Class 6 – Summer Term – Home Tasks

Just a few days left until the Summer Holidays!!!

Home Learning Tasks 13th July

For our final week we would like you to continue with the lessons on BBCBitesize and to up load your work to our Class Dojo Portfolio pages. The BBC continue to support children with their learning by setting lessons for week beginning 20th July but school will be closed at this point and parents can choose whether they want their child to continue to access the service over the summer. Maintaining learning over the summer will be a benefit to the children in September.

Thank you for those that have loaded work onto Class Dojo, I have enjoyed seeing what the children have been doing. I will miss them all next year.
