Hello and welcome to our learning for this week, 13th – 17th July.

We are going to do things a little differently with it being our last week; it is time to celebrate and reflect on your time at Plantation Primary School. Daily activities will be shared below.

Y6 Parents/Carers- please check your emails daily for important Y6 information. If you think school does not have your most up to date email address, please contact the school office to change it as soon as possible. Thank you.

At the bottom of the page, there are some links to further resources and lesson ideas you and your child may also find interesting.

Please reach out to us on Twitter at @Mr_McGorian @PPS_MissBooth @PlantationKillo or through the blog below.  We would love to see the children and their work if possible!

Reflection activity

In preparation for our whole class Zoom calls on Friday, think about the questions below. Can you write down an answer?

Perhaps you could copy the question into a notebook and write your answer underneath. We are going to be posting more questions like this throughout the week; it might be nice to record your answers somewhere for you to look back on when you are older to remember your time at primary school.

During Friday’s Zoom call, we are going to ask for some answers to the questions we post throughout this week. It will be a fun way for us to reflect on and celebrate your time at Plantation as a class.
