Hello Year 6. I hope you and your family are all safe and well. I’ve put together some useful links for you to follow and some literacy activities so that you are not missing out on your learning journey. This is a great time to learn some new skills at home. It’s been lovely to see your photographs. I’m pleased to see that some of you have even been learning to cook!

Literacy

Please keep reading our class novel. I gave you some activities to go along with it which should keep you busy for a while. Other ideas you could include might be:

  • Write a letter to the author to tell her what you are doing and what you think of her book (I’m trying to find a way to contact her).
  • Write a newspaper report about the plane crash and the search for the children.
  • Find out about animals that live in the Amazon jungle. Write a booklet about them.
  • Draw/paint pictures of an animal of your choice
  • You could write in a new chapter. Maybe the children come across another child who is also lost.

Maths 

Please watch and take part in these daily maths lessons from Gareth Metcalf. They are absolutely brilliant.
