Hello year six lovelies! Welcome to our fantabulous page to help you continue learning when you are at home.
On this page you will find daily resources, updated each day to help provide you with learning for that day (just like we would at school). We will move all these resources over to our 'Previous Learning' box each day - so if you miss a piece of work one day, you'll will still be able to find it!
We also have a 'Surprisingly Super Stay-at-home Suggestion' list of other things that you might want to try out at home if you're feeling bored!
Along with daily riddles and songs to get a groove on to at home, we will constantly be here!
You are all amazing and have proven that you can do anything you put your minds to. Always be resilient, responsible, respectful and KIND :)

A message to parents:
We recognise and appreciate that this will be a strange and unknown set-up for both you and the children. We appreciate that you will organise your children's days at home in the way that suits you and your family the best. We also appreciate that it is most probably largely unknown what a typical day at school looks like. For this reason, we have put together a 'typical' day timetable that would happen in school. It may be that you decide to follow the same type of structure at home to help support you and your children with a given routine. However, please note that this is just for your information, please do not feel the need to follow this timetable if it does not suit your needs. We know that you will do what is best for your family, however we will continue to post daily work and provide you with this timetable to try to help, support and ease children into a successful transition from school to home :)
