By now, Year 6 should be entering the busiest time of the year, with preparation for SATs reaching its zenith, fun projects based around our summer term books Tales from the Arabian Nights’ and The Spider and the Fly, trips to look forward to, transition activities in readiness for secondary school and of course the end of school Leavers’ Assembly. This year, however, has of course proved to be very different, although hopefully some of these will still go ahead in some form or another. Look on Seesaw to find out more!

Despite the strangeness of these times, I hope that everyone is able to still find time to enjoy life. Spring has now well and truly sprung: blackbirds are busily building their nests to hatch their young, pheasants are furiously fussing over their territories and pigeons puff themselves up proudly to attract a mate. Plants have burst into fresh greenery and fields are filling up with crops. Most of us, however, are compelled to spend most of our time indoors but there are still opportunities to get out and experience the thrill of spring for ourselves. 

  

By now, parents should all have received an update on their child’s home-learning opportunities, but if you are missing these, they are available by clicking HERE.

Also recommended:

 

  • Purple Mash daily activities. Children will need to log in to access these.

     

  • Charanga music site. Logins also needed.

     

  • Reading Eggs: a subscription has been purchased, so there will be lots to enjoy here.

     

  • Audible are still providing hundreds of children’s audio-books for free.

     

  • National Academy lessons in English, Maths and various foundation subjects. These provide daily structured learning for children of all ages and are a great way to continue more formal learning.

     

  • BBC Bitesize, providing daily teaching sessions in aspects of English and Maths and another lesson in a foundation subject such as science, art or French.

     

  • some parental advice and ideas on keeping children safe when online from the NSPCC.

     

  • from CEOPS, for parents to work with their children on aspects of internet safety.

      

Y6 are also now collaborating online using Seesaw. Everyone should have had their logon details emailed to them, but if you are missing these, please let me know and I will send them via email. All the Year 6 adults are looking forward to seeing the children once again. It has been a real pleasure to have taught this class this year and we are only sorry that we have not had the opportunity to be together for the full year. However, hopefully we will all be back together very soon!
