This term’s learning


Come Fly With Me

In Year 6 this week, the children completed their boat advertisements, linked to our text: Shackleton's Journey. They included many features of the text and worked hard to edit and improve their writing, prior to producing a neat copy. With it being Assessment Week, children applied their knowledge of Maths to a range of reasoning problems. Additionally, they completed Reading and SPAG papers, as well as an independent piece of writing, and worked diligently throughout. In the run-up to Easter, we are looking forward to our whole-school walk to St Mary's Church and hopefully some warmer weather over the break.
