Week 6

We have reached the end of what has been a very busy term! It seems like so much has happened since January, not least a change of teaching team in 5/6B. Throughout all of it the children have been fantastic. 5/6B are a very special bunch and they make the job of all the adults in the class fun and exciting!

 

This week has seen the year 6 children have their final round of mock SATs. It was a chance for the children to see what it is like working in either the hall or studio (and having their own desk to spread out on). We were all so impressed by how seriously they took it and the effort they put in. SATs revision guides have been sent home with the children and their is also a section of the website where electronic copies (and answers) can be found along with some other useful advice for children and parents. The link is below...

 

Away from the SATs the children have been finishing and then publishing their writing based on The Water Tower. It has been amazing to see how much they have enjoyed the book and how it has inspired some super writing! In maths the children have been looking at angles. They have been using protractors to measure and draw angles on a line and have also been looking at finding missing angles on a line and around a point. In geography the children spent some more time drawing their own sketch maps. They also looked at turning Ordnance Survey maps into sketch maps. In DT the children made their own healthy muffins (special mention to Mrs Crow, Mrs Bound and Mrs Curran for their efforts). Thursday saw the whole school make their way to church wearing their Easter bonnets. It was the first time that we have all been in church since 2019 and what a treat it was! The children also got some well deserved down time on Friday with art, rounders and all sorts of other activities going on. 

 

It was so lovely to see so many parents and children at the Easter Fair. Thank you to the parents who lent a hand on the 'Pin the Tail on the Easter Bunny' stall. We were lucky that the weather held out before the snow storm hit. 

 

The final song choice this term is by Bastille and is called Joy. It seems a fitting song for what has been a brilliant term. Have a restful Easter and we look forward to welcoming the children back soon. 

 

Thanks, 

 

The 5/6B Team
