Celebration of Work
Year 6 have been working hard since their return to school with their latest round of assessments. Once again they have faced these with incredible perseverance and maturity. For this they all received this week's perseverance certificate to show them how proud I am of them. Keep up the good work, 6P.
However it has not all been hard work and we also had a lot of fun exploring gears in science. Have a look at some of our work!
In Year 6, we have been working really hard, both in school and on our Home Learning. We have begun a really exciting new piece of writing, where we are using our most sophisticated vocabulary to describe a mountain scene. We look forward to sharing out finished writing with you when we return to school. We are continuing to read our class reader 'Floodland' by Marcus Sedgewick and in Maths we are using our time at home to revisit some of the areas we have found trickier and hopefully put these final issues to rest.
Stay safe everyone and hope to see you back in the classroom soon.
This week, Year 6 have been focusing on Black History Month and also sitting their Kent entrance exams for Grammar school. In both cases they have shown a maturity and sensitivity which they can be very proud of. Well done to all of them. Below is some of the art work which the children produced in the style of some Black British artists such as Lynetter Yiadom-Boakye and Tam Joseph. I hope you like them.
Well done to all of Year 6 who persevered with their tests and did themselves proud, despite all of the trials they have had to face over the last 6 months. They have also shown real eagerness to explore their new topic of Raging Rivers and Cool Coasts and have proved to be very passionate about the issues facing our rivers and oceans. I think we have some future naturalists and eco warriors amongst them.
Year 6 have coped well with the challenges of settling back into school and have shown a keen interest in our new class reading book - Floodland. They have also, as always, proven that they have a keen interest and passion for learning and understanding environmental issues which affect our planet. I am sure that they are going to really enjoy our work on Raging Rivers and Cool Coasts. Keep up the hard work Year 6.
