Some things to do for the next few days.

Hello Y6,

We hope you are having a lovely holiday. The weather really is wonderful isn’t it?

We just wanted to let you know that we have muted Google Classroom until Monday 1st June.

Here are some activities you might enjoy this weekend.


Here is the link for prayers at home.



Pattern seeking question to investigate – Do all daisies have the same number of petals?

Here is this weeks Primary Science Teacher Trust  magazine for science at home.



Try to read a book during the rest of the half term holiday. Add any recommendations to the stream on the google classroom on 8th June, so that everyone can see them.

Home learning for wb 18th May

Hi Y6.

Here is your home learning for the week. Next week, it is half term, so you will be able to have a break.


This activity is from our Come and See scheme on being a witness to Jesus’ resurrection. Please look at the picture and read the passage from scripture  and then have a go at the questions. There is also a writing task to have a go at if you would like. You can upload your work to Google Classroom.

The document has uploaded sideways again (sorry!) so it might be better to print it off if you can or look at it on a tablet.

Y6 RE-2

Here is the link to the daily prayers.



Revision – relative clauses. See bbc bitesize. Complete the first two activities and add your work to the classwork section.


You have a double consonant crossword attached in google classroom. Answers are attached too.


Your reading this week is based on ‘Tell Me No Lies’ by Malorie Blackman. Complete activities 1, 2 and 3 and attach them to the classwork section.


This week, we are going to go back to the Oak Academy lessons.

We would like you to complete the five lessons on missing angles and lengths. They are numbered 1 – 5.

You should do one lesson per day and, this week, please can you add a daily comment to your private comments for the Oak Academy task to tell us how you got on. We would particularly like to know what you found tricky and how you tried to overcome this. Use a note book to write down your answers as the lesson goes on.

There is also a little quiz for you to complete. This has been put together from some of the questions you suggested before Easter. (It’s taken Mrs Clements this long to work out how to use the quiz section! Sorry!) I hope you enjoy it! There are a maximum of 12 points available. It isn’t cheating to use your knowledge organiser to check.

There will be a TTRS battle between our class and Miss Cheetham’s class from Tuesday morning until 4pm on Thursday. Lets win this one!


Here is this week’s suggested fun activities from the Primary Science Teacher Trust

This is optional.

Science Fun at Home 8 Watery science


This week we will look at a range of primary sources of evidence (evidence created at the time of the event or by people who were there) to establish what it was really like to be evacuated during the war. Lots of children from Sheffield were evacuated to safety at the start of the Second World War.

School children from different cities at risk were sent to live with foster families in the safety of the country until the war was over. Many children returned home when the threat of bombing seemed less, but this did mean that some children were evacuated many times through the duration of the war.

The children from the city experienced a totally new way of life in the country. For the people in the country, too, having so many outsiders coming into their area was a major event.

  1. Read/watch the different accounts of evacuation (see links below plus attachments on google classroom) – making a note of any positive and any negative experiences each person had. It is important to hear a few different accounts of evacuation as everybody experienced something different. Watch Mrs Campbell’s video clip, listen to the radio footage and read Derek Clifton’s interview.  There are two more attachments in google classwork too.

Mrs Campbell –

Radio footage –

2. Complete the sheet from the classwork section called ‘What was it like to be evacuated during the war?’ Then attach it to the classwork section.

There will be a fun quiz after the holiday!


Watch the top tips for secondary school. Try not to worry about secondary school. All schools are working hard to plan some transition activities for you, so that you will be ready to start in September.

Physical Activity

This week’s challenge is the ‘teddy bear challenge!’

Watch the clip and then have a go at the 10 physical activity challenges.

Home learning for wb 11th May

Hi everyone.

Here is your home learning for this week. We have a special ‘SATs paper – with a twist’ for you this week, as it would have been our SATs week! Please go to the google classroom to find your unusual SATs paper. Answers are attached there too. Good luck!

Y6 RE 11th May



We would like you to have a go at the 2019 grammar SATs paper! Remember you have a maximum of 45 minutes to complete it. Then mark it and let us know how many marks you get via google classroom – classwork. It’s just for fun and your result won’t be used for anything. The test paper is attached on google classroom.

Commas revision activity.


