Year 6

The suggested timings for the daily work timetable is only meant as a guide.  This is a suggested maximum time you should be expecting your child to undertake the activities we provide.  We are passionate and fully committed in supporting you to provide education for your children whilst they are off school during the current world events, and all of the activities we have provided are suggested. Above all, your child's happiness and well-being is the most important thing.  Use your judgement as a parent to decide what to ask your child to complete each day and if you want to do things in a slightly different way than is suggested - then feel free to get creative with the activities. 

During the day, we recommend that you focus on these activities.  We have added some suggested times to give you an idea about how long each activity should take. Teachers will be updating this page daily to support children to continue their learning at home. Further information for each of the daily activities can be found below.

Setting Descriptions using figurative language


WALT: write a setting description using figurative language and show not tell to create atmosphere.

Using the skills you have learnt this week, write a short setting description that intrigues the reader and leaves them wanting to read on.

Choose one of the pictures below to write your setting description. Remember to read each sentence through carefully to ensure it makes sense, is punctuated correctly and your spellings are accurate.

Wow us with your amazing description and we will publish them on the website!

Numeracy Ninjas

Algebra – Remember to substitute (replace) the letters with the equivalent number and then complete the calculation. Show your workings out in your book. Always follow BODMAS.


If a = 8, b = 2, c = 3 and d = 9


a2 – (b + c)= 82 – (2 + 3)2 = 64 – 52 = 64 – 25 = 39


ac / 2b = (8x3) ÷ (2x2) = 24 ÷ 4 = 6


3b3 = 3 x (2x2x2) = 3 x 8 = 24


(2c – b)2 = (6 – 2)2 = 42 = 16


√d = √9 = 3 because 3x3 = 9, so the square root of 9 is 3.

Please see ‘Generic Maths to do at home’ section so your child can practise the times tables sheet they are currently on.
