Hello year 6,
I hope you're enjoying the sunshine. Such a lovely day!
Well done, you are now independent learners and are able to manage the daily timetable of lessons. Additionally, you should also be able to use your initiative to further revise or even repeat lessons, if you need to. It is important for you to also reflect on your learning and think about the subjects/ topics which you have a good understanding of and those that you need to look at again. Make sure that you are using your Cgp study guides to support your learning and the websites that we have shared on the y6 pages to help you. Furthermore, you should have also finished going through each topic at least once, in your Cgp workbooks by now as well.
Don't forget to go outside and get some fresh air.
I'm going to look at seesaw now to see all the wonderful learning that has been posted. I hope you have a good evening.

Inform the king of the main events occurring in the city;
the restless inhabitants;
effect of the Ickabog tax;
lack of evidence that the ickabog even exists;
starving children in the marshlands;
