Year 6

Welcome to Year 6's Class Page

Mr Woodruff, Mrs Heath

Hello everyone,

 

I hope that you are all well in these testing times. Due to the enforced school closure of school, as from tomorrow your child's learning will now be done remotely. I understand how difficult and challenging this situation is, but please be assured that I will continue to be excited to teach your child and will remain committed to their educational development throughout this lockdown.

The home learning will be set via a variety of learning platforms and will be posted on this page. I will be using mainly Oak Academy for English and maths - these lessons are accompanied with a tutorial video too. I will also be using Purple Mash for our topics such as science, geography or history and I will use Linguascope for French. Our PE lessons will be to watch and participate with Joe Wicks every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (these commence on Monday, 11th January) and there will also be a music lesson on a Tuesday thanks to Mrs Adewale.

The daily lessons will be posted by 8.45am every morning. It is important that you try to do them daily as some activities on purple Mash won't be available the following day.

My intended timetable for Year 6 is:

 

Monday - Maths, English, Joe Wicks PE, history

Tuesday - Maths, English, music, geography

Wednesday - Maths, English, Joe Wicks PE, science

Thursday - Maths, English, French, art

Friday - Maths, English, Joe Wicks PE, ICT

 

I will email you all individually with the log in details for Purple Mash and Linguascope. I will email you all from the email address to send any queries or work to during this lockdown.

It is going to be a different experience for all of us but I know we will work together for the benefit of your child's education. Thanks for your continued support.

 

Take care and stay safe,

 

Mr Woodruff
