Welcome to the Year 6 Leopards!
Meet the Teacher
Click on the link below to meet Mrs Coley and to find out about Year 6.
My name is Mrs Coley and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 6 Leopards this year. Mrs Mulla will also be supporting us in Year 6. At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.
If your child is unable to attend school, due to them isolating or shielding, they are expected to continue their learning at home. Each week, links will be given to lessons that your child is to complete at home in their Home Learning Book, which can be collected from the school office. These lessons will follow the learning that is taking place in school, so it is very important that they keep up to date with the activities below, so that your child is ready to continue their learning in school, as soon as it is safe to do so.
Complete the five lessons about the book 'Holes'. Five Lessons
Please also try to complete at least one lesson on Reading Plus each day. You child will find their personal log in at the back of their Homework Book.
Below are five lessons to complete, which focus on multiplication and division methods.
Please also log into TTRockstars and complete at least 15 minutes of Times Table practise each day. You child will find their personal log in at the back of their Homework Book. The aim is for your child to be fluent with their times tables up to 12 x 12, with the corresponding division facts.
Please log into Purple Mash each day to complete an activity. You child will find their personal log in at the back of their Homework Book.
Also, refer to the Important Documents section of this webpage (see below) for additional resources for your child to complete/learn e.g. learning the facts and vocabulary on our Knowledge Organisers.
If you have any questions about your child's home learning, please contact me directly using the message service at the bottom of this page. I will respond to you as soon as possible by email.

This half term, we will be learning...
This half term, we will be focusing on a survival story written by Bear Grylls and exploring that genre of writing.
In maths, we will be focusing on place value up to 8 digits and calculations using all four operations. This
will be underpinned by a weekly arithmetic lesson. Please ensure that your child has secure knowledge of
times-tables up to twelve multiplied by twelve. These should be practised at home on a regular basis through Times Tables Rockstars.
As our topic for the term is ‘survival’, our geography and science units are linked to this theme.
Geography will focus on economic and environmental changes, whilst science revolves around the
adaptation of animals over time.
This half term we will be having catch up sessions, which will ensure that any gaps in children's knowledge are addressed quickly. This will enable our children to fully access the year 6 curriculum.
