Year 6 - Mrs Newton

Mrs Newton

Good morning, I hope all children and families are safe and well. 

As promised, I will update this page every morning with different tasks for the children to complete. In addition to this, they have their CGP revision guides and a few tasks in the front of their red books (including the year 5/6 spelling words).

On a daily basis, I will also post either:

  • a new skills for children to learn
  • a puzzle for them to complete
  • a new word for them to learn and understand

Any queries can be answered on Class Dojo.

Stay safe,

Mrs Newton
