Milton Park Primary School is now closed to all pupils for the foreseeable future. We remain open to provide childcare from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Friday for children who are identified as vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. For all updates and children's learning refer to our corona virus page.
Milton Park Team
Hello and welcome to the Year 6 learning and information page.
We hope that you are all staying safe and well at home.
Finishing the term happened so quickly and was a shock for us all. During the time we are away from school, maintaining your learning is really important.
Please see below a suggested timetable which may help you with structuring your home learning. Of course, this is a suggestion and is based on the normal Year 6 timetable but feel free to amend it to suit your own routines.
Don’t forget that you have access to Discovery Education, Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots. Your user name and passwords are in the back of your reading records so keep practising!
Should you have any questions, please contact us via email@example.com. We’d love to hear from you – not just about school work. Send us a message or a photo showing us what you have been up to.
Don’t forget to ask your parents to check out the school’s Facebook page which contains lots of information and ideas of things to do. You might even spot one of us reading the evening story!
Take care and stay safe.
Mrs Perry, Mr Gibbs, Miss Williams and Mrs Howarth
We're very excited to be able to announce that our year 6 blog will go live on Friday 3rd April. A completely secure, manged and safe way to chat socially. All the information you need about how to use it can be found in the PDF document below. We can't wait to hear from you all.
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 (https://www.worldbookday.com) 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.
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!
