W/C 29th June 2020

Dear Year 6 Home Learners,

We hope you have had a good week and that you didn't over-heat in the glorious weather that we had last week!

Many secondary schools are getting in contact with us explaining that they are holding, or planning to hold, Zoom meetings for Year 6 students or they are phoning to speak to you. We hope you are starting to get excited about the prospect of secondary school and that all your questions are being answered. If you do have any queries however, please do contact us as we will be able to support you and help you find the answers to your questions.

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Day & Miss Goss

Whole Class Guided Reading - Cogheart

This week we would like you to complete the comprehension on Chapters 4 and 5 (see Session 3 below). Please complete the word analysisfact retrieval and inference questions in your home learning books. You can self-mark these as the answers are also below. Don't cheat! 

Topic/Science - Fossils

    

We have been learning about fossil formation in Topic and Science and have even made our own fossils using clay in school. This week we would like you to try and sketch some fossil drawings of your own. Try using light strokes and attempt different tones if you can. We would love to see some of your sketches so please post on our class blogs!
