Year 6 2019 - 2020

Miss Wilson

Welcome to Year 6!

                               Week beginning 13th July:

So, here we are: the final week of year 6! It has come round so quick and I can't believe we are saying goodbye to another wonderful Whirley class. I am still so sad that the children have had such an unusual end to their Primary years, but am sure they are all excited to enter the next chapter of their lives. I would like to say a huge well done to all of the children who have been working so hard with their home learning during such a strange time; you should be extremely proud of yourselves! Please see below the links to this week's maths work. 

In English this week we are writing letters to Miss Wilson, reflecting on our time at Whirley and saying some special thank yous. The children who are still working at home are welcome to write their own and I'm sure Miss Wilson would love to read them!

The Year 6 Leavers Books have arrived! Please come and collect yours if you are not currently attending school. 

A new Topic Grid is attached below, which links closely to the work we will be doing in school. As usual, I am happy for these to be interpreted to keep the children engaged/ on task. I will be uploading some examples of what we are up to in school to the class Dojo page. 

Finally, please remember that if you would like to create some tie dye, please bring the following into school: a plain, white t-shirt (an old one will do or even just a white tea towel). I also ask if each child could bring in a small cardboard box. A mini, individual cereal box would be perfect or a large match box. This will be used for a D&T activity. 

Please find this week's learning attached below. 


Please follow the links below for this week's music activities.

Hello Year 6! I am really excited to be coming back into year 6 now I have returned from maternity leave! I have taught most of you in year 4 and am looking forward to seeing how much you have grown and learnt over the past 2 years. I have had a sneaky peek on your Class Dojo and I am overwhelmed with how hard you have been working at home- well done!

I am working hard behind to scenes to get your Yearbook completed before you leave school and hopefully it will arrive in time before the summer. I will send out a letter soon so your parents can order you one or more to take home to remember the great times you have had at Whirley.

Home Learning - week beginning 01.06.20

Please see the links below to this week’s home learning tasks.

English: I have selected the book ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar as this week’s English focus. Please don’t worry if you have already read it, this just means you will have to use your imagination a little more when completing the tasks. Read Chapter 1 and 2 of the book (see attached files) and complete the activities linked to the story. We will continue reading this book as a class throughout the summer term.

Continue to use Spelling Shed every day to stay hot on your spellings!

Maths: This week’s focus is ‘Fractions, Decimals and Percentages’. I have attached 4 maths activities from White Rose for you to complete, along with the answer sheets for you to mark. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Continue to use TT Rockstars every day and complete the daily challenge. I will be looking at those leaderboards!

Foundation subjects: I have created a new learning grid containing 9 activities loosely linked to the theme 'Holes'. Please try and complete at least 2 of these challenges per week, aswell as your daily Maths and English activities. If you would still like to continue using the previous learning grid, that's absolutely fine; choose what you will enjoy the most! Please note, I am happy for these to be interpreted and for your child to use their creativity when completing the tasks- whatever makes them engaged in their learning.

 I would love to see you add any work you have been doing at home to the class dojo where I can award points and give you individual feedback.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of you in school very soon - Mrs Sleath
