Another useful link (thanks Mrs Swan)
This offers daily maths lessons with videos and work to complete.
It covers each year group and looks really good.
Take a look!
Sunday 29th March 2020:
The Year 6 team would like to send our love and best wishes to the children and their families at this time.
We will leave the links to educational websites on so please continue to use these. Please also see the uploaded documents providing investigations and activities.
There are some topic activities that should provide some revision for our current topic 'Blood Heart'. Ideally, the 'label the heart' should be completed first (the other activities will give the answers to this task).
We will update these regularly so you can continue to support your children at home and we will try to ensure that these are in the form of word documents where possible.
Please find below a list of helpful websites that can be used to support your child's learning at home.
Please see your child's homework book for their login.
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.

Welcome back to Term 4.
The Year 6 team welcome Miss Browne to the team this term - we can't wait to get started!
The Year 6 P.E. lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon this term and will be taken by Mr Spooner and Mrs Mathers; as always please make sure children have their P.E. kits in school every day to allow for timetable changes.
We look forward to continuing our topic of 'Blood Heart' this term and we can't wait to see what happens to the character of Cameron in our book 'Pig-Heart Boy'.
This is a particularly busy term as we make our final preparations for the week of SATs early in term 5. Keep an eye out for the date of our meeting to outline the timetable and other details for this week. If you have any concerns regarding this please do talk to a member of the Year 6 team.
Welcome back and Happy New Year!
Thank you so much for all the cards, gifts and good wishes that we received at the end of last term - they really are very much appreciated.
We begin Term 3 with the topic 'Blood Heart'.
We began this by dissecting a pig's heart in order to begin to understand the human heart and circulatory system.
Some of the children were, shall we say, a little apprehensive but in the end they all enjoyed the session and they've learned a great deal already!
Take a look at some of the pictures!
Letters regarding Kilvrough arrangements along with a suggested kit list have gone out to all Year 6s attending this residential.
Please complete the form carefully and completely and return to school as soon as possible.
There is a meeting regarding Kilvrough on Monday 21st October at 3.15pm in Class 14 but if you have any questions before then please get in touch!
Year 6 P.E.
We enjoyed a great P.E. lesson in the sun on Friday afternoon - we saw lots of teamwork (our value of the month) and many examples of cooperation and supportiveness!
Year 6 have worked in groups to research key events from World War II and have shared their knowledge with each other. Each group performed some drama based on this research and then ended with a freeze-frame! Take a look at the photos!
Welcome to Year 6
We are learning all about World War II this term.
We have read 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo and the children have based their writing on this story of two evacuees and their time in Devon during the war.
Homework will be set on Monday or Tuesday and will be due in the following Thursday or Friday - the children will be aware of deadlines that they need to meet.
