Welcome to the Year 6 Page!

Hello to all of our Year 6’s!

We hope that all of you have had a lovely weekend and are ready to start another week of home learning. Thank you to all of you who have continued to contact us via Seesaw - it has been wonderful to see what you have been up to.

Hopefully, you have all received a fresh new pack of at least two weeks worth of learning activities ready to start on Monday 22nd June. In English you have some exciting tasks, including a Fantastic Beasts reading comprehension and a SPAG treasure hunt. In Maths, you will be exploring pie charts, which we had not yet taught to all of you. Therefore, if you are finding this tricky or have any problems please ring the school as we are in full-time, or send us a message on Seesaw.

If you haven't yet completed the previous packs, please do not panic. The last thing we want is for you to feel under pressure and stressed so please just work through it all at your own pace.

Please find the daily breakdown for the next two weeks of learning below:
