“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela

Sumdog ~ This week the crew will be reminded of their Sumdog log ins and passwords. Sumdog is an online learning platform that we have signed the children up to in order to provide them with valuable maths practice at home. This is a secure site that children can use independently, moving through different maths concepts and tasks and earning rewards. Be sure to ask your child what animal they have become as they move through the challenges! The website and information about it can be found at  http://www.sumdog.com

Term 1 Week 2

This week we have begun to read, ‘The London Eye Mystery’. The children are also learning how to be successful diary writers. 

Term 1 Week 1

What does it mean to learn like a champion?

As a crew, we explored what we already do well and can improve upon. We were inspired by the short film entitled ‘Lessons from Geese’. If you would like to view this for yourself, it’s available on YouTube. I’m sure the children will show you where to find it. We also created our Magna Carta; our class version for the behaviours we will be adhering to throughout the year. Please click the link below to view.

Year 6 Welcome Letter

Welcome to Year Six!

It’s been lovely to welcome all the children back to school as well as meeting some new members of our crew. It doesn’t seem two minutes since the children were starting in reception and here they are embarking on their final year at primary school. Year six is a fantastic year; as well as the curriculum, there are many decisions to make and new opportunities to explore. In year six we have our camp to look forward to, the opportunity to be Parliament leaders, the end of year production and of course SATs. As always, we work really hard to ensure that all the children have the best opportunity possible to be the very best that they can be in all areas of school life. Our mantra with the children is to aim to be better than your best. There is always something new to learn, new to discover. We aim to ensure that we have fun along the way and provide the children with long, lasting memories.

You should have received the Parental Information Sheet already. Further copies are attached on this page. This will hopefully answer many of your questions and give you a clear overview as to what your children will be doing in school. We ask that you support us by ensuring that all home learning is attempted and completed on time and that children have outstanding attendance.

Thank you to those of you who attended our ‘Meet the Teacher’ session and thank you to all for continuing to support your child with their learning. Please remember that we are always able to make arrangements to share your child’s successes and progress with you. We look forward to an exciting year.
