Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Summer Holiday Activities!

June 2020

 

Over the next 6 weeks, this page will have new things added regularly to keep your brains busy! We want to ensure that you are ready for Year 7; therefore some activities to consolidate knowledge from this year will appear. Now we won't be able to cover it all but we will try and get lots of the important things in that you will need for secondary school! Work will be set for grammar, reading, spelling, writing and maths but you don't have to do it all. It is important to remember that all we ask of you is that you have a go and that you try your best. 

A big well done to all the children who have been online, completing the various activities that we have put on this class page. Remember, if you have completed work that you would like us to see, then ask an adult to take a picture and email it over to school so we can see! 

 

If you are struggling with anything that has been loaded onto the class page, then please do call or email school and let us know. The ladies in the office will then let your teacher know and they will get back to you with some help.

 

Stay safe year 6!

 

Mrs Faulkner, Miss Thomas, Mrs Josephs and Mr Theay.

 

Below is where you will find relevant information for Willow and Sycamore. This page includes SATs revision, homework and research pages for our current topics.
