Hello Year 6

Well here we are in week 2 and the last week before the Easter holidays.

We are missing you very much and hope you are keeping busy and staying happy while we aren’t in school.

We have updated some activities on education city for you to do although not many of you have been on to this site. Have a go as the activities are fun to do and keep up your skills.

Have you tried the White Rose Maths lessons from the website yet? These look really good and will keep you high-school-ready.

Don’t forget your revision guides – work your way through those a bit at a time.

We are trying to add different activities to the school website when we see them as there are lots of websites that you can use.

A lovely one for writing is Pobble 365 (www.pobble365.com) which gives you a picture and a story starter that you can finish. Use your imagination to write a fabulous ending for the story. We will try to find a way of sharing your story with everyone and maybe, when we get back, we can have a story session and give out prizes for our favourites.

If you need to get in touch with us or you want to share some of the things you have been doing, send us an email at year6@smallthorneprimary.org.uk.  (Scroll to the bottom of the page to see some of the fun and hard work our children are doing at home)

Stay safe and well.

We are keen to keep in touch with you and your child. We would love to hear what your child is doing at home and to see photos of your child playing games or of work completed. If you have any further questions about their home learning, please get in touch via the email address below.
