Tuesday

Good morning!

Please note: Work listed on here is the priority for completion.  With the exception of French, work set on iamLearning is for revision and fun (I know lots of you like earning coins for your avatars).

Check the timings of activities set and try to stick to them - if something is taking longer than it should, let your teacher know.  Remember that just like in school, some work takes some people longer than others, but they will find other tasks quicker and easier.

Your homework will always be to complete unfinished tasks (as you would have been asked to do in school), so don't feel like you can't let yourself have a break. And again - remember that if you are getting lots of left over work at the end of the day, let your teacher know so they can tell you what to prioritise. 

You are doing brilliantly - keep it up.  The Year 6 team.
