Class 5/6A News w/e 30th September

Friday 30 September 2022

Another week has flown by in Class 5/6A.  Let’s see what the pupils have been getting up to this week …

Our Writing focus this week has been on effective note taking and using these to create informative summaries.  A whole host of topics were covered in their summaries, ranging from Shrek and Leeds Rhinos, through to the Isle of Arran and The Queen!  It’s been lovely to see the pupils engage enthusiastically with subjects they are so passionate about.

In Topic, we have travelled all the way back to 3,000BCE and explored some of the ancient civilisations that existed at the time, namely the Shang Dynasty, Ancient Sumer and the Indus Valley.  Next stop, Ancient Egypt.  Circle Time has been reintroduced into our weekly timetable and allows the pupils the opportunity to discuss our Living and Learning focus in more depth and share their thoughts on a range of topics.

We are looking forward to welcoming parents to our ‘Watch us while we work’ session on Tuesday morning and be able to see our pupils in action in the classroom.   It’s been very pleasing to see the number of pupils who had completed their reading records this week.  A big well done to pupils and parents for keeping on track with their reading!   Remember to keep working hard on your times tables practice.  If you need access to your TT Rockstars or Numbots account, do let me know and I’ll provide you with login details.

Finally, over to our certificate winners for this week:

Summer (Learning) – Making huge progress towards independent learning in Maths, a brilliant summary on the life of The Queen, and an overall positive attitude.

Emilia (Sport) – Infectious enthusiasm which rubs off on her classmates.  Showing real flair in her volleyball serving and passing.

Amelie (Living and Learning) –    Constantly providing insightful and mature answers in group discussions, and for embracing our Circle Time values.

Have a great weekend!
