Absence from School:

IMPORTANT - If you are off school due to illness or isolation, then our school learning will be available on Google Classroom. However, we have noticed that a few parents are not part of this system, so will be unable to access the work at the moment. 

Spring 2

I cannot wait to welcome you all back to school on March 8th! I have missed you all very much and it will be brilliant to be back in our REAL classroom together. I am very proud of how well you all adapted to remote learning and the amazing work I have seen over the last few weeks. Well done!

Maths:

This next half term involves 2 new maths topics - Ratio and Algebra. These are new topics for year 6 and are very important for your transition into KS3. You might want to look at the video links below which give helpful outlines of the topic areas.

Unfortunately we are back to remote learning for a while but I am sure that we will all try our best to make the best of this new experience and be positive, engaged and inspired in our learning together.

We will meet every morning at 9am on our Year 6 Google classroom for registration. I will be teaching a live lesson for maths and English every day and have a variety of lessons scheduled each afternoon.

Maths:

This half term we will be learning all about decimals and percentages. Why not try out the links below for some games to help practice the skills you will learn and to challenge yourself?
