Welcome to Miss Miller's Year 6 class
I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break and bank holiday weekend.
We are off to a flying start this term, with only four school days to go before the year 6 children take their SATs ‘Show-Off’ assessments. I’m sure all will be determined to do their best and we are definitely making the most of our time in school.
During the afternoon sessions we are going to be completing our unit of work, ‘Space’ in science and moving onto, ‘Forces.’ In 6LM we are also about to complete our ‘Mapwork’ topic and will then move onto ‘WWII’ - I’m sure the children will thoroughly enjoy all of the activities they are faced with.
The summer term also sees us start work on our production, ‘The Amazing Adventures of Super Stan!’ The children considered the different productions offered to them and this is the one they opted for. I certainly think this will showcase their humour - I can't wait to be entertained!
Morning lessons will continue this term; children will be completing maths and literacy lessons to help them prepare for their transition to secondary school as it’s fast approaching!
The children continue to have P.E. on both Wednesday and Friday and they will need to remember their kit on these days. As it is the summer term, we may be able to squeeze in some extra P.E. sessions in preparation for summer competitions so having P.E. kit in school every day would be very helpful. I should remind everybody; P.E. kit includes white or red plain T-shirts (not the polo shirt they are wearing all day), black or blue shorts and either trainers or plimsolls. No jewellery should be worn for safety reasons. P.E. is part of the curriculum and it is important for children to have their P.E. kit on the appropriate day. During the summer term we will be enjoying cricket, rounders, tennis, swimming and athletics!
**Please see below for some Post-SATs Bake-off photos. The children worked in teams to choose a theme, then design, make and present cakes for judging. They then enjoyed eating them! Massive thanks to Mrs Watson, who made it all possible!
