We would like to say a great big thank you to all Year six children for all their hard work during SATS week. We are extremely proud of them all and are sure they will get the results they deserve.

 

We will be extremely busy during this summer term and have many activities planned.

 

Our new topic is Italy and we have already started to look at Italy. We all know now where Italy is and are bale to locate it on a map of the World. We have looked at Venetian mask and have designed some great masks using Paint programmes in the ICT suite. We have had great fun making our very own Venetian masks using Mod roc.

18th March 

I hope you liked you Mother’s day cards. The children really enjoyed making them for you. Hope you had a lovely day!

 

This week we are having another go at a Reading and Numeracy SAT paper in preparation for the real thing in May. All children are working really hard revising and preparing. So a big well done to all of you!

 

Remember don’t forget to complete your homework when it is sent out. You should all be reading a variety of different texts each day.

 

Use the internet to help you revise there are some great sites out there such as Woodlands and the BBC.

 

Last week, we really enjoyed looking at our topic Spies. We wrote some fantastic Job adverts for a spy and this week we will be writing job applications to become a spy.

 

We also loved using the paint programme in ICT to create our own spy poses with funky back grounds.

 

Have a look at some of our work, cool isn’t it?

 

Don’t forget it’s Parents evening on Wednesday. Looking forward to seeing you all.

 

 

 

 

Welcome back.

 

This term we are extremely busy revising for our SATs tests. We are looking at different genres in writing such as non chronological reports, instructions, and formal letters of complaint and writing invitations. In numeracy we are revising fractions. Decimals and percentages, angles and shape. We are also spending every spare minute reading. If we do have a bit of spare time we will be continuing our CSI topic.

 

This week Mrs Waddington's numeracy group are finding equivalent fractions and ordering tem. we will also be looking at proper and improper fractions.

 

Mrs Millard's numeracy group are calculating time problems and reading time tables we are moving onto looking at angles.

 

In Literacy we have been writing formal and informal invitations. Using the story of Sleeping Beauty we have taken the role of Beauty parents and written invitations to Beauty's Christening.

 

 

Love is in the air year 6! Don't forget it's the Valentine's disco on Thursday 4.00-5.00pm. Tickets are £1.00.
