Hello everyone - isn't it cold! 🥶🥶🥶
We have had another busy week. We have been writing about Earthquakes and other natural disasters in English and Geography. We had a livestreamed assembly about the Houses of Parliament and an assembly from Mr Weldon. He reminded us that Advent is just around the corner. I wonder if any children can remember the meaning of 'Advent'. We have continued to improve our fluency and reasoning about fractions.
On Monday afternoon OCRA will be at school to hold a Cross Country challenge for all of Key Stage 2. Please send children to school in their PE Kits and with a spare pair of shoes as they may get their PE trainers wet running on the field.
Next week is assessment week across the school. Year 6 will be doing past SATs papers. For homework I have asked them to use their revision study guides and question books to revise any areas they feel they need to. I hope you can support them with this. I've attached the timetable so you know which test is which day. I have also set another small challenge for homework and that is to see if they can access our Google Classroom from home. They have instructions for this and if they are able to they should send me a (polite!) message. Don't worry if they don't have a device to use or if you don't have internet access. It is just a little experiment to see how many children would be able use this in the event of a bubble or individual lockdown.
We have had a really positive week and the children have been working really hard and rising to the challenge of Year 6 - Well done everyone.
Have a great weekend - Stay safe and warm!!
