Morning Year 6,

As we reach the end of another week I think we should take a moment to celebrate what we have achieved. You have all engaged in Zoom lessons and have managed technical glitches and difficulties brilliantly. I really enjoyed our Maths Zoom yesterday, it makes it feel a little more like normal to talk to you all and interact during your lessons... still I can't wait until we are all back but well done for making the most out of this situation and continuing to learn at home. 

As before if you have any issues please leave a comment on dojo or ask your Parents to email me. 

 

Try to stick to the timetable as best you can. If you finish a task early below the daily outline is a table with lots of extension activities and games that you could try.

Here is what I would like you to do on Friday 22nd January.

09:00 - 09:10 - Spellings - This week’s spellings will be set on Class Dojo for you to type out 5 times per spelling like you would in class, there will be a new Spelling Frame quiz for you to try.
