Week beginning Monday 15th June 2020 

Hello Year 6! 

How are you all doing?  Ready for the week?  Lots of exciting learning to look forward to this week: we’re getting started on Holes – all the adults agree that it’s one of our favourite books so we hope you enjoy it too.  Mrs Kempe is reading the book for you - it is available in the audio section on the school website. Please listen in! To make it even more fun (could that be possible?) we have created quiz questions for you - between 5 to 10 questions each day about the chapters which you have heard - so listen carefully! We’re going to delve more into the lives of the Maya – Friday is all about food!  We’re also starting our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) this week: we’ll begin with thinking about puberty.  It’s really important you have people you trust to discuss these things with so that you can ask the questions you want the answers to and trust that you will get an honest answer. 

Have a great week smiley
