Y6 - Orangutans and Tigers

Welcome to the page for Year 6 classes!

This is the place to be if you are looking for more information about our learning in school - see the What Are We Up To attachment below.

If we are in a Covid-Lockdown, you will also find some useful links to help you carry on learning at home. Most of our learning from home is in Teams but if you have trouble with that, these resources will keep you up-to-date in that situation.

Below you will find the home learning for today. There is an English and Maths task to complete, a Guided Reading task and a History task depending on the society you have chosen. The same tasks will be posted on Teams.
