If you have any queries for either Mr Waldron or Mrs Roe, then please email one of the addresses above and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hello, Year 6!

You all know how important your education is and we don't want you to miss out on any learning whilst we're off so you can find activities to do for each day that you are off school right here.

We have split them into activities for every weekday. We'll publish spellings on a Monday too, which you can practise before asking someone to test you on Friday. We might ask you to complete a page of one of the maths or reading revision guides too, so make sure you keep those safe.

We will be regularly setting work on Purple Mash, so ensure that you are logging on often. We have also set up accounts for you all on Read Theory, which will help your reading comprehension enormously. These login details are in your work book that was sent home.

If we set any writing activities, complete these in your blue work book so you have a record of the work you have done. 

Lastly, we're really proud of how you've progressed academically this year so try your very best to keep up that standard whilst you're off.

Stay safe and look after each other.

Mr Waldron and Mrs Roe

Your literacy task today is to complete Page 28 of your SPAG revision book. It is about subjunctive verb forms. The subjunctive is a verb form or mood used to express things that could or should happen. It is used to express wishes, hopes, commands, demands or suggestions. For example, all the words in green are subjunctive verbs.

Watch this video before you begin as it explains it really well.

Your literacy task today is to write a letter of thanks. You will be writing a letter to all the NHS workers who are doing such incredible work at the moment.

We have written two different styles of letters this year. One in a formal style, as a Billeting Officer and one in an informal style, from a father to a daughter. This letter will be closer in style to the formal letter but remember to make it heartfelt.

Ensure it is structured in paragraphs and is laid out in the correct letter format. I'd love to see your finished results. Email your letter to your teacher at the address at the top of the page.

Your maths task today is to complete Pages 6 and 7 of your maths revision book: Place Value. Remember, the answers are at the back but only use them to mark at the end. If you got a question incorrect, see if you can figure out where you went wrong.

Your literacy task today is to complete the comprehension on Page 10 of your reading revision book, A Sudden Puff of Glittering Smoke. Remember the techniques we have talked about in class.

Your maths task today is to complete Page 8 and 9 of your maths revision book: Rounding and decimal numbers. Remember to email your teacher if you need any assistance.

Your literacy task for the next TWO days is to complete an information text about something of your choosing. Remember the one we did on Andy Warhol right at the start of the year? That's what I'm looking for. It could be on Man City, Stranger Things or St Joseph's - the choice is yours. As long as you are interested in it and you know lots about it - remember you can use the internet for research - then it will make a good information text. We have done some beautiful double page spreads this year so try and make yours as lovely as the ones you did in class. It'll need subheadings, be roughly chronological and include statistics and pictures. Send me your completed ones tomorrow (Friday) as for these to be as good as I know they can be, it will take more than one day. I can't wait to see them!

Your maths task today is to complete the fractions problems above. Remember the < or > points at the smaller number or fraction.

As it's Friday, let's be creative. We were learning about The Battle of Britain before we broke up and the importance of the RAF and its planes. Your task today is to complete the YouTube tutorial on drawing a Spitfire. When you have finished, email your teacher at the address above and we'll put our favourite ones on here and Twitter!
