Another two weeks have flown by in Year 6 as children continue to work hard during lessons - keep this going. I would just like to remind parents of the need to sign reading records on a weekly basis. Finally for this week, many thanks for your generous donations towards Children in Need 2017; there is a separate tab on the class page for you to look at. Have a great weekend everyone!

Eight weeks have now passed in Year 6 and we have now fully settled into all routines, as well as now understanding the demanding expectations of this year. In English, I have noticed a huge improvement in the writing of children in 6R, with both the quality and quantity getting progressively better each week. In maths, we have completed several assessments and it has been clear to see that the arithmetic homework is having a positive impact on this area of the maths curriculum; we persevere with reasoning and children are beginning to use reasoning skills in all areas of maths, including recent topics such as ratio and proportion. In science, we have moved onto our electricity unit and 6R have been making circuits and seeing how switches work. There are many more busy weeks ahead and we look forward to Children in Need on the 17th of this month. Many thanks to parents and carers for your continued support - it has a huge impact on the progress your child makes in school.

Year 6 have been extremely busy over the past few weeks! Firstly, we had a huge week last week as 46 pupils went to North Wales for the residential to Arete Outdoor Education Centre, Llanrug. Whilst there, pupils engaged in a variety of activities and all returned very happily last Friday with a wealth of new experiences behind them. Those children who remained at school took part in some interesting lessons and the feedback from them has been very positive. Finally, I would like to thank all parents & carers for their support with Harvest Festival this year, as we now have lots of food to be sent into the local community.

Our Year 6 pupils have now been back for just under two weeks and are beginning to settle into the routines and expectations in their final year at Peterbrook. We have quickly got into the curriculum and have seen some real positives in terms of enthusiasm and interest. We soon have our trip to Arete Outdoor Education Centre and remind parents that there is a short meeting in the 6R classroom at 3.15pm today. I also look forward to seeing everybody next Tuesday (19th September) at the information evening and will endeavour to keep this class page as relevant and up to date as possible as the year progresses.
