Easter Holiday

Week 1


The Year 6 team would like to thank all parents and carers for supporting the children to complete many of the tasks we have set over the past two weeks.

During the Easter holiday we are going to set a number of different tasks that you can pick and choose to complete as and when you wish. 


Art Task

Both Year 6 classes are familiar with 'Rhiannon art.' We would like you to create an 'Easter inspired' piece of art in Rhiannon's style. Think about what Easter means to you and let your creative juices flow. You could include:-

  • Easter bunnies
  • Chocolate Eggs
  • Easter hunt clues
  • Religious emblems

We would love for you to share these with us via twitter. 


Literacy Task

A blog has been set which also has an Easter theme. Log on to find out your challenge. We will look forward to reading and commenting on these over the next two weeks.


Maths Task

It is really important that you continue to achieve your 2500 points on Matheletics. New challenges have been set.



We will continue to add to these tasks. If any of you have any ideas that you would like to do, feel free to email us and we can share your ideas on here with your year group. 

Happy Easter Year 6

Mrs Hughes and Mr Volk.
