School work to complete at home
Hello Year 6s!
We hope that you managed to have a relaxing half term and enjoyed the lovely weather we have had recently.I know this is another strange start to the term, and we are looking forwards to seeing some of you later on in this term when it is a bit safer for us to be back at school. Meanwhile, please carry on following the weekly guides below as much as you can. We appreciate all the hard work you have done so far and have loved getting emails of all of the new crafts, creations and fun you have been having. Please do continue to email us photos - we love to see how you are getting on.
We know that sometimes the work can be tricky, especially when you are not in the classroom. If you are struggling, please do email us and we will do our best to help. Remember there are many different websites and resources available for you to help you with your learning such as:

This year, in order to help your year 6 child get ready for the work commitments they will be facing at Secondary School, there will be compulsory alternating English and Maths weekly homework. This will be sent home with the children every Monday to be completed for the following Monday.
If there are any difficulties regarding completing the homework, please let your child’s teacher know before that day, and they will endeavour to help any way they can.
If children would still like to complete a homework project based on their termly-topic (as they have done in year 3, 4 and 5), there will still be time at the end of each term to show any topic work they have researched/created/completed at home, however this will not be compulsory.
Thank you for your support regarding this,
Miss Biot and Miss Shipton
Year 6 Teachers
