Friday 22nd September 2017

We have had a great week this week in Year 6. The children have been continuing their topic of World War 2 and we have ordered the events leading up to World War 2 on a timeline. We have also been working hard with our literacy skills. Today we completed our diary entry as an evacuee and we are so impressed with the high quality of work all the children have produced.

This week Jasmine was our hand writer of the week for her beautiful handwriting. Macey was in the gold book for her great attitude to learning and Shaun was put in the book for his improved attitude this week. Millie also received the dip in the box for her fantastic maths work this week on rounding. Well done to everyone!!

Attendance: 97.7% (Well done Year 6– Let’s keep this up!)

Lateness: This week 2 children were late leading to a loss of 120 minutes which is 2 hours of lost learning. Let’s improve this next week.

Upcoming Events
On Tuesday we will be visiting Eden Camp in York. Children need to be dressed appropriately and wear their red school jumpers. Children must be in school no later than 7.50am as we will be leaving at 8am and we will return for between 4 and 4.30pm. Children can also take spending money, however, this should not be any more than £10.

Next Friday we also have our MacMillan Coffee Afternoon in the hall from 1.30pm. If you would like to donate any cakes, biscuits they can be brought into school by Thursday morning. Children can be collected on Friday for the coffee afternoon by the Year 5/6 exit doors from 1.20pm.

All the children have made a fantastic start to Year 6. We are so impressed at their attitudes and behaviour.

This week we have started reading Goodnight Mr Tom and made predictions about what the novel was going to be about. We have identified what we would like to find out about World War 2 for the start of our new topic. We have also been looking at safety and all of the children have written an explanation text about how they keep safe.

This afternoon we also had a visit from Mrs Scott from Sandhill Academy. She has invited all year 6 children to an open evening on Monday 18th September 6pm-8pm for children and parents to have a look around. There will be ice cream and sweets!

In assembly this week Bobby had the dip out of the box for his fantastic attitude in school. We are very proud of this. Megan was in the gold box for her amazing explanation text about safety and Elisha for her fantastic presentation.

Attendance: 93.7% (This is below our target of 96%. Let’s see if we can get this higher next week)
Lateness: 4 children were late with 66 minutes of learning time lost.

Upcoming Events
We will be visiting Eden Camp on Tuesday 26th September to experience what life was like during World War 2. Please ensure you have signed the consent form and brought this into school with the contribution of £10.

We are also organising Derwent Hill for July 2018. The cost is £121 per child. If your child would like a place, they need to have the letter signed and brought into school by Monday 18th September. A non-refundable deposit will be required at a later date and a letter will go out explaining this.
