YEAR 6 COVID-19 

Enjoying School at Home - Summer Term

We have started this term a lot different than we could ever have imagined but I want you all to know that you may not be in our classroom but you are definitely in our thoughts and hearts - we miss you lots and lots!  I have added some tasks for you to try whilst at home - please do not worry about it if you are finding it difficult - simple daily tasks are okay - reading, keeping a diary and 4-a-day.  Remember it is more important that you are staying safe, keeping healthy and are having as much fun as is possible - your happiness is important to us.

Please remember if you have any problems or just fancy a chat email: YEAR6COVID19@outlook.com

Week Beginning 6th July 2020

This week I will be adding some fun maths and we will continue with our book study around Roahl Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Family. There will also be some art lessons based around a topic called 'Journeys'.  Remember to try 30 minutes of PE per day and get outside and enjoy the fresh air.
