Year 6 Learning Journey

Spring Bank Half Term

posted 22 May 2020, 08:11 by Oliver Mills   [ updated 22 May 2020, 13:10 ]

I have added below the email sent out to all parents regarding the whole-school activities for Spring Bank.


Hi everyone, 

As we know next week should be Spring Bank half term holiday a time that we would ordinarily be taking a rest and enjoying some sunshine. As we continue to spend time at home we acknowledge that some families still appreciate the structure that home learning brings, and with this in mind we have provided two Family Learning Projects:

English – kindly designed by Mr Hanks and Miss Bradley

The project is centred around a Teddy Bear’s Picnic – young or old we all enjoy a picnic and who hasn’t got a bear to enjoy this with. During the summer term we were due to have ‘Craig Bradley’ a poet working with us and he has also supported school with a short video it might inspire you with any writing that follows the picnic.

Design Technology – kindly designed by Mr Patterson

For those families who are looking for ways in which we can make our lives easier – why not set your child off on the Rube Goldberg Machine – you’ll find out all about this in the Family Project.


As it’s a ‘holiday’ and the week before parts of school could be reopening we are asking our teachers to have a rest, therefore the year group emails will not be checked throughout the week. If there is any urgent communication required with school during this time, please direct it to enquiries@dore.sheffield.sch.uk and a member of the Safe Guarding Team will be in contact with you.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for sunshine,

Take Care
