

You can have help from people at home but it must be you that produces the work and you can not just copy from the internet. I'm looking forward to see what you come up with!
