We have come to the end of our second day of SATs. We are extremely proud of the children and the effort they have put in so far. The children have shown excellent resilience and perseverance and we are sure that this will continue for the rest of the week.
To help encourage and foster a love of reading, Middlesbrough schools have helped create a list of ‘Best Books’ for children to enjoy. We have sent the logs home for you to look through with your child and encourage them to tick off any books they have read. There is an opportunity within the booklet to enter the Middlesbrough competition by completing a reading review, with the prize of an iPad mini for a lucky winner. Please spend some time looking through the booklet and supporting your children to complete the reviews. Reading logs should be returned to school the week beginning 10th June so that we can keep them updated and send off reviews. Thank you for supporting your child’s love of reading.
Over the past two weeks, Y6 have been exploring the unique archipelago of the Galapagos islands. We have researched this one-of-a-kind landscape by watching documentaries and using the internet to find out about the endemic species inhabiting these islands. We are looking forward to writing our non-chronological reports this week.
