Spread your wings and soar to success

Welcome to the Super, Sensible Sharks class page. Each week we will update you with what we have been learning and add some pictures too.  Happy reading...

Week 1- autumn 1(W/C: 3/9/18)

This week we took part in baseline tests so our teachers know exactly what we require support with. We all tried our best and started to practise the routines needed for a successful year 6.

Week 2 - W/C: 10/9/18

This week we have started to get our teeth into our class book - The Last Wild by Piers Torday.

We have started to discuss why we think he can hear varmints speaking to him  and what he thinks about Selwyn Stone. Children are generating fantastic ideas and making interesting predictions so far.

In Maths we have been studying the value of digits in numbers with up to 8 digits. We have practised making our own 8 digit numbers in which there are 0 place holders and why these are needed. Open ended tasks are allowing children to really challenge themselves and think outside the box with their answers.

We have been completing our sea creatures display models for our reading area too. These are hung up in our reading area and are looking great!

We also had some special visitors from Warburtons this week. They came in to discuss healthy sandwiches and helped us make our own using a variety of ingredients. This will be linked to healthy eating in our DT sessions in class and we even got to take our sandwiches home along with some free bread.

The residential letter was sent out this week. Please have a read and send back in with your £30 deposit if your child would like to go. It is a new site this year with fantastic outdoor activities to take part in.
