Y6 News of the Week

Home » News » Y6 News of the Week

We have had a very different week in Y6 this week. Riding bikes and watching The Prince and the Pauper at the New Vic was great fun. We have also sat some assessments as we are nearing the end of our Autumn Term.

In Maths this week we have completed two test papers, one arithmetic and one reasoning and problem solving. We will review these papers to build our confidence and further our skills next week. We have also reviewed how to add and subtract fractions.

In English this week we have begun to think about story writing and characterisation. We have written a cold write on a disappointment story as we prepare to build our skills. Next week we will rehearse a modelled story by using captions and pictures and hopefully box up our ideas too.

Our reading focus this week has also been an assessment. We have adhered to the timing of an hour as we completed questions on three different pieces of text. I am so proud of our results and how we have used our skills to answer questions fully. We will re-visit this paper to discuss our answers and the marking scheme. We also visited the Book Fayre this week and I know some you my Y6 children had their eyes on a book or two. Dark Materials seemed to be a firm favourite.

Bikeability has kept us very busy this week in Y6 as we challenged ourselves to ride into the village. The trainers were impressed with all my Y6 children and gave great feedback on behaviour and listening skills. Thank you Y6.

The Prince and the Pauper was a real treat for us yesterday. The performance came to life with superb actors, props and music too. Thank you Mrs Chesters for organising this for us all.

As our History unit on rationing comes to an end, we are beginning to think about our Theme Day which is booked for 13th December 2019. We will only be inviting Y6 grandparents to join us in our VE celebrations event where wartime songs will be sung and dancing will take place. We have been busy learning the Waltz and other dance styles to perform on the day. We will be serving afternoon tea made from rationed products and children are invited to dress in 1940's outfits to bring this day alive. Evacuees, Land Girls or Servicemen and Women are just a few ideas. Further details on this special event will follow shortly.

We are now ready to create our poppies in our next DT lesson. We used our chosen design to create our templates today. We have also been busy working in our study work books and they are coming along nicely.

Christmas words were given out on Monday and I have asked all children to focus on learning them as soon as possible. Thank you for your support as I'm sure you have been pestered to help.

Children have come home today with a new book folder which contains a read aloud book and a reading response book. A leaflet explaining our new programme is also enclosed. We are very excited to begin our new book club focus.

If your child took part in the indoor athletics event last night, I would just like to say how much I enjoyed watching them strive for success, You are a success in my eyes, and I am very proud of you all.

Have a fab weekend.

Mrs Burns
