The Learning Project documents below, contain an outline of the activities your child is expected to do while at home. There are copies of worksheets that are suitable for the majority of children in Year 6. You do not need to print off the worksheets if you don't want to, you can simply answer questions in your excersise books provided. If you feel your child would not be able to access these please contact me via my email and I will recommend alternative provision.
