Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We hope that you have had a good week. We have been writing argument texts in English as well as learning the features of an informal letter. We have been learning about longitude and latitude in Geography and have been considering the future of books in History and looking further at parallel circuits in Science. We have also been looking at Diversity this week as part of Mental Health Week, and thinking of small steps that we can take in our lives to look after our wellbeing.

 

Finally, an enormous congratulations to all of those who attended the Tag Rugby tournament on Wednesday with Mr Levett: they all did very well!

 

 

We hope that you have a lovely weekend!

With best wishes,

Mrs Latty, Miss Afrifa and Mrs Standing.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

This week, we have been continuing with our book, 'Runaway Robot', where we have been delving more into the characters, their actions and motivations, and really examining how they feel. We have been writing newspaper reports and diary extracts based upon some of the events that happen in the story.
In Maths, we have been looking at division and the different strategies that can be used for both short and long division.  We have been describing flags in Spanish and considering in Geography, how easy it is to be a citizen of the world while still being true to our own culture(s) and personal identities. We have also enjoyed Tag Rugby which began yesterday as an after-school club. 

 

A number have children have asked for details of 'Runaway Robot' so that they can purchase a copy of the book to read at home. It is by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. Please put your child's name inside, if they are bringing their own copy to school.

 

Thank you for your continued support; have a good weekend.

Mrs Latty, Miss Afrifa and Mrs Standing.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We hope that you have had a good week, despite the weather, and for those of you who were able to attend our 'Open Classrooms' on Tuesday, we hope that you enjoyed seeing our learning environment, the Discovery Centre and The Sanctuary. This week, we have had our Harvest Festival assembly: thank you for your kind donations. In English, we have continued to learn more about Alfie, the main character in our class novel, 'Runaway Robot'. In Maths, we have been looking at different ways to multiply a range of small and larger numbers. In History, we have continued to explore the process and development of how books have been made and disseminated across the ages, and in Geography we have been looking at racial stereotypes and asking whether there is any truth in the representations that are currently in existence.

 

Please note that our Home Learning is posted every Thursday on Class Notebook. There are four sets of Maths homework on display. Please ensure that your child does the maths work that has been set by the teacher who teaches them Maths - this might not necessarily be their own class teacher. There are no assignments for return for Term 1 on Tuesdays; however, please ensure that comments are being logged onto GoRead every week.

 

Thank you - and have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Latty, Miss Afrifa, Mrs Cheesman and Mrs Standing. 

 

 

Friday 24th September 2021:
Dear Parents and Carers,

Well, this week, we have been focusing on our writing: looking at the characters in our class novel, 'Runaway Robot' and writing character portraits, based upon what we know and can infer.
In Maths, we have focused upon the four operations: how to use a variety of methods as well as how to solve a range of word problems. In Science, we have been looking at how to draw electrical circuit diagrams, before testing various circuits to see which ones are the most robust. We have been looking at descriptions in a variety of reading texts, and continuing with our Spanish, learning how to count to 15! In art, we were studying different types of line drawing and their uses. 

 

 

This week, we have also started our Home Learning. This is set every Thursday and is due back in the following Tuesday. There will be Reading tasks, spellings and Maths set every week. Please go to Teams and then to Class Notebook where each week's work will be uploaded every Thursday at 3pm.

Thank you for your continued support; we look forward to seeing many of you at our Year 6 'Open Classroom' on Tuesday.

Until then, have a lovely weekend!

 

Have a lovely weekend! 

 Mrs Latty, Miss Afrifa, Mrs Cheesman and Mrs Standing.
