School Closure Home Learning Year 6
We cannot believe this is the final week of school virtually. We want to wish you all a safe and happy holiday. Please keep reading and working on your times tables. Don't forget to have lots of fun too.
This week's home learning has lots of transition activities to prepare you for your next school.
We want to wish you all the best and we are missing you already. Miss Croll and Mrs Sutcliffe.
Don't forget to visit our YouTube channel on the homepage to watch the leavers' video again and again.
We cannot believe that we are now into July and that we haven't seen your lovely faces since March! We hope that you are all happy and well and we can't wait to see you all again. This week's learning theme is 'Transport'. There are some exciting science experiments for you to have a go at this week and we would love to see some photos or short videos of them. Please send them to : email@example.com.
Year 6 - Attached is a Maths Transition Calendar for you to have a go at. Each day there are a couple of different Maths questions for you to have a go at. Perhaps you would like to do these with a grown up and you can see how much they can remember to do! These will be a great help for your transition to high school.
Stay safe, we hope the sunshine returns soon!
We hope that you have been enjoying the wonderful weather this week and that you have all been safe in the sun.
This week's home-school overview is based around the theme of 'Space'. Please do not feel like you have to complete everything on the overview. You might have some of your own brilliant ideas for space themed science, writing or art activities and of course we would love to see photos of them. Please send your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For those of you who did not return to school this week: we miss you all! We cannot believe how long it is since we last saw you all and we can only imagine how much growing up some of you will have done since March. This week's learning theme is all about music. What is your favourite song? Who sings it? What genre is it? Why do you like it and how does it make you feel? There are some wonderful pieces of music for you to listen to and think about this week. Perhaps you could compose your own piece of music at home or write some new lyrics to a song you already know. We would love to see some videos of these.
Don't forget to send your video or leaver's photo message to Miss Gracie this week so that we have plenty of time to create the final video email@example.com.
Keep taking care of yourselves and your families.

Please use the half term holiday to spend a fun time with your families: explore your local area, make, bake, paint, build, read and do all of the things that you love. Of course we would love you to send in photos of the things that you have been busy getting up to. We miss you and would love to see how you have been getting on. New home-school work will be set on Friday 29th June for the following week on the class pages.
