Well 6T, we made it! SATs are done and you should be incredibly proud of yourselves. I know Mrs Hoyle, Mrs Harding, Miss Barraclough and I definitely are. You have been the definition of a growth mindset class this week and I am not surprised.
I hope you all took the letter home and read it – I meant every word!Dear 6T
Take a well earned rest, enjoy the hopefully nice weather and we shall see you next week!
Bring on Romans, residential and a really awesome end to your high school experience.

Next week, we start our next topic of the year titled: What the Romans did for us.
What would you like to learn about?
Comment with requests and any great sources of information that you can find.
If you have any Roman books at home, hold on to them for now but we will make use of them later in the term.

Our focus this week has been to finish our work on geometry by recapping coordinates and symmetry. The children need to ensure they’re accurate as it’s a crucial part of geometry work. We have revised fractions including calculating and applying it into some problems.
This video should consolidate these skills:
Homework is to have a relaxing weekend!

This week, we have refined our test skills in a range of activities. The children have answered questions on each of the content domains. The children should be incredibly proud of their progress and the most recent test papers show some fantastic progress across the whole class – cue a really happy teacher!
Our work in grammar and writing have ben to apply some of our skills into descriptive writing based around the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The quality of language in the children’s expanded noun phrases was superb – cue a really happy teacher!
* Samples to follow*
The children have worked incredibly hard over the first two terms of this year and they have made some really amazing progress.
Their homework is to rest over the weekend and enjoy some time with family and friends.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have done lots of PSHCE work on worries. The children all expressed worries they have about the exciting/scary things that are coming up: residential, SATs and moving to high school.
We came out with some key learning:
– Everyone worries and it is completely normal.
– Lots of people have the same worries as you.
– It’s important to express yourself and say when you’re not ok.
Have a look a this video (you may have seen it before) and think about what it means to you.

The children have all been working incredibly hard and we’re pretty much ready for our SATs which will take place from Monday 8th May to Thursday 11th May.
Here is the plan for the week so you can talk about it at home:
- The children will all take their tests in their own classroom with familiar adults.
- 6CH will be supervised by Mr Cooke, Mrs Heap and Mrs Carney with Mrs Gilhooley and Mrs Sloan joining them for a few of the tests.
- 6T will be supervised by Mr Tiffany, Mrs Hoyle and Mrs Harding with Mrs Sloan joining them for one test.
- We are required to cover the displays in the classrooms during the test week.
- We will move the tables so there are two children at each table. We are planning to practise this ahead of time so everyone knows where they will be sitting and what it will be like.
- The children should bring a bottle of fresh water each day.
- The children should bring a snack of their favourite fruit each day.
- Afternoon lessons will be as normal
- Some children will be given additional time for their tests. We had to apply for this on the government SATs website. There are strict requirements including things such as reading speed and writing speed. The children who will receive this have been told and we hope they have told their parents.
- All children must try their best to be on time for school. Please plan to leave home a bit earlier, especially if you tend to get stuck in traffic.
- Children should attend school everyday if at all possible. If your child is genuinely ill, please ring us right away and we can make alternative arrangements.
- A good night’s sleep and healthy meals are key. Please start getting ready now. Try to wind down and move bedtime a bit earlier so the children are able to cope really well.
- If you have any questions, please come in to see us, telephone or send an email.
