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!

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
