It was a great delight to see so many of my year 6 pupils back last week.  We had an enjoyable week and I was very pleased to discover that much of the skills and knowledge came flooding back.  We have more maths, English, geography skills, PSHE and forest school - outdoor learning, to look forward to this week.  If you are continuing learning from home then there is more work to keep you going.  Stay safe.

Hello year 6. 

I hope you and your families are all safe and well.    I hope you received more chocolate eggs than I did.  I had to make my single egg last a week!


I have included more tasks for you to do this week.  Remember don't worry or become anxious about any of them - just try your best.  Remember to draw, colour, dance, sing and keep fit.  My thoughts are with you all.  I hope to see you all soon.  Take care everyone.  (Remember it is a stressful time for everyone so try to help out at home.)

Week 2 writing tasks - two pieces of writing to complete. The first is a narrative and the second piece is a non-chronological report.

Wk beg: 30th March 2020 All About Me 

Hello year 6.

I hope you are all feeling well and keeping safe.  This is a very strange time for everyone. 


Please try to do some work every day and don't forget to help the adults at home.


If you still have work in your book then keep going with that. Remember to do a little reading, writing, arithmetic, maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar each day. 


I have added more tasks onto the link below. 


Please don't get anxious about any task - try to do it - or ask an adult for help.  If you are really 'stuck' move on to something else.


Remember to log on to Times tables Rock Stars, Mathletics and Lexia every day.  These are key skills and will help to keep your brains 'ticking over'.


Don't forget to do some singing, dancing and art too.  If you can, take part in the Joe Wicks daily workout at 9am every morning that should get you going. 

Take care everyone.  Remember to check the website every week. 

Thinking of you all. 

Mrs Tait
