Dear Year 6 children and parents
We hope you and your families continue to keep safe and well. Here are some home learning activities for those of you who are not coming in to school and to supplement the learning of those of you who are, should you wish to try them.
Do continue to keep in touch on the Year 6 email address:
This week, we are challenging you to write a non-chronological report about a fictional hybrid creature - take a look at the information about crenguins to know what to do!
This week's spellings are therefore all potentially useful for this task, and are loosely on the theme of the natural world and evolution. There are so many more words we could have included so these are just a few ideas!
hibernate / hibernation
adapt / adaptation
evolve / evolution
intelligent / intelligence
Today's word jumble is also on the same theme. Last week's was so difficult we can't even remember what it was supposed to be... This one is all about inheritance, so if you can think of words on that theme, you should be able to work out which one it is!
For Maths, there are a range of questions about area and perimeter. There are quite a few questions and some are a bit tricky, so just do what you can. We have also attached the answers so you, or someone else, can mark the ones you do or find out the answer if you are not sure.
In Geography we are going to continue looking at coasts, including coastal features and coastal erosion. This week’s activity is to watch a few video clips on BBC Bitesize and then do a short task to do with each one. The video clips are listed below and the task sheet is attached.

Until next time, take care and stay safe.
Mrs Tomlins and Mr Shammas
