Wednesday 1st July 2020 - Year 6 Home Learning

Dear all

I hope you are enjoying this week's activities and home learning tasks. 

Please remember that today we are meeting for another online session at 10.00 am.  Your parents should have received an email and text message about this.  Please remind them and connect just before 10 am so we can start on time.  

Children attending school this week will still be able to join for the class.

READING

For reading this week are listening to the audio story - The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Click on the link below to open the audio file.  The book has 24 chapters. Try to carry on listening to 2 or 3 chapters each day so we can finish it this week. 

Keep a notebook while listening to the reading.  Make notes about new vocabulary you can look up later - new words in the text or other powerful words, adjectives, similes etc that you can then use in your writing, including the school memories in the Literacy task above.
