Welcome Back 6S!
Friday 12th March |
It’s been so lovely having 6S back together again! The children came in with such big smiles on Monday and their positivity and enthusiasm has continued all week. I’ve been really impressed with how quickly the children have got back into the swing of lessons in the classroom and with the work they have produced this week. Seeing the children playing together at playtimes has been wonderful; we’ve even had some sunshine to cheer us all up even more!
In English this week, the children wrote diary entries about one of the chapters in Wonder from the point of view of August, Jack Will, Julian or Mum. The children put a lot of effort into this task and I was reassured to see that they had not forgotten how to write on paper! In fact, the children showed that they had not forgotten any of their Year 6 writing skills; they thought carefully about their punctuation, sentence structure and how they could edit and improve their work.
In PSHE with Mrs Swindlehurst, the children did some work around respect, tying in with our school rules: Ready, Respectful, Kind. The children thought carefully about this and, following the lesson, some children have made a particular effort to be even kinder and more respectful than usual! Mrs Swindlehurst was particularly impressed with Ethan’s poem from this lesson:
In Maths, the children have been working on finding the perimeter and area of rectilinear shapes. Being back in the classroom together, we have been able to do some great problem solving activities and I have been really pleased with the children’s determination, perseverance and resilience in these lessons.
Special Mentions this week went to Alex and Phoebe and the 6S winner of our World Book Day competition was Alice! Well done!
We are not setting any homework this week, but it would be a good idea to try to catch up on your Mathletics assignments if you know you have some still to complete.
Have a brilliant weekend everyone and I will look forward to seeing you all again on Monday!
