There was great excitement this afternoon as Y6 met their Reception Learning Partners for the first time! They spent their time getting to know each other by reading and playing together in the Reception outdoor learning area. It was wonderful to see the Y6s acting so kindly and maturely with their partners; it is clear that they are going to be excellent role models to them for the year. Here they all are!
In other Y6 news this week, the class were given their badges in assembly for their new leadership roles. Well done also to the Y6s who led the reading in our whole school mass. They also had their first taste of SATs papers, with which they coped very well. In PE, we carried on honing our dodging skills as part of our Invasion Games unit.
I am looking forward to seeing your evacuee costumes on Tuesday for our WW2 trip! Have a great weekend.
This week’s home learning (due Tuesday 25th September) is as follows:
|English||Schofield & Sims English Skills : Section 1 Test 1 – to be completed in pink Home Learning book|
|Spellings||Words from the Y3/Y4 and Y5/Y6 Statutory Spelling word lists – spelling sentences to be written in pink Home Learning book. See below for this week’s spellings. The children also have 2 envelopes – one containing this week’s words and one empty one. Once they feel they are secure with a word from Envelope 1 (short-term memory), they put it into Envelope 2 (long-term memory). I could test them on their long-term memory words at any time, and they will be revisiting them in class. If they misspell a word that they’ve put into Envelope 2, it goes back into Envelope 1.|
