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

We are still enjoying our whole class reading of 'Cogheart' we read a couple of chapters a day; the storyline has got very exciting now! This week we would like you to complete the comprehension on Chapters 4 and 5 (see Session 3 below). Please complete the word analysis, fact 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.

We would love to see some of your sketches so please post on our class blogs!
