Welcome to week 3 of Year 6 learning!
We hope that you enjoyed the tasks that we set for you last week. Don’t forget to share your work 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:
firstname.lastname@example.org. We are pleased that we also managed to speak to a number of you on the telephone this week. Please read Mr. Roberts news story about communication here.
