Hello and welcome to the Year 6 (Firenze) webpage,
It's been so fantastic to finally be back in school with all of the children, albeit slightly strange with the COVID restrictions in place but the children have been incredibly resilient and are enjoying getting back to learning.
As always, it's important that children read every day as well as learning their spellings and times tables. The children have been using Google Classrooms in school in preparation for if they need to use this to undertake any learning at home. If your child is isolating at the moment I have attached tasks they could complete at home below as we are learning to use Google Classrooms and some may not have been in school for the sessions.
Our P.E. day is Tuesday and children need to come into school wearing their P.E. kit. This will also be the case if we have Forest School.
Please see the 'Meet the Teacher' presentation and video below for more information.

Those of you who have been in school know that we've been looking at the picture book: Varmints (part one).
We have also been watching the animation and a link for this will be below.
After having written diary entries before and after the arrival of the 'varmints', this week if you are working at home, I would like you watch the rest of the animation and use it to complete the following:
- Write a diary entry from the point of view of the varmint coming in and creating your wonderful city.
- Compare the varmints to the creatures - notice their similarities and differences.
- Plan and write what you would expect to happen in the next chapter (part two). Would it be a new story which follows the same pattern but with different creatures and varmints? Maybe part two would begin at the beach or on the top of a mountain, or even another planet... Or perhaps something goes wrong if you are following on from the original story and you want to write what happens next to the varmints and creatures? It's up to you!
