Welcome to Year 6!

 

 

 

Year 6 Update (25.05.20)

Lordship Lane Primary School is having a Mental Health and Well Being Week this week.

Mrs. Tagliaferri, Ms. Golding, Ms. McTaggart and Ms. Jemal have planned some fun and creative activities for you all over half term. We really hope that you will enjoy them and have some fun.

You can have a go at the activities during half term and do as much or as little as you like with your families. The activities are designed for all ages and the focus is on health and well-being.

You can find these activities attached below.

 

I would also like you to look out for PJ who is our new mental health and well-being mascot. You will be hearing lots more from PJ in the coming weeks.

 

Year 6 Update (11.05.20)

It was lovely to speak to so many of you and your parents over the past week. We are glad you are all doing well and are safe.

This would have been SATs week back at school. Even though you will not be sitting your assessments, you should be very proud of the effort and the progress you all have made this year. As your Year 6 teachers, we are incredibly proud of you!

 

 

Our school is now closed to most children, but this will pass and we will all see each other again soon! If you are worried about what is happening with the coronavirus, remember to speak to adults about it and remember that children are mostly less affected.
