Dear parents and carers,
This home learning is designed to support and aid you as parents and carers. Please use it to help your child, and support their learning in the best way you can. That said, at the current time, we are all experiencing pressures and needs within our own families not know before. Therefore, please do not put undue pressure on yourselves or children to complete everything. Home learning can be done in many ways, and should be a positive experience. The most important thing right now is that all families are able to be safe, look after one another, and maintain the positives at this challenging time. We are here to help and we understand that you know you child best and can strike the balance between using the home learning and providing the care and attention that all of our children need at this time.
If you need any further support, please email email@example.com and we will do our best to advise and support.

Friday 24th April – Good afternoon Falcon Class – It has been fantastic to catch up with so many of you this week. I have really enjoyed our two Zoom sessions. As ever I am so impressed with all the independent learning you are doing. It’s lovely to hear about you making dens, finding out about 80’s music, seeing pictures of you riding horses and bicycles, running challenges, kittens being born and lots of baking. Remember to check out this week’s home learning. I’d love to hear about your debate - Cream Teas – Are you a cream then jam, or jam then cream family?
Wednesday 22nd April – Morning Falcons – It was great to catch up with so many of you during our Zoom meeting yesterday. I am so impressed with the variety of activities that you have all been up to. From cooking, walking and reading to learning musical instruments and calving cows! Remember to check out this week’s home learning.
Here are some more photographs of things you have been doing and a very topical story from William. You might have heard about the Kookaburra that was spotted on their farm.
Thursday 16th April - Hello Falcons
I hope you have had a lovely Easter and you are enjoying the good weather. I’ve spoken to quite a few of you over the holiday and I know that lots of us are thinking about all the things that Year 6 would normally be doing at this time of year. Like you I’m listening to the news and waiting to hear when we might be back in school but until then below (in a word document) is the work for our first week – Monday 20th to Friday 24th April. I really think that you will enjoy the work and I’ve tried to put in lots of detail to help you. I’ve written it for both you and your parents so I hope it’s clear.
To help with this as a class we will have an opportunity to all talk together. On our website and in the newsletter you will find the times when we will be able to Zoom and I can explain our weeks work and we can all catch up as a class. If you need me to explain anything further just email and I’ll get back to you.
As I explained to you before we finished for Easter our Y6 SAT’s tests will not take place this year. However as a class we did all of the 2019 SAT’s tests the week of 11th March and this together with your class books will help me to make teacher assessments.
Activities like the Summer Production, Sports Day, Life Skills, transition to senior schools, Leaver’s Hoddies, Leaver’s Magazine, Leaver’s Service are all for after half term so I’m sure that we will have a clearer picture of what might happen before then.
Keep enjoying the sunshine, and I hope you and all your family are well.

Friday 27th March - Happy Friday Falcons – What a lovely weather week we have had. I have really enjoyed finishing reading and marking your “How the Whale Became...” stories and looking through your I.L.P books – I’m so impressed with the content and presentation of your work. I hope you have been able to do things that you have really enjoyed too this week. Over the Easter holiday do keep in touch and let me know what you are up to.
Emily and her family have: “Been busy writing and doing mathletics. Lots of baking, walks and looking forward to David Walliams new book coming out next week!”
I will put up on this class page our new work on Thursday 18th April for the following week. Keep up with your folders for maths, SPAG and reading and as much independent writing as you can.
If you word process a story or any work, it would be lovely if you could email it to me, so that I can share it with you.
Take Care Mrs Yallop
Falcon Class Update: Tuesday 24th March
Morning Falcons – I hope you are all well and your family. It is a beautiful day and I’ve just finished Joe Wicks Kids Workout – It is brilliant – Have a go and see if you can do it each day. It’s live at 9am but you can watch it anytime.
I will be adding work for the coming week to our class page from the first week after Easter – the week beginning Monday 13th April. There will be maths, reading, spelling, writing and a topic. The topic will change each week. I will put the work on our class page on a Thursday ready for the following week.
In the meantime keep going with your packs, reading your books, Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars and all the other lovely literacy I know that you are doing.
I think it is important to make yourself a timetable; it will help structure your day. Decide when you will do your school work (it can be in chunks of time), when you will exercise and when you will have free time. I know lots of you will also be helping your family with cooking, jobs around the house, the garden and farms.
If you have anything you would like to share with the class please send it – Photo’s, a poem, photo of art work, of something you have cooked – anything.
Falcon Class is taught by Mrs Yallop and Mrs Molyneaux.
