This half term also brings us to the half way point in Year Six as we approach the second half of the spring term and hopefully some warmer weather will come our way. We are, of course, preparing for SATs in May and the children have focused superbly during our reading and maths booster sessions. Highlights this half term have included:

  • learning about World War Two and a visit from Professor McGinty;
  • PE lessons on seated volleyball as well as competitions outside of school hours in football, netball and athletics;
  • our science unit on electricity, in which we made circuits and learned lots of new information;
  • coding during computing lessons;
  • Young Voices for our choir (which included several Year Six pupils) and
  • Safer Internet Day this week which included a whole school assembly, a visit from a PCSO and classroom activities.

Alongside all of this have been our usual daily routines and I am immensely proud of the effort made by all children so far this year. It's now time for all pupils to have a well earned week off and enjoy the Valentine's Discos if they are attending!

In the blink of an eye, the first term of our Year Six pupils' final year at Peterbrook is over and what a term it has been! From dealing with expectations early in the term to a fantastic residential in September/October, we have all enjoyed a thoroughly productive four months. There will always be challenges: writing at length, new maths concepts, different science topics etc. but as we reach Christmas, the overriding feeling is one of pride at how far our children have come in a relatively short space of time. We have made the decision to not set any homework over Christmas as we feel that it is important for them to spend the time with friends and relatives, enjoy a break from the daily challenges of the classroom and allow themselves to become involved in all festivities. Of course, January will soon come around and the usual routines will be back in place but until then, enjoy two weeks of rest and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As I write this, I think about the past 8 and a half school weeks and the incredible amount 6R have managed to achieve in that time. We have been exceptionally busy but it's to the children's immense credit that they have taken to Year Six so quickly and managed the expectations that come with it! Of course, it's not all been hard work and we've had some fun along the way! This was particularly the case during our residential to Llanrug, Snowdonia at the end of September when our pupils embraced each challenge and made new friendships at the same time. Of course, we have achieved a lot in every subject, including lots of writing on a range of subjects, various topics covered in maths (with place value, four operations and fractions being our main priorities to date) and some new information learned in history, geography, music, science, PSHE and French. I will update this page more regularly with updates but I would like to thank all parents and carers for your support with your children's education, for helping to maintain positive home-school links during our recent parents' evenings and for supporting our whole school community at events such as the PTFA Bonfire Night this Friday and I hope to see lots of you there.
