Mrs McGhie: September 2015
The Year 6 have had a great start to the new school term. I have been really pleased with the way everyone has settled straight back into school and has been rising to the challenges and expectations of being a Year 6.
I would also like to thank my class for helping me to settle into Wrenbury Primary so well, and to get all the school routines right. They even told me that I was sending them out too early for break one day!
This week we have finished all our baseline assessments, and have got straight into our regular timetable. After a big build up, the children have enjoyed starting our class novel 'Wolf Brother', and are looking forward to finding out what happens next. We have been doing lots of discussion and group work and I have been really pleased with the way the children have worked together and listened to one another. Let's keep up the hard work!
On Friday the Year 6 led the celebration assembly for the first time and rose to the challenge by doing a great job. Well done!
Year 6 jobs and responsibilities were given out this week, with all children taking on one or more roles. The children are very excited to take on these roles and I am sure they will all help to continue to make Wrenbury Primary a school to be proud of.
Enjoy the last of the sunshine this weekend!

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
