We have several important items for you to collect from school:
These items can be collected from your child's school at the following times:

WEEKLY UPDATE FROM MRS PARTINGTON
Week beginning 6th July
Hi there Rowan Class.
It's been lovely to hear from the children who have been completing their home learning. Thank you for striving to keep up with your work.
For this week's learning, please continue with the White Rose Maths lessons. As usual, links and resources are on this page and in the Google Classroom and the answers will be available on Friday.
I'd also like to to keep up your fitness and activity levels, so aim to join in with Joe Wicks (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays only) or get out for some physical activity every day. Try to get a bit puffed out for about an hour a day.
For English, follow the Oak National Academy lessons for your year group. Feel free to choose other lessons if you'd like to - no pressure. There are also resources and videos on BBC Bitesize that you might enjoy. Remember to put your work in our Google Classroom to show me what you've been doing.
I've got one more resource for you - checkout Get Epic online. I've set up our class to enable you to choose from a huge range of reading books. Our class code is lgp5346. The more you read, the more options you earn to change your avatar. Year 6 have been enjoying using the website in school and I'm hoping to see you all reading for at least 15 minutes every day. Well done Amelia - you've managed to sign in and have chosen some great books.
Take care everyone and have a happy week.
VIRTUAL SPORTS EVENT - Please see below for further information. - Enjoy and have fun.
INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
Here is the planning I would have used in school this term. I am not expecting the children to do any more school work than I set each week, but I appreciate some children might like to engage in more learning. I hope this is a useful guide.
IMPORTANT LETTER FOR PARENTS
Year 6 Children Only - Please find below a letter from TKASA
We now have a dedicated Home Learning email address that you can use to ask questions regarding your child’s learning whilst at home. Please note that this is to assist you in your home learning and not to answer specific questions like ‘What is the answer to question number 4?’ We are anticipating that you will receive a reply within 48 working hours.
The email address for this is: email@example.com
We are also setting up an ‘Achievement Wall’ to display what your child/children have been doing at home. Please use the school’s email addresses to send us information or photographs of your child’s work. Please put the words ‘ACHIEVEMENT INFORMATION’ in the subject box. We look forward to seeing what they have been up to.
Curriculum Visions is a great website where you can find hundreds of books (mainly non-fiction). To access the books, your login is west.huntspill/0001 and the password is jungle.
Look at some of the amazing things we have been doing!
We learnt to do interesting balances with our partner in our gymnastics lessons.
