Year 6

In light of recent development with the Coronavirus outbreak and recommended school closure, it is important that while the children are not at school during this time, they continue their learning.  

We appreciate that many of you will be working from home with your children in the house, so to try and make this manageable we have collated some useful resources (both online and printable), and an overview of what the children have already covered during their time with us since September can be found in each year group folder. Individual log-in information for websites and apps (where it is required) can be found in your child’s reading diary. This information is designed to provide guidance and to support you when the opportunity arises for you to work with your child.

We have purchased your child three CGP books (which the children can write in) to cover Maths, Grammar and Reading. The answers to the CGP books can be found at the back, should you need to clarify or discuss answers. In addition, we have handed out our Easter revision packs earlier as a precaution. We would advise that children work through these at a steady pace and across all three subjects. Once these books have been completed, please explore the activities below.
 
Thank you,
 
Year 6 Team
