Welcome to the Year 6 Homepage
What a great first few days back you have had to school! Miss Whale and I have loved seeing all of you and shared so many laughs!
For the days that you are not in school, we would love you to continue as much home learning as you can from the below sites:
Also, in preparation for the Year 6 celebrations on July 10th, we would really appreciate you to complete a few task at home.
1. Please dig out a couple of photographs and send into the emails address (UKS2@northfeatherstone.wakefield.sch.uk). A baby photo and a photo of your first day at school that you would be happy to share with everyone. (Or any young photo of you in uniform).
2. Record and send into the above email address a short video of your favourite/funniest/most memorable time at North Featherstone J&I.
Hope you have a enjoyable few days off and we are looking forward to seeing you next week.

Just a quick message to let you all know that all is well during this very strange lockdown period. I am absolutely fine and keeping myself busy, I have lots of friends and family on video chat too which helps to keep me talking to people. Aside from that, my main daily tasks involve completing school work; lots of time spent looking at the laptop, however around that I am running, walking the dog and tending to the school allotment. The allotment is taking up lots of my time in this busy spring period so hopefully we’ll shortly be seeing a range of produce which has been planted, tended to and harvested by the Gardening Club and the children in school.
Anyway, hope that you are all well, keep enjoying your outside time and get doing some exercise. If you do anything at all that you want to share with us, email pictures to UKS2@northfeatherstone.wakefield.sch.uk. Hopefully this week or next we’ll have a slideshow of all the pictures that we have collected.
Hope you’re all well and keeping yourself as busy as possible. During this lockdown I’ve done plenty of reading and walking. I also learnt a new skill of baking bread including pitta bread – very tasty! I’ve also been working in the school office a couple of days a week. Optimistically hoping the football will restart and so I can resume following the misfortunes of Sheffield Wednesday!
Looking forward to seeing you all again & hearing about your lockdown adventures.
Hope that you're all staying safe and keeping well.
I'm enjoying my free time on lockdown and have been keeping busy. My week is filled with local walks with my family (yes, that is an Oak tree behind me!), lots of baking and cooking and coming into school. I have also been learning a learning a new skill... I'm now a barber for my husband and my sons.
Hope that you are all ok and I am missing every one of you.
See you all soon,
It has been great hearing from you all and I have loved seeing the pictures you have sent through to our new email address.
During the week, I’m still very busy with school work, but I created an outdoor desk during the warm weather. At the beginning of lockdown I got a new bike, and have been enjoying evening rides through the local parks and woodlands with my boyfriend, who constantly moans about how slow I am!! I have also been baking lots and started painting and drawing much more – it is very relaxing.
Otter and Rampage are well and they are loving a new outdoor run – and are eating everything in sight as usual!
It goes without saying I’m eager for the football season to restart, safely of course! Come on Liverpool!
Keep yourselves busy and stay safe! Missing you all – especially the daily laughs!

During lockdown I am enjoying long walk with my dogs; Star and Belle. I helped Mr Morgan clean out our pond counted 84 fish in total! I have also been painting in my garden and enjoying the sun.
Love Mrs Morgan x
