I have attached your work for today as well as videos for literacy and maths. We have an exciting week of activities ahead of us!
As always, don't hesitate to send me a message on Class Dojo if you're stuck and don't forget to mark your work at the end of the day before sending it over.

Let's get to work Year 6!
Hello there Year 6!
Here we are in lockdown again! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and enjoyed your time with your families. Miss Ryan and I are so sad that we won’t be able to see you all soon however at least we are all keeping safe.
As you know, we will now be moving back to remote learning just like before and the children of key workers will be attending school. We will all be completing the same work which will be posted on here.
Below, you will find your timetable for each week starting on Monday. Every morning, you will complete your spellings, literacy and maths and in the afternoon you will complete a different lesson before your daily reading task. There is also time for an activity of your choice and for this, you will need to refer to the document stating ‘Activity Choice.’
For Thursday and Friday this week, I have posted some activities and challenges for literacy (grammar), maths and reading. Please complete ALL of the activities on each sheet and remember to go on spelling shed each morning to practise your spellings. You also have your Christmas homework which should have been completed so if you haven’t had the chance, please use this time to get that finished.
This week, I will upload all answers on Friday evening so that you can mark your work from today and tomorrow altogether. From next week however I will be uploading answers for your work at the end of each day. From Monday, I will keep the answers to the 5-a-day online as I won't always know which worksheets you have chosen to complete (if you choose to do so for your activity choice). Please do not look at these answers until you have completed your chosen worksheets.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, eSchools) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools, will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them. Schools that, for example, opt to track visitor data using Google Analytics will require “analytical” cookies to be enabled in order to do so. These third party cookies are used to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalise your experience while interacting with our Services and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we provide. We also enable schools to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow them to track visitors to and interactions with their school website.
User Embedded Content
Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one of our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools. The embedded content added by the school may require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be enabled in order to function.
