Another Friday has arrived and the weeks are flying by! It’s been very busy in Year 6 and the children have been working hard in all areas. Their enthusiasm and sense of challenge in Maths continues to impress me and I am really pleased that they are remembering to go onto Diagnostic Questions each day to complete the two daily questions – keep this up children! Our current Maths unit is to find area and perimeter of shapes but we are also doing lots of practice and revisiting of many Maths arithmetic areas.
We have been learning all about the Tudors in History and have written some super pieces already, including Henry VIII fact files and witty newspaper adverts where Henry is looking for a new wife! Next week, the children will be creating emotive letters from Anne Boleyn to Henry, asking him to spare her life.
The majority of children seem to be reading on a regular basis and really getting into their books, which has been great to see. Thank you for encouraging them and reminding them to read for 30 minutes a day at home to really help build their stamina for reading and, ultimately, a love of books!
Have a happy weekend and I hope all the mums get a bit of a treat / rest / break on Sunday!
