Year Six


We are so immensely proud of how well Year 6 have settled back down after the last lockdown. 

We had such a lovely day celebrating the return to school and are now

looking forward to what we are going to continue to learn in school.


Remote Learning

Although we can’t actually be in school at the moment we are going to try and carry on with our learning as much as possible using TEAMS. You have all done a fantastic job of practising how to use TEAMS over the last term in school, so I am confident you will all do a great job of your home learning.

The timetable for our weekly lessons on TEAMS is below:

Year-6-Remote-Learning-Timetable week beginning 22.2.21

Please make sure you are logged into TEAMS in plenty of time to start the day. You will need paper, a pencil or pen everyday, make sure you have them ready before the lesson starts.

Remember to ‘Turn in’ work that is set in Assignments or you can take photographs of your completed work and email them to

Try your best and give 100% effort to everything you do. If you are struggling or need any help me, Mrs Kilgariff and Mrs Pedley will do our best to help you.

Stay safe

Mrs Belford, Mrs Kilgariff and Mrs Pedley

Mr Sigley’s 3 Peaks Challenge

We have a little challenge for you to try. We are launching our very own virtual 3 peaks challenge! It is a competition between each house at St Peter’s. The aim is for each house to get moving and race against each other to cover a distance of 26 miles! This is the same distance as the very famous 3 Peaks mountain challenge which some people try and walk in Britain.  If you click on the video below, Mr Sigley will tell you more about the challenge and how you can complete your miles at home.


There are more details here:

TT Rock Stars Competition 3.2.21

From Wednesday 3rd February until Tuesday 9th February we are taking part in the top of the rocks competition. We will be competing with other schools from across the city. Remember to play as often as you can.



Introducing the Oak Academy Virtual School Library!

Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch a virtual school library.

We would love to keep our children reading during lockdown.

Every week, a popular children’s author will become ‘Author of the Week’ and provide a free book or audiobook. There will also be videos and activities, click on the link for this exciting opportunity –


Did you know you can use a click and collect service for books from your local library throughout lock down?

This means you can still access and share a love of reading with you children at home. Please click on the link below for more information –

Children’s Mental Health Week 1.2.21

Next week in Children’s mental health week. This year’s theme is EXPRESS YOURSELF. Checkout this website for more ideas:

We have lots of activities planned for remote learning. Remember to email anything you do to:

Although working from home, we have an exciting term of lessons planned.

A lot of our lesson are linked to our geography topic about the rainforest. This will provide the stimulus for our writing in English as well as our focus in art along with the artist, Henri Rousseau. In science we will be looking at evolution and how things have adapted over time.


Tiger in a tropical Storm – Henri Rousseau

What a fantastic 1st half term we have had. Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed learning all about WW2.

We will continue reading Goodnight Mister Tom as part of our English lessons and look forward to where this journey will take us.

In History we are now moving to another exciting unit – Crime and Punishment across the ages. In this unit we will find out what legacy has been left by different civilisations in our judicial system. We start with the Romans and work all the way up to the present day



Our science topic involves learning about the human body and how to look after it. An opportunity for any budding doctors to shine.





Useful links to websites that could help at home:

This is an excellent site, providing revision help for KS2, KS3, KS 4 and KS5. This covers all subjects through activities and tests.

A wide range of KS2 SATs questions, from both past papers and their own team of teachers.

Revision pages at Woodlands Junior School. These revision pages support the work they do at Woodlands Junior School. They have been put together for their students to help them with their revision. Included are some sample questions taken from past Key Stage 2 SATs papers, as well as a whole host of interactive tests/quizzes.

Booster maths games for children to look at the major topics.

Below is a link to a great game to help children learn the Year 5/6 spellings words

The following link is to a website that if full of maths activities:





In our History lessons we will be learning about World War Two


                    Our first science unit is  electricity                                We are reading and exploring the novel, Goodnight Mr Tom.


                                                                                                 Our art topic is all LS Lowry, a famous artist.

Live lessons

We might not be able to go out on trips at the moment so some of the world’s most famous museums have created virtual tours. Explore places we have never been before from the comfort of your own home. Make sure you visit the pyramids as this is one of our history topics. Click on the following link: Virtual tours


We have access to Yumu to help continue our musical journey. To access Yumu at home you need to login using your username and password.

Your child’s username is their first name and first letter of their surname followed by your class group (i.e. y6). Your password is music123. Once you have logged on you should change your password to your own private one. For example if your name is Fred Barker, your username would be fredby6. If you have any difficulties logging in please email


As well as the learning pack we have sent, try and encourage the children to have a go at some of the following activities. It will help children to think outside the box as well as encourage them to get some fresh air close to home.

  1. Interview a family member.

Taking the time out to learn more about the people in your family might surprise your children. Get them to dig deep and think about their questions and their responses. Save these interviews so you can read them again.

  1. Measure the area and perimeter of each room in your home.

This is a math skill everyone needs to know how to do. Bonus points if they do the windows too so they’ll know what size curtains would work!

  1. Graph the types of birds that frequent your garden or windows.

Bird watching is fascinating for everyone.  Once you’ve tracked your birds, make a graph to show how many of each kind were in your back garden during a certain period of time.

  1. Be completely silent for 60 minutes, then write about the experience.

In a world where there are so many distractions, it’s amazing what we notice when we’re silent.

