Year 6 Home Learning

We will continue to upload activities to this page every weekday. In addition to this you may want to have a look at the lessons being published daily on The Oak National Academy here. There are videos of teachers delivering the lessons. You may also want to have a look at the BBC Bitesize content for Year 6 here too or even on the red button on your TV.


Please note...our free access to Emile will come to an end at the end of the month so children's accounts will close.
