Year 6 - Remote Learning

Good morning Year 6, we hope you have had a lovely half term and that you have managed to relax. During our last week of half term we had the lovely experience of the poetry afternoon. We felt so proud of all of the recitals. We look forward to making our own poetry book once we are back in school. We are delighted with all of your hard work and effort during these difficult times. Hopefully, we will all be back together in the classroom very soon. We are really looking forward to seeing you all this morning, during a zoom meeting, where we will have the opportunity to catch up about our week as well as some fun spelling activities.

Miss Roberts, Miss Kelly & Mr Roberts

Times Tables:  Continue learning up to 12x12 . if you are confident with all times tables up to 12 x 12 practise your cube numbers and cubed roots. You could even set yourself addition and subtraction questions using cubed numbers (like we do at the end of our x tables test in class!)


- Spellings:  New spellings were sent home during the last week of the Autumn term. Keep practising these and play some of the games using the following link below.
