And another week gone

Dear Parents and Year 6 children,

We have had such a busy week at Crabtree! From finishing (or starting) our art work on canvas (more pictures will be uploaded soon) to practising for our Gym display next week, the children have hardly had a minute to breathe!

As you know, Monday is our Junior Apprentice Day where the children will be making their own board games based on the Harry Potter series; a bit of a grand finale to this term's brilliant topic. Some children (50% from each class) have been bringing some resources/materials and equipment we may need for Monday's exciting activity, however we would appreciate it if more children could try to gather unused buttons, bottle tops, ribbons as we seem to have a lot of cardboard, but little of anything else. The Year 6 team really appreciates your support. We understand that it can be hard to find DT materials at home, but because we have planned so many cross-curricular activities this term (which has really engaged the children in their learning), the school has not been able to supply all materials needed. We appreciate your understanding.

Finally, as published on the learning platform, we are also expecting the children to bring in their Geography project by Monday. Some children from both Elm and Elder have said that they are unable to print their work at home. If so you can also upload your work on the learning platform:

How to save your files to the learning platform. This is how you do it:

From your home page go to my files

Click on upload files

Browse your own files on your computer to locate the file you wish to upload, and then click to choose and upload it to the learning platform. It will be added to your list of files.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on upload. This should save your file to the learning platform.

Hopefully, it should work!

Thanks for your cooperation and have a brilliant weekend.

The Year 6 team.
