Good afternoon! Another busy week has been had by all and this means we are one week closer to our Fairthorne Manor residential…The children have been returning their meal choice list and excitement is starting to bubble! Please, do not forget the Fairthorne Virtual Meeting which is to be held this Monday, 27th September at 5:00pm – a Microsoft Teams request has been sent to parents and carers. The year 6 team look forward to unveiling more information about the week and to clarify specific details that will make your child’s stay and experience all the richer and fulfilling.
The children have undertaken their homework duties extremely well over the last week, and it has been brilliant to see all homework handed in and completed – great resilience from the children!!! Other learning has seen the children dive into some rounding of number in maths so if you are out at the weekend carrying out your weekly shop, have your child round up or down the items on your shopping receipt to the nearest ten pence and to the nearest pound. This will help cement their rounding knowledge within a real-life context, and you can talk to them about why rounding money can be beneficial when dealing with money and weekly budgets.
Other learning has seen the children commence their thinking around our Science investigation for Circulation, and what type of investigation we might be able to carry out in relation to ‘Lung Capacity’ and the children in the class. There were some interesting ideas for experiments and plenty of discussion about how those ideas for experiments would or would not work in the classroom. Talk around feasibility, what it would look like and how reliable the results would be were also had. Watch this space for developments!!!
We hope you all have a good weekend.
The Year 6 team.
