Good morning Year 6. We hope you have had a nice half term and been enjoying the sunshine.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back this week, albeit under strange circumstances.
Below you will see a picture of the classroom layout for your return this week. There will only be one child per desk and we will adopt a one-way system within the classroom. We will explain all of this to you when you arrive in school so don't worry. We are looking forward to having you back in school for your last term and will do our best to make it as fun and normal as possible for you so that you can enjoy your last few weeks at Leverstock Green.
See you soon!

I hope you are all well and that you were not too restricted last week with the change in weather. Hopefully the warmer weather will soon return and you can enjoy more time outside.
Thank you to those of you who have sent work through. Remember to try and spend the time on this that you would in class. You of course have plenty of time so make sure you are working through and still carefully editing and improving your work. For the project work this week I want to see some creative ways to display this. I look forward to seeing what you can come up with.
If you have any questions you can of course contact me via the class email.
Stay safe and look after each other.
Above you will see a timetable for this week. This is just to give you ideas for some activities while at home, including your big write task linked to our Spiderwick Field Guide topic. Also, please be aware that the BBC have launched a home schooling version of 'Bitesize' which you may wish to access.
My message to you is this. Don't stress about your schoolwork. This is a completely new scenario for everyone and we are all trying our best to find ways to cope and deal with certain situations life has thrown at us. Whenever you return to school you will get back on track and we are all here to support you. You won't suddenly forget all the fantastic learning you have done overnight so use this time to keep your brain active. The most important thing is to look after yourselves and your family members, support at home however you can, appreciate what you have and remember to get a good daily dose of laughter.
Stay home. Stay safe.
Hello everyone. I hope you are all staying safe and have all had a good Easter and eaten far too much chocolate...I know I have. No surprise there I hear you say.
I will be heading into school on Monday afternoon (20th) and will post a timetable for the week for you then. I want to get access to some resources I have in school to further update some activities. Some of these will change on a weekly basis and I will also alternate some subjects each week for a bit of variety. You will be able to contact me via the class email email@example.com and I will try to respond to you within 24 hours.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and remember, be kind, stay safe and we hope to see you all again soon.
Hello everyone. I hope you are all staying safe. It is a very strange time and I do miss being in school and seeing everyone. Isn't it strange to suddenly have been given the gift of time?
I hope you are filling your day with lots of activities to keep you entertained. I have included some further ideas and resources for you below and will be updating the site more after the Easter "holidays". So keep an eye out.
I have kept up with my goal of doing something active and stretching each day, which has really helped with my mental state during this time. I would encourage you all to do the same. I have also been doing lots of cooking ( and trying to not eat through my house supplies), reading and keeping my little girl entertained, which is a different challenge to the 30 of you!
Try not to stress and worry too much about getting the right amount of work done. No one really knows what this looks like and is different for everyone. Do what works for you as a family and remember to use this time and spend it with those closest to you and look after each other. Maybe you could all try something new? Now is the perfect time.
Stay safe and I hope to see you all sooner rather than later.
Wow. It seems like such a long time ago that we were all in class together...hard to believe it has only been a few days. We hope that you are all keeping safe and have plenty of activities to keep you entertained. Below you will find useful links to keep you busy during this time.
Our top tips
- Make sure you are active each day (The Body Coach is a good starting point with his 9am daily PE lessons)
- Get plenty of fresh air
- Take the time to relax and look after your mental health
- Learn to love reading - try different books and authors
- Be creative - artwork, cooking, baking...
- Secure your knowledge and understanding of the four operations in Mathematics
- Do some creative writing - we don't want you to lose those skills you've worked so hard to develop
- Spend quality time with you family
- Help with the housework!
Stay safe and we hope to see you again before the end of the school year.
