Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

If you find yourself having to self-isolate Year 6, please find below some activities that you can work through at home. Of course, you can still do your spelling frame, TT Rockstars and independent reading. You can also access a range of subjects through BBC Bitesize KS2. 

Here are the stunning year 6 'Manadon Memories' final homework projects on display around the school for all to enjoy.....

Look at our fantastic year 6 graffiti art displayed in the hall...

Year 6 are very proud of their WW2 cross-curricular work this week – poetry, art & history!

Our finished pieces of writing in year 6 for our 'Museum of Marvellous Fings.' We are really proud of the writing that has been produced!

Linked to our WW2 topic, Teila has proudly talked to year 6 about her Great Grandfather who survived a WW2 attack on his ship and being taken as a prisoner of war by the Germans for over 2 years! An incredible survival story! Thankyou Teila.

Year 6 created their own 'Museum of Marvellous Fings' inspired by David Walliams book in English this week. We used our personal creations to write explanation guides...

'This would have been Year 6's SAT's week so we gave them a special SATS breakfast treat!'

Year 6 have been experimenting with variables using 'Scratch' to create their own scored game. Very clever!

Year 6 have been learning about The Rise of The Nazi Party in history as part of their WW2 topic. We have had fun creating a timeline of information & events leading up to the start of World War 2, in these very effective zigzag books for display!

Year 6 had fun with 'skittles' to enrich their understanding of ration & proportion. Great learning with a yummy treat afterwards. Perfect!

Year 6 building their own Smeaton Tower models ready to put electrical circuits in, to light them up next term!

Year 6 have been learning & playing Zone Ball with Barrie in PE lessons this week...

Year 6 enjoying collaborative Victorian art

During science lessons this week, year 6 have been proving that light travels in straight lines...

This Spring, Year 6 are enjoying learning Hockey skills.....

As part of our Victorian topic, Year 6 had great fun making Victorian toys this week. We made a cup & ball, and a very clever 'Traumatrope'

Welcome back to online learning!


Following the government announcement (4.1.21) that all schools must return to online learning we unfortunately find ourselves back in the situation we were in the Spring term of last year.

Overwhelmingly, the feedback from the last time was that the way Manadon arranged our online learning was very positive and that it worked for the vast majority of our pupils. Because of this, we will be placing a block of learning at a time onto each year group page, ready for Monday. This should be completed by all children across the course of the week.

One area that arose from feedback was the wish to have some contact with class teachers and classmates. To enable this we are going to host a 20-30 minute Zoom call each week so that we can all see each other. There will not be any formal lesson teaching during this time.


If you have any immediate concerns or questions, please feel free to contact us via e-mail (see below). We will endeavour to reply as soon as possible but we are teaching the key worker children and may not get back to you straight away.


Mrs Llewellyn -

Miss York -


Best of luck and we hope to see you soon.


All of the Year 6 Team

Home Learning Week Commencing 1st March 2021...PINCH PUNCH!

Home Learning Week Commencing Monday 22nd February
Home Learning Week Commencing Monday 8th February 2021
Home Learning Week Commencing Monday 1st February 2021...PINCH PUNCH the first of the month!!
Home Learning Week Commencing Monday 25th January 2021
Home Learning Week Commencing Monday 18th January 2021
Home Learning Week Commencing 11th January

This week, the format of the planning and lessons looks slightly different, to hopefully make it easy for you on a daily basis. The weekly planning document details all of the lessons in a timetable for the week for you. All the resources/weblinks you should need will be placed in each daily starred sub-page. For those children requiring more video-based learning in English and Maths, we have attached weblinks for teacher videos from The Oak National Academy for you to work through. The Oak Academy videos may not be exactly the same as what we are delivering in class, but they are definitely the same objective with the same learning intention. You can decide which resource works best for you. There may also be video-based learning for the topic subjects too, if we have been able to match the objective.

In Monday's star, you will continue to find Mrs Ryder's Assembly, so please take the time to watch it. 

Zoom Meetings start this week too for 6L and 6Y and will be the same day and time every week during Lockdown. 

6L - Thursday @ 2.30pm

6Y - Friday @ 12pm

Please see the appropriate daily starred sub-page for the information sheet with everything you need to know and the LINK to use.

It would be a good idea to keep all your child's home learning in a book or folder until we return so that it is all in one place. Please feel free to email photos of particular work eg. artwork, science etc. that you may wish to share with us. When we do return to normality, please make sure your child brings in their book/folder to show us and we can transfer the necessary work to their class books. Thank you. 

We hope you enjoy this week's learning - please be rest assured that we are mirroring this learning in school so consistency between home and school learning are the same. 

If you can learn at home and stay safe, please do! 

Take care, 

Mrs Llewellyn, Miss York and Mrs Hooper xxx


Weekly Planning Document for the Week Commencing 11th January

Year 6 Home Learning and School Learning

(commencing Wednesday 6th January 2021)

5th January 2021

Good Morning Year 6,

We are devastated with the announcement last night that we have to close schools once again. We will be open for key worker children and vulnerable children from today (see school email and facebook messages from last night). We will be working really hard today to ensure that you have online learning to complete at home during this time. 

For today, please look at the selection of activities listed below to complete. You may wish to keep all your home learning in a notebook, if you are unable to print it off. Stay safe - we've done this once, we can do it again! Take care and we'll see you soon! 

1. Please choose a Maths and English activity from the isolating stars below to complete.

2. Read for 20 minutes.

3. TT rockstars for 10 minutes.

4. Youtube 'Ernest Shackleton's Journey' (based on our text that we only started yesterday!!). Find a short documentary to watch.  The video clip from yesterday that we started watching, I will attach below, just in case! Make notes about this miraculous expedition. We will be continuing the letter writing for tomorrow's home learning. 

5. Yesterday, you took home your Victorian topic homework for this term (again, I will upload the letter below). Make a start on which topic you wish to research.

6. If you have access to the film 'Oliver' (it was on over Christmas), you may wish to watch it this week, as some of our home learning we will try to link to this famous Victorian film.

7. Practise hyphenated words for your spelling this week on Spelling Frame, Year 5 and 6, spelling rule number 44. 

This should keep you busy today Year 6.

Look after yourselves and we'll see you soon! 

Mrs Llewellyn, Miss York and Mrs Hooper xx
