Y6 Home Learning

 

If your child has to miss any schooling through prolonged illness or through self-isolation, it is important that they are able to keep their skills sharp and not miss out on moving their learning forward.  On the year group page are lots of ways in which your child can continue to keep in touch with the learning taking place within the classroom; reading, spelling and maths.

Alongside this we have provided this link to the Oak Academy website where pupils can further practise their key skills in Maths and English in line with what is happening in the classroom environment.  Teaching videos and short sharp tasks will guide your child through the chosen objectives.
