A great week of learning has been had in Year 6, where much of our learning has required the children to consider ‘how’ they are going to approach tasks and why they made the choices they made.
This is known as being ‘metacognitive’ – thinking about our thinking – which has been found to be a powerful tool in helping children make good progress in all areas of learning. When pupils are aware of their strategies for writing a detailed paragraph or solving a maths problem, they begin to grow the independent learning habits that will be with them into adulthood.
4:30pm Monday 13th September – Year 6 Welcome Meeting
A link to this Teams meeting has been sent out via Parentmail and we are looking forward to ‘meeting’ you all then.
These are every Tuesday and every second Thursday of the term. Children should continue to wear PE kit to school.
Have a lovely weekend
The Year 6 Team.
