A message from us...

Good morning Year 6, 

Welcome to week 2 of home learning. Before we start, we just wanted to share this poem with you, as a bit of advice about what to spend your time doing at home...

Use this time carefully, 

to have fun and learn creatively.

Don't read now because you'll have a test,

instead let books take you on a quest.

Use the time for a new skill,

let new learning be a thrill.

Don't idle the hours with wasteful things,

enjoy the fun new learning brings.

And hopefully it won't be too long,

until we're all back where we belong. 

Love from Mrs Denwood, Mrs Francis, Mrs Whiting and Mrs Carlin  xxx

 

Suggested activities

You were all sent home with lots of activities in your home learning packs and we're sure lots of you are working your way through some of them. For some of you though, the packs may seem a little overhwhelming. This week, we have put together more of a structured timetable for the week. Please remember though, you do NOT need to follow this. Use this bonus time at home to make memories with your families. Get crafty, get creative :) For those of you who would enjoy a little bit more structure, here goes:
