Churchill and Attenborough
Dear Year Six parents,
We hope that you and your family are well. This is this Year Six home learning page and we hope that you will find it useful to structure your child's day at home. Whilst these resources are for you to access and use at your own discretion, we believe that it is of high importance to ensure that the children have a clear structure to their day and establish a routine to keep things as normal as possible at this difficult time. The activities have been carefully chosen and designed so that your child can work independently.
Below you will find a timetable with learning objectives and activities to be completed into the green exercise books that were sent home with the children, plus links to additional learning resources below that. The workbooks can be given to your teacher when we return to school. If you have any questions regarding the learning, you can contact us on the email addresses below and we will respond providing that we are in good health ourselves.
Please do not feel pressured to complete these tasks if your child is feeling unwell as it is more important that they focus on resting and recovering. Also, please feel free to adjust the tasks in order to suit your child's ability and learning style.
Record any work in the work books provided, which can be handed to your child's class teacher when we return to school.
Here is a list of useful websites that you may also like to access to support your child's learning at home.
