Hello Year 6

 

We hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend, hopefully some of you celebrated VE day with your neighbours.  

 

This week would have been SATs week! Who would have predicted this back in September when you joined Year 6? Until we closed you were all working hard in the build up to these test and we know that some of you will be disappointed not to be doing them. Well done for all the work you did do preparing yourselves for SATs, all that learning will be used and built upon when you return to school.

 

Thank you for the work we received last week, it's great to see your creativity in the different ways you are presenting your work. We enjoyed the Dino work as well as your work on fossils and evolution.

 

This week the Maths follows the same pattern as previous week keep going and remember to email us if you have any problems.

 

In English you will be pulling your research together to write a biography. In Geography and Science continue with the topics we have been covering, it really has been interesting reading your work. Finish the Art if you have not already done so. Also if you have finished Wonder write a 100 word summary. Spellings are on Spelling Shed and in the resources.

 

Have a good week and keep sending your work.

 

Take care we are missing you
