School Closure Learning Packs

Here are the Home Learning Packs for Y6.  They are in PDF format.  The learning packs have been designed so that children do not have to access a digital device although we recognise that some of the tasks and activities could be completed with the use of the device.  If your child chooses to do so that is fine with us.  We just wanted to be able to cater for all children and we are aware that not all children have a device at home. 


We appreciate that this is an extraordinary way of learning for your child.  Please adapt the acticities if you believe they are too difficult or too easy for your child.  As you are aware teachers are currently working to ensure that the children of NHS workers are look after and are also beusy preparing work for your children when the next 4 weeks are up. 


Should there be any issues with accessing the home learning packs then you can contact If there is a way of solving the problem e.g. by making a task easier / harder then do so.  Emailing the above email address should be a last resort. 


Thank you for your support.  Stay safe.

This term we are working on the topic 'Why does Shakespeare matter?'.

We will be finding out about Shakespeare using the 5 W's (who? what? where? when? why?) and presenting our information to the class.

We will also be focusing on Romeo and Juliet and creating our own modern day animations of this story.

We have PE on Friday morning with the Cardiff City Foundation.
Pupils are expected to read at home daily, and they can read books from home or school. Homework is sent home when it is helpful to support in class learning, and I would also ask that pupils practice their times tables at home.
