Year 6 Learning at Home Page.
Learning at Home Page.
While the school is closed due to the coronavirus outbreak I would encourage you to do some form of academic activity each day - just to keep your skills up-to-date. You've all worked so hard this year in order to prepare for both the SATs and the transition to Secondary School: it would be a great shame now if you didn't keep practicing all the things you have learnt and keep them fresh in your memory. Hopefully we will be back to normal as quickly as possible (I don't want to miss a minute with this super class!) but in the meantime... work will be posted on this page for you to access at home. You can also access all the normal websites listed below to keep your brains in tip-top working order! If you want to email me any questions or for any reason at all you can on: email@example.com
This work will set every week and will continue to be added to every Monday. Please email me if you are having any problems at: shansen.stbeesvillage.cumbria.sch.uk or message me on Classdojo.
All work will also be available on Showbie; this allows the children to write on the worksheets without having to print them off. The answer sheets will be accessed from this site. The showbie code your child will need is: VHR9J. They should know their password.
I have left last week's learning below the new one just in case you needed it. Please remember to just do as much as you can - we are all under an immense amount of pressure at the moment. Keep reading and plenty of fresh air!
Parents may have noticed that I have not set the usual Homework as well as the Home Learning! This is because it's ALL done 'at home'. You can access all of the learning and activities on Education City and I would encourage you to keep visiting Read Theory to keep your comprehension skills up to speed. I have put more tests for you to have a go at on the spag.com site (all links to the sites are at the bottom of this page). Other than that: plenty of fresh air, help whoever you live with around the house and garden (great time to learn how to iron or weed) and develop your cooking skills.
English: Continue to work on the Talk for Writing Unit below.
Week beginning 25/01/21. As last week these are all on Showbie too.(Same code)

You can also visit famous attractions from the comfort of your own home by taking a virtual tour of them. Why not try some out and then post any interesting ones of the Class Dojo page so everyone can have a look. You could start with some of the ones below:

There will be many more - explore! Remember that Google street maps are also a fabulous way to see the world while we are stuck in our houses. Visit a new city, country, football ground... the world is a fabulous place!
Anyone who is a Harry Potter fan may like to visit: https://www.wizardingworld.com/collections/harry-potter-at-home which has been developed by J K Rowling for those of us stuck at home. Even if you only learn to draw a Niffler it's worth a look!
Don't forget the drawing tutorials we have done in class on You Tube: there's lots to keep you busy and develop your drawing skills.
