Friday January 15th
Hello Year Sixes,
It has been great seeing so many of you in the morning catch up meetings. We will be continuing these every day, so make sure you are ready to log on at 10.30. It is nice to see each other during this time, and it also gives us chance to feedback on the work you are doing - looking at anything that might need another explanation, or letting you know what was really good!
Your daily work will be scheduled for 9am each day, so you can start to get on with it before the meeting.
There are four sessions for each day which should each be approximately an hour long.
English, Maths, Topic (this could be science, geography, art...) and 'self-directed study' which could be anything you think you would like to do. It might include some fitness (a walk, a bike ride, Joe Wicks' workout for example), some cooking, reading, art, doing a jigsaw, going on TT Rockstars or Read Theory, watching one of the BBC live lessons created specifically for you to learn from home, or anything else that you would enjoy doing. There are no assignments to 'turn in' for this hour, but keep a note of what you have done as we will be chatting about it in our live meetings.
We want to encourage you to keep up your independent reading - lots of you have books at home you can use for this. If you are struggling to know what to read, let us know and we can point you in the right direction. After next week, we will be introducing a daily reading session and expecting you to record this too.
You will be able to watch the SMILE assembly on a Friday too - look out for it in your Classwork. The teachers are nominating children who are at home or at school..... so it could be you!
If you have any problems, do let us know.
Mrs F, Mrs G and Mrs W xx
