Friday 3rd July 

Hope everyone working from home are fine and have enjoyed the work set this week.
We would particularly like to see examples of the art you did from the Art and Artists topic this week.

Next week is themed around 'Games' with a particular focus on traditional board and card games - so get those family games out if it is wet this weekend. 

Mrs Stray and Mr Crick will hold just ONE TEAMS meeting each, this week.
These meetings, again, primarily are for those children working from home who want extra help with any of the home learning work that has been set.
Mrs Stray will hold her meeting on Wednesday 8th July at 2:30 p.m. and Mr Crick on Thursday 9th July at 2:30 p.m.

Home Learning activities continue to be set for those of you at home and, as closely as we are able, they will match what is being taught in school. For maths, these continue to cover the areas of maths you will encounter when you start secondary school - so you are hopefully keeping these fresh in your mind as you complete them each day.

There are additional links provided for a variety of activities on the Home Learning Tab of the School Home Page of the website. 

Please also try to keep up with doing daily reading.

Mrs Stray can still be contacted at: 6HS@st-john.lincs.sch.uk and Mr Crick at 6NC@st-john.lincs.sch.uk

Do not hesitate to drop us an e-mail if you have any questions. We will endeavour to reply as quickly as we can around a near normal school day again now.

REMEMBER: do send us emails about how you are getting on on pictures of the work you do.

All the best

Mrs Stray and Mr Crick
