Please find a pack of resources which will be sent home with all year 6 children on Friday 20th March. This will used alongside any work that I set over the run up to Easter. I have also provided your child with a set of test papers to keep all aspects of Reading, GPS and Maths ticking over. Do not feel you have to stick to the rigid timings but they are another resource available to us in a format the children are familiar with. Should you have any questions or want some support please email me on the class account and I will respond as soon as possible. I will be reachable between normal school hours and would love to see examples of what you have been up to so please send through any photos and word for me to see!
Stay positive and remember to try and enjoy this time together. You could enjoy reading together, racing to complete work as well as some physical activities and board games.

As I am aware people may like answers at different points throughout the week, I have now uploaded all answers into the Answer section for any work set for this week.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with further questions,
Class storytime - The House with Chicken Legs
I am in the process of filming myself reading a book called 'The House with Chicken Legs' by Sophie Anderson. My plan is to film myself reading each chapter and post them onto the school youtube account, social media and the webpage. The idea being that we can all share a class story still.
I have not read this book yet but it has been on my reading pile for quite some time so hopefully we can enjoy it together. I plan on gradually uploading them each week - I have only started this today so will take me a bit of time but my aim is to upload at least one for each day of the week so you can follow a chapter a day if you would like to. Please send me your thoughts and opinions on the text and if you have any recommendations for the next text, I will see if I have it to be able to read.
Stay safe and positive,
Miss Blay :)
