Welcome to Year 6 McKellen Class
Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well at the moment.
You should have by now received all of your login details for home learning, but if you haven’t, please get in touch with school. Also, please join our Class Dojo as this is a brilliant way for us to keep in touch.
As we are off school at the moment, I am posting below a list of useful websites that your child can use. It is imperative that they keep up with their learning while at home.
From the week beginning 13th April, I will be posting daily learning on ‘Education City’ which needs to be completed each day- I’ll be checking every day and be giving out Class dojo’s for those who are doing this.

Earth Day – Wednesday 22nd April 2020.
Earth Day is a world wide day when everyone in the world encouraged to raise awareness and remind people of climate change.
It is also a day when we remind people about their carbon foot print. Carbon footprint is how much Carbon Dioxide is used by a person, company or product and the impact it has on the environment.
Normally we would be doing activities in school, but with the current situation we would like your help at home.
We would like you to choose one of the activities below and complete it with your child/children. If you can, please can you take a photo and message it to the class teacher on Class Dojo or email it to them.
Teachers will add photos to the school website, on Twitter and the Class Stories on Class Dojo.

Below, is the timetable for home learning for the week commencing 13.4.20 and underneath are any resources that you will need to download. This will be updated each week. The expectation is that all activities are completed- it is not optional. Myself and Mrs Roughley will be checking each day to see who has accessed the learning online and I will be in contact with anyone who hasn't completed their learning tasks. I would love to see pictures of your completed work :) Please message me on Class Dojo or send me an email if you have any problems or questions. Thanks, Miss Fedtschyschak.
