A message to Year Six (2)

A message to Year Six (2)

I said I’d announce it on 6th July, but I’m telling you now. Year Six children are all invited to a “socially distanced picnic on the pitch” from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday 9th July.

The occasion will abide by all government stipulations re social distancing- enough staff will be available- but it will at least give one last opportunity for you all to see each other and for us to see you before you leave.

We invite you to bring your own picnic (we’re not allowed currently to share food), and in the maximum sized bubbles we are allowed and that feel safe, please come and see us and see each other too.

You were always a special set of children- every member of staff who has known you has said the same. We want to tell you that face to face and to wish you well.

Punctuating speech 29.6.20

Good morning Year 6. I hope you all enjoyed some time outdoors in the lovely weather last week doing lots of fun activities. It was lovely to see a few of you when I dropped off your hoodies or when you collected them from school. I will be putting some extra English work on here for you in case you finish the work set by Mrs Machin. Today’s work is to practise speech punctuation. 😊

Please continue with the work on the Oak National Academy and have a go at the Geography, Art and Computing below.

Geography – Earlier in the year we did some locational work within Great Britain. I would like you to recap this by looking at the 3 maps:

Art – I’d like you to have a go at some sound art – in other words look at the lesson on the Tate Kids website link below and create a sound creature from the sounds you hear in the lesson:
