Good afternoon everyone. It has been an active week for year 6 this week. They went swimming on Tuesday - they all really enjoyed this and were really well behaved and a credit to the school. Miss Penny was impressed with their confidence in the water. Thank you to Miss Ruby and Mrs Robins for taking them. We also had Quad Kids on Thursday (an inter-schools athletics activity run by OCRA) and then our normal PE lesson today with Saints. We also managed to fit in: finishing our story chapters, maths lessons on angles + an arithmetic test, investigating living things in science, guided reading, spelling, French, RSE(puberty) and RE!!!! They really are working hard. Our RSE lesson today was about puberty. If children want to use websites to find out more encourage them to use the websites recommended below as searching randomly may bring up inappropriate or just incorrect information. I will post the website links below.
On Monday, we will be having a visit from the head of Year 7 from Okehampton college to talk to them all about transition. Next week, we will spend more time preparing for our leavers' assembly and leavers' book as well as preparing for assessments in the following week. For homework, I have asked children to use their revision books to go over any areas that they feel less confident in, in maths and reading. This might include fractions, as well as prime numbers, square numbers, cube numbers, multiples and factors as it has been a while since we covered those things. In reading they might like to look at inference and language choice as these are sometimes the sort of questions they find more difficult. They also have 10 spellings to learn for next Friday. I would like children to bring their revision books every day next week and then if we have any time we can do a bit of revision in class.
