Welcome to week 4 of the new style Year 6 learning!
Happy National Doughnut Week!!
Yes, it is National Doughnut 🍩 Week this week so expect some doughnut based activities – Yummy!!!
We hope that you enjoyed the tasks that we set for you last week. Don’t forget to share your work with your class on your class blog – we would love to see what you have produced! Each week, we will be posting examples of your work here, celebrating the best of the work that you have been producing at home. Why not have a look to see if your work made it and to celebrate the work of other children? You can also use the class blogs to contact your teacher with any questions you may have about the work. Alternatively, you can email your work to:
We are pleased that we also managed to speak to a number of you on the telephone last week and hope to catch up with some more of you this week.
This week, the Year 6 team would like to give a big shout out to Clydesdale class and Beech class for being particularly active on their class blogs. 💥 They’ve been sharing work as well as keeping in touch with each other. The teachers have been thrilled to hear from so many members of the class. Wonderful to hear!
Here are some wonderful examples of home learning from last week:

Why not have a go at the Trust-wide task for this week?
Many people who live or work in care homes are feeling very isolated because they cannot have visitors at the moment.
To help lift their spirits, why not write a letter to someone you don’t know who lives in or works as a carer in a care home near you? See the document under the Extra Activities tab named ‘We Care Trust Activity’ for details. There are also 2 letter templates you could use if you wanted.
Get involved and bring a ray a sunshine into someone’s life!
