PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM FOR WORKSHEETS
Dear year 6,
Good morning year 6 and welcome to the last week of home learning!
We are sad not to be spending our last week together but have decided to include a range of fun activities this week so we can all enjoy the week, even if we are apart. It is up to you how you spread these across the week and many of them you can get family members involved with if you choose. For this reason, we have decided not to do daily activities but to include them all in one document and you can complete them as you please. Some of these activities are really important for helping you to get ready for secondary school and some of them are just for fun. There are 11 activities- that works out at 2 per day and one bonus activity to complete on a good day!
We hope you are all keeping well and behaving yourselves at home. Please remember to keep up your activity levels to keep your body fit and read every day to keep your brain fit too. It all will make a difference when you get to secondary school.
Keep an eye out on the school website this week as we may be uploading some videos for you, particularly on Friday. We will also be calling you again this week- please call us back if you do not make it to the phone as this will be our last phone call and we are keen to speak to all of you individually.
Remember, Miss Brooks will be hosting an assembly for you all to return and say goodbye one evening once we are allowed to. You will receive information about it when government guidelines allow us to make plans.
We miss you and are so proud of all of your achievements this year. You have done phenomenally well and have held up under exceptional conditions. We have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you and it is a shame that our year together was cut short but have faith that all of you will be a credit to your secondary schools. Please keep in touch and keep us updated of your progress. Look out for further updates to the year 6 page on the website this week.
Miss Coombs and Mrs Hunt
All homework for the Week Commencing 13th July is listed below for each day as an attachment.
Stuck for ideas on supporting your children with spellings? Have a look at the ideas and apps that are recommended by Hertfordshire specialist teachers in the PDF titled “Supporting your child with spellings”. Children of NHS workers can also access free accounts on the TTRS (Touch Type Read and Spell) program during school closure. This is a dyslexia friendly touch typing program that simultaneously overlearns spellings (only uses real words) and gradually introduces typing short sentences. You would need to contact them directly to organise this. (BBC do their own touch typing programme which is free https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf2f9j6/articles/z3c6tfr but this is not linked with spellings.)
