Apart from the work I post for you, you must also do the following daily:
You also have some comprehension exercises. Do one of these every two days as well as the Grammar and punctuation test. Bring these back to school when you come back.
Joe Wicks is posting free PE lessons for children every day on his website.
This will be really good to do each day if you are stuck inside.
You will have used Fitt-in a lot at school. You can access Fitt-in at home using these e steps: you will need your parents to do this for you.

Over Easter, there will be no new work set apart from the RE work below.
New work will appear here on Monday 20th April
Answer the questions on the document below. Do this work in your books and make sure you write in sentences. Also write a prayer for all the people in the world who are suffering with the coronavirus or are part of the fight against it.
Secondly, make sure all the work from the last two weeks is dated, titled, competed, checked edited and corrected.
Most importantly, stay safe, don't irritate people at home and I hope to see you all as soon as possible.
This year is a very important year for children as they come to the end of their time at primary school. We have two main focuses in year six:
- to prepare each child for secondary school as best we can
- to get the children ready for their SATs tests in May.
Year 6 is hard but we try to make it as interesting as possible.
You can help us by making sure your child reads at home regularly. We cannot stress how important this is. The ability to read fluently and quickly is probably the most important skill your child needs.
Maths and literacy homework is attached below.
Maths is arithmetic practice. Literacy is grammar and punctuation revision.
We are going to be focusing on times tables in St Cecilia. Rapid recall of facts is essential in year 6 as it makes much of the work easier. The school has signed up to an online site so children can practise at home. Your child will have been given a username and password.
Things you need to know:
Homework will be given out on Fridays and is usually due back in the following Wednesday. Whenever possible, the homework will be posted on the class page. Occasionally, additional homework may be set.
Homework may involve researching a particular topic, practising skills learned in maths and literacy, or learning spellings and tables. It is extremely important that all homework is completed on time. If you have any questions about your homework or do not understand it you must speak to your teacher on the Monday before it should be handed in.
PE will be on Monday and one other day in the week. Please make sure you have a PE kit in school every day.
