Weekly Learning 4.5.20
Hello Year 6!
I hope you are all staying safe and well.
This week, your learning is themed around 'animals' and I think there are some lovely activities!
You may also know that we celebrate VE day on Friday 8th May which is the day that marks the end of World War Two. This year, it is extra special as it is the 75th anniversary of VE day. Therefore, we would love it if you could mark it in some way. On this page you'll find lots of activities for you to choose from. If you could send pictures of what you do into school, that would be even better!
Have fun and speak soon!
