Home Learning While Self-Isolating 


We have been back into our routines at school for a while now and it's great to have you all back!  However, we must be mindful of maintaining good routines to help protect one another from the spread of COVID.  Primarily, we will be washing our hands regularly and keeping a safe distance as much as possible.   


It's possible that you may need to self isolate for up to two weeks if either you or someone in your household is displaying any symptoms.  If this the case, then you can access some learning here so that you're not missing out whilst you are away from school.  


Below is some isolation work for English and Maths which covers a whole week of learning and is based around the topics we are learning at school.  The lessons are provided by the Oak National Academy and are relevant to our curriculum.   They have a short video, guided by a teacher, as well as some activities based around the topic being studied.  


We do not expect you to be working for six hours a day whilst you are off, but if you work your way through these lessons you will build some valuable skills during your time away.



Mr Collin 



Welcome to Year 6!


Hello and welcome to Year 6 at Thorpe Lea.  I hope that over the last few days you have started to feel settled in your new classroom and ready for the challenges ahead.  It has been a very unusual year so far with lots of unexpected changes.  I hope that this term we can get back to our normal routines as best as possible while making sure everyone is vigilant and safe. 


We have lots of exciting things planned in our curriculum and the new timetable means that we will be able to enjoy a real variety of subjects. This term we will be focusing on Ancient Greece in our history topic - we kick things of by making some Greek pottery in our DT lessons.  In science and Geography we will look at our changing world and the very relevant issue of global warming. 


Below is our subject overview for the entire year if you like to plan ahead. 


I will update this page as regularly as I can with useful information about school and our curriculum, however, if you have any questions then please do get in touch.


I look forward to getting to know you all over the coming year.

Mr Collin  



PE is on WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY.  Don't forget to come in to school in your PE kit.

Revision Guides and Useful Information

People often ask appropriate practice and revision materials for the SATs in May.  There are a lot of really good resources out there which are easily accessible. Just make sure they are up to date for the current curriculum and relevant for KS2.  Here are a few examples:

I have provided some ideas for how to help support your child at home to enable them to acquire the skills they will need here at Thorpe Lea and beyond.  I have included documents about supporting your child in reading, writing and with their speaking and listening skills. It is so important that home and school work together to help children reach their full potential so I hope this will provide few ideas about how this can be achieved.


Please let me know if you have found this useful or have any further questions.
