Home Learning During Absence

Michael Thame Reading link:

If your child is absent from school, please find below a variety of resources to support home learning across the curriculum. Some of these suggest printing but most can be completed on paper. (For example, with the art shading activities, instead of printing, you can just copy and draw your own objects to shade.)

Children who have a Reading Plus login can continue to read on there.

All children have their TT Rockstars login.

Welcome to Class 14!

Our teacher is Miss Manley and our LSA is Mrs Munn. We are looking forward to a very exciting Year in Year 6, with lots of things to fit in! As a Year 6 team, we will look to challenge all children throughout the year, ensuring they are well prepared for their SATS, well in advance of their exams. We weave our learning across a range of subjects, to help embed new vocabulary and learning in different contexts. As well as our SATs, there are lots of other great things to look forward to, including our residential to Barnstondale!


Important information:

Homework: Set on Monday, due in Friday

PE: Wednesday (Gymnastics – white t-shirt, navy/plain black shorts, indoor pumps)

Games: Friday (Outdoors – black/navy leggings or tracksuit bottoms allowed)

Reading diaries should be signed a minimum of 4 x per week.


Our reading champion is Lena. It is her job to:


  • Read a selection of fiction and non-fiction books at home and in school
  • Share recommendations of books with my teachers and peers
  • Attend regular ‘Reading Champion’ meetings
  • Share her views in class and during assemblies
  • Monitor the use of the Reading Bus and promote reading whilst on this


Our Reading Champion is currently enjoying reading ‘Danny: Champion of the World’ by Roald Dahl.

We are currently reading ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo in English and ‘Grandpa’s Great Escape by David Walliams as our class ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book. We have begun to discuss dementia and how it has affected our families and friends and are looking forward to find out all of Grandpa’s WWll stories as we read!


Below is an overview of what we will be learning for the rest of this year.  Please see our curriculum pages for more detailed information about learning in the different areas of the Northcote Curriculum this year.

Miss Manley will Tweet our work regularly, so make sure you also follow our Twitter page!
