naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Hopefully with the Summer Term, will be some nice sunny weather!

As you know this will be a busy half term for year 6 - Mr Jones and I will be working hard to motivate and encourage your children TO DO THEIR BEST, whatever that is. We recognise, and hope that the children recognise, that we are all individual and our achievements are the same.

Before the Easter break we sent a letter home, with your child's latest results and a list of all we are providing to help support them during a time that we know can be exciting yet scary! 

Just to clarify:

We will be running lunchtime clubs: Monday - grammar, Tuesday - reading and Friday - maths.
Open Maths sessions on a Thursday, after school until 4.15 (please make sure your child knows how they are getting home)
Grammar sessions - specifically looking at tests - Wednesday morning - 8.15am
SATs breakfast, beginning on 29th April - Breakfast provided 8am. 

Other helpful resources are posted on our website page - please look. 

In other news, our topic this half term is The Victorians, we will be looking at children and the workplace, education and crime and punishment plus, whatever else captures our interest. 
PE will continue on a Thursday and Friday - please send your child with suitable outdoor footwear as if we feel the need to get outside and blow away some cobwebs, we will!!!

Thank you for your support thus far, please get in touch if necessary.

Much sleep needed

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Happy Weekend! I hope all the children and staff can use this weekend to catch up on much need sleep after our very windy trip to Whitby!
Although the sky was grey at points, we were able to enjoy every activity we planned. The children asked and answered questions about Captain Cook, saw a lifeboat and discussed how it works and had much fun on the beach, playing games, eating chips and spending money on the arcades (I hope you all received your postcards too).

This week we have set measurement homework on SATs companion - there are many elements to cover, so don't feel these all have to be done this weekend! Use the prevision books we provided at parents evening to help you out too!

Next week is another busy week revision is well on the way now. If you have any questions or need help please let us know. Thursday 21st we are have to Morley Academy to take part in some science work, most of you provided permission for local walks at the beginning of the year. If you didn't, there will be a slip to sign in your child's bag. 

There have not been new spelling in your child's planners for the last couple of weeks. Children should be continuing practise the orange words list that was given our earlier in the year - please as if you need another one. 

Have a good weekend.

Welcome Back

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

We finished last half term as busy little bee's. We created kites and flew them as part of Chinese New Year, completed cycle training and did another round of practise tests. Your children will receive their results from these so please ask them! We will also try to get them out to you on a slip. 

This half term, we will be working hard on filling gaps in learning and building your child's confidence in taking these tests. We may send extra homework from time to time that is linked to something your child needs to practise - we would appreciate you encouraging and helping them where you can. Remember SATs companion also has helpful videos across all topics. 

However, it is not all about the tests....

Whitby is almost upon us. Please make sure all forms are returned, if you are missing something please contact the school office. 

Take a look at what else we are learning by looking to our curriculum page art, PE, history are all still a part of our curriculum! 

If you wish to speak to myself or Mr Jones, please make an appointment through the school office - they will also pass on any messages for you. 

Thanks 

Mrs Harding

One more week to go.

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

It has been a busy week in year 6 - we have been perfecting some of our writing pieces, tackling percentages, learnt about the story behind Chinese New Year, competed some WWII art work and some of us have even worked on our cycling skills! These children keep us really busy :)

Next week is also very busy. We are continuing cycling, as well as our normal lessons. 

Everyone should have received their Whitby pack, any problems please contact the office. Thank you for those who attended the meeting. 

Have a fantastic weekend.

Cycling, Whitby and more.....

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Thank you for everyone who came to parents evening, hopefully everything we handed out will be useful! And well done for encouraging your children to come to our after and before school session - things are heating up SATs wise but we are aiming to keep the children calm and enjoy all the other things school can offer as well.

Next week cycling begins: you should have received a letter with the details. Let me know if not and I will, send information again.

Whitby meeting is next week on Tuesday, 4.30pm in the main hall. If you cannot attend, a pack will make it home to you with all the final details. 

Have a fantastic weekend.

Mrs Harding and Mr Jones
