Hi

It is the start of the Easter Holidays.  Just a few notes - please make sure you have "handed in" your work on Purple Mash to show me that it is finished and I can then mark it.  Also - if you go into Purple Mash and click on the "sharing" tab and then the "shared blogs" tab you can leave me or the rest of the class a message and we can reply.  

Keep safe

Mrs Adams

Hi

There have been a few concerns over Purple Mash.  Do not worry about completing all the Purple Mash tasks and sometimes the tasks don't work due to technical difficulties.  We are looking at setting up a blog style page on Purple Mash over the next few days which will allow us to message each other within our class.  

Over Easter - ease off the work a bit!  Set yourself some different style challenges - I am still working on my skipping - I would love to be able to skip like a boxer!  I am going to plant some seeds at the weekend - hopefully I will then get some vegetables later in the year! Enjoy the dry weather and stay safe.  Miss you all! 

Mrs Adams

Morning!  Week 2 now up and running.  

Hope you are all keeping safe and managing some work, some exercise and some fun!  I have joined Joe Wickes a few times - my legs now ache!

I have a set of quizzes which test your general knowledge!  You can ask family members or look the answers up if you are not sure.  The answers come the following day,

See how you get on!

Hi Year 6 - Mrs Adams here!

Even though we are not allowed outside too much, I hope you are enjoying the sunshine this week.  Finally, I have got to grips with Purple Mash and have set some work.  I will do my best to reply and look at the work you complete and send in.  

You also have the workbooks to use.  Don't do too much in one go - a page or two from each book at a time.  Little and often works well.

A really useful life skill is being able to type properly.  I learned many years ago how to touch type (I am definitely not an expert but I can use all my fingers!).  This is the programme I used - it is great fun - especially if you have the sound on!  I have attached the link below to Dance Mat Typing on the BBC Bitesize.

Stay safe - thinking of you all.

Please check back here on Monday for updates of work for the week.

Coming to terms with the school closure.

Hello Year 6 parents and children,

Now that the Government has signalled the closure of schools from the end of this week these pages will be updated with work and activities for children to complete during the time the school is closed. 

The children have been sent home a pack of booklets to work through during the closure.  Please contact the school about arrangements to collect yours if you are currently not attending.  

You can find a list of useful websites below on this page and it has also been uploaded onto the school closure - general information page. This could help you extend your child's learning further.

As well as the work provided we expect you to still be using Times Tables Rockstars to help your child practice their multiplication skills and to be maintaining regular reading at home. This could be a good opportunity for your child to  practice their reading skills and grow in confidence in their ability.

Thank you

The Year 6 Team
