Good day Year 6! We hope that you are all safe and have had quite a productive week. It was lovely to see some of you on Microsoft Teams during the week and we were so impressed with how you are dealing with these uncertain times with such maturity. We were also impressed by the PowerPoint quiz that Connor had emailed to us and also the Scratch Projects by Max H and Sophie – you were certainly showing your creative sides. If you have still not received your personal login details to access Microsoft Teams or you are having problems logging in, please email us. We would be more than happy to help. Below, you will see the various tasks set for your Home Learning, for this week. We would love to see more examples of the work you have been doing at home. Remember, Microsoft Teams meetings will be running from Monday to Friday from 10am to 12pm. We look forward to seeing you there. Keep safe 🙂 x

Answers have been provided so that you can check. Remember to read the questions carefully.
For spellings this week, read through each sentence and identify the word which has been spelt incorrectly and then correct it. Afterwards, look through the answer sheet and check to see if you have identified all the misspelt words correctly. If you are looking for a further challenge then have a go on the Spelling Crossword. There is also a wordsearch too.
