Mrs Francis: November 2016
The children in Year 6 have settled back into school well after the half term break and are working very hard. As a class they have an excellent attitude to learning and I am very much enjoying working with them!
This week in Literacy we began learning about newspaper reports. In order to write this text type, we found out about some different tenses, including the past and present progressive. Next week we will be looking at the difference between direct and reported speech before starting to write an article based on Wolf Brother.
In Maths we have started a four-week topic on Fractions. Each week I aim to cover two objectives and will take the children on a journey to develop FLUENCY and master concepts and methods before moving on to REASONING and finally PROBLEM SOLVING. Examples of some of the problem tasks were sent for homework this week. We have been using some new techniques for assessing the children's learning during lessons, including 'ABCD Cards', 'Exit Tickets' and 'Snowball'. These are proving very effective and popular.
Some of the Wolf Brother maps have started coming in this week and they are looking great — I hope to put as many of them as possible on display. Thank you Year 6 for all your hard work and creativity.
I would like to thank you for agreeing to purchase the SATs Buster revision books; we began using them last week. They are a great resource for checking upon understanding and progress towards our goals and give the children a taste of the SATs well in advance.
I was very proud of Base 5 on Friday when they led our Remembrance service on Friday. They were, as usual, role models for the school and spoke clearly and with the reverence required. Thank you!
