This week's spellings
Week commencing 4th February 2019
Home learning this week is to complete pages 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 of the SPAG revision book. It is due in on Monday 4th March.
As part of our History topic, Year 6 had the opportunity to create their own timelines based on the battles of WW1. Here are some brilliant examples of timelines by Chris, Chloe and Phoebe. The children used a range of information to present this in any way they wished, ensuring it was clear, bright, colourful and eye catching. Well done!
This afternoon Sycamore class had the chance to explore all different types of glue. The children were able to evaluate which glue would be the best for making a shelter, by experimenting with super glue, PVA glue, glue sticks and even a hot glue gun! The children have made some brilliant fences ready for their shelters next week.
Welcome back, we hope you all had a good half term .
This half term we have many exciting opportunities in store for the children.
On Tuesday 13th November - Cinema visit
On Friday 16th November - Visit to Fort Purbrook for Junior Citizen workshops.
On Wednesday 21st November - anti-bullying production (parents are invited too) 9:20am.
Again we appreciate your support and expect every child to complete 10 minutes times tables practise and 10 minutes of reading (please send your child in with their reading diary signed) every day. Additionally, the children will often be sent home with practise SATs papers to work through at their own pace.
On Thursday 4th October parents and carers are invited to our Year 6 Parents meeting at 3.30 pm.
It is imperative that our Year 6 children develop their independence and responsibility so they are ready for their next journey - Secondary school. With this in mind we expect the children to complete:
Daily times tables practise.
Topic work when set.
We want children to go above and beyond and be the best they can be, therefore if they wish to complete other home learning activities then this extra effort is praised and goes towards moving onto the next band.
