What an amazing half term we have had! We have been non-stop in every subject, your child has really worked hard to deepen their knowledge and understanding in a variety of subjects. Please take time to reflect on your child’s learning so far.
A HUGE thank you to those parents who attended Parents Evening – it was great to be able to discuss how your child has settled in to Y6 and the areas in which we’re trying to support their progress.
In English, we have concluded our war themed writing by completing our Remembrance poetry. Some of the poems are poignant and beautifully written, and we’ll be using them during our Remembrance assembly on Friday 10th November (9:15am) – You’re very welcome to attend and join the service. Your child will have arrived home with their personal invite to you, some of the children have also delivered invites to the local community and had the opportunity to speak with them.

In Maths, we have began our new unit of learning which is all about Fractions. Please ask your child questions about equivalent and simplifying fractions. They have also developed successful steps to order their fractions in ascending and descending order using a lowest common multiple for the denominator. Next term, we will begin looking at the four operations with fractions.

Future News and Help: To celebrate World Book day in March 2024, we’ll be holding a week of activities around the theme ‘Reading is magic‘. To help us to celebrate in school, we’d welcome any donations of Halloween decorations you may have from this year. There will also be a dressing up day, so if you have witch/wizard/Harry Potter costumes, please keep them to use during this week. If you have any decorations we could use, please send them into school after half term, from Tuesday 7th November. More information about our reading week will be shared in the new year. Thank you for your continued support.
