This week I received the following link and message from Mrs Bellis, Lakelands Academy Head Teacher.
Click the link below as it is a lovely welcome and will explain more about your transition to Lakelands Academy.
Many of our Year 6 pupils will be starting to think about moving on to High School. This can be a daunting time as it brings about change and new beginnings.
Below is a document all about transition and moving on.
Working from home can be very stressful and needs time and effort to make sure that all the family is working together. Make sure you have a routine which includes supporting each other, helping around the house and also ensuring a good bed time routine so you wake up feeling refreshed.
It is important that learning continues. Even just practising times tables and reading for pleasure is a huge step forward in keeping your brain active.
Lots of pupils have continued to post on Seesaw and each day I have been ensuring I am teaching here in school, posting work on Seesaw and approving and commenting on your posts.
Take a look at these superb examples of pupils at work. Every bit of learning will make a HUGE difference for next year.
On Thursday 18th. June, 2020 the Duchess of Cambridge presented an online assembly for the Oak National Academy where she spoke about the importance of mental wellbeing among children. The theme of the Duchess’ assembly was ‘spread a little kindness’.

Mrs. Jones would like to create a bird theme for our Worship areas. Can you help ? Go outside in your garden and then try and draw a bird that you saw. Putting bird food and water out will attract more birds into your garden. Submit your drawings straight to Seesaw and then I will pass them on.
This means class 4 pupils who are in Year 6 are invited to return to school. Please see our School App for further details and guidance of how school will be responding to the current crisis.
In line with the guidance on our School App, Class 4 pupils should complete a weekly home learning pack that can be collected from school An online link is located below for those of you who would prefer an electronic version. I would also like year 5 pupils and any Year 6 pupils who are unable to return to school to organise a daily timetable and program of work which includes the following.
Times Tables Rockstars
Seesaw can still be used to showcase work and where and when possible I will post up relevant work which all pupils in Class 4 may want to access.
Subscription sites should all be visited at least once per week.
There are a lot of resources out there to support Home Learning. Has your child accessed all the hundreds of activities posted in Remote Learning on Seesaw as this may be a starting point. What about continuing with the daily Joe Wicks work out ? Practise addition, subtraction, division and multiplication questions. Learn to correctly spell the Y5/Y6 High Frequency Word List spellings. You may also want to get some inspiration from the following sites as they offer a wider range of subjects, topics and themes.

When School was closed Friday 20th March, 2020 we decided to try and support all parents and pupils by offering daily teaching using the fabulous Seesaw App.
During the time school was closed hundreds of live activities, messages, videos, pictures and explanations were posted to support class 4 pupils.
