Can you believe September is almost over?!
We are almost in October and you have all made a promising start to Year 6.
Very well done for all you have achieved this week - the unknown angle work has been a real highlight for me this week: you haven't given up and you have applied what you know to solve the problems that I have put in front of you.
You have accomplished a lot on a sporting front this week too, with rugby and running (from Tirlebrook10 to Running Club to the World Marathon Challenge to Cross Country!) Well done to all the cross country runners yesterday too - there is information about this going on the school blog!
Enjoy your weekend.
We used colour and visualisation to show our independent understanding of unknown angles in shapes.
National Fitness Day encourages the nation to celebrate the fun of fitness and physical activity across the UK.
It is also a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles.
We have been learning about the Blitz recently and talked about the German Airforce during World War 2 (Luftwaffe).
We also discussed about the RAF and the Spitfire in particular. The Spitfire is the most famous plane of World War Two. Its groundbreaking design and superior specifications gave the British a decisive advantage fighting the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain.
We now have lots of spitfires that the children have made flying at the back of our classroom!

We had a great talk from Julia today about decisions.
We learned about legal and illegal drugs and the effects they can have on the rest of our lives.
The children responded very maturely and were praised by Julia afterwards for their exemplary attitude - well done Elder Tree Class!
Look forward to playing some of you between 19:15 & 19:45 this evening.
If parents can let me know either written on paper or verbally if their child will be attending one of the Tewkesbury School Open Mornings then I can make sure the correct attendance codes are recorded in school.
It was great to have SO MANY comments last week from all over the world... (Well done Elder!)
This week we are going for five words. They must all be in your writing but can be in any order. The key is to plan beforehand so you get them all in and it tells a story.
The words are:
Professor Crocodile Purple Twisted Difficult
Obviously, your story will need a character and I think these words give you a couple to choose from!
This afternoon we all got the chance to participate in a match; referee and practise our passing skills.
We are developing an awareness of strategy to know when and how to pass the rugby ball.
What ideas have you got for your warning story? (Remember to follow the underlying pattern that we have been learning about).
Well done on all your research efforts - this is really giving you a more in-depth understanding of World War 2.
We were able to use numicon to consolidate our understanding of algebraic equations today...the class saw the patterns going up in a certain sequence eg. in 3s and then they could see that you needed to add 2 in each 'case', so they could work out 3n+2 or 6n+1.
With so many confident coders in the class we explored a bit of a scratch; the children had some time to create their own projects. They all did a variety of different things from mazes to racing car games to 'chat games'.
What did you create?
