Home Learning Activities 

These Home Learning Activities aim to enable our Year 6 to continue with their learning while there is a period of school closure. All activities are optional but are designed to provide structure and focus for each day. Activities are based on the National Curriculum expectations for Year 6. A new Home Learning Activities letter will be uploaded to these Year 6 page each Friday. Please do not worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. All children find elements of learning challenging at times. Please email Ms Woodcock with any questions or if support is needed.
