Welcome back to the new year. Here you will find events celebrated, excellent learning highlighted and children's passion shared throughout the year.
Keep an eye out for the concentration, perseverance and enthusiasm for learning across the year.
For our Live Learning session this week, we spent the afternoon looking at test techniques in a more fun and engaging way. Our parents were able to see the types of test questions that we complete during our reading tests, but they also got to see how we go about answering the questions by using evidence from the text.
Thank you to everyone who came and joined us, we had a lovely afternoon learning alongside you.
Over the past few weeks, we have been looking at non-chronological reports. The children have worked very hard in the lead up to their extended writing task. They have written captions for pixies, written diary entries as boggarts, considered what it was like to be a river troll and have reported on giant salamanders and sea serpents causing havoc off the coastline.
The end product was their own non-chronological report on their fantastical creatures with the addition of labelled diagrams and news broadcast or letters informing people to be vigilant.
Well done Year 6, you did yourselves proud.
We have had an amazingly busy first two weeks of Year 6. Above are a few photos from some of our activities including number cross problem solving, teamwork in PE, reading an entire book in one week and completing our Random Acts of Kindness nominations.
