Y6 Bubble Closure - July 2021
Unfortunately, we have had to close the Y6 bubbles and will therefore be teaching online over Microsoft Teams until the self-isolation period is over. Please see the table below for an outline of the next few days.
The projects can be accessed using the uploads and links below. Please get in touch with your child’s class teacher if you have any questions or concerns. Many of the projects may well take longer than the allotted time on our timetable. Children should feel free to continue a project.
Teachers will be available through the chat function on Microsoft Teams and via email should you or your child need to contact their teacher for help or to answer any questions. We can’t wait to see the finished projects!
Read through the PowerPoint Presentation, following the instructions on the slides and using the other resources uploaded here.
You’ve almost reached the end of your time at Clapgate Primary School!
In order to begin the transition to high school, complete the activities below. Choose just one or two to complete carefully.
We will share some of your work in our morning online lessons. We can’t wait to hear your responses to these activities.
For your maths project, you will be focusing on using statistics to present data.
This half term, we will be looking at Light. The project for the afternoon will be an opportunity for children to explore shadows and how they change due to the objects relationship to the light source.
Follow the powerpoint provided and have a go at changing the size of the shadow of the object.
If you finish this, have a look at some of the shadow puppet work later in the presentation and think about how you could design and create your own shadow puppet or story.
The Design Museum
Ever walked down the street and got some chewing gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe? We throw away tonnes of chewing gum every single day and much of it ends up stuck to the street in little splodges.
Designer Anna Bullus wanted to find a solution to the problem of gum covered, sticky streets…. so she came up with a bin especially for old gum to be placed in. When thinking of a material to make the bin from she wanted to be environmentally friendly so she used old gum as a material.
Watch Anna tell you about the ‘Gumdrop’ bin. Then have a look at the things that you’re throwing out. What goes in your bin and what do you recycle? How could you reuse some of your rubbish?
Once you have seen the video, read through this plan and think of your own project.
Y6 Home Learning Spring Term
Welcome to Year 6’s home learning page. Please see the below timetables for advice on how to structure your day if you are isolating at home. There is also a bubble closure timetable on this page. Both timetables include one reading, maths and writing lesson every weekday, with one or two other subjects, such as science or history.
You can also access further learning through the Oak National Academy: https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-6.
For further activities, including videos and games, on every area of the curriculum, please follow the link to Bitesize: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/levels/zbr9wmn
We can’t wait to see the wonderful work you complete as part of your home learning. Remember to take regular breaks and take some time to exercise each day.
All the best of luck from the whole Year 6 team. We look forward to seeing you in class again soon!

Useful Planning For Your Adults…
Below you will find some planning that will support you with learning at home.
We are currently working on fractions. This includes adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with them as well as creating equivalent fractions using our knowledge of factors and multiples.
Here is a handy website to look at the whole year 6 math curriculum and examples of the work they will be producing.
The next aspect we will be working on is decimals.
The Write Stuff
We are currently using ‘The Write Stuff’ approach in our writing lessons. This involves 3 stages of writing:
- The Initiate phase: where we gather language.
- Model stage: where the teacher models a good sentence and what it will include.
- Enable stage: Where children have a go at writing their own sentence.
Every sentence has a focus on one of the ideas below. It will either be one from each tier of the rainbow.
At home, you could look at this writing rainbow with your children and encourage them to be familiar with it and write using it.
Although science is not taught everyday, it is a core subject and it is important that everyone studies science for a minimum of two hours every week. Please follow the links below to access the medium term plan for the appropriate topic. These are the overviews of what will be taught in class, however please do not feel you need to cover every aspect of these. This is just to give you an idea of the intended coverage.
The Science subpage below will have the learning that should be completed at home for the correct term.
