Coronavirus Update

Following school closure due to the coronavirus, please see the weekly timetable below. A new timetable for each week will be available each Monday morning by 9 am.

Where appropriate, answers for the previous week will also be posted on the following Monday. Please mark your child's work and try to guide them with their corrections. Where work can be returned to me, you should upload this via the pupil login page (homework area) to alert me.

You should aim to complete the work set on the relevant day. Details of this work can be found in the curriculum grids below. Should you have any questions, please feel free to email me: s.connolly@britannia.lancs.sch.uk.

Thank you for your support.

Your child should be completing the daily activities from the curriculum grids (see below for daily activities) in the exercise book which has been sent home with them.

Please also see the following instructions to help you with downloading home learning on an iPhone/iPad/Android device. I have sent the majority of home learning home as a hard copy as well.

Thank you very much for your support.

Accessing Home Learning (iPad/iPhone/Android) Here are some instructions how to access and extract the files from a ZIP file if accessing the home learning on an iPad/iPhone/Android device.

Maths Curriculum Grid An overview of daily Maths activities for the next two weeks (wc 23rd and 30th March 2020). I'd recommend doing 3-4 pages a day (a bit of Arithmetic and a bit of Reasoning).

Maths Methods Here is how we would be expecting your child to work out some of their Arithmetic.

Topic Curriculum Grid An overview of daily curriculum activities for the next two weeks (wc 23rd and 30th March 2020). I'd recommend doing 1 a day. 

Grammar/Spelling/Reading Curriculum Grid An overview of daily Grammar/Spelling/Reading activities for the next two weeks (wc 23rd and 30th March 2020). I'd recommend doing 1-2 pages of Grammar a day. The recommended Comprehension can be found in the children's home learning area under 'Past SATS Reading 2016' and then 'Past SATS Reading 2017-2019'. Please do a bit of Spelling every day! Revisit the spelling rules and practise the spellings which the rule applies to but particularly the exceptions! Then practise the Y3/4/5 and 6 statutory word list. Your child needs to be able to confidently able to spell the majority of these by the end of Year 6 and use them in context in a sentence correctly. Your child should also be reading for pleasure for a little bit every day too.

English Curriculum Grid An overview of daily English activities for the next two weeks (wc 23rd and 30th March 2020) - 1 per day.

Hello! The teacher in Year 6 is Miss Connolly and our wonderful teaching assistants are Mrs Hart, Mrs Taylor and Mrs Lord who help us at different times during the week. We are going to have lots of fun in Year 6 and have had a fantastic start back as the oldest members of Britannia. 

Please see the newsletter below for all of the exciting learning that we will be doing this half term. It is really important that your child is completing as much of their home learning as independently as possible this year in preparation for high school.

If you have any queries or concerns, you can speak to me on the yard, arrange a meeting via the office or you can email me on s.connolly@britannia.lancs.sch.uk.

We have been very busy so far in Year 6! Please have a look at the gallery below to look at what we have been up to....
