Year 6 Survivors homework

Year 6 Home Learning- ‘Survivors’

Next half term Year Six will be starting their new topic- Survivors. This is a science and geography topic which explores forces, earthquakes and volcanoes. For home learning, we have set a range of learning activities which your child should complete at home in order to help them with their understanding of forces, earthquakes and volcanoes as well as the opportunity to apply what they have learnt. Children can complete as many tasks as they wish to but we do recommend at least 2. For each task completed, each child will earn some time towards whole class reward time.
