Year 6

As you will already be aware, Shade School will be closed from the 20th March until further notice. Children who were in school on 19th March will have received a Home Learning Pack. Below I have added some ideas and useful links to keep Year 6 busy! I will keep this updated and send texts out when I have done so. If you have any questions/queries then please either ring school or email Mrs Clarkson ( and I will do my best to help.


Thank you so much for your continued support during these uncertain times. Mrs Clarkson and I are already coming up with plans to ensure that Y6 do not miss out on the important leavers events and memories. I will be contacting you all as soon as these plans are finalised.

Miss McCracken - PLEASE encourage children to work on their time tables. They are crucial in the Years 5 and 6 maths curriculum (if you have lost your child's login then please get in contact and I will send their details over as soon as I can)! - - There are countless games and activities linked to all parts of the curriculum on here (if you have lost your child's login then please get in contact and I will send their details over as soon as I can). - These are FANTASTIC home learning packs (the best I have seen!). They are split into weeks and have lots of maths/reading/writing activities and open ended projects for Year 6 to get their teeth stuck into. - There are a range of home learning packs for free on Classroom Secrets. We use Classroom Secrets in our Maths lessons so children will be familiar with the format (printing may be required). - Twinkl has released a range of free resources to support with school closures (Twinkl is like a holy grail for teachers! I hope you find it as useful as we do. Some printing may be required) - Joe Wicks is releasing daily PE lessons (30 minutes) every weekday at 9am. The link attached will take you to his YouTube channel.

Year 6 are an incredibly imaginative and creative class! This is the perfect chance for them to do projects about topics THEY want to do! Why not do a project all about Pokémon, Harry Potter or even swordfish? Any work that you or the children are proud of, email/Tweet them as I would love to see them!

Take a look at our exciting Year 6 curriculum :
