This week, although a shorter one, has been a busy one!
In Maths the children have continued with their work on place value and we have been looking at negative numbers and rounding. The children have been working hard to explain how they round to the nearest 10/100/1000/10,000/100,000 etc.
In RE we have been looking at the bible and finding out lots of interesting facts about it. As it is our class assembly next week, the children have been preparing for their parts. The assembly is about The Rosary and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible next Friday when they present it to the rest of the school.
In English, the focus has been on completing their letters of application for their leadership roles. Mrs Heymoz read through their pieces and also listened to their audios. Yesterday she visited the class and informed them of the roles that they are leading this year. These leadership roles are taken very seriously and it is an expectation that Year 6 students present excellent role models to all children in the school community. Year 6 children thrive on being responsible, trustworthy and dedicated individuals. They love to take on responsibilities and lead by example. Many of these roles involve children giving up a little of their own time, usually during playtimes, and this is something which they love to do as they relish supporting and enthusing others socially and academically. We thank them for embracing such a wonderful role and look forward to seeing them grow in their confidence by leading by example.
This morning, we celebrated our school mass for the start of this academic year. Thank you to Tymon (powerpoint), Eric (altar server), Johanna (Reading) and Alfie (Bidding Prayers) for helping with the mass and to the liturgy group who assisted me with the altar and tidying away afterwards.
This afternoon, the children met their reading partners! The Reception classroom and outside area was a buzz of excitement. The children presented them with a special card and spent time with them. Photographs of the afternoon will be posted once we receive photographic consent from all reception parents.
