Hi Year 6!!!
I hope that you are all well and making the most of your home-learning opportunities.
I have been busy finding lots of useful websites for you to practise and revise all of the things that we have been learning about in class.
Many of these are interactive and use brief tutorials for you to use your knowledge through the playing of games.
I will be logging into Purple Mash each day to check on what you are all doing and replying to any messages that I receive - PLEASE do message me!
Remember, little and often is better than cramming it all into 1 day! Please also take the time to look after your physical and mental health. Do things that you enjoy and don't spend too much time on technology!
Set yourself up your very own fitness camp: star jumps, squats, plank, burpees, wall-sit, mountain climbers, jogging-on-the-spot (in case you can't think of any).
Read your book, bake a cake, listen to some music, doodle and take little naps.
The Body Coach is offering free PE lessons on YouTube every day at 9am - check him out!
Keep in touch - I miss you all dearly
Take care my lovelies
If you have forgotten your Purple Mash log in, get a parent to email me on my school email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a reminder of your login details.
