A beautiful weather day to mark the end of the week.
Thank you for embracing Children in Need by supporting the non-uniform day. I am sure the total raised will be announced online.
We have embarked on some Children In Need mindfulness techniques. This is to combat some stress and anxieties that some children have experienced through the effects of the pandemic. We also had a return of the Joe Wicks workouts with a Children in Need twist. All things that support our well-being.
As always, it has been another busy week in Year 6. We have been continuing with our Greta Thunberg studies in English as we prepare to write our own persuasive speech soon.
In maths, we have been learning division techniques, and discovering some less helpful techniques too. We have also covered factors and multiples and looked at ways to find common factors and multiples.
Spelling homework this week is all about the homophones with words that end in 'ce' or 'se', such as practice and practise. Ask your child to explain the difference. They should talk about how one is a noun and one is a verb. They have written the rule at the top of their sheet. Please spend some time going through them together.
A gentle reminder that the residential deposit is due by the end of next week. Thank you if you have already paid it. For others, it is £50 and can be paid on Parentmail.
We have been learning about Picasso and his cubism style of art work. We have added some quality work to our sketch books and next week we are looking forward to completing our final piece. To view our poppy art from last week, please look under 'Our Curriculum' and find the art gallery Y6 section. You should see the beautifully displayed work created by Y6 which is proudly decorating our cloakroom area.
It certainly has been a beautiful day today. I do hope we have the fortune for this to continue into the weekend. Have a good one,
Miss Studley and Mrs Parker.
