Please see Google Classroom for your daily learning activities. Remember all morning work must be uploaded by 1pm to have feedback by 5pm the same day.  Your afternoon work must be uploaded by 3:30pm and feedback will be given by 12pm the next day. Please check the submitted work once it’s been returned for your feedback- you may have corrections to complete.

Google Meet

Each day there will be a ‘Google Meet’ through Google Classroom. This will be where I can meet you as part of a small group online and video chat with you. To make the groups smaller, on Google Classroom is a timetable for your Meet Up day. I appreciate there may be occasional internet issues/timing issues/microphones not working etc so you might need to be patient whilst using the new systems. If you miss your timetabled google meet you can always join another on a different day 🙂

With kindest regards,

Ms Ford

Meet the Teacher

We have created a short video outlining the curriculum expectations and key points of information, the children need to be aware of during their time in Year 6. It is also an opportunity to virtually meet your child’s class teacher. The slides in the presentation have been uploaded too.
