Captain Tom: "We will get through this and come out of it stronger, more united and ready to face any challenge together."
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! 
Your Maths work can be found by accessing the White Rose Maths Hub. A PDF document explaining how this works is saved below. Here is the link:
I will try and upload all the work for a week or two in one go. If I need to upload anything additional,  I will start with the title '**Update' followed by the date so you can keep track of what has been uploaded when. Work is organised chronologically, with the latest work at the top and the oldest work at the bottom of the page. 
If you cannot download and print an activity, I would suggest writing out / drawing out your responses onto paper. Where there is a paired activity, I would suggest trying to do this with someone at home. Where this is not possible, you can complete this independently or move on to the next part of the lesson. 
In addition, if you would prefer a pack of the work from the website, these are available to collect from school. Please ask an adult to contact the school office and I can arrange for this to be printed off. On some occasions, this may take a few days to organise as not all members of staff are in school everyday.  
It would be brilliant to see any work you complete at home. You can take a picture or ask an adult to scan it (if available). They can then send it the school office via email on: office@blakehill.bradford.sch.uk
On some activities there are stars. 1 star is work that is more straightforward to complete whereas 3 stars is the more challenging work. You decide which one you want to do!
Also, sometimes the website can run very slowly as teachers upload work and more pupils log on from home. If this happens, please bear with us or perhaps try again later. 
Please remember to pace yourselves throughout the day / week and give yourself time to rest and relax. Some people have created a timetable, completing things like Maths and English in the morning and then doing Topic work or using things like RM Easimaths (see below) in the afternoon. In between, they are doing some form of daily exercise, alongside things that they enjoy such as reading a book; watching their favourite YouTube channel; or playing their favourite video game.
Here is a link to some boredom-busting activities that you can do from the comfort of your sofa:
This is just one suggestion but it might help as it is similar to the timetable we had on the board at school. It will help you know what you are doing and for how long. Also, just like when I revise or learn something new, use the 'little and often, bitesize' approach. This means doing a bit, then having a mini-break, then coming back and doing a bit more. Do what works for you and your family!
You have all made fantastic progress this year. Doing a bit of learning, as often as you can, keeps what you have learnt 'on the boil' ready for when you move up to secondary school!
Thank you and stay safe.

Here are your maths worksheets for the next two weeks. 
Week 9: Area and perimeter
Week 10: Ratio
1) Formal and informal language warm up PowerPoint. Remember: different text types require us to write in different ways. Some texts, like a letter to a bank, require formal language whereas if you are writing a diary entry, you can write informally. Your tasks are saved on the PowerPoint and below. 
2) Synonyms and Antonyms warm up PowerPoint. This PowerPoint explains the difference between the two. Your tasks are saved on the PowerPoint and below. 
3) Spellings: Here are your spellings for this week and the following week. 
4) I have also uploaded two SPaG SAT-style papers for you to practice your skills. Think of this as a worksheet so if there is anything you are not sure about, use your laptop or tablet to find the answer online. 
5) For additional English lessons, please access BBC Bitesize (links saved above).
6) For SPaG activities, don't forget SPaG.com!
1) Rosa Parks was an American activist in the civil rights movement best known for her pivotal role in the Montgomery bus boycott. The United States Congress has called her "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". Let's find out more about this amazing woman. Your task is then saved below.
2) Ruby Bridges was an American civil rights activist. She was the first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis on 14 November 1960. The PowerPoint below will explain more about this amazing woman. Your task is then use what you have learnt about these two woman to research more about the civil rights movement in America. Think about how you will present your information.

The Escape Room
Can you solve the puzzles to escape the room? 
1) This lesson explores making flowers and plants using paper, similar to when we make snowflakes as we approach Christmas. It would be brilliant to see your designs so please take a picture and ask an adult to email them to school!
2) This second lesson explores plant sculptures. You may not have all the equipment it says on the PowerPoint so just use what you have lying around the house so this might be old books and magazines, thread or string. There is also a pictionary activity you can try with people at home!
1) Your first activity asks you to consider your new school's moto (ours is 'Together We Can') and the expectations they have for you. Your task is then to design a uniform to match these!
2) Your second sheet gets you to think about the skills you need in secondary school. Could you talk about these with someone in your house?
