Year 6 Daily Learning

As the school is now operating a limited community service and many of you will be learning from home, learning tasks will be uploaded to this page daily by Year 6 teachers. These will largely be 'consolidation' tasks to ensure minimal support is required. 

Class teachers are available to support children with their learning via the email addresses below. However, many of them will be in school teaching. To receive support quickly, please email the Y6 Support address which will be monitored throughout the day.

6EP Miss Price - eprice@chesswood.w-sussex.sch.uk

6RW Mrs Robinson-Wright - grwright@chesswood.w-sussex.sch.uk
