Year 6 News
Mrs Clarke and I were incredibly proud of our class today when they led the maths lesson themselves! Yesterday they worked in partners to plan a lesson and create all of the resources. This morning each pair taught two others an aspect of maths as part of our revision. They used many different skills to do this: organisation, speaking and listening and explaining, as well as the mathematical content. Each pair also planned assessment activities and marked the work of their peers. They all did a great job and we were able to cover 10 different learning objectives for our SATs — well done Year 6!
The whole class are well prepared for the SATs next week; they are excited but calm and confident. We hope that you all enjoy the weekend and that the children get plenty of rest and relaxation. The newsletter detailed the SATs timetable for the week:
Tuesday: Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar
Wednesday: Maths Arithmetic & Reasoning
Thursday: Maths Reasoning
We are looking forward to our day in Wrenbury on Friday and hope that you can join us at 3.30pm for cake and lemonade to celebrate the end of this important week.
Good Luck everyone!
Mrs Francis & Mrs Clarke
