Loudmouth Theatre Visit14-09-2018 | 15:36:21 | No Comments

This afternoon, the Loudmouth Theatre group came to deliver a performance and workshop with Y6 about safe relationships called ‘Helping Hands‘. Helping Hands is a sensitive theatre in education programme that helps protect children through an understanding of positive relationships.

 

It was a fantastic afternoon: the children were thoroughly engaged by the superb actors and we were also very proud of the contributions made by our pupils (who behaved impeccably). Well done Y6!

 

Weekly spellings14-09-2018 | 15:30:40 | No Comments

Year 6 are given ten spellings to learn every week. During the week in school, we will explore any rules and patterns associated with those particular words and we encourage the children to continue this as part of their homework rather than simply memorising the words for in preparation for the test on a Friday.

 

The reasons for this are:

  • to deepen the children’s understanding of the spelling patterns/rules so that they can spell words with increased accuracy in their writing beyond the week of the test;
  • apply their knowledge to similar words that they haven’t practised for the test
  • extend their vocabulary in spoken and written English.

 

Spellings are uploaded weekly to Spelling City and the Y6 blog. THe link for Spelling City is below:

Below you can find a copy of a QR code which also takes you to Spelling City. The children were all given a paper copy of this today and asked to stick them in their spelling books.

 

 

Please ensure that your child brings their spelling books in to school every Friday.

Author visit21-05-2018 | 08:48:54 | No Comments

Year 6 were delighted to welcome Alan Blank, author of the book Barry Spotter, to school this morning. Alan spoke to the children about himself (including what it’s like to be an author), read the first few chapters of his book and answered any questions the children had. 

Alan will be back later in the term so that the children can share their follow-up work with him. He has also promised to share the first few chapters of the second Barry Spotter book which hasn’t even been finished yet!!

Microscopes18-05-2018 | 11:57:06 | No Comments

Y6 have thoroughly enjoyed working scientifically with microscopes this morning! They began by making predictions about what a selection of everyday items would look like when they were magnified before looking at them through their microscopes and recording their observations.

Today, Y6 are using microscopes. Below are two magnified images from our selection of samples. But what are they?

Corbett Maths 5-a-day19-04-2018 | 12:43:48 | No Comments

A few pupils and parents have been asking about additional practice questions that they can work at home.

If you are interested in a few extra practice questions, particularly in the run up to the tests, you should check out Corbett Maths 5-a-day, a free online maths resource.

https://corbettmaths.com/5-a-day/primary/

There are four sets of 5 questions for every single day of the year. The bronze sets are the easiest questions and each set thereafter gets progressively harder. The majority of pupils will find the gold and platinum sets most useful as they tackle the trickier aspects of the KS2 curriculum.

I especially like the fact that they are in groups of 5 questions meaning it can be done as a short, sharp and snappy activity when required. All sets also come with answers.
