Year 6 Home Learning 6.07.2020

Hello Year 6 and welcome back to another week of learning. Once again Mrs A-B and I, have heard some impressive stories from Mr Scott, Miss Perrett and Mr Perkins on your hard work, positivity and enthusiasm at school (to those that have attended). Even though it may seem a little different, the staff are extremely impressed with how well you have adapted and your enthusiasm towards the learning – keep it up! We are certainly looking forward to reading some of your stories from English. Remember to listen carefully and keep yourself safe. We have also been impressed by those who have attended online learning through Teams. It truly is lovely to hear your stories, particularly Kale and his cat as well as providing support. Remember you can catch us online Monday to Friday from 10am to 12pm as well as through email. Please remember to send in your amazing examples of work as we would like to showcase it on here. Have a great week everyone and remember to keep positive and smile 🙂

Year 6 Stars

Shining STARS of the Week!

Connor – for his fantastic working attitude this week across all areas of the curriculum. No matter the task, he always applies himself fully and produces work to a very high standard. Well done Connor! 

Daksh as he produced a wonderful story based around a Viking invasion between Britain and Denmark. He carefully considered all of the factual information that we have been learning about in creative curriculum and crafted this into a wonderful (and brutal) story line. In addition, he included lots of elements of his success criteria. A great example of cross-curricular writing. Well done Daksh!

Ethan for his fantastic effort and attitude towards all his work. This week his story was fantastic (if a little dark and scary for Mr Scott) and his work on his algebra was brilliant. He brings a smile to the class.

Owen for his wonderful poster on Viking longboats.  He took a conscientious approach and I am sure you would agree the outcome is wonderful !
