Other Activities

 

Remember that the following learning can occur daily, to support you as much as possible within the parameters of the year 6 curriculum:

  • CGP Books – You should continue to use your CGP books to support your learning in SPaG, Maths and Reading and to use self-assessment judgements to improve on areas of weaknesses.
  • TES 15 + 1 (see link below) – This programme contains a range of both arithmetic and reasoning problems, questions and SATS papers which will support you to improve your maths skills. All answers can be found on this programme as well as YouTube tutorials to support any misconceptions.

    Year 6 Sats Maths Revision


You can also continue to develop your learning by using these websites:

  • Mathletics
  • Times Table Rockstars
  • Spelling Shed

 

Also, continue to read your library book(s) as well as additional books at home. Before you start a new book, use the front cover and blurb and think about: any predictions you can make; which information you can see that will give you clues about the story and what you can deduce from the information provided

 

 

 

 

Reading

 

Reading at home

 

Junior Book Club

Don’t forget that you can watch some of your teachers reading class novels three times a week. Check your parent mail for the logins to our reading YouTube channel.  Mrs Eccles is reading Matilda. Miss Pipkin is reading The Creakers. Mrs Mutch is reading Malamander. Mr Hill is reading The Explorer. Mr Uppal is reading Harry Potter. Mr Roberts and Mrs Welch are reading a variety of children’s bedtime stories and Ms Keight is reading Mr Stink.

 

Websites

We have added https://readon.myon.co.uk/to the junior home learning page. This is a fantastic free resource, which we signposted you to a few weeks ago as it links to Accelerated Reader, which we use in school. It provides digital versions of over 7000 books and 5 daily news articles for pupils of all ages and abilities. There is also the option for books and articles to be read aloud to the children, ambitious vocabulary is highlighted and there is a link to an online dictionary. The benefits of daily reading are huge: young people that read daily are 4 times more likely to read above the level expected for their age compared with those that do not read daily. Children can carry out their Accelerated Reader quizzes at home (you must use the link on the website to access the site).

There are also a variety of virtual reading ebooks on the Oxford Owl website, which you might choose to use www.oxfordowl.co.uk .

 

Additional reading resources, such as recommended reads for ages 7-9 and 9-11 and Book Bingo for stories, text types and authors can be found here: Reading Resources

Book Blurb - Now read the blurb. Do any of your ideas change now that you have been presented with new information?
