SCU 6 Mrs Pollock
Hello SCU6, I hope everyone is well and keeping safe. It has been a bit of a strange week not being in school and doing lots of fun Easter Activities together. I was really looking forward to painting our eggs, taking them to the Commons to roll them, have an Easter Egg Hunt and enjoy fun together. Sadly, we couldn’t get to do this but some of you live close to the beach and others open spaces so maybe you could have your own Egg Hunt or maybe a Scavenger Hunt. Anyhow, it’s Friday and I'm sure you have all earned your Golden Time, so enjoy some free time this afternoon. Also, it’s now officially the Easter Holidays so ‘ NO’ school work for 2 weeks!!! Check back in on Monday 20th April for some new online activities. Happy Easter everyone, from Mrs Pollock, Mrs Rodgers & Mrs Galway😊👍
Hello SCU6, I hope that you’re all well and enjoying some time with your families. I know that you all love to spend time gaming and you’re probably ranking up in your games. I know this is fun but can I please encourage you to spend some time doing ‘ other things’ as well. This week if we’d been in school we would have being completing lots of Easter based activities, so this is what I’ve uploaded on the website for you. Have fun and keep smiling! 😀 Mums and dads I know that these are very strange times for us all. The activities are only suggestions so only do what fits in around your other family commitments. Take care Mrs Pollock

We have also been finding the area of shapes by counting the squares and multiplying. You could measure items in your house for example books, kitchen tiles, windows and doors. The numbers may be bigger but you can use a calculator to work out the area and remember to measure the length and the breadth and multiply. Dont worry about the triangles in the area worksheet.
