Welcome to Years 5 and 6
New June 29th: Learning Grid 8
Please see the information below for suggested ways in which you can structure and use the activities provided. We would also direct your attention to the National Oak Academy, which has been established to support all children at this difficult time. A programme of daily lessons is available at https://www.thenational.academy/ and some of these are referenced within our learning grids. Children can complete their tasks in their home learning books.
We have received some super photographs of examples of work completed. We are very proud of you all!
On this page, you will find some activities that will help you with your learning at home. The grids accessible via the link below have been designed so that you can choose activities in any order. There are also links to websites that will help you with your learning.
Seesaw, an online learning platform, will be used from 8th June 2020 to enable children to access activities each day, upload photographs of completed work and respond to teachers' messages. Your child can ask any questions they have or share their work using Seesaw. Access codes have been sent home. Please contact us at school if you require any help.

New for 29th June - Learning Grids (Number 8) for Year 5 and Year 6
I See Maths video lessons are updated daily.
Parents and carers, please feel free to choose activities from different key stages if you feel that they are appropriate for your child's individual needs. Your child can communicate with a teacher via Seesaw. If they have any questions or would like to share their work for feedback, this can be done using Seesaw.
You could complete:
- 1 activity from the maths grid
- 1 activity from the English grid
- 1 activity from the research/topic grid. This could be completed over a number of days.
Keep a record of what you have completed in your book. Each day, write the date at the top of the pages you use. You can earn a certificate for completing the set challenges when you come back to school.
We have included a possible daily timetable that you may wish to use, amend or guide you when structuring the day for your children. We hope that you find it helpful!
Seesaw Home Learning
Seesaw is an online learning platform that enables children to complete set activities each day, upload their learning and respond to messages from staff. Access codes have been sent home via email, and the system will be up and running from 8th June. We will still share our learning grids on the website, but we hope that this new system will be helpful and easy to use. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions or if you need a code to access the system.

English Learning and Resources
You can find resources to help you with reading, writing and spelling below. The comprehension activities include a text to read and some questions to answer. There are three levels of challenge, with 'three stars' providing the greatest challenge. You could read on-screen and use the questions to talk about what you have read. If you would like to record your answers in your home book, an adult could check them with the answers provided. No cheating! Please note that the 'Grammar Practice Booklet' was written with Year 6 SATs tests in mind, and there are references to the test dates. These, of course, are cancelled for the 2020 academic year, but the content is still appropriate for practice at the correct level.
