Willow Class (Yr 5 and Yr 6)

Posted on by

Welcome to Willow Class – the home of our Year 5 and 6! We love to learn and have been developing our skills as independent learners. There’s nothing too big or small that we can’t tackle and we’re never afraid to enter… the learning pit.


Join me for a hive game today at 10:00am on Spelling Shed.

Task 3 – Make a dancing elephant

Task 4 – Camouflage yourself and then reveal yourself

Task 5 – Create an epic sporting event in your kitchen

If you want to join in, have a go yourself and either upload on twitter, tag us @DitcheatPrimary with the hash tag #hometasking. Alternatively, email your entries to the school email address for us to look at. 

This could be a great opportunity to explore different apps and develop computing skills (surprisingly).
