Year 6 - Mrs Jones and Mr McKenna

Summer Term Home Learning Tasks 

 

Hello Year 6!

 

Welcome back to those of you who have joined us in school in the last couple of weeks and hello to everyone still learning from home!  

 

I hope you found it useful last week going on a treasure hunt to find information from the website of your new school. If you haven't done this task yet I will leave the link at the end of the learning tasks this week. 

 

This week I have set a Maths and English task each day and then a daily PSHE transition to secondary school task too. Details of these tasks can be found below. 

 

I have been missing Mr. Yates' maths challenges on the weekly newsletter recently,  so this week I have found two brainteasers to keep your minds active! I will post the answers next week. 

 

Take care and stay safe everyone! 

Below is the weekly timetable of learning activities for you to do at home. Click on the links below to complete the work. You don't have to print anything out; simply do the work on a piece of paper or in a note book.

 

Please check your tasks on MyMaths. I have been leaving feedback on tasks that have been completed recently. I am very proud of all of you for your continued efforts - you are superstars! 

 

 

From Mrs Jones :)

History - A Child's War

 

This week, the focus of learning is about Anne Frank. This young Jewish girl went into hiding during World War Two in a tiny attic in Amsterdam. She was eventually captured by German soldiers and died but whilst she was in hiding she wrote a diary. This diary allows historians to piece together what life was like for children during World War Two. 

 

 

Watch the short video below to learn about Anne Frank. There is also a reading comprehension to complete. (There are 3 levels to choose from) 

 

As an extra task to you could produce a fact file all about Anne Frank, or begin your own diary that charts what life is like at the moment in Britain.
