Home Learning Tasks WB 11-5-20

Dear Year 6,

We hope that you are all well and keeping busy (maybe planning a VE Day celebration - do send us a photo if you have done anything special). Due to the bank holiday, we are sending next week's work a little early. Please find your home learning suggestions for this week in your emails. We have really enjoyed seeing and hearing about what you have been up to. Keep up the fantastic work.

This week there are a few extras. Firstly, there is a whole school music project which involves some sewing to decorate our piano cover. Also, as it should have been SATs week, we thought that instead of you getting tested on what you have learnt, you might like to test your teachers. You can set a challenge in any area of the curriculum (or a challenge just for fun) and your teachers will have a go at completing some of them over the next few weeks. We will let you know how we get on...

Remember to get in touch if you are struggling with anything - just email us via year6@lydgate-jun.sheffield.sch.uk

Stay safe and we hope to see you all soon.

Y6 Home Learning – Summer Term, Week 5 (WB 11/5/20)


Teacher test

As it should have been SATs week this week, we thought that instead of you being tested on what you have learnt, you could test your teachers instead! If you wish to, come up with a challenge for your teachers and we will have a go at completing some of them over the coming weeks. So pick a subject, send it to year6@lydgate-jun.sheffield.sch.uk and test your teacher!
