As guidance, children do not need to do any more than a maximum of 1 English, 1 Maths and 1 other lesson a day. There are lots of suggestions for activities, on the Class Pages and All Year Groups - Curriculum Support and Activities Page where children can follow their own interest or parents can direct them towards interesting activities and different learning experiences.
The Learning Projects are based on the National Curriculum expectations for the key stage which your child is in. It may be that your child finds the tasks set within the Learning Project for their year group too simple. If this is the case, then we suggest that your child accesses the Learning Projects which are set for the key stage above. Equally, if the projects are too challenging, then we advise that your child accesses the projects for the key stage below.
The projects are suggestions for the children to explore their interests, using a theme that is the same across all other year groups. They can be used instead of the links we have suggested to Bitesize and Oak National Academy or to mix in with them. Your child may just want to do the Learning Project Section, which they can work with alongside siblings of different ages.
Previous projects from Spring 2 Summer 1, are now located at the bottom of the page.
Transform Trust Writing and SPaG Booklet
Transform have put together a set of writing and SPaG tasks to allow your child to consolidate their learning throughout primary school. Each day provides a writing prompt and a task for your child to complete. The SPaG tasks present a daily selection of questions to complete that represent the whole SPaG curriculum. Another lovely resource that is definitely worth looking at!
Year 6 Transition Projects (from 8th June)
The Learning Projects has created a series of lessons for children in Year 6 to complete to support their transition to secondary school. Each week, a different focus is tackled such as reflecting on primary school, how to organise yourself, making friends and becoming more independent. The projects also address ways in which to tackle the natural worries that children will have about moving on. There is usually one task to complete each day with links to extra resources if you choose to do more.
Transform Trust Year 6 Transition Booklet
Transform has put together a fabulous booklet to help your child with their transition to secondary school. A number of the tasks are based around the book, 'The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse' by Charlie Macksey. While there is a little bit of overlap with the transition projects we have been posting each week, there is more than enough extra information within the booklet to make this well worth looking at! As always, Miss Flowers and Miss Leatherland would love to see any of the work your child produces using this booklet via Class Dojo! Enjoy!
Secondary Ready Booklet
The school has been sent through the following booklet which contains activities that children may want to complete to help with their transition to secondary school. Some of the activities are designed to be completed in school, however other activities tie in with the Transition Learning Projects that are being posted each week and can be completed at home. It's definitely worth a look!
