Welcome to Year 6!

Term 3

Happy New Year!

Unfortunately we are unable to all be together again, but we will be providing you with online learning here for the current school closure. Please take time to do the learning that we have provided, as well as keeping up to date with TT Rockstars, Sir Linkalot and Spag.com. If you have any queries about the work, or you need support/logins then please contact Mr Purton or Mrs Chapman. Our email addresses are below: 

purton2@hextable-primary.kent.sch.uk

Thank you for your support!

Mr Purton, Mrs Chapman and Mrs Graham. 

 

Week 2 - wb 11th January 2021

Thank you for you patience last week whilst we were getting familiar with our new app for submitting work. It is greatly appreciated by us all, as we have been learning along with you! We feel it is a great platform for us to keep in close contact with the children and parents, and we can provide quick feedback on work. 

This week, please continue with Sir Linkalot, TT Rockstars and reading alongside the learning timetable below. Please also keep active, whether that is Just Dance videos on youtube, or tuning into Joe Wicks who is back this week. The BBC are also showing learning progammes which you may want to access. 

Please only submit learning this week through Class Dojo, we are able to store all of the children's learning in one portal that way, and it is easier for us to monitor! 

Thanks again, 

Team Year 6

Week 1 - wb 4th January 2021

Below is the learning timetable for this week. Children are expected to complete all the learning that is in the timetable, and we recommend it is done on the day that it is set. There is plenty for the children to work through, and it is the same learning that they would have been doing in school. 

The work expectations are the same as we would expect from the children in school, and they should complete learning with the same level of effort. Some of the learning will be submitted on Purple Mash, and some will require photo evidence to be submitted on Class Dojo. Please make sure the activities are submitted so that we can feedback to the children on their learning. 

The children should also continue to use TT Rockstars to supplement their maths, if you require your child's login then please contact their teacher. 

Please continue spelling using Sir Linkalot, and practice the Blue Blyton and Water Wells spelling lists. Make sure you complete the quizzes and record your scores! 

We have also attached the Early Morning Starter Grid, but this is more for the children to have a recap of their learning and does not need to be submitted. The musician of the week is ABBA, so feel free to listen to their music whilst you work! 

Good luck, we look forward to seeing everything you produce this week!

  • The school day ends at 3.15pm. If you are unable to collect your child, please telephone the school office.
