Year 6

Happy Easter!

A massive well done to everyone for the way you have adapted and managed our first two weeks of Virtual School! We have seen you producing masses of really good work, having a go at some new websites and ideas and generally keeping those amazing brains ticking over nicely!

It’s been really good to catch up with lots of you on the phone and we have enjoyed receiving daily emails with work and news on. Over the Easter holiday, we may not be checking our emails quite as regularly as normal so you may not get a response to emails you send but, after the break, we will be back and responding to all of you.

In these unusual times, we know that many of you have now settled into a kind of school timetable and, to help you keep some routine over the holidays, Mr Payne will be sending a parentmail with some daily ideas of fun Easter tasks you can do. If it’s easier to stick to the school routine, please do and remember you can use any of the websites and ideas we have already suggested as well as using other educational websites for ideas. You could keep writing our story or do some extra RE. Don’t forget about our TTRockstars battle with Year 5 – we need to keep going on that!

You need to do what suits you and your family so, no pressure but, a little learning goes a long way to keeping us calm and focused!

Also remember to get some exercise – you can use Fitness with Finnigan or find Joe Wicks but make sure you keep your body moving whether you are indoors or out in your garden.

We will be back to Virtual School on Monday 20th April so look out for your 9am email – we have some exciting new ideas coming up so don’t forget to be ready to return to school and keep up with your learning. We’re looking forward to catching up with you all again in that week on the phone.

It’s a little different but all of us at St. James’ wish you a very happy Easter and pray that you may be able to find some blessings to be thankful for at this time. Together, we will get through this.

He is risen! | Jesus is alive, Bible, Matthew 28

Keep calm, be kind and keep washing those hands!
