NEW YEAR 6 EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR ALL CHILDREN!
To make it easier for you to submit your work to us, every child in Year 5 and Year 6 has been given a brand new email address! This means that children can submit their own work without having to use a grown-up's email address.
You can use this email address to send an email to:
You will not be able to email anybody else (the accounts are set up so that contacting any other email addresses is not possible. This is to keep the children safe online).
Your personal email address and password will be given to you by the school ( we will email/ text/ phone). You must NOT share this password with anybody, including your friends or your brothers and sisters.
Watch the Loom video to find out how to access your email address, or follow the steps in the document which is attached.
If you are having trouble setting up your email address, please email your year group email address for support, or ask your teacher on the phone when they call you this week.

You are not your Thoughts
Watch the video below and then on scraps of paper write down any negative thoughts you have about yourself or generally. Then to help get rid of those thoughts, screw them up and throw them away. You don't need to hang onto those negative thoughts.
