Home learning for year 6 (6TB, 6SB)

Hi everyone, please explore some ideas and activities for your home learning.

Rememember that you already have study guides, try to spend some time every day using these.

Look at your past SATs papers and go through the questions that you found tricky.

Practise the spellings from your yellow spelling book but also find other words with the same pattern. Don't forget Spelling Shed.

You should spend some time every day reading your current reading book. Write character reviews or book reviews. Create your own VIPERS questions.

You have times table guides - use them and practise them. Use MyMaths - we will update the homework tasks regularly but there are lots of independent learning opportunities there. The maths study mats have the most important information on them - learn that and you're flying!

Don't forget to be mindful. Use the breathing techniques you learned in year 5.

You can contact us on:

year6@dovecote.school

If you can't open the documents on a tablet or phone, you may need to use a computer.
