Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and finding things to entertain yourselves.  We would love to find out what you have been doing so feel free to send us a picture to our new class email address ( and we will attempt to post the pictures on this page for all the class to see.  

In our house, Ralph and Max have been baking cupcakes, painting rainbows to go in our windows and helping us do lots of sorting and spring cleaning (as well as driving us a bit crazy!!)

Today's joke: Why did the student eat his homework?

Because his teacher said it was a 'piece of cake'!

Continue to visit this page each day this week for a piece of English, Maths and topic work.  In addition to this, you will now find 5 pieces of maths to complete by Friday 5th April on  

As ever, if you need us for anything contact us via the class email address or the admin email address.

Keep safe, Mrs Emson-Sewell, Mrs Patterson and the Year 6 Team
