Home Learning Week beginning 20/4/20

Hello to all of our Year 6 children. We hope that you have had a good week and have been looking after yourselves and your families. We are sure that the sunshine and Easter chocolate has helped! Remember to keep active (see Mr Bradshaw's ideas for keeping fit this week in your email), keep reading and keep looking out for others (Mrs Watkinson has made some good suggestions for this in the RRS task this week). Thank you to those of you who have shared your learning with us. Please send anything that you would like to share to year6@lydgate-jun.sheffield.sch.uk (please use this email address to contact the Y6 team too).

You will have received an email with the home learning activities for week 2. Remember to only complete what you are able to: the activities are there for those of you who want them. Attached to the email are all of the resources that you will need. Please let us know if you are having any difficulties accessing them. Please see the list for this week below:
