Year 6 Hall of Fame

 

All our home learning tasks are shared via our Seesaw app. At the beginning of each half term, the home learning challenges grid will be uploaded to Seesaw. The grid contains a range of activities and specifies the number of each type of activity (maths, writing and creativity) to be completed. Children may complete the tasks at any time but must have completed the specified number by the end of the half term. All completed work (or work in progress pictures!) can be shared via Seesaw so achievements can be celebrated. At times, teachers may ask children to bring their work in to school. The learning challenge grid for each project is shared below, as well as some examples of the fantastic work completed by the children. The 'hall of fame' gallery is updated at the end of each project to celebrate the children's achievements.

As part of the home learning for their project 'A Child's War', Year 6 pupils had the choice of many engaging home learning tasks.  They could choose to write a letter home as an evacuee; write a diary extract as Anne Frank; make a toy from the 1940s; build a miniature Anderson shelter; create a wartime recipe using rationed food products; work out how much food their family would need and how much it would cost using their rationing book; create a timeline showing major events of the Second World War and create a cipher code to decode messages.
