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 🙂
