Good morning everyone and welcome to another week of remote learning,

Wow, can you believe we are already into February!

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week. Schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.  Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good. It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.
To celebrate this week, we will be having an assembly this morning, at 9am, via the link you have been sent. Following on from this, we have some lovely activities that you can do, as part of our planned PSHE lesson, that help to make you feel good.  Go to our lesson plan to find out more.

We have some more great English and maths lessons this week, along with some more interesting work on First News iHub.  Well done to those of you that have been on and completed the tasks we have set.  Remember, you need to focus more on getting a higher accuracy rating over being top of the leader board.  We hope you are enjoying this fantastic resource.
Oak National Academy are continuing to provide a free eBook each week.  You also get to meet the author. So far, they have given access to Tracy Beaker (Jacqueline Wilson) and Steal an Elephant (Nizrana Farook). There will be more titles added as the weeks go on. If you are interested in this, here is the link to access these books https://library.thenational.academy/ 
Don’t forget to take a look at the creative curriculum lessons we have planned for you this week.  It would be great to see more of you completing these lessons.  We are certain you will enjoy them.

Remember to email your work to your teacher.

Have a fantastic week, everyone, and keep working hard.

Stay safe,

The Year 6 Team x
