Year 6 Home Learning

YEAR 6 - Mr Bryson's Class

Dear Parents, Carers and Year 6 Pupils,

As we are aware, over the course of the next five days we will be learning from home.

The aims of the work over the next five days will be to:

  • Ensure we continue developing our knowledge and skills in key areas
  • Maintain the positive habits we are developing in preparing for secondary school. 

As well as making use of our email system, we will post daily English, Maths and Afternoon work in the grids below with direct links to resources. The children can let us know how they get on through email.

We appreciate that this approach to learning may take some adjusting to, so please do not worry if you are unsure about an activity - let us know via email and we will do what we can to help.

As well as the structured work in the grids below, we have included some links to the Espresso Education website  to give the children freedom to explore areas of interest if they wish - they can also let us know the areas of learning that they are enjoying most.

We hope you and the children find this page useful,

Thank you again,

The Year 6 Team

Science - Researching Habitats and classify living things

Please use the activity sheet and your best research skills (remember to inform an adult of the websites that you visit) to look at a number of habitats that can be found around the world. See how many animals you can find that live in these habitats and classify them into the correct groups using your knowledge and skills from earlier in the week. For extra marks, you could use wikipedia for find the binomial names (Using Carl Linnaeus' system) for your chosen living things.

See if you can research more than one habitat and compare your findings.

As an extra challenge you could have a go at creating your own classification key to organise some of the living things from your research.