  1. Write and mail a [real] letter to a friend or relative. Address the envelope yourself.

Learning to write a letter and address an envelope is important even in the age of email. The thrill of getting a letter in the mail cannot be overestimated.

  1. Build a “fable fort” out of blankets and chairs. Camp in it all day while you create stories to tell your family over dinner.

Human beings love telling stories. What’s a fable?

  1. Learn Morse Code and use it to communicate with your siblings through walls and floors.

It’s pretty fun (and clever) to use Morse Code as a way to keep messages hidden.

  1. Alphabetise the spices in your kitchen.

Think only books can be alphabetised? The cook in your family will appreciate an organised spice cabinet.

  1. Stay up late and stargaze.

When you don’t have to go to school in the morning, it can be okay to stay up late once in a while. Stretch out and watch the stars.

  1. Call a grandparent or older relative. Ask them to teach you the words to a song from their childhood days.
  2. Using household materials, build a working rain gauge, barometer, and wind vane.

Use this quiet time to tinker and consider how things are made.

  1. Determine and chart the times that different liquids require to turn solid in the freezer.
  2. Design and build puppets that perform a show about multiplication.

Thinking about things in new ways drives new learning. It’ll be fun to get puppets teaching about math, and really nothing helps kids solidify their understanding than teaching someone else.

  1. Construct a family tree.

Make this one wide-open and out of the box. Challenge your kids to create any kind of tree they want and include anyone who they consider to be family.

  1. Learn ten new big words.
  2. Draw a map of your home and neighbourhood.

In addition to be an important part of understanding how maps work, this activity helps kids define their world. Bonus tip: choose a safe place near your home on the map to meet family members in an emergency.

  1. Sit silently for 15 minutes while you write down every sound you hear. When you are done, classify the sounds (high/low pitch, high/low volume, manmade v. naturally occurring, etc.).
  2. Create a Venn Diagram that compares and contrasts two people connected to you in anyway.

Understanding that people who seem very different may have a lot of similarities shifts our perspective and creates room for kindness and understanding.

  1. Learn, practice, and perform a magic trick.

From the bendable spoon to the floating card trick, learning magic tricks takes practice. But, when magic works, it’s the best.

20 Learn, practice, and tell three new jokes.

Everyone is going to need to laugh in the coming days of social distancing.

  1. Use household materials to make and play stringed, percussion, and wind instruments.

Making instruments can be as easy as banging on a pot with a spoon,

  1. Learn to shine a pair of shoes.

Shining shoes used to be more common when people wore sneakers only to do exercise, but it’s important to take care of the things you own.

  1. Collect leaves from ten different (non-harmful) plants. Sort them by size, colour, and texture.

Go outside and find ten different leaves and then compare them!

  1. Put your favourite book, toy, and keepsake on a small table in sunlight. Draw or paint a full colour still life.

This is a great way to express your love for something. For a variation on this, try out different ways to paint the still life “like” a famous artist.

  1. Find, pick, and dissect a flower.

Think and act like a scientist when you choose a flower and carefully take apart its parts. Not sure what every part is?

  1. If you have stairs, walk up and count them. Walk down and count by twos. Walk up and count by threes. Continue through tens.

This simple math practice trick gets kids thinking about numbers and exercising!

  1. Determine the volumes of ten containers, them display them in order on your porch.

Not sure how to determine volume? Learn more about measuring volume here.

  1. Write a poem on the pavement using chalk.

Writing poetry is freeing because there aren’t a lot of rules. Or you can establish a rule and see how different people think about it. For example, write a poem about snow without using the words white or cold.

  1. Classify twenty everyday objects by shape, size, colour, height, mass, and material.

Learning how to classify and organise things is a skill that’s helpful for reading, math, science, and history. In other words–everything.

  1. Measure the length of your bed using five different nonstandard units.

My bed is 126 pieces of sea glass long, how long is yours?

  1. Call a person who speaks a language you do not. Ask them to teach you five common words or phrases.

If you can’t do this, change your tv shows to a different language and try to figure out what is happening.

  1. Create and use a secret code.

In #7, we worked with Morse Code, now make up your own code. Send people messages in code, have them figure it out, and write back!

  1. Using one type of paper (constant), build three different paper airplanes (independent variable) and test to see how far they fly (dependent variable).
  2. Set a clock three hours and seven minutes ahead. Whenever someone needs to know the time, help them figure it out by subtracting.

This is both irritating and totally fun. Maybe -3 hrs 07 min can be your new family time zone!

  1. Write down every adjective you say for one full day.

Depending on how much your child talks during the day, this might take a while.

  1. Colour in a map with everywhere you (or your family) ever visited.
  2. Write or tell a story titled “What if humans had to leave the Earth and no one remembered to turn off the last robot?”

Try using some read alouds like The Wild Robot by Peter Brown as a jumping off point.

  1. Find ten rocks smaller than a 10 pence.

Kids have the best eyes for this kind of thing. Give them each a 10p so they can compare and an old yogurt container to hold the rocks.

  1. Using paper, tape, and string, design, build, and test a device that warns you when someone opens the kitchen cabinet.

Developing ideas that can be helpful for human beings is one of the best skills we can develop in kids.  If you want to dig a little deeper, teach them about engineering design to help them plan and execute.

  1. Imagine, create, and fly a full size flag that tells the world about you.

Everyone deserves to fly their own flag. Talk to kids about symbols and give them the creative stuff they need create their own flag: markers, crayons, paper, fabric, glitter, glue.
