What a very busy week in 6S this week; I’m struggling to remember everything!

HOMEWORK:

Lots of revision from the CGP Revision books (BIDMAS please!) as well as a special list:

- Read a good book.
- Go for a walk with your family.
- Eat your favourite meal
- Rest – go to bed a bit earlier each night!
- Have a movie night with your family
- Visit a relative or friend
- Play at a playground
- Listen to music
- Play a sport
- Stretch – do some gymnastics, dance or yoga
- Go on a bike/scooter ride
- Go for a swim
- Cook or make something
- Sing or make music

Tick each activity off as you complete them and then return the sheet to school on Monday 13th May.

In maths this week, we have completed work on angles and circles before looking at some arithmetic revision. Children investigated different polygons this week (pentagons, hexagons, heptagons…) using their understanding of angles in a triangle to help them.

We looked at circles on Tuesday. On Wednesday, we covered the mean average and children enjoyed investigating the average lengths of rivers in England and Wales. On Thursday, we did a large arithmetic hunt around our school grounds. How many out of 35 could you get?

In grammar this week, children have revised prefixes and suffixes as well as looking at parenthesis and its punctuation: brackets, commas and dashes. We also looked at the simple past tense.

Our literacy week has been dominated by a fantastic Spelling Bee! In 6S, the standard was absolutely superb. One semi-final lasted nearly an hour meaning our second semi-final ran into Friday morning – the day of the final! Congratulations to our finalists Jasroop, Izzabelle, Umayyah and Nina; a special well done to the overall winner Nina! Mrs Heap and I had to start looking at Key Stage 3 word lists for even more challenging spellings. A very well done to everyone!

In Science this week, children have looked at mirrors. In music, we continued learning our song of the half-term. In PSHE, we thought about being the same and being different. We also looked at body talk and banned negative comments about how others look in class. I was pleased with how positive and mature the children were during this session. It’s occurred to me that I often write this at the end of the weekly blog – surely this shows how wonderful a group of children 6S are!
