Welcome to Year 6!

Our team consists of:

Mrs Shepherd - Class Teacher

Miss Mathews - Teaching Assistant




Hi Class,



For English this week, we are focusing on the Babcock Writing activity - Gobbledegook and Twaddle - which is to create believable definitions for five nonsense word then challenge yourself to use them in a short piece of writing. Try to fool your family and friends!  

We are focusing on Word Classes for our GaPS activity.  

There are this weeks spellings - the 'ay' sound - and the dictation passage to go with them, along with a Reading Comprehension about Marcus Rashford.



For Maths, we are moving over to Problem Solving activities, which may be fun to do as a family! I have put up an Expected (MA) and a Greater Depth (HA) for some of them - chose which one you want to do.

We start with planning a foreign family holiday, moving onto an Inheritance Investigation  and ending the week with trying to solve some more Murder Mysteries! smiley


We are finishing New Arithmetic Paper 3.  


This week we have set five Art challenges linked to the topic of the Ancient Greeks. While some useful links to resources have been provided, please feel free to use your own or find alternatives if need be. Choose the activities you like the best and have a go. Remember to send in any photos you take of you doing the challenges. Have fun! 


This week we are also going to be covering part of the Science and PSHME curriculum through our SRE programme. 


We are aware that some of you may be enjoying the Music / MFL / STEM  activities, so we have put up some of those for you too. 

Please remember that all of these resources are only a suggestion - do not feel you have to complete them all. Do whatever catches your imagination and is 'do-able' for you as a family. 


We are very much enjoying seeing your photos and short videos - please keep them coming! 


All the resources you need are below. 

Look after your selves and keep safe

Mrs Shepherd and Ms Mathews








General Information




Our PE lessons this term will be Circuit Training on a Tuesday afternoon and Games on a Friday afternoon but please make sure your PE kit is in school all week. 



Home Learning will be issued on a daily basis, to be completed that evening ready for the next session. Spellings will continue to be issued on a Friday and to be completed and handed in by Wednesday. They will be given a weekly LSCWC spelling pattern sheet and activity sheet to be completed in pencil or blue pen. 

Although Y6 are no longer using the Renaissance Reading scheme, they are still expected to read at least 2 / 3 times a week at home and record it in their planner. 



The PTFA have purchased a great times table package for the school called 'TT Rockstars'. There are lots of different areas the children could go into including the ‘Garage’ or ‘Studio’. The Garage is a training mode where they work through the tables (recommended) and the Studio is random questions up to the 12x12 times table. Ultimately, we hope this makes learning the times tables fun while they become more fluent and knowledgeable in their times table recall. They can also earn ‘coins’ to update their avatar rock star!




If you have any concerns, or question, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached through Class Dojo or our class e-mail account (, or the school telephone number. We are usually in the classroom most days after school , or from 8.40am in the morning. 


Kind Regards


Mrs Shepherd & Ms. Mathews
