Morning Message -Wednesday 10th June 2020

 

Good morning Year 6, Ade-Davis here again! It has been an interesting week so far with some of you back in school and new setups to the day, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of your faces again. It always feels comforting to see or hear from you and that’s why it is so important for you all to keep uploading your work and commenting on them. Those of you in school, please don’t forget to upload the afternoon tasks on SeeSaw. Those of you at home, don’t forget to continue uploading your tasks all throughout the day.

 

Please continue to follow the guidelines set out for using Seesaw:

Please only upload one picture per subject per day. For example, on the timetable today are the subjects: Maths, Literacy,  SPaG and Science. So upload one piece from each of those subjects but also one thing about you if you have completed this.

 

Remember, if you need anything at all, you can leave a comment in the note section. We are actively looking over any messages sent.

Speak to you later in the day.

Mr. Ade-Davis
