As you will know, the government announced yesterday that schools will be closed from Friday due to Covid-19 until further notice. But don’t despair, In year 6, we have been focusing on our independent learning skills and we have provided the children with work packs to keep them busy. They have been researching a variety of educational websites to keep their up their skills.

We will be setting work on purple mash and Education city. Please encourage your child to keep reading – all kinds of texts: stories, recipes, football programmes, magazines etc. There is also bug club which has a great selection of books. These are set at an appropriate level and also include questions for comprehension skills.

There is also TT rockstars which is a fantastic resource to practise maths skills and challenge friends and even teachers!

Year 6 SATs will not take place in May.

This is a great opportunity for children to learn about things that they are particularly interested in: cooking, music, history, computing, art and craft projects etc.

We will share websites with great ideas for continued learning. Keep posted…

Please bring trainers on a Wednesday for P.E. Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday.

 

Please ensure that your child is practising their timetables as they are vital to many aspects of maths in year 6.

Even though your child is in year 6, it is still extremely beneficial to listen to them read and they need to be reading everyday.
