Have a lovely weekend,

Term 5, Week 3 Review:

Our first assessment week has gone very well, we have gently looked at the KS2 SATs reading and arithmetic papers. While focusing on our targets we are continually reflecting and ensuring that we make rapid, sustained progress and importantly close gaps in learning. Next week we will be looking at the reasoning papers and GPS - any work you can do over the weekend to help your child prepare would be much appreciated!


In maths we have revising all areas of the curriculum with particular focus on calculation, fractions, shape and angles. During our English sessions we have continued to dive into the wonderful, dangerous and curious world of 'The Arrival' - some truly beautiful creative writing, well done!


We have also completed our current round of Team Challenges: many congratulations to team 'Donkey' - amazing teamwork and so many creative, sporty and academic achievements! smiley


Gentle Reminders: PE Kit should be in school everyday, Home Learning is due every week and every child needs a fully water bottle every day!


Have a lovely weekend,

Term 5, Week 2 Review:

It has been another busy week in Rowan Class, with lots of additional maths revision in preparation for our assessments next week; an introduction to our AMAZING new book The Arrival by Shaun Tan; SO many Team Challenges; arty maths inspired by Kandinsky and so much more!


I have been delighted with Yr 6, their determination and their ambition to always achieve more - we have a very exciting few months ahead of us!


Please use the extra time this Bank Holiday Weekend to focus on your Home Learning Targets, these will help you to further prepare for the assessments next week.


Have a lovely, extended weekend!
