Year 6 Learning at Home Page.
Learning at Home Page.
Welcome to the Year 6 Learning at Home Page! If there is any reason at all that you are unable to come to class then there will be work on here that will reflect what we are doing in class. 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 or on Classdojo.
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!
There are also the usual weekly tasks on the Homework page which appear on Fridays. 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.
The booklet below is two weeks of English work. It is not the book we are covering in class but will cover the same skills we are in Year 6. Keep scrolling down the page for a variety of other tasks.
Below there are links to Maths videos. Watch and then try the worksheets. This week we are revising angles.

The worksheets below are for you to become confident with the method above. The answers are also included - no cheating! (Match the sheet to the video - they are not in the same order!)
Answers (As above - check the file names match).
Science: Animals including humans. In class we have been looking at the importance of diet and exercise: Read the information and try to complete the sheet.

Reading: I hope you are all reading something! It doesn't matter what sort of text it is but read! Just to make sure - try the following comprehension.
French: Follow the link to revise how to talk about yourself in French and then take the quiz at the bottom. This will add beautifully to your learning if you are on Duo Lingo. Have a go at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjcbrj6/articles/zgnwr2p

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:
https://aqua.org/media/virtualtours/baltimore/index.html visit an aquarium.
https://www.houstonzoo.org/explore/webcams/ animals in the zoo.
https://www.louvre.fr/en/visites-en-ligne#tabs Visit the Louvre in Paris.
https://britishmuseum.withgoogle.com/ Explore British History
http://courtyard.museupicassobcn.org/ Remember Picasso's Weeping woman we looked at in class?
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.
