Succeeding on the Journey through Lifelong Learning

Year 6

Hello Year 6


Welcome to our new Home Learning page where you will find your learning whilst school is closed.


Here are your first set of learning challenges. Have fun completing them!




This Live Lesson will help your child to think and work like a scientist, with a focus on taste, nutrition, and the energy that food provides.


What age can my child start social networking?


As a parent it’s important you know that all social networking platforms (or social networking apps, if on a smartphone) have age limits. Some social networks use technologies that might not be right for some ages, or engage with communities that are made up of people much older than your child.

Hi Year 6.

How are you all?  Hope you are enjoying the daily learning challenges and thanks to those of you including - Marley and Tia for sending in photos showing what amazing things you have been up to.


As 6GB know I love to read, especially children's books, so I have a bit of challenge for you.

If you have recently read a good children's book whilst you have been at home, please send in a picture of you with the book so that I can see which ones are worthy of a read.  If you want to email a bit of a blurb about it too that would be fantastic.  Let's see how many books we can read whilst we are at home.


I have just started the book 'Who Let the Gods Out' by Maz Evans so I will let you know what it's like once I have finished.


Good luck with this challenge and we look forward to seeing the books you will be reading.


Take care 


Miss Bates, Miss Haynes, Miss Grassie and Miss Bell smiley



Thank you for the reading challenge, Miss. Bates! I have been a very busy reader. I just finished a book yesterday, and started a new one today! I just finished 'The Secret Orphan' and have just started 'The Nightingale'. Both novels are historical fiction books about World War II. 


I'm excited to see what books you've been reading year 6!

Reading challenge


Hi Year 6.  


How are you doing with the reading challenge I set?


Thanks Miss Bell for sharing the books you are reading - they look fantastic.


I have just finished reading 'Who Let The Dogs Out' by Maz Evans.

It is a brilliant book which is hilariously funny and very cleverly written.  It is so good I have just ordered the next two books in the series.


Don't forget to send your book pictures to Pedro so he can upload to the photos section of the home learning page.  Happy reading

If you open the document it will give you information about what you need to do.

We are looking forward to seeing you completed projects - remember be creative!



Year 6 reading challenge.


Hi Year 6


Hope you are all well and enjoying the project we gave you.

As Sue said, it would be great to see everything you have been up to whether it's drawing, cooking, creating or spending tome doing something wonderful with your families.


How is the reading challenge going? I haven't seen any pictures or requests yet and I am getting to the end of the pile of books that I have at home so am looking for some recommendations.


I thought I would share the two I have recently finished.


They are both very good books, full of fun, humour and things to think about.



Take care of yourselves and each other and remember to send those recommendations to Pedro at


Happy reading
