Another week has flown by and Year 6 were delighted to receive the ‘neatest handwriting and presentation’ award from Mr Gately. They have really been taking pride in the presentation of their books and have also shown great attention to detail within their artwork. If you are able to make it to the ‘Firework’ art gallery exhibition next Friday evening, then I am sure you will be very impressed with their Van Gogh-inspired acrylic canvases.
As you are aware, the children have an arithmetic paper as part of their homework pack; they won’t know everything within the paper but it will give me a good idea of the areas which children are feeling more or less confident about. Similarly, we will carry out a few different tests in class next week to begin to see where the common gaps are and to give children strategies for answering questions presented in many different ways.
Our work on fractions has continued and there has been a super atmosphere in class with your children really wanting to challenge themselves and move forward with their learning: excellent!
To launch our Science topic of Electric Celebrations, we had three ‘Dragons’ visit our class (thanks to Mrs Bennett, Mrs Crisci and Hayley) to share this half-term’s challenge with them. In small groups, the children will be designing, creating and presenting a working festive lights decoration!
Thank you for your continued support; it has been great to hear the amount and frequency of reading which the children have been doing at home. Have a restful weekend.
