Hello year 6. I hope that you have all had a lovely half term and enjoyed having fun in the sunshine. We’ve been out and about again enjoying walks and playing games in the garden. This week’s learning has now been uploaded for you. Please remember to send me an email so that I can see how you are getting on with your learning and know that you are doing ok. I know that some of you may be finding the work hard, but the fact that you are trying is enough and I am proud of you! Be kind to yourself and please email me for support if you need it. I am here to help you.
I will be available during normal school hours (8.40am – 3.30pm) and will check this every working day to answer any learning related queries you may have.
To encourage a love of reading, I shall be reading ‘Awful Auntie- by David Walliams’ each week. I hope you enjoy it;it’s a great story.
Here is the home learning that has been shared this week:
Children may well be using the internet more than usual at the moment so it is a good time to remind and emphasise how to keep safe online. CEOP have produced lots of great resources which parents/carers can access on their website: www.thinkyouknow.co.uk
