S.T.E.M excitement

Year 6 ended this week with an exciting launch of our S.T.E.M days. This is a whole school opportunity for the children to go deeper with their learning in Science by making links to Technology, Engineering and Maths. Year 6 had a fabulous day exploring, designing and making bridges using their scientific knowledge of materials and forces, using maths to calculate scale and distance and their engineering skils to create a structure for strength and support.

Next week sees the start of Advent and we are looking forward to our whole school Advent Mass on Tuesday at 10.20am at Sacred Heart Church. We can’t wait to see you there.

English sees us continue with writing monologues and Maths continues with our fraction work – focusing on using the four operations to calculate with different fractions and applying them to problems.

A big thank you for the home learning books that the children are bring in. The homework is of a high standards and the children are enjoying sharing it with us and their classmates. Can we please remind you to encourage the children to  complete their homework diary each day with the Sumdog, reading and maths homework that they are undertaking.

Have a lovely week,

The Year 6 Team.
