Good day Year 6! Hope you all have had a good week? Even through these uncertain times, it was lovely to celebrate VE day on Friday 8th May and pay our sincere respects to those that fought so gallantly to preserve the freedom that we have today. How did you celebrate VE day? For this week, we are going to present English and Maths tasks slightly differently. Lessons in English and Maths will be presented either through the National Oaks Academy website or BBC Bitesize – using their online lessons. There will be some English and Maths activities that you will still be able to access from here (see below). Aside from that, we would like to know how you are all doing. What have you all been up to? Drop us an email. Take care, keep safe, keep smiling 🙂

It’s great to see that some of you are enjoying reading the David Macphail text My Gran is a Werewolf.
For spellings this week, read through each sentence and identify the word which has been spelt incorrectly and then correct it.
