Year 6 News
It has been another busy week in Base 5. Alongside our usual lessons, we have been concentrating on our topic books this week, and will have them finished by the beginning of May.
We have enjoyed two musical concerts this week. First, was our Popera event at Brine Leas where we sang our opera and pop medlies. The children enjoyed visiting the high school and performing alongside peers from 3 other schools: especially the part when they all threw their heart confetti! On Thursday, we performed our Easter service at St Margaret's. Thank you to Jasmine for introducing the whole service. Year 6 narrated a poignant story about the Easter story, and William and Aoife did an excellent job reciting our final prayers.
I have enjoyed catching up with all of the families this week at Parent Evenings, and sharing the good news with you. Year 6 continue to work hard towards SATs, and are beginning to feel more confident and well-prepared. They are certainly ready for a well-earned break!
Over the holidays, it is important that the children get lots of rest and relaxation to prepare them for the term ahead. In terms of homework, I have decided to let families choose what is best for each child. I have therefore set plenty of activities for you to choose from, but have not made any of them compulsory. I suggest that you choose a few activities to complete:
â€¢ My Maths — SATs-style assessments and many different topics are available.
â€¢ SATs Busters (Maths, Reading, SPaG) — complete any of the activities then check your progress using the answers at the back.
â€¢ Reading — continue to work on stamina for reading and reading for pleasure.
â€¢ Spellings — work on those you are unsure of.
Early Bird and Wednesday Booster will continue until SATs begin on Monday 8th May.
We hope you all have a wonderful holiday and look forward to seeing you again in April!
Mrs Francis and Mrs Clarke.
