Good morning to all our lovely Toucans.
We hope you are all keeping well and managing to get your home learning done, well at least some of it! We had a busy morning in the Whittingham house yesterday; doubling in Maths, phonics, handwriting and story writing so we were glad to just chill out in the afternoon. Aoife found some fabulous stories on this web link https://stories.audible.com/discovery and we had a lovely time cuddled up on the couch listening to them. Have a look yourself, especially under the ‘Elementary’ section.
“No book ever ends when it’s full of your friends.” Roald Dahl
Do books ever end if you have really loved them? Are there books you just love and don’t want to ever end? We remember stories forever; I still remember reading The Enchanted Wood when I was little, and when I read it to my daughter Emily it felt like I was visiting friends again. What book will you read when you are older? Maybe you are being read a book that someone loved when they were little. Mrs Powell
Today I would like you to have a go at the English and Maths lesson from www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons click on Year 6 and then see below. I don’t expect you to complete every activity sheet/game that is attached to each lesson, just do as much as you can. You may decide to spend an hour on each subject, like we do in school, or break it up into smaller time slots to fit in with what you are doing at home.
Also have a go at this Maths activity.
See the attached Home Learning Timetable for today’s History lesson – World War 1
All the best from Mrs Downing, Mrs Whittingham & Mr Beswick and keep smiling!

Good morning my lovely Starlings,
WOW! It is Wednesday already and we are half way through another week. How are you? I hope you are feeling happy, safe and well. I hope you had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to keep busy despite the gloomier weather. It looks like you might need your coat and wellies if you go outside again today. ☔️ If you want to stay in the dry, have a look at some of these indoor activities attached to keep you busy.
Lots of you have beautiful rainbow pictures in your windows for everyone to see but how about growing your own rainbow? Have a go at one of the rainbow science activities attached for today’s special challenge! I’d love to see pictures or videos of you giving it a go.
