Year 6

Week Starting 21 June 2020

Welcome to week 9 of Year 6 learning!

This week, you will notice that our home learning pages contain fewer Pegasus grown learning videos – you will hear fewer Pegasus teacher voices and see fewer faces.  Recently, you have learnt a lot about the changes that will be brought about by your transition to secondary school and how to cope with them.  One expectation at secondary school is that you will be able to demonstrate a high level of independence in your learning.  Therefore, this week, we would like you to develop your sense of independence by self-assessing your own learning and completing independent tasks.

But don’t worry – your teachers have not forgotten you!  The year 6 team are busy beavering away on the hoodies and yearbooks that this year’s Year 6 children will receive as a gift from the Trust as well as planning all the super-fun activities for our final week together.

You will also still have a live lesson on Wednesday:

LIVE lessons

Thank you so much to all of you who joined the LIVE science session last Wednesday.  This week, we had 106 participants which is fantastic!!  Can we get more this week? We do hope so!

We know that many more of you tried to join – we’d like to apologise for the teething problems with the new technology and thank you for your patience.  Please contact your class teacher via your class blog or email yr6@pegasusacademytrust.org outlining the nature of the problem you had logging in and hopefully we can resolve the issue so that you can join the next LIVE lesson.

Our next LIVE lesson will be at 11am on Wednesday 24th June when Ms Naughton will be having a go hosting a LIVE lesson on Science.  Please do join her to learn more about the human body.
