During this uncertain time it is more important than ever that we stay connected. And that the children we teach are still able to have structure and learning within their days.

Please check this web page regularly for any Y6 news updates, work that I have set and for any links to websites that will support learning at home.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Brown

MARCH – UPDATE

All Y6 students should now have their Home Learning Grids and Suggested Timetables – although there are copies of these on this Y6 web page.

I have spent some time going through the expectations with your children and answered questions surrounding the work to be completed.

As a minimum students should aim to complete:

1 hour of Maths

45 minutes of Writing

30 minutes SPaG

30 minutes reading

Times table practise

Sometimes it can be a real struggle to find age-appropriate books that appeal to children as they reach upper KS2.
