WEEK BEGINNING 25/5/20
As it is half term this week, we have another project for you to complete over the week.
You may not be getting out and about as much as normal so why not use this opportunity to stop, take stock and appreciate the small things. If you have access to a phone/camera why not create a photo diary. If not draw a picture a day to capture the highlights. Photograph things in your day that have brought you joy no matter how small. That way, if you’re having a moment of boredom or feeling blue, you can look at the pictures and reflect on the things that make you happy. Have a look at the document below for some tips for taking the best photos. We can't wait to see your photo diaries.
Creative Quarter Challenges
Keep an eye on the Creative Quarter page ( https://www.haydn.nottingham.sch.uk/creative-quarter/ ) on our website for weekly art challenges that you can all get involved in, inspiring websites and links.
This week's challenge is to create your own transient art.
This week would have been SATs week. This week's work is below as well as a fun SATs test! We hope you are all well; you are all doing a brilliant job with your home learning and we are very proud of you. We hope to see you all soon.
The Year 6 Team
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you are well. It has been brilliant to speak with you or hear from you and the children this week and during the time we have been off school. We just want to say you are doing a brilliant job of supporting your child/ children and we can't tell you how much we appreciate that support. We understand how difficult it is adjusting at this unprecedented time and how hard it is if you are now trying to work as well, whether it be at home, or you are a key worker or have several children. Please ask the children to do what they can, particularly the maths and literacy and encourage lots of reading. As long as you are well, staying safe and doing some exercise that is the most important thing. If there is anything we can do to further support you, please do not hesitate to contact school and one of our year 6 team will endeavour to help.
Mrs Evans, Miss Harley, Miss Chambers, Ms Chadwick and Miss Wilkinson

Home Learning Pack
Here is another resource to use for ideas if you want to supplement the class home learning packs.
WEEK BEGINNING 30th MARCH 2020
Hello 6E, I hope you are all well and managing to enjoy the sunshine and complete some of the tasks set for you. We have put together a timetable for week 2 which is attached along with some more ideas for keeping active.
Don't forget to email any pictures of work you are doing to firstname.lastname@example.org
As the school is to be closed for the foreseeable future, we have prepared a Learning Pack for you to use with your child at home. We would suggest that children thrive on some structure and routine in their day and we have created a daily plan for Literacy, Maths, Topic and Well-being that you can build into your day. Having some structure to their day, will really help your child and should help you too if you need to spend time working from home. It is vitally important that your children stay active and keep learning. We will upload new work weekly and all documents will be accessible from this page.
Please note the arithmetic practice on Mathsframe is the game further down the page, which doesn't need a log in and is free for all to access
