Miss Gibbs loved seeing how determined the children in school were whilst completing their PE – we hope you all pushed yourselves at home too.

Thank you to those children who have already voted for our new unit text – you have until Thursday to cast your vote, if you haven’t already.

Thursday 16th April 

 

Good morning Year 6,

 

We have been enjoying reading lots of books whilst we’re at home – what books have you read since we started our home learning? Can you recommend any for us to read?

To keep yourselves entertained, you could create a ‘to be read’ or ‘to be watched’ jar.

  • Write down the names of books/films you’d like to read/watch.
  • Pull a book/film out of the jar.
  • Read the book or watch the film.

 

Have a wonderful day,

Good morning Year 6,

 

We hope you have settled back into the routine nicely and you enjoyed watching the Broken: Rock, Paper, Scissors animation for English. Can you think of a game with the same concept of rock, paper, scissors involving different objects?

 

The photos of parachutes that we have been sent look incredible – hopefully they fulfilled the brief and helped a lego figure/small toy to land safely.

Good morning Year 6,

 

We hope you had a wonderful Easter break and didn’t eat too much chocolate.

The weather has been amazing and we’ve made the most of spending time in the garden, hopefully you have too.

Although it was nice to have some time away from learning, we are excited to get back into our routine and seeing all of the lovely things you get up to across the week (we have missed this during the holidays).

We would love to see the different activities you have been up to: baking, in the garden, being creative, as well as your learning.

 

We will continue to upload chapters from Pig Heart Boy daily, keep listening to see how similar the story is to the television programme we watched. 

 

Have a wonderful first day of the Summer Term,
