YEAR 6 COVID-19 

Enjoying School at Home - Summer Term

We have started this term a lot different than we could ever have imagined but I want you all to know that you may not be in our classroom but you are definitely in our thoughts and hearts - we miss you lots and lots!  I have added some tasks for you to try whilst at home - please do not worry about it if you are finding it difficult - simple daily tasks are okay - reading, keeping a diary and 4-a-day.  Remember it is more important that you are staying safe, keeping healthy and are having as much fun as is possible - your happiness is important to us.

Please remember if you have any problems or just fancy a chat email: YEAR6COVID19@outlook.com

Week beginning: May 25th 2020

It is time for a well-deserved rest - enjoy time with your family; play games, be creative, laugh, relax; make the most of every moment and be kind to everyone including yourself.

I will not be setting any tasks over the half term however the PE and Art Challenges are still available if you want to try them.

Please make sure you send me photos of what you are doing over the holidays.

Take care of yourselves, stay safe, we miss you very much.
