Year 6 2020/2021


Hello to our Year 6 class and their families!


If you are currently learning from home, this is where we will add our links and activities each week. They will mirror the work we cover in school but please don’t panic! You don’t have to do everything, just enjoy doing what you can together.


Generally speaking, the English homework, Maths homework and spellings will still be posted on Seesaw every Monday afternoon. Below are links for times tables and reading at home:


It would be lovely if you could share your work with us through Seesaw or email at


Take care,

Mr Houghton, Miss Haws, Mrs McCormick and Mrs Brown. 


Timetable for Year 6 in 2022

Term Curriculum Overview - Spring 1 2022

Maths and English for those working from home:


For those of you having to stay at home, it's always a good idea to use the time to do a bit of revision on some key skills. To keep your skills sharp, use the Times-Tables Rock Stars, Oxford Owls and Read Theory websites - they are chock full of excellent practice tasks.



Writing Challenge -  You could write a diary extract/recount telling me about your week off. I would like it to be at least 3 paragraphs long and I would like you to focus on using description (adjectives, adverbs and similes).  In your diary, I would like you to pick three different events/days and describe each one, telling me what happened, who was there and when it was. Explain your thoughts and feelings and how the events were.


Good luck with all of these activities and I hope you are keeping well.  If you can, it would be great if you could upload your work to SeeSaw.

Maths Work - working from home? Try these tasks:

This week in class we will be exploring ordering numbers and also rounding.  I will upload any worksheets we complete.  Watch these videos to help your understanding:

This video is for ordering:

In English, this week we are focusing on using prepositions in our writing, adding detail and description. Below are different activities you can do to remind yourself of how to use prepositions in your sentences.


There is also a link below about settings and how we identify a setting. After completing your character description, you may wish to do a setting description of the scene where the witches are on the heath. We will be doing this at the end of the week also.


Any worksheets we do in class will be uploaded below to help support your home learning.


In Maths this week, we will be working on adding and subtracting numbers that have a decimal.  We will also be looking at labelling number lines too.  I will be uploading any worksheets that we do this week.


Below are some videos that will help you with the work.

Hello all,

I hope you are still doing very well.  Here are some more tasks to keep you occupied if you are stuck at home isolating !  As always, if there are any problems, just give me a shout. 


Mr Houghton :)

P.s. I would love to see anything that you are proud of on seesaw, twitter or email! :)



Task 1 - Mathematics: More problems relating to time and clocks - so very useful.  The worksheet is attached below.  Try practising reading a 24 hour clock and understanding how to read the time in 24 hour clock.


Task 2 - Grammar: Modal Verbs worksheet.  Explore a variety of Modal Verbs (They tell us the possibility of something happening.)


Task 3 - Create your own comic strip on an A4 page. It can be about anything.  Maybe use characters from a story you like e.g. Harry Potter or Avengers.  Remember to think about who is going to be in your story, what is going to happen in your comic and where it is going to be.  Think of a start, middle and an end before you begin.  In a comic strip, you can annotate each picture and also use character's speech bubbles.  I would love to see them and put them on the website if you finish them.


Task 4 - Reading : Continue to read a book from your house.  If you need any suggestions for online books or eBooks, let me know.


Task 5 - Online apps: keep using Times Tables Rock Star and the Spelling shed; I have all log ins if you need them.


Task 6 - Inclusive Curriculum: After researching Greta Thunberg recently, it could now be a really good opportunity to explore how we can protect our planet and how we can look after the environment.  It would be great if you could do a small project on this.  You might want to make a book art book, a poster, a power-point or a video presentation of your chosen topic.  

You could explore sustainable energy/renewable energy - find out what it is, different ways of producing sustainable energy like wind turbines or solar panels and draw a picture of different types of sustainable energy sources.  National Geographic - renewable energy


You might also want to explore climate change, what causes climate change and what the effects of climate change are.

Then you might want to look at how we can combat climate change in our local communities.  Look at reduce, reuse and recycle, as well as, fossil fuels and renewable energy.


It is a really important topic and you can present your ideas in anyway that you want.


Enjoy the work and, as always, make sure you do something that makes you smile every day!


All the best,


Mr Houghton :)

It's important that you access Times tables Rock Stars, the Spelling Shed and read some a of a book weekly as these will help keep your basic skills coming along.  If you need any of the log ins for these please do let me know.  However, the most important thing is that you keep busy and happy!


Thanks again and have a great week!


