Afternoon Message - Wednesday 29th April 2020

 

Good afternoon year 6! I hope you have enjoyed learning today and found it challenging. I was encouraged when I took a look at the number of students who were reading on bugs club earlier today. Clearly you are taking heed to our advice. I can’t wait to read some book reviews so please send some through!

How are the writing pieces going? Don’t forget you can always take a picture of it and send it via email so we can have a read. Keep staying engaged with the learning and it would be great to hear about any extra home learning you have been doing in various areas. Speaking of which, a lovely video which Zainab Mahmood created for the Easter holiday recycling challenge was shared with me today. She clearly put a lot of time and effort into it with her family. Other students have also shared some fantastic pieces of work such as Aiste’s amazing art and Bentley’s brilliant DT piece. So take a look and enjoy using the link below.

As always, you can contact us with any questions or just to say hi, using the contact form on the Year 6 main page.

 

Well done to you for completing your lessons and we hope you have a good evening.

Morning Message - Wednesday 29th April 2020

 

Good morning Year 6, Ade-Davis here again! Hope you and all those dear to you are doing well and staying safe. Today you are going to continue writing your persuasive letter to Boris Johnson. Before you continue writing, look back over what you have already written – you might have missed something.  

Well, I finished another book this weekend, ‘Crushing’ by TD Jakes. It got me wondering how all of your reading is getting on too. I would like to reiterate what Ms. Dushku told you yesterday, in that we are able to see who is and isn’t logging on So, we aim to have a weekly celebration every Friday, where children who have read the most books on bug club will be celebrated. We will start from this week so get your reading skills into gear!

Remember, if you need anything at all, please email using the contact form on the main Year 6 page and we will try to get back to you as quick as we can!

Speak to you later in the day.

Mr. Ade-Davis
