Week beginning 13th July

Well, we are now in our final full week of school.  What a very strange feeling this is.  I hope that although this has been a crazy school year so far, you have some good memories to look back on.

 

Next week is our year 6 leavers picnic.  I hope to see you all there (socially distanced of course) and I will be coming along to wish you all well.  It must have been a strange and lovely surprise to have your invites hand delivered!

 

So we have a full week of our usual learning activities - fractions for maths.  This should be revision but I've still included some of those classic maths songs we loved :) just in case you need the reminders.  For English you will be letting your creativity flow with a mix of poetry and clever word play!

 

As always, let me know if I can help with anything, either by e-mail or you can easily message me in Classdojo too.

Have a look at the PDF I’ve saved as Mrs Lennon’s classroom.  It’s the first interactive one I’ve made so hopefully it works!  Hover around different items in the classroom and you should see your cursor change. (You may need to scroll down on your page if it’s loaded quite large). 

Click on different items and you’ll be taken to different sites and challenges.  If you're on a tablet, just press random items around the room to see if they take you anywhere!

There’s lots to try throughout the week!
