Welcome

The content of lessons taught at school will be shared online here to mirror the learning being done in school. You will find the lesson videos and worksheets available here wherever possible. Some of the school-based learning will differ from what is set. 

Please click on the relevant week and note that resources can be printed but do not need to be.

Friday 22nd May

It’s Sports Day at Home today! Take part in all 5 events and let us know how you get on. There’s an entry link, on the page, for you to upload your scores and, if you share videos or images on Dojo, your parent/carer can give consent if they wish for those to be shared with Mansfield Town and other media outlets like The Chad.

Have a fantastic day…and don’t forget the spellings below this message.

 

What happens after half-term?

If school reopens to Year 6 on June 1st, dependent on the 5 tests being met, then we will be in school with some of Year 6 from June 1st, 8:30-12 each day.

Learning online will mirror the learning in the classroom most of the time. The first day will differ as we settle back into Farmilo.

Mrs.Ferry and/or I will keep accessing Dojo and making phonecalls, but that will happen in the afternoon on our return from school.

 

This is a half-term we will always remember and I want to say well done for your resilience, attitude and kindness. I have heard so many positive stories about you all and whilst it isn’t how you expected to spend your final term at Farmilo, I remain incredibly proud to call you our Year 6 class.

Have a good week off, enjoy the sunshine and we will see you here or in school on June 1st.
