Home learning timetable for week 2 - beginning 30th March.
Dear parents and children.
I think I have finally managed to fix the problem with the Literacy link but it is very difficult to tell from in school where it was already working fine.
Please do email me if you are still struggling to access this.
Week 2 of home learning is upon us already and hopefully you are all settling into a daily routine now.
Week 2 carries on from Week 1 in many ways. There are daily Mathletics actvities for maths which revisit areas Year 6 have found tricky this year. Literacy and topic work continue on from last week. Please also look at the French link from Mrs Roche to keep your French practise up.
Now the teacher email is set up (Mr Crick is in school this week) please do keep in touch with questions you may have or to share things you have been doing.
