Year 6 Home Challenges

Year 6 – Home Learning

Task 1: Read daily for at least 20 minutes. Ask someone at home to check that you have understood what has happened by asking you questions. You could also ask them questions about your book too!

Task 2: Practise TT Rockstars daily for at least 20 minutes (write your login down so that it is safe).

Task 3: Write a short diary entry so that you can update the class about what you have been up to!

Task 4: Each day, complete one ’10-minute test’ per CGP book (maths, reading and SpAG).

Task 5: Complete an A4 profile for somebody you feel is a ‘modern day hero’ e.g. Greta Thunberg.

Task 6: Write a short story that includes a villain. You can base this on a character from a book or a film if it helps!

Task 7: Create yourself calculations using the digits 0-9: column addition (4 digit), column subtraction (4 digit), long multiplication (4 digit by 2 digit) and long division (4 digit by 2 digit).

Task 8: Complete an Electricity Fact File. What do you know? Include definitions, labelled diagrams and explanations as to how you think electricity works!

Task 9: Write a letter to Year 5 explaining what they should expect from Year 6 next year! Try to include the features from our Year 6 Writing Checklist.

Task 10: Draw and label a map of your local area. Use symbols and a key. Can you create questions to go with your map?


Practise the statutory spelling words daily – see if somebody in your family can test you on them!

Brain Breaks!

Each day, when you are completing your tasks, try to get up and move around every half an hour! This could be a simple walk to stretch your legs or include exercises too: star jumps, knee tucks, press ups, sit ups, tummy crunches, burpees or even the plank! Feel free to add in your own and draw diagrams of what you have been up to!

Optional Extras!

  • Cooking! Can you make something delicious? Take a photograph or draw a picture!
  • Playing games! Can you play a board game? Or even a game of hide and seek! Who was the winner?
  • Write a song! It could be a song that will help you/the class to revise?
  • Artwork! Can you complete a still life sketch of an object in your house? Try to pick something inspirational!
