Class Teacher: Mr Gill

If you do not have your child(s) Times Tables Rockstars login details, please email their name and class to and we will reply to you with the login details in due course.

Target work

Please look at our statement on the "General Home Learning" class page to see expectations of children during this time.

As well as the below target work, there are extra resources available to you if you want to do more. The White Rose maths links are updated every week, so more work is always available there. There are also many activities across all subjects available below under the General Home Learning Links title.

As well as the work below, could Y6 children work through set A of the CGP papers over the upcoming weeks. You are free to mark the tests after you have completed them yourself. We would love it if parents could go through the answers with the children. Though we are aware that SATS are not happening this year, the experience and level of questions will go some way to preparing for the expectations of your secondary school.

Please do not yet start Set B. We will save them for later in the year!

Please try to complete a longer piece of writing. This could be anything: a diary, an email to a friend or a story. For those looking for some inspiration, you could use the Story Starter! from Pobble365.

Please also look at this document. It lists all the year 5 and 6 English writing targets. The highlighted targets are those which have been covered this year already and you should look to include as many of these targets as possible (don't forget to re-draft!). Also, make sure that you are using the year 5/6 words where possible.
