Well you only have one term left of Year 6! How quick is the year passing?
Well done for all you've achieved this term: particularly with your efforts towards the SATs and your inspiring work in arts week this week.
We will have a geography based topic next term, where we will make many links to the Isle of Wight. A letter has gone out today to those coming on the trip with further details, including a kit list.
I hope you can all begin to learn your lines over the half term break, and get familiar with the story of the play.
Have a great break; see you on 3rd June! (Running Club will be on that morning; unfortunately I have had to cancel IntoFilm Club on 4th June).
We are doing some great work to do with our locality, using different media and techniques, to create some inspiring images...
A great start everyone!
This morning we looked at the Fibonacci sequence in a 'trial lesson' for one of my favourite Mathematical websites: YouCubed.
We looked at the sequence and then saw it's relationship to square numbers.
After this we talked about 'the golden ratio' and how it relates to the Ficonacci Sequence. We then looked to see how it was used in nature and we discussed whether the Nautilus (a creature that divides Mathematicians) Shell had a spiral of the 'golden ratio'.
The "golden ratio" is a unique mathematical relationship, and easy to spot in the natural world. ... The golden ratio is about 1.618, and represented by the Greek letter phi.
It was a very interesting lesson and some of us have taken it home to explore further...
Following this morning's Reading Test and inspired by Miss Stoker's recent visit to Finland, the children had the afternoon to focus on their own projects in the Woodland Workshop today. Many of the children were very creative and adventurous with their time...
We hope you enjoyed your session with Mr. Williams this afternoon, which was all based around teamwork.
Longball was a new game to me and one I think we shall play again!
What was your favourite part of the session? Did you learn any new aspects about being part of a team?
This week we have 5 words that all need to be in your writing but they can be in any order. They are:
SALT BROWN MELTED GIRAFFE GREASY
This afternoon we learned a little bit about Darwin and we looked at his discoveries on the Gapalagos Islands...
Some children wanted to bring home some extra little bits of practice material for helping them with their SATs today.
This was mainly in translation of shapes and mean averages in Mathematics...
There maybe a few more opportunities to take things home in the coming days, if they wish to get some extra confidence in the different areas of SATs week.
