Dear Year 6,


Well done for working so hard over the last two weeks! We know it can’t have been easy and a new routine is hard to get used to but you have done it and we are so proud of you.  We are missing you all so much!

We hope you manage to have a wonderful Easter break with your family. Sadly,  we are still are unable to go out, see friends or do some of the things you would usually do but it’s a great opportunity to try new things and spend some quality time with loved ones. Here are some ideas for you over the Easter break:


  1. Decorate a hard-boiled egg (to reflect Easter) or make an Easter bonnet.
  2. Learn how to do a chore (hoover, dust/polish, dry the dishes, lay the table etc)
  3. Learn how to cook a meal with an adult.
  4. Learn to play a new board game. Try chess!
  5. Learn to play a card game. 
  6. Learn a new skill that you could not do before e.g learn how to whistle with your fingers, learn how to do cross stitch, learn how to sew a button on!
  7. Sow a seed in soil, put it on the window sill, water it and watch it grow. 
  8. Read a book that you love.

Remember, you can email us on the email address on the class page if you need us for anything.


Word of the day: jubilant

Positive thought: We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit



Once again, have a wonderful Easter to all our families in Year 6, keep on listening to the Government advice, stay indoors, protect the NHS and save lives!

Science Lesson - week beginning 30.3.20

Please read through the powerpoint on classification below and then complete the activity sheets.  (The sheets with three stars are more challenging than the sheets with one star.) We have also attached an example to help you if you get stuck.  If you can't print the sheets off, don't worry. You can draw your boxes on a piece of paper.
