Class 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Teacher: Mr Cullen

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Rose

Hello everyone!

 

Well done for all your hard work at home over this half term. It is the half-term break this week so have a well-earned rest!

 

I will leave last week's timetable up for the rest of the week in case you need to do any catching up. The home learning timetable will restart on 1 June.

 

 

The Spellbinding Books vote is still open so please can you all email me with your choice if you haven't done so already. Remember that if you need new books you can access Cumbria libraries' BorrowBox service. There is a good selection of children's / young adults' fiction and I recommend checking it out.
