Hey Year 6 Dream Team,
It has been so long since we were all at school learning together. I hope you are all happy, safe and well - I miss you so much!
Lockdown life is very strange isn't it? I have been trying to use the time positively to learn new things, particularly developing my skills in the garden. My gardeninig guru (Mr Hall) has been keeping me busy with lots of homework - from putting post it notes in gardening books to watching his recommended TV shows - ahead of the grand design.
I think about you all every day and keep up to date with how you are all getting on through the school social media page. It can be very frustrating not being able to do the activities you enjoy doing (especially on the sunny days) so why not make yourself a lockdown jar; each time you wish you could do something that you are not allowed to do at the moment, pop it on a piece of paper and put it in your jar. These activities could include going to the cinema, visiting grandparents, resuming a hobby (such as football training or a dance class) or swimming at the local pool. Once lockdown is lifted, you will be able to take an item out of the jar and complete it with a renewed appreciation for the little things in life!
In the meantime, I have included some ideas and websites on this page to keep you busy and entertained during the school closure.
I would love to see photographs of any projects you have completed from the home learning project menu. You can email these to me at Year6@st-thomas-kidsgrove.staffs.sch.uk . This email address is for the purpose of sending in work and photographs only.
Miss Ackerley xx
