Year 6 Home Learning

The following Year 6 tasks are designed to be completed in the children's new red home-learning books or as computer documents.  All children can work through their Ninja booklets, spelling booklets and CGP revision books. If your child has forgotten any of their login details, please email our ICT Technician Lynne Tandy on L.TANDY@HERNEJUNIOR.COM.  We are also adding content to DoodleMaths accounts.

Contacting year 6 teachers

Just2easy (your child was shown how to login to this site in year 5) is an online program whereby pupils can upload their work in their own folder and share with their teacher, as well as create their own projects using their drawing and writing activities.


Whilst we further investigate platforms for sharing pupils' work, we'd like to open up out teacher emails.  This is an optional way that parents can send over examples of the work that their child has completed over the week.  Please use the emails no more than once a week, but we would love to see what our classes have been working on and we hope this will motivate learners also.  The children are welcome to put in their own message, however we ask that the email comes from the parent for safeguarding reasons.  Any shared work may be added to our Home Learning Gallery (click here for examples that have been uploaded already)
