Due to current circumstances, I won't be able to hold a face to face SATs briefing this year as I normally would. Instead, please find the slides attached and feel free to speak to me if you have any questions about the KS2 assessments - most of the main details are on the slides. Next week, the children will be taking part in a mock SATs-style week. This is not designed to add stress but it will be a chance for the children to see how the end of KS2 SATs will be in May and will allow them to feel familiar and prepared for the real thing. It's also a chance for me to see what gaps, what strengths and most importantly what each child needs to best support them moving forward. I have spoken with the children about the and they seem keen and I'm sure they will impress us with their growth mindset. Thank you for your continued support and for making this a positive part of their school journey.

An electronic copy of the spelling homework for this week due 25.09.2020. A paper copy was given today. There are 18 to learn (some easy and hard) and write in sentences. I have also put the word list on spelling shed so they can use it for practice..

We are loving our time reading our class novel, Skellig. Any new theories? You could discuss the book with the people at home and ask yourself. . . Who is the old man? How did he learn about 27 and 53? Do you think Michael will take Mina to see him? Will the Baby be okay? Will Michael tell Mum and Dad about the man in the garage?

The Battle of the beaks. We had a really fun afternoon learning about adaptation in our evolution topic.

Discussing ideas and images of God in Re this afternoon. We looked at the Celtic knot and how it is used to symbolise the trinity. Some fabulous sketches of Celtic knots and deep discussions. Well done Y6.

What a brilliant week we've had! smiley

Y6 are certainly impressing us on their return to school. What a lovely bunch we have!


Have a look at the wonderful work they've created below... laugh

Our focus was on achievement today. We talked about our achievements and what we would like like to achieve.. then we used the 'Little People, Big Dreams ' books and learned about the achievements of some very interesting people. We learned how many of them struggled through hard times suffering due to poverty, racism and illness. We were really impressed with the work they created and their presentations. 🦋🌳

Concentrating hard here to sit down at exactly 60 seconds. Well done to those who got it exactly right! It was a challenge :)

Our animal art work from this afternoon. We were thinking about resilience this morning and safe to say, Y6 have shown their resilience with this art project!

Our art work inspired by the wonderful book, The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse...
