Tuesday 20th July
How lovely to see so many of you before you have a well deserved break over the summer before you begin your new exciting adventure at secondary school. I wish you the very best of luck. Thank you for making this Year 6 a very memorable year!
Monday 19th July.
I am really looking forward to Monday where we will share our completed Suffragette letters! The drafts were excellent, well written but also filled with historical information. Year 6 have really excelled with their cross-curricular writing this year.
We will be trying to solve some very challenging maths logics puzzles (just for fun!) and carrying out a debate on whether people take voting for granted nowadays and how to encourage more people to vote.
Tuesday 20th July.
We will be having a film morning and awards ceremony. We will share the fantastic animations you have made (thank you to the children who have already completed theirs and emailed them to me). We have been thinking of awards categories; best science lesson, best art project, best answer to a challenging question etc.
Finally, before we wave you off to your new adventure in secondary school, we shall take a few moments to share what it is we will be taking away from this year and how it will help us.
