Year 6

Update for Week beginning : 21.05.2018

Wow! What a week we had last week!! Fantastic fun at breakfast, immense concentration in the tests and fun on the beach on Friday. The children coped amazingly with the tests and, if it were up to us, it would be A *s all round for effort and attitude which is what really counts. Well done everyone – we are even prouder than we thought we would be!

English and Maths information:

This week, our English focus will be on writing manifestos for our political parties, as well as how to be persuasive in writing. Horror stories will be making a comeback after half term.

In Maths, we will be exploring percentage changes in voting patterns and handling data.

Other curriculum news:

Today, we launched our ‘Election 2018’ project and introduced the children to the political parties they will be choosing between.

As homework this weekend, we would like them to examine the ethos of each party so that they can choose their allegiance on Monday morning and begin the work of campaigning and policy creation. It’s going to be a busy week, as they have four days to allocate roles, write speeches, policies and manifestos, record a party political broadcast, create a website and design a campaign strategy! Who says it goes quiet after SATS?!!

We are also looking forward to golf and BSO trips on Wednesday and Paddy’s Purpose workshops on Thursday.

General Information:

PE will now be on Tuesday afternoons ( indoor) and Thursday afternoons ( outdoor) so please make sure Summer kits are in school on those days.

We are really looking forward to an exciting and brilliant last half term together!

Any questions, please do catch us in the playground.

Miss Brennan and Mrs Dodd
