Spring Term

13th March 2020

A great week in Year 6. We are really getting to grips with our shape and space work and have had a go at some tricky reasoning work on this. We've also done some practice reading tests this week and we have seen some fabulous progress. The children are working hard in the lead up to SATs and we are very proud of them all! Have a well deserved weekend!

6th March 2020

What a busy week! In maths we have looked at shapes and angles, as well as continuing with our arithmetic practice. In reading we are now more than half way through The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas and the children are so excited to read Chapter 12 next week. We had a fabulous time on Thursday with World Book Day 2020 and our outfits were super! Some of us have now gone off to Robinwood and those of us staying back finished the week with a music session with Ms Hunt. Have a lovely weekend!

28th February 2020

A busy four days back! We've been looking at character impressions in reading and have also done lots of practice test questions and our confidence is improving weekly. In maths we've been looking at equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages. A highlight this week was our trip to Eden Camp. We behaved brilliantly as always and we loved seeing all of the different huts and linking them to our curriculum work. Have a lovely weekend!

14th February 2020

The end of a fantastic half term in Year 6! The children have worked so hard and made such fantastic progress and it was lovely to have such positive conversations with you all at parents evening. This week we've looked at decimals in maths and we've focused lots on test techniques in reading. We enjoyed a visit from the police on Tuesday where we learned how to stay safe online. Have a super week off!

7th February 2020

Another busy week in Year 6. We have continued with our work on fractions, decimals and percentages and again many of us have had gains on our arithmetic tests this week. In reading we have met some new characters in our book, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. We've looked at how the author uses language to convey character and have applied this to some poetry too. In science we've been looking closely at evolution. We finished the week with NSPCC number day and a fun afternoon of maths! Have a lovely weekend

31st January 2020

A fun week in Year 6! We are enjoying our book, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, and have done some fantastic inference work around this. In maths we have been getting to grips with percentages. Our arithmetic scores went up this week and we're hoping for more gains next week! On Thursday we enjoyed a visit from the IMPS team, who taught us some crucial first aid skills. Have a great weekend!

24th January 2020

A really great week in Year 6. We've had a go at some practice SATs papers this week and the children have approached these with maturity and resilience and they should feel really proud of themselves. We've also found time for some fun! The Parent Partnership Challenge was great and on Friday we had a special visit from the Prison Me No Way campaign in which we learned about crime and consequences. Have a super weekend!

17th January 2020

Another busy week in Year 6. We've been branching off into smaller groups for our maths and reading lessons and the children have adapted well to the change in pace. We've continued with our fractions work in maths. In reading we've looked at some non-fiction around the holocaust to link to The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. We loved getting our study guides this week. Let's put them to good use over the weekend!

10th January 2020

We've hit the ground running this week! In maths we've been comparing and ordering fractions and we have tackled some challenging SATs style questions on this. We've started The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas in our reading lessons and we're already hooked. The focus of our reading sessions has been vocabulary and we've had some ambitious words to get to grips with. We started our World War Two topic and have looked at how the war broke out and Hitler's ideologies. Looking forward to next week! Have a great weekend.
