Learning from Home Activities Summer 1 Week 1 WB 13/4/20

Y6 Learning from home – Summer Term, Week 1 (WB 13/4/20)

**Please let us know if you have any difficulties opening any of the attachments and we will endeavour to sort it out. You should have received a link to access the files on Y6 GDrive**

Here are some suggested activitiesfor learning at home this week.

We understand that working at homewill present different challenges for each family so we have tried to includeas much self-directed learning for the children as possible. The children donot have to complete it all and we leave it to you to gauge how much your childcan achieve. We have emailed some worksheets and presentations for some of theactivities (as well as sending you a link to the Y6 GDrive). These could be printed if you are able to but this is not essentialas you could display them on a screen and the children could work on any pieceof paper or in a notebook.

Please email the Y6 teachers at year6@lydgate-jun.sheffield.sch.uk with pictures/ documents/ presentations toshare the home learning you have been doing.

As well as the activities below, remember to read every day, practise your times tables, look at the sheet withthe links to lots of PE activities or choose something that you would like tolearn about. The most important thing is to make the learning work for you, withinyour family.

We hope that you are all keeping safe, healthy and happy. We miss you all but hope to see you soon.

PS. Year 6....Don't forget to help your family by offering to do jobs - being helpful and kind makes such a difference to everyone!
