Home Learning – Year 6

During these times of uncertainty, we are trying to ensure that ALL children can access ALL lessons every day as is the requirement. This means that we will be putting all content up on the blog so that, if children are at home due to the virus because they have to isolate, they can still access the learning.

On the right-hand side of the Year 6 blog, you will see Home Learning categories. From Monday 12th October, all home learning will be found from 8:00am in these categories on a day-to-day basis. If your child is self-isolating, therefore, please get them to check the categories each morning.

English, Maths and Reading will be uploaded daily, whilst there will be one or two topic subjects each day.

If you have any queries, please let your class teacher know.

Kind regards

The Year 6 Team

You may find it helpful to establish some ground rules at the start of the session. Make sure that students know who the relevant people in the school are that they can talk to if they are worried about any of the topics discussed in today’s lesson. 

TP – Feedback their partner’s response

  • What social media do you use? (record on whiteboards) Ask pupils to think for a minute and count how many social media platforms they use. 


  • What is cyberbullying?
  • In what ways do you think cyberbullying can happen?

It’s not always easy to know what’s safe online and what’s not. Let us look at Staying Safe Online rules. It will guide you and help you to keep safe and to know what to do when things go wrong.

TP- What rules would you tell a friend on keeping safe online?

Staying Safe Online

1)Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.

2)Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. – Once you’ve put a picture of yourself most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

3)Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

4)Never give out your passwords

5)Don’t befriend people you don’t know

6)Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.Speak to your parent or carer about peoples suggesting you do

7)Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

8)Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

9)Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

10)If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.


We will look at 3 scenarios and you will discuss a solution to each problem and why you chose that solution. 

Scenario 1

Scenario 2

You have received a nasty text message from someone in your class. What could you do to keep yourself safe and get help?

L.I. To explore a range of pictures and performances

Over the next few weeks, you will be creating an engaging short story. Look at these 2 short story extracts with the three front covers. Match the extracts to the front cover? What clues did you use?

What is a genre? Can you suggest any before looking at the list below?

Read this short story and answer these questions:

Most good Narratives, no matter the genre, have most, if not all of the above elements. Your story’s theme will be winter, but you can choose your own plot. We will look at different winter clips and videos to begin thinking about what you want your story to be about (the plot). You will focus more on the character and setting tomorrow and the plot later in the week.

Activity: Look at the pictures and then the video clip of winter scenes. Note down what you feel, hear, see when looking. Also, what might you touch and taste?

Extension: Can you extend your descriptions with expanded noun phrases or figurative language (similes, metaphor, onomatopoeia, alliteration).
