Milton Park Primary School

Every day a learning adventure

Year 6


Hello everyone.


Our home learning will look a little different from now on as some pupils begin to return to school.


Daily activities will be as normal:

  1. Daily Reading (20 mins) - see guidance below with example questions.
  2. Daily PE – (30 mins) – see guidance below.
  3. Timestable rockstars (20 mins) -


There will be a daily English and Maths lesson from the Oak National Academy and a foundation lesson from different sources – please follow the links from the weekly plan document which will be uploaded here each week. None of these activities need to be printed and can be completed on a piece of plain or lined paper. 


Don’t forget you can upload examples of anything you do to the blog and we will respond or if you like you can share on Facebook or email it to us. Any other work, please share with us through the year group email or the blog. If the children need support/help, feel free to email us on 

  • Please note there may be a delay in our response to messages as we will be in class. We will reply as soon as we can.


Take care and stay safe.

Blogging setup guide


Reading aloud to others - children to adults and adults to children - is an important part of our daily curriculum and building this into your home learning would be hugely beneficial.


You have your school reading books with you as well as additional ‘home’ books and these are a great starting point. If, however, you're looking for other ideas, the World Book Day website ( has lots of fun ideas and creative and booky challenges that are well worth looking at. Additionally, the site also includes free audio-books (including full chapter books) that can be enjoyed by all the family. Try to read a variety of genres as well as non-fiction texts. Use the Year 6 genre challenge in the back of your reading records to help you.

How to support your child with reading

Making spelling fun!

For children in Years 5 and 6, there is a list of spellings that children are expected to know by the end of primary school. This is a mixture of high frequency words and words that children frequently misspell. A copy of the list appears below.


As a fun way of practising these spellings, crosswords or a word puzzle featuring some of the words will be published  for children - and parents - to attempt! The answers to the puzzles will be posted in the following week and new puzzles will follow.


Let us know how you get on!
