The Duke of Norfolk CofE Primary School

Year 5 & 6

This week is rather bitter sweet for our Y6s. All the hard work you had put in throughout KS2, especially this last year, was aiming towards this week. Some of you will be glad it's not happening and some of you will be disappointed. Your commitment and your attitude towards your learning is second to none. Just remember, a test cannot measure how amazing you are. You are all incredibly talented in many different ways. We cannot tell you how incredibly proud of you all we are.

Keep Safe

Love from us all xxx

Dear Year 6...

Still image for this video
* If you are finding any of this work a bit too tricky without having your teacher there, then feel free to complete the work located in the rainbow icon.  This work will still keep you practising key skills needed for year 5 and 6, but which you can do independently.  And remember, what we are going through at the moment is not normal, so just do your best and if you feel yourself getting frustrated at the work, go and have a break for a few minutes and come back to it when you feel calmer. You've got this 5/6!*
