A little message from the Year 6 team...
We just wanted to say that we hope everyone is still staying safe. Although we encourage English and Maths tasks daily, we also want to emphasise the importance of using this time to develop life and social skills such as baking, gardening and helping with chores around the house. Lastly, we hope to see you back in school soon and look forward to hearing about what you have learnt. Remember, if you need any support with learning or would like to send us any videos of the learning that is taking place, use the emails provided on the year group page.
Don't forget to check out the curriculum pages to find more learning ideas. Go onto the Computing curriculum page to find out more information on Gooseberry Planet (an online platform for games and quizzes based on online safety).
Welcome Back to Summer 2

In English our text is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.
Trading Card Example
We will be learning about the 'Day of the Dead' after watching 'Coco'. Checking out Mexican artist Frieda Kahlo also looking at Maya / Aztec patterns and making mirror art. Mapping Mayan civilisations, making timelines and comparing Mayan Myths and Legends with those of the Greek.
This term our maths will be focused around revising, problem-solving and real-life investigations.
You could cost a trip to Mexico for you and your family, schedule day trips, check out the temperature and the best month to go. Work out exchange rates and costings for a hire car.
In English Percy Jackson has 10 days to get from New York to Los Angeles and back again, he can't use air travel. Is this possible? Use the internet to timetable the trip for Percy and his friends using buses and trains. How much would the trip cost? How long would it take?
