Welcome to our Year 6 class page.
Well done again for an amazing effort with your home learning this week. It has been lovely to see you in the video lessons and you have completed some great work in Teams. We are really impressed with you all! Today’s (Friday’s) timetable is:
Lesson 1 9.00 Independent PE go to Teams posts for links to use
Lesson 2 9.30 Maths – Teams meeting with Mrs Gresty. Please bring paper and a pen or pencil. Follow up work to be posted on Teams after the lesson.
Lesson 3 10.55 Spellings Test Teams meeting with Mrs Gresty. Please bring paper and a pen or pencil
Lesson 4 12.30 story.
Afternoon – Independent PSHE/art lesson to be posted on Teams.
You can also finish and submit any other activities you have not had a chance to do this week. Don’t forget you can also practise your 100 words spellings at anytime. You should have your lists. There is a link below to the words if you need them and some suggested ways to practise your spellings. You should all have reading books too. We have sent parents with a log in to Oxford Owls where children can access online books to read too. You could also use the link on this page if you want to read a classic book online.
Please note we do not put all the work on Teams in one go but throughout the day so you don’t try to complete follow up work before the lesson. This means there may be a short delay between work appearing on Teams after the video lesson especially if we are dealing will any questions from children who have stayed on after the video lesson to ask a question. Be patient please and your work will be there. Likewise, afternoon work will appear on Teams in the afternoon.
Children can use the post section in Microsoft Teams if they are having any technical issues or problems with the work. Please can this be used by the children only. Use this sensibly please. Remember if someone asks the teacher a question it is important you don’t answer it with the wrong information. Also, you should not need to ask about the daily timetable as it is here and in Teams.
Your class email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org . Parents can use this email if they need to contact us.
We are happy that work is submitted in different ways on Teams depending on what is easiest for you. Word document worksheets can be typed on saved and submitted. Or sheets can be printed out, written on, photographed and submitted. Alternatively, work can be completed on paper and photographed and submitted. You can even type work on a separate word document if you prefer. We realise this will depend on the task too.
Happy learning and keep up the hard work you are doing brilliantly; we are really proud of you all. Look forward to seeing you today (Friday) at 9.30am,
Mrs Jacques and Mrs Gresty
