Welcome Winterton to the second half of year 6!


 

Hello everyone

Welcome back to school and I hope you all had a relaxing break, or that you caught up on missing literacy and numeracy.

This half term will see changes to your remote learning. We will have registration and live lessons every day on Teams via the General channel in our class team. You should have received a notification for our first meeting on Tuesday 23rd at 9.30 am. This will be a meeting to say hello to every one and talk about what will be happening the rest of the week.  Also this will be the last blog you will access via our website. From next week all your work will be in our class team. Try logging into Teams using your Microsoft 365 account to see what it looks like.

You will be expected to log in to all our meetings and live lessons every day from Tuesday. I will schedule them after our meeting on Tuesday, so you will receive notifications of these as I do that. Remember if you have a problem with devices or broadband connections, contact the school office and they will see if they can help.

OK now here is this week’s work:
