What a wet week! Torential rain stopped play on Tuesday afternoon during PE, which was a shame as the children were collecting data using the school’s Garmin GPS watches to be able to input it for their computing lessons later in the term. Therefore, we will have a longer PE session this Tuesday afternoon.
Writing this week has finished off studying Narnia and the children have thoroughly enjoyed writing from Lucy’s viewpoint as she explored the wardrobe and the winter wonderland. This learning will prepare and heighten their senses for Harry Potter week next week. Tuesday is Harry Potter dress-up day where children are encouraged to dress-up as a character from the film series. This is NOT mandatory however. Please be aware that they will be doing PE in their outfits, so trainers are best suited for the day.
Do ask your child to explain ‘Stefan’s Method’ for subtraction to you – they have been applying this nifty strategy to their maths this week.
Please keep up with the reading passport challenge and book reviews to help with your child’s self-reflection of their text. It has been great to see so many of the ‘must read’ books gracing the children’s tables. Keep it up!
Have a restful weekend.
The Year 6 Team