Mr Hall :) 


P.S.  if you haven't already, check out the challenges from previous weeks!


Task 1 - Maths : Learn to tell the time.  Try and learn 24 hour clock too.  Then work out the time problems I have attached.

Task 5 - Online apps - keep using Times Tables Rock Star and the Spelling shed; I have all log ins if you need them.


Task 6 - Inclusive Curriculum:  in the last term we were exploring Ideal Societies.  I would like you to think about what the perfect society (place to live) would look like.  I want you to plan a town/village/city and try to make it the perfect place for YOU to live.  it is all your opinion, therefore there is no right or wrong answer.

Here are some prompts for you to think about: what shops are there? What do the houses look like? Are there any natural features like lakes, mountains, forests or oceans etc? What do the people look like or wear? Do they have any form of transport or do they walk? What jobs do they have? What do they do for fun? Are there any animals? Are there any places to visit like zoos, theme parks or cinemas?


This is how you might do this project:

Step 1 - Make a list of all buildings/shops/natural features that would make your town perfect - think about transport and where houses and shops might be placed.

Step 2 - Make a list of what would make the people that live there perfect - would they have food, jobs, hobbies, homes, pets, families or money?

Step 3 - Think about how you want your people to live and how you want your town to be organised. Where would everything go, who would look after it?

Step 4 - Get a page and draw or paint your perfect society/town.  Think about where you want everything to go to make it perfect.

Step 5 - write a paragraph about what makes your settlement a perfect place to live.

Step 6 - Tweet it!



Tasks for week beginning 27th of April

Here are some tasks to work your way through this week.  Try and find the enjoyment in learning and, of course, if you have any questions or problems, give me a shout! :)  Feel free to keep going with the Easter Work which is further down the class page or start working away at these tasks! :)

Mr Hall

P.S. All of the worksheets should be attached just below this writing.


Task 1: Maths Worksheet based on the four functions -  attached to the class page.


Task 2: Grammar worksheet based direct speech - look at the rules poster and have a go.


Task 3: Writing challenge - write a story with direct speech, use some characters and a setting of your own choice. Check out the writing task worksheet.


Task 4:  Find time to read a book and watch a movie, then chat to someone in your house about it.


Task 5:  Keep on practising on Times Tables Rock Stars and the spelling shed.


Task 6:  Do a project based on an Ancient Society.

Choose from: The Indus Valley People,  The Ancient Sumer People, The Shang Dynasty and (my personal favourite) the Ancient Egyptians.

A project may be presented as a Book Art Book, a poster, a PowerPoint or even a video of yourself talking about what you have learned or found interesting. Try to pick out things that you find interesting like the burial process, their armies, the weapons, their art or the rulers of Ancient Egypt. You might want to creatively display information and facts and decorate them while also do a piece of art or a model - that might be what your whole project will look like. -> here is a website for some good information on Egypt 


YouTube is also great for information on Ancient Civilisations, as well as, Horrible Histories on the BBC iPlayer.


Good Luck and remember to pick something you enjoy! :)





Welcome to the class page for Year 6. 

We're hoping to create a gallery of all the lovely things you're doing while school is closed.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well, I have seen some of you on Twitter which has been fantastic! Keep up the good work because it is giving me a good laugh! If you have not done one of Mr England’s challenges, why not try one today? Myself and Ms McCormick are really missing all of you and we cannot wait to see all your smiling faces again soon; I know Ms McCormick is very keen to get the raffle up and running again soon!

Most importantly, keep doing at least one thing a day that makes you and your family smile but also keep doing little bits of homework to keep your brain in tip top condition! The grammar, reading and maths practise books should last a little while longer so keep going with them. You may be doing one test a day in each subject or maybe one page a day from each book or maybe you might do just one page/test from one book each day.  It is about pacing yourself and doing a little bit each day.  If you find something too hard, you can always skip it and come back to it later. If you complete these booklets, please let me know and I can direct you to some new activities. As well as using these booklets to develop your skills, you should also be exploring TT Rockstars,  The Spelling Shed and a book of your choice.

The Easter Holidays have sort of begun now so I am not uploading a hefty amount of work, just some ideas to keep you busy.  Remember, if you need any help or even want to show off something that you are proud of, please do e-mail me (some of you have already and it has been great to hear from you) or tweet us! Please do Tweet us, it always puts a smile on all our faces!

Good luck with everything and I am sure we will see each other all again soon,

Mr Hall 😊
