Those children who have been in school this week have some Mathletics tasks to complete today.
A NOTE ABOUT ARITHMETIC: Most children have completed all activities on Mathletics - I am reassigning a mixture of activities from early in the Year which have either not been done or you could score better on. There is enough to do one a day.
A series of activities have been assigned for you on Mathletics - these will be available Monday - Friday so do them at your own pace.
You can access these sites quickly by using the links on our Internet Based Home-Learning Page
Power Maths 6C textbook link:
Linked to each lesson in the practice books for Power Maths is a input session from the textbook
As Mr Day is in school he is still uploading above the textbook pages as part of his lesson input.
You can access these textbooks using the link you have been emailed by KS2 Admin in May and on June 1st. Here is your child's year group link:

Ongoing Spellings - All Years: this section will not change this term.
Continue to practice your personal spelling targets from your target word list:
- Make sure that you are tested to identify 5-8 target words that you can work on each week. These may include errors from previous weeks.
- Learn the words over a week using one of the strategies listed on our Spelling Strategies Page
- Regularly do a recap test of the words that you've been learning over the past few weeks - make sure you are secure in your recall of their correct spelling.
- Focus on forming your letters correctly and joining so that each letter can be easily recognised. If in doubt PRINT your letters in un-joined, lower case.
Target word lists - make sure you can READ and WRITE each of these words for your year group.
If you still have target words from earlier years work on those first.
Year 3/4 to be learnt by end of Year 4 (and secure by end of KS2)
Year 5/6 to be learnt by the end of Year 6
Resources to support your learning are available on the Spelling Strategies Page
Science and foundation subjects:
In Term 6, we are using BBC Bitesize for our science and foundation subject curriculum for Y2-6.
These sessions will not necessarily match our normal school curriculum map, but they are designed for your year group and provide consistency for the rest of the term.
Your year group link for the daily lessons is here:
You can usually access the next day's lessons from 6pm each night.
