Year 6

Hi Year 6,

We hope you are all staying at home, keeping safe and not missing us too much in school. We are missing teaching you all and hope that we will be back to normal before long. Over the past couple of weeks it has been lovely to talk to most of you or your parents on the phone and to know that you are safe and well. If we have not managed to get in contact with you we will try again soon.

 

In the mean time we will be regularly adding links and work packs that you can complete at home below. There are also work packs in the school reception which can be collected by an adult. We can't wait to see you all again and hear about what you have all been doing. 

 

Be kind to each other on social media and look after one another.

Year 6 Additional Home Learning Links

 

White Rose Maths: visit the home-learning section of the website and try some of the Year 6 lessons. You need to watch the video and then answer the questions on the worksheets. Don’t worry about printing them out- just use your jotter to take a note of your answers. After you have finished, you can self-mark using the answers page. There are two weeks’ worth of lessons on there already and they are adding more every day!

Summer 2
 
Hi Year 6,
 
Some of you will be preparing to return to school this half term and we are really looking forward to having you back. As I am sure will know, things will be a little bit different in our classroom and in school but do not worry- all of the staff are here to help keep you happy and safe as always. For those of you who are not coming back at this time, please keep checking here for updated home learning or popping into the office to collect some (Don't forget to check out the additional learning activities at the bottom of the page too). We will also contact your parents again soon to see how you are doing! 
 
We hope you are keeping yourselves safe and well and that we get to see all of you very soon.
