We thank you for your invaluable support at home and please remember to send us your Hopes and Dreams for our end of year video.

Please continue to work through the activities in your comprehensive pack, which includes a range of worksheets for English and Maths, In addition to this, we will list suggested daily activities and website links for you to use. Mrs Hodge has also set up a Year 6 Google Drive folder with a range of resources that will be constantly added to on a regular basis.

MEMORY BOOK

FOR MRS. SILLITOE

We wish to make a memory book all about our beloved Mrs. Sillitoe and would love you to participate in this.
 
Watch the following video of the story Badger’s Parting Gifts:
 
 
 
In the story, Badger had taught his friends different skills which they could now remember him by.
Write about or draw a parting gift that Mrs. Sillitoe has left you. Maybe she helped you to understand some of your maths work, or helped inspire your love of reading or helped you to sort out a friendship issue?  If you’re not sure, you could write about or draw a picture of a special memory you have with Mrs. Sillitoe. 
 
Mrs. Sillitoe had lots of things she loved… Maths, her dog Bailey, Harry Potter, being funny… Find a way to remember Mrs. Sillitoe. Maybe you could read a chapter of a Harry Potter book, write a funny joke or create a maths challenge for your family.
 
If you would like to pass on any of your drawings, writing or other ideas to your class teacher via the Class Dojo.
We will try to compile a book in memory of Mrs. Sillitoe.
