Happy Friday Year 6,


I hope everyone has enjoyed their week and are managing with their home learning. I have been impressed with those of you who have sent some fantastic examples of learning into the school email. Keep those pictures coming.


I have been really impressed with the St George's day challenge work and with the speed in which lots of you completed it! It seems that you have enjoyed the competition. Keep your eyes peeled for more challenges like this! Well done to Alice, Alfie, Abbey and Finley for your correct answer but Finley was the winner getting his correct answer in with exceptional speed this morning! Prize for you on return to school Finley! 


Today's home learning starts with liturgy and all the details are on today's home learning sheet. There is Friday Challenge, Guided Reading and Topic to complete. I have added the answers to yesterdays Maths as well as the full answer sheet for the St George's day challenge for you to check when you have completed it.


Enjoy the sunshine and take care,


Mrs Waring

Good Morning Year 6,


Happy St George's Day! Today is the celebration day of St George who is the patron saint of England! Usually today at school we would be having some sort of St Georges celebration or activity so home learning will be no different. To celebrate St George you have some St George's day activities to complete, including solving a St George's day mystery - the winner will be announced on our class page so get those answers in as soon as possible! 


Along with the St George's day activities, today there is English work, Maths work and RE. The details are all in the documents below, as well as Math's answers for yesterdays Maths so you can mark this. The RE sheet provides you with the scripture and questions you will need. 


Enjoy the sunshine and stay safe,


Mrs Waring

Morning Year 6,


Half way through the week! I have been impressed so far with the work I have seen. Keep up the hard work! 

Today's home learning timetable is: PE, Maths, English and Topic. Read today's instructions to find out what needs to be done. I have attached a picture of the Maths worksheet, this can be found in your home learning pack but I have shaded in the bar models for you as I don't think they have printed properly. I have also included the answers to yesterdays Maths work so that you can mark it yourself. 


Please keep sending pictures of your home learning and email if you have any questions.


Take care and stay safe,


Mrs Waring

Good Morning Year 6,


It is looking set to be a lovely sunny day so make sure that you try and get yourself outside for a little while, whether it be in your garden or a nice walk with your family. Remember to follow the rules on social distancing when doing this to ensure you keep yourself and others safe. 


Today's home learning timetable is: Handwriting, Maths, English and finishing with a science experiment. I have also included the answers for yesterday's Maths worksheet so you can check if you were on the right lines and mark it yourself. Follow the instructions in today's home learning information and I look forward to seeing the fantastic work you produce.


Take care and stay safe,


Mrs Waring

Welcome back Year 6! 


Not quite the welcome back I was hoping to give you but nevertheless, here we are again, a new term of home learning. I hope you all had a lovely Easter and managed to relax in whatever ways you have found, whether it be hobbies new or old or spending time with your family. Self distancing has been hard on us all but we are making our mark by doing something small to help that is in turn making a big difference. I hope during the Easter break you found time to think about the true meaning of Easter, the resurrection and new life of Christ and I hope that we were all able to reflect on what this means to us.


It was fantastic to see the effort that most of you were putting in last term. It is important for you to access this home learning as it is important for you to remember that this is not the end of your journey through education. You are nearly ready to begin a new journey at a new school and the work you do now will support you through this journey. I believe that you are all more than capable to take on this task and succeed and I look forward to continuing to see you efforts. 


To begin our new term, I have added today's home learning documents. Have a go, use your revision guides and please ask your grown ups to contact with any questions you may have.


It is nice to be back and beginning a new term with you,


Stay safe,


Mrs Waring
