It's been an amazing half term in year 6. So many of the children have come back to school with a 'can do' mind-set. They are showing far more resilience than last year and the work that some of them have put in over the summer holidays is very noticeable, especially when they answer questions. I am hearing much more thorough and thoughtful responses now and the children are able to articulate their understanding well. Thank you for supporting your child's learning at home - it does make difference when we all work together and our expectations are the same.
Mrs Callaghan and I are absolutely over the moon with how many children are now bringing in their reading log every day. Almost everyone in our class will have received their bronze certificate by half term. It is important that the children bring in their logs daily to get into good habits. Secondary school isn't very far away, and that brings added demands, so the more organised the children can be now the better they will settle into a new routine.
Nearly everyone in the class has produced some brilliant project homework. The standard is amazing! It is obvious that the children have spent a long time thinking about their project, designing it, making it and then putting together a presentation. We have been extremely impressed with how well the children can speak about their chosen topic. Thank you, again, for your support.
Year 6 will be holding a Liturgy on Wednesday 27th September at 2.30 pm in the hall. We will be celebrating the life of our class saint - St Vincent de Paul.
Please check the letters section of this class page for the Nethercott kit list.
remember, Nethercott meetings are Tuesday 3rd October at 3.30pm and Tuesday 10th October at 6pm. All welcome.
It's wonderful to be teaching your children again this year and being able to continue the relationships we've already established. Watch this space for this year's class photo!
The year 6 welcome meeting for parents will be held on Friday 15th September straight after school.
Mrs McKnight and Mrs Callaghan.
Mrs Callaghan and I were very impressed with the children's presentations to become the School Council representative for the class. They were very well thought out, with many children showing evidence of research. All children presented their speech confidently and clearly and were able to answer any questions posed.
Well done to Noah and Josie who were chosen by the class.
