With only two weeks left until SATS, Year Six have been working very hard to apply their learning and develop their learning even further. This week, I have sent the children home with some arithmetic questions as a bonus challenge.
I would just like to take this opportunity to say how proud your child has made me this term. Each child in Year Six has made so much progress!
Keep up the hard work Year Six.
Week beginning 22nd January
Over the last few weeks, we have been learning all about the blue planet. Please encourage your child to watch Blue Planet II as this will help us with our learning.
We will be visiting Warsop library this Friday. Please ensure that your child brings their library card and any library books that they wish to swap.
Week beginning 9th October
Over the past 4 weeks year 6 have been busy researching events in World War II and evaluating how reliable our secondary sources have been. Today we were lucky enough to be visited by 4 members of The Royal British Legion, who shared personal experiences of being a child in WW II and also told us about being stationed overseas for our armed forces. This afternoon was a fantastic success, with children gaining first hand information!
Week beginning 11th September
This week we will be beginning our creative curriculum, by starting to look at the question: Why are there wars? This will involve identifying and organising key events in WWII and investigating the work of Lowry.
On Friday, Goldcrest will be visiting Warsop library to exchange any of their existing books and also to being their research into WWII.
Week beginning 4th September
A huge welcome to the new year 6 pupils! Both Mrs Coverley and I are extremely excited about the year ahead. We can't wait to get to know each of you and work with you throughout the year. This week we will be completing several activities getting to know each other and highlighting expectations both within the classroom and playground.
We will also be reading The Witches as a class text to celebrate Roald Dahl day. Who will be able to create the most imaginative character description?
If any parents or carers have any questions about any of the the work we are completing or would simply like more information, you're more than welcome to pop in for a chat.
