Week beginning 22nd June

Well, I'm writing this whilst listening to thunder storms, even though only a few minutes ago the sun was shining!  There's even been local flooding!  Communities are once again flocking together to support those that are affected....I hope you are all safe and well where you are.  

 

In fact it has been yet another incredibly historic week.  For those of you watching the news, there are still continual updates about Covid-19 - but there are of course protests across the world, in support of Black Lives Matter.  I have included some work this week to help explain why the peaceful protests are happening as it can get very confusing. 

 

It is also National Sports Week - So as well as the usual PE lessons, you will find different activity packs under the timetable, such as creating your own family sports day and competitions to enter - together with a helpful guide for your parents/carers.

 

This week I have again included powerpoints for English and Maths that are like the ones you would see in class.  I have added some work to maths this week that you may only have touched on at school (angles) - so please make sure you get in contact if you need further support.

 

Please remember, when looking at the maths slides, you need to be in the "Slideshow" format to ensure you do not see the answers too soon.  Instructions are on slide 2 each day as a reminder.

Remember, I am always here to help: nlennon@sawley-jun.derbyshire.sch.uk