Your spelling activity is attached on google classroom. You need to complete sheets 1, 2 and 3. Write them in your home learning journal or print the pages.


Your reading this week is from BBC bitesize.

It is based on the book ‘The London Eye Mystery’ by Siobhan O’Dowd, which some of you may already have read. It’s really good! Listen to Oti reading sections  from the book. Then answer the three questions. Attach your work to the google classroom – classwork.

First News reading. See google classroom.


This week, we are going to use BBC Bitesize for our maths lessons.

There are three lessons on BBC Bitesize that we are going to use as we are continuing to revise fractions, ready for Y7. Don’t worry about the dates on the lessons. We are just using them a week later. Please do the lesson and let us know in Google Classroom (Classwork section) how you got on.

First lesson – Simplify Fractions.

Second lesson – Compare and Order Fractions.

Third lesson – Add and Subtract Fractions

This link is for the weekly challenge activity. Use this for one of your lessons.

There is one My Maths activity on Fractions that we have used before. Please do it again so that we can keep an eye on how you are getting on.

Finally, as we have said, it would have been your SATs week this week. We would like you to have a go at the 2019 arithmetic paper! Remember you have a maximum of 30 minutes to complete it. Then mark it and let us know how many marks you get. It’s just for fun and your result won’t be used for anything. The test paper is attached on google classroom.


Here are some fun science activities from the Primary Science Teacher Trust that you can do at home.


Y6 Memories

It’s that time of year when we ask all of you to look back at your Y6 experience – even though it’s not over yet! Take time to think back over the year. Please can you give us up to 5 highlights? These could be something you did at The Oakes; a sporting achievement; nativity; a trip; a Y6 role you have enjoyed. Next, can you give us something you are proud of? This might be something to do with your learning; sport; an award. Again, up to 5. Please write them down and post in the google classroom – classwork.

Don’t forget your photos for Mrs McLoughlin!

Physical Activity (from Mrs Pearson)

Daily mile – or more if you want to push yourselves!

I enjoy running – it keeps me fit and gets me out in the fresh air. My son has started to run with me. It’s a bit annoying as he never seems to get hot and out of breath, whereas I do! I know lots of you enjoy running and even if you don’t, you could try the next challenge by speed walking, jogging or even scooting.

The Mile Challenge: Can you measure out (approximately) a mile in your garden? 1 mile is approximately equal to 1,500m. Try running, jogging or speed walking the route. Or run for a mile up and down your street or around your local area. How long did it take you?

Home Learning for wb 4th May

Hi Y6! We hope that you are all ok. This is our 7th week at home and it is great to see that so many of you are completing your home learning.

Here are your learning tasks for the week.

Reading – you have a reading comprehension about VE Day this week, as Friday is our special VE Day Bank Holiday to celebrate 75 years since the Second World War ended in Europe. See the attachment in the classroom section. There are actually three versions of the comprehension. The first one is the easiest, the second is middle and the third is the harder one. You choose one, but I expect most of you will choose the third one. Please mark your work afterwards.

First News reading. The newspaper is attached in the classwork section.

Writing – you have a sentence uplevelling activity this week. You need to improve the original sentence by following the instructions carefully. Again, there are three versions. The first one is the easiest and the third is the hardest. You choose one. The activity is attached in the classwork section. Please attach your completed work.


We will continue to use the Oak Academy lessons this week.

They are all about fractions again. This is the order to do them in:

  • Add fractions (you may have done this one already)
  • Subtract fractions
  • Compare fractions less than 1
  • Compare fractions more than 1
  • Fraction problem solving

Remember to just do one each day and use the link on the classwork section of Google Classroom to let us know how you found them.


Oak Academy has two lessons on Evolution. The link is below.

Please do both lesson and then, when you have finished, answer to the question ‘How do fossils provide evidence for evolution?’ Please submit your answers in the classwork section of Google Classroom.

Physical Activity – You need a tennis racket (if you have one) and a ball.

Can you and a parent / carer / sibling complete the 100 volley challenge? You need to bat the ball to each other (without bouncing) 100 times! Keep your eye on the ball and remember you are working as a team!

If you don’t have a racket throw a ball against a wall and catch the ball. How many repetitions can you do? How high can you throw the ball?

Let us know if you complete the challenge!
