Year 6

Welcome to Year 6's Class Pages

In Year 6 we have two classes: Mrs Stanton's class, 6S and Mr McGilligan's class, 6M. 

 

 

Time table during lockdown:

This is our suggested time table whilst we are in national lockdown and schools are closed to all except Key Workers and vulnerable children. 

Whilst we have provided the level of remote learning as per the Department for Education guidance, we understand that there is a great pressure on parents. Therefore it may not be possible to complete all of these assignments each day / each week. We understand that parents are doing the best they can in very difficult circumstances.
