A very busy week for year 6 – as always!
This week saw many of our children taking up the tutoring and challenge of ‘Bikeability’. Every day this week, groups have gone out on the roads with instructors to test out skills of concentration, observation and correct road practice. We are proud to say that most of our children achieved both level 1 and 2 in road safety. Hooray!
Also this week the children have designed, built and decorated their own book corner. The theme: football and fairies – which is surprising complementary! You have to see it to believe it!
Maths had our children scratching their heads with problem solving. The determination was evident in the classroom, as one by one they worked it out. I was so proud of their perseverance and dedication to the task. I, as a teacher, will never get fed up of that ‘lightbulb’ moment as things come together and understanding dawns –priceless!
English continued with Roald Dahl’s story Esio Trot. The children, following the visit from George the tortoise, received a letter from George’s owner, Miss Duffy. She explained how she was going to be away for six weeks and that a neighbour kindly said she would look after George but would need clear care instructions. The children’s task is to provide a tortoise care leaflet.
Finally, at the end of the day the children made paper aeroplanes to see which one went the furthest. This follows on from Mrs Djora’s Monday assembly about aiming high and reaching for targets.
A great week for us all. Have a great weekend.
Rest, Relax and Read
