Welcome to the Summer Term!
Good morning Class 7,
It was lovely speaking to you and your parents last week. Thank you for your lovely emails too.
We can now email on Purple Mash too. You can email me or any of your friends in Class 7.
Just go on the Purple Mash website, click on tools, then click on 2email, then 2email again, then compose. The names will come up when you start typing the name in. My name is under R Styles. Hopefully speak soon.
In regards to the new work packs available can I suggest if you haven't finished pack 1 leave it now and start pack 2. It has a larger range of activities. Again I want to stress just do what you can. I know lots of you are doing the work online so a mixture of both is fine.
I have tried in the work pack to provide 3 different style maths activities, a comprehension activity, a grammar activity and a writing activity for each week up to the Summer. Maybe try to do 1/2 of each a week. Please let me know how you get on.
Have a good week, I have just updated Purple Mash and Seesaw.
Take care, Keep safe.
Good morning Class 7,
Thank you to all the parents who forwarded their email to me so I could set Seesaw accounts up. It is amazing seeing the videos and pictures so a big THANK YOU. If you haven't forwarded your email you still can.
Please also use the links below to expand your learning further.
Below are the topics we will be covering in the Summer term and I will try to link the home learning to these where I can.
