Hello Year 6!

Thank you so much for continuing to work so hard under such difficult circumstances. We are all really proud of you. Thank you for sending in pictures of your home learning - please keep it coming! You are very welcome to send in pictures of any additional work you do at home such as baking, cooking or any art and craft. Also, if you could share pictures of interesting walks you do with your family that would be lovely - we love to se what you've been up to!

This week, we would like you to attempt the Maths and Literacy activities each morning. For the other subjects, try the RE on Monday, Art on Tuesday, History on Wednesday, ICT on Thursday and Science on Friday.

If you need any help, or if you want to send in your completed work including photos, please send them to your class email which will be checked daily y6@king-pri.lancs.sch.uk       

Don't forget, packs of work are available from school if you prefer to use paper copies. We can also supply you with paper and pencils - just ask.

If you have left your spelling files at school, these will also  be available for you to collect.

Have fun and stay safe everyone,

Mrs Kelly and Mrs Room
