Well done to Year 6.
An enjoyable term with a wide range of activities completed. Our Remembrance Day artwork has been widely praised by many people and we had great fun with our Christmas songs (see pictures below). We were also extremely proud of those children who achieved their 'Bikeability' Level 2 awards. We've made good progress towards our SATS goals.
We need to continue our hard work into the Spring term, where our priorities will be practice tests and 'gap filling' to ensure everyone is fully prepared and achieving their best during SATS week in the Summer.
So next term's spotlight will focus on the core subjects as follows:
MATHS - Fractions; Data Handling and Individual gap filling
ENGLISH - Non-fiction writing (Mayan civilisation); Persuasive writing; Reading Comprehension and Grammar work.
SCIENCE - Electricity and Animal/Human Body Systems
There will also be a special focus on handwriting and presentation.
What an 'enlightening' start to the year!
In Science, we have been studying LIGHT and SHADOWS.
We've been looking at variables in Science experiments -
Independent (what we change); Dependent (what we measure or observe); Control (what we keep the same)
We looked at different criteria to test our ideas about what affects the size, shape and colour of a shadow.
It's finally arrived!
At last, the end of the summer holidays and the start of a new term...
Hooray, we hear the parents cry.....
The Year 6 team are ready for action.
Mr Fisher, Mrs Martin, Mrs Skinner and our new member, Mrs Afolabi, will lead the children through the excitement and perils of the final chapter of Northwood life.
Some areas of study that are coming your way.
Light and Shadows
Living Things and their Habitats
The Mayan Civilization
Mood and Atmosphere in Art
PE is on Wednesdays for Year 6, but please ensure that correct PE kit is in school all the time in case we feel like some exercise on a different day.
The Mathletics and Reading Eggs programs are up and running, so log in and practise some Maths and Reading whenever you can.
