Good morning Year 6!
Here's the home learning for your very last week at Christ the King - and as it is your final week, treat yourselves and just do as much or as little as you like. You deserve a rest!
How will I remember you Year 6, the class of 2020? As the class who were forced to cut short their final year at Christ the King because of Lockdown? As the children who had to show amazing resilience, motivation and maturity as you continued your learning at home away from your friends and teachers? As the year group who, despite all your hard work, didn’t get to take your SATs and show everyone how far you have come during your time at primary school? Make no mistake, all these things have been life-changing events, and this school year will go down in history as one of the most remarkable of all time.
However, when I think of you, the children of Year 6, school closure and home learning will not be the things that immediately spring to mind. What I will remember, though, is a group of lively, cheerful and vibrant characters, full of fun and brimming with enthusiasm. I don’t think there was ever a day when you didn’t make me smile - or laugh out loud come to that! You were great company, supportive of each other and fantastic ambassadors for the school.
You all deserve lots of happiness and success, and I wish you all the very best as you start high school - keep up your hard work, stay positive and, most of all, keep smiling! We will miss you all very much.

Click the picture for your RE for this week. You can decide when to do this. It would be better to do the first lesson at the start of the week (Monday/Tuesday) and the second lesson towards the end of the week (Thursday/Friday).
Our theme this week is dragons. There are some brilliant activities for you to try. I especially like the dragon tangram but there are lots of other creative activities covering many curriculum areas.
