Year 6 Home Learning Tasks

Your child should be working in the exercise books provided by school at the start of this lockdown, for all paper-based activities. 

Your child should then bring the pack back to school when we return so it can be checked by a member of staff. It is important that the work is completed neatly and to the high standard that we would expect from the children in school. The children's home learning exercise books will be kept and used again if necessary. 

Activities and tasks will be shared on the Purple Mash learning platform via 2e-mail each school day. Your child will need to respond to the daily email between 8:45a.m. and 10 a.m. the same day. This will effectively serve as a ‘register’ allowing us to both communicate the expectations for learning and to maintain a daily contact, opening lines for support/encouragement/engagement. 

If an email is not replied to by the agreed time, a member of staff will attempt to make contact in an alternative way. It is important that you keep us informed of any circumstances which may prevent your child from engaging with and completing the set schoolwork.

Thank you for your on-going support during these uncertain times.

Maths Fluency

Week beginning 1st March

Here's something a bit different! This week I would like you to follow the links to each day's work. There is a Youtube explanation of each question as well as some practice of quick calculations. Week 10

Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers







We will mostly be following the maths lessons from Oak National Academy. The direct link to the lesson will be given in the morning email. For each lesson, there is a video tutorial that will explain the focus skill just as I do in class on the board. Any related tasks and activities do not have to be printed out, instead they can be copied neatly and completed in the home learning exercise books.

For the next two weeks, we shall be revisiting multiplication and division.

It's harder than you think. First of all, write your name with every syllable separately.


This video guide will help you, as it explains the grid of glyphs and sounds. Remember that it's how your name sounds, not spelt.

Purple Mash emails


When you are on the Home page, go to Computing, then go to 2e-mail. 

You should then be able to see a smaller version of the same icon in a row of four. Click on that and it will take you to the emails and your inbox. Hopefully you should then be able to see my emails.
