Fortnightly Plan 6thh Class Maths Group Monday 18th May -Friday 29th May


Dear Parents/Guardians, 

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well during this difficult time. 

Please find below some suggested activities for the boys to do over the two-week period, 18th-29th May. There is no pressure to get all the work done, we ask that you complete what you can. 

We would encourage the boys to continue to engage in other activities that they might not usually have time to do such as helping with cooking, baking, gardening etc. 

Remember if you need any help or assistance, we can be contacted on our email addresses above during school hours. We would be more than happy to help with any problems you may have. 

Also, have a look on the website for our feedback Friday sheet, we would love to hear from the boys each Friday & how they are finding the work. We love getting photos of what the boys are getting up to & we can share these on the school website for their friends to see.

Kind Regards,


Mrs. Bartley & Mrs. Bouchier
