W/E Friday 22nd January
Despite it being a shorter week than normal due to the INSET day on Wednesday, the children have worked extremely hard this week. In our English lessons, we have been focusing on using ‘Tickled pink’ and ‘Get better green’ to evaluate our letters of complaint against the success criteria we generated. Some of us had the opportunity to share this with year 4 children on Tuesday and Miss Saunders commented on how mature and helpful you were – well done to those involved. In our numeracy this week we have been drawing line graphs as a follow up to our lung capacity investigation and have also looked at identifying trends and patterns in our results and using this to draw conclusions. We would also like to say a big well done to Year 1 for their class assembly earlier – llongyfarchiadau, you were amazing! We are very much looking forward to seeing as many dads, grandads, older brothers or other male members of families in school tomorrow for dad’s day!

W/E Friday 5th February
We have reached the end of yet another busy week in year 6. We first however must say a huge thank you to all the dads, grandads, older brothers and other male family members who made Dad’s day such a huge success last week. The children thoroughly enjoyed your company and engaging in their learning and we sincerely hope that you enjoyed it too!
This week in our numeracy sessions, we have been calculating the mode, median and range of a set of data and then have applied this skill to our science investigation on lung capacity. We have also been looking at algebra this week; calculating simple algebra problems and simplifying algebraic expressions. In our literacy this week, we have been exploring our favorite poems and looking at various poetry genres – On the Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan proved a real hit with the children. We have also explored ‘The Door’ by Miroslav Holub and have written our own versions of this.
