Weekly Update

Friday 21st January

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

A huge thank you to all the children for their hard work and resilience during a difficult week. We understand that some children cope with SATS easier than others, we are all very proud with how the children have conducted themselves.

 

Our learning next week:

In maths, we will continue our work on percentages. We have not finished this unit of work due to the impact of SATS on the timetable. We will learn how to find a percentage of an amount, look at percentage change and finally use percentage to compare amounts.

In English, we will plan a balanced argument on whether Landfill should leave the Hinterlands. Our protagonist has never known the real world, the children will discuss the reasons for and against Landfill setting out on his own adventure.

In foundation, we will be learning about sweat shops. The children will look at the negative and positive aspects of such a workplace.

 

A few notices:

Mock SATS – we will be returning the children’s papers to them later in the week. Please consider that the children are not at the end of their academic journey and therefore there are aspects of the papers that children have not yet learnt.

Boosters – we will be starting booster sessions in the afternoons to further support our children with their core subjects. All children will partake in additional maths and reading, these will be revision based and purely to secure understanding from previous learning. Short booster sessions of around 30 minutes will take place 3 or 4 times a week. On top of this, we have identified some children that will work alongside teachers in a small group out of the classroom, focusing on maths and writing. We will be allowing the children brain breaks in the afternoon and time outside with their friends to reward their hard work. These boosters will be reviewed frequently and the groups are flexible depending on progress made.

Library books – we still have a few overdue library books in Year 6, please could you have a look for any books that need to be returned.

SATS evening – Year 6 will be hosting a virtual SATS evening for parents and carers, more communication will be sent out in in the upcoming weeks.

Many thanks,
