See you on Wednesday!
Mrs de B
Here are some photos from the Revision launch earlier this week. We were joined by Ellie and Ian from Abbey fields who talked about their experiences and offered advice in the lead up to SATs.
Please see the note below posted on Mr Prosser’s blog which contains some important information…
A very successful week back at Simon de Senlis following half term.
Each child received books for revision; they were very excited to receive them! Most children have already got into them completing many exercises – I am very impressed.
For your key skills this week, I want you to get into these books and practise some different skills and develop your understanding around areas that you want to – this is your responsibility. Recording this is tricky so I would like you to bring them in and show me what you have completed at one point before Wednesday. By all means, record these in your reading records but I still want to see some reading of non-fiction or fiction texts taking place and recorded.
Next week during every lunch the Sandpit will be open to Year Six children to use for their revision. You can organise this with your friends but it will be used wisely and responsibly.
This Monday (29th), Dave, the Rainforest Man, is coming in! It should be a very exciting day and we should learn a lot about the rainforest.
We have discussed a few times the timetable for the next seven weeks of learning; I have emailed this to all individuals in Year Six. It may change as we go along but we will discuss this with you. This gives you an idea of what content is coming up. Please be aware that the maths column is for Miss Coade and Mr Prosser’s maths groups.
Last Tuesday, Year 6 attended the production of Little Shop of Horrors at Abbeyfields school. It was a real treat and we couldn’t stop talking about it on the way back to Simon de Senlis!
Task: For your blogging task this week, I would like you to write a review on the show, commenting on what you liked about it. Consider the perfectly timed delivery of the lines, the pitch perfect singing of the songs throughout and the detailed sets which transported you to another world. Remember your writing targets!
This is the tree classification resource we will be using in our science lesson on Wednesday 3rd February.
See you tomorrow.
