Year 6 Home Learning Activities

Year 6 General Home Learning Activities

It is important that we all try and keep to a routine whilst we are away from school. Leanne has put together a suggested daily timetable for the Nursery children.

You can view the activities over here.
Understanding ratios is made easier when you can see some examples in front of you - perfect for online home working!

The short videos over here are a good starting point to start your learning.

Ready for your first task?

We are going to start by using ratio language. The worksheet over here will make it simple with some diagrams to help you.

You should know all about fractions from your Year 5 maths learning. Ratios and fractions have a close relationship. You can learn more over here.

The ratio symbol is key to holding this all together. We are going to complete some ratio sentences using the symbol over here.

Now it is time to calculate some ratios. There are some word problems to solve over here.

Our final ratio exercise involves using scale numbers. Don't worry - it's not as scary as it sounds! More is explained over here.

Don't worry if you get stuck on any of these. Ratios can be tough. Just watch the videos again to help you understand how ratios work.


We have a special assignment for the Burnet News Club members in Year 6. This is based on the presentation of the Covid-19 outbreak in the news.

You can find the pdf file to download and read over here.

The worksheet addresses the idea of facts about Coronavirus being reported. It will help you with strategies for analysing news.

There are some statements for you to read and then analyse. It is healthy to be sceptical of some sources that claim to be news!

The worksheet asks you to reflect on the sources, and then explain your reasoning.

Finally there is the opportunity to improve your interviewing techniques. You can speak with members of your household and get their opinion on the way in which the news around Covid-19 is presented.

Week Beginning 30 March
