Week ending 25th September 2020
The children are starting to find their feet more; they're starting to look like Year 6s!! We've had a busy week, finally finishing The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. I thoroughly recommend it, the children loved the inspirational messages.
Can I remind parents that we have been advised to discourage children from bringing items from home. For birthdays, any treats must be shop bought and in separate packaging. They will be handed out as the children leave the classroom.
As the weather is changing, please can you ensure that your child is dressed appropriately. We have to keep the windows open all day for ventilation and it is already becoming cold.
If your child is not at school (but is well), work is provided on my class page and on Google Classroom.
Monday - individual photos
Monday to Thursday - Bikeability. Please check your child's bike to ensure they are roadworthy. The children will be outside all afternoon, Monday to Thursday so please ensure they are wearing suitable clothing (uniform, not PE kit). I would recommend trousers/leggings.
There will be no PE on Monday but there will be PE for those who are not taking part in Bikeability on Wednesday.
Have a nice weekend.
Week Ending 18th September 2020
We've had a lovely week...hard work but lots of fun too!! The children have completed their first practice SATs papers. I have shared their scores with them and will be using this information to help me plan intervention groups. We have also watched the film, 'Oliver!' to find out information about Victorian times. I can honestly say I've never seen such a captive audience!! I had so much fun just sitting and watching their faces!!!
The children are all set up with logins and passwords for several educational websites. Links are on my main page.
If your child is doing Bikeability the following week (week beginning 28th September), this might be a good time to check their bike and helmet!!!
I will be adding tasks to Google Classroom that can be completed during the week if your child is absent.
All children also brought home an independent English and Maths workbook.
Have a great weekend.
Week ending 11th September 2020
Year 6 have had a brilliant start to the new term. I have thoroughly enjoyed their company this week! They have tried very hard to 'keep apart yet stay together' both in the classroom and out on the playground. They have kept to their seats and followed the new procedures sensibly.
Tonight they will be bringing their homework books home; they have 3 homework menus which they can dip in and out of any time they wish. There will be no set return date for homework - they can put their book in the quarantine box when they want me to check it. I give dojo points for a returned homework book and raffle tickets for each completed piece.
All homework is posted on the class page.
We shall attempt our first SATs papers. I'm keeping this fairly low key; it's mostly to show me gaps in knowledge and understanding. I will share the results with the children but not with parents at this early stage.
PE on Monday and Wednesday.

Year 6 are fantastic!!! We have had a brilliant day! Every single child was sensible and grown up...I'm very proud of them accepting new rules and a 'new normal'. And they've done lots of work!!!!
