Monday 29th June 2020 - Year 6 Home Learning

Dear all

I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a new week. 

Unless you have already heard, I want to share with you the wonderful news that Mrs Burns is now a mum. Her baby boy was born last week.  

This week  I will continue to set tasks for you here every day. We will also try to have an online session on Wednesday if possible although this depends on other things.  As we did last week we will send an email to parents about this.  

Do not forget to look at the THINKING AND TALKING TASK for this week too.

Here are your learning tasks for today. 


For your literacy this week we will be working through a new 'Talk4writing' pack called TREASURE by James Walker. 

There are 14 Activities to complete so you will need to work through at least two activities each day. 

Start with Activities 1 and 2 today. 

Click on the link below to go straight to the activity pack. 




Click on the link below to access today’s maths activity. 

Watch the video on today's theme:  Summer Week 10:  Lesson 1 on 'Introducing the Ratio Symbol.'

Then click on BBC Bitesize next to the video and click on your year group tab to access your work for today. 

Please remember you can rewatch the video as many times as you need to and you can go back to it when you are answering the questions.




For reading this week we will continue listening to the audio story - The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Click on the link below to open the audio file.  The book has 24 chapters. Try to carry on listening to 2 or 3 chapters each day so we can finish it this week. 

Keep a notebook while listening to the reading.  Make notes about new vocabulary you can look up later - new words in the text or other powerful words, adjectives, similes etc that you can then use in your writing, including the school memories in the Literacy task above. 



TOPIC - History

Today's session is about what life was like in the kingdom of Benin.
