Home Learning 1.6.20

Welcome back Year 6! We hope you had a lovely half term break and are ready to begin another week of hard work. Thank you to everyone who has sent examples of their work in, we would like to hear from more of you though so keep emailing it through to us please. We will still be on Microsoft Teams every morning from 10am-12pm to support you with any questions you have about your learning. Whether you are in school or at home you will have the same work to complete throughout the week and as before it will mostly be using Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize. We are trying to include a wide range of curriculum areas and we hope you enjoy it. Stay safe and keep in touch!
