Year 6 Home Learning Activities in the event of school closure
PLEASE LOGIN USING YOUR CHILD'S HWB ACCOUNT NOT YOUR OWN
In Year 6 at Lakeside Primary we will be covering numerous, engaging topics. We are excited to be teaching your children this year and hope that all of our pupils have a happy and successful Year 6!
Being a prefect is an extremely important role at Lakeside, as pupils are expected to be excellent role models for younger children in the school. It is important that all prefects wear their badges every day and take their roles seriously.
During the summer term, children are given the chance to visit the activity centre at Stackpole to further develop their team building skills and independence.
To conclude a highly successful year in Lakeside Primary, they will celebrate and share their many talents in the Leavers' Concert.

Homework will not necessarily be set each week, it will be set when we feel consolidation of a skill is needed or when a home task is required for our topic. Please remember that not all homework needs to be printed out! As long as you can see the activity online, you may write your answers on paper. Paper is available from your classroom should you require it. Alternatively, children who still wish to print a hard copy may do this from school. Thank you to all of the Year 6 parents for your support with homework activities. This is such an important year for the children, and we know how busy everyone is.
In Year 6 we subscribe to a weekly publication called First News. It is an excellent newspaper that has many interesting articles about current world events, written in a child friendly way. The children have regular opportunities to read these newspapers as part of our Guided Group Reading sessions (GGR). However if you are interested in subscribing to the newspaper at home, please click on the following link' https://subscribe.firstnews.co.uk/?utm_source=neutral-homepage&utm_medium=topnav&utm_campaign=neutral-homepage
We continue to teach and use 'Alan Peat' sentences in Year 6, so if your child enjoys writing at home, please could you encourage your children to include them in their work. These top tips for sentence writing will really help you improve your writing skills. Click here, or find the link at the bottom of the page.
