Summer 1 Week 7 – Friday 24th May

Well, we have come to the end of a long and tiring half term where the children have shown incredible effort, resilience and character to work there way through SATs and a full-to-bursting curriculum!

This week, the children have completed their penultimate piece of writing – a report all about the Galapagos Islands. They have worked brilliantly to research, write, organise and present a fantastic piece all about the islands and their inhabitants. The children took full control in the way they wanted to present their reports, with some opting for a booklet, poster, double page spread or even simple written paragraphs. Some reports were supported by photos, fact boxes, pop-ups and captions. The children are extremely proud of their efforts and so are we!

We began to recap some of the songs from our summer performance – Shakespeare Rocks – with the children in both Y6 and Y5. Our classes have remembered the words really well and are singing like angels! We have begun to allocate roles for the children and today they will receive their script in order to practise over the half term holiday. The 2 main performances will take place in July and tickets, dates and times will be sent out after the holiday. If you’d like to know more, or even practise the songs – click here.

This week, the children also began to look at the impact of money on their lives – by discussing topics such as work, pay, debt, loans and spending money, and considering how they impact on our moods, feelings and emotions – you can find out more here on the Natwest website

On Wednesday, we also celebrated National Numeracy Day. We thought about how numbers and the understanding of basic maths can have a positive influence on our future working life. We participate din the Numeracy Heroes competition, where the children had to visualise themselves in their ideal job and then consider how number knowledge might impact positively on the work: Fire Officers – who needed good knowledge of measurements and volumes; Bakers – measuring and money; and shop workers who needed to have a good understanding of time and money.

We would like to remind parents and carers that the children in Y6 still need to come into school in appropriate uniform each day (including appropriate kit on PE days). As a brief reminder, plain black shoes/trainers, black or grey school trousers/shorts or skirt, white polo shirt and red jumper or leavers hoody. The full uniform list can be found on our website here.
