English - Identify the features of an information leaflet; this will be important to create a checklist for when you create your own:

Languages - I hope you've found this useful, Spain is a popular holiday destination and even if you can pick up a few simple words or phrases, it will help to enhance your holiday experience - when we can actually go on holiday!

Helpful revision websites: 

Websites for English

Reading good quality texts at home will also help your child to develop their vocabulary as well as gaining ideas for their own writing. The most important aspect of reading is enjoyment. This website regularly updates its recommended texts for year 6 pupils and includes many excellent books which will interest your child.  


Websites for Maths

From March, a daily problem will be released by the White Rose Maths Hub in the lead up to the SATs. This can be found here:  

Lastly, maths salamanders has several Year 6 sheets (which can be printed or just viewed online) with a variety of different questions covering a mixture of topics. There is a separate sheet with the answers. This is excellent for testing you child’s ability to switch between topics.
