A busy half term

A busy half term

I would like to thank year 6 for a terrific half term, they have worked really hard and deserve a break  but if they get bored there’s always reading, x tables and Spag.com to keep them going… 

and to parents / carers thanks for your support over the past few weeks.

What have year 6 been doing?

Well it’s not all English and Maths, here are some of the things we’ve been up to:

  • Trip to Robinwood
  • Afternoon out to the Safety Exhibition at Uppermill Civic Hall
  • A visit from fire officers to talk about keeping safe on bonfire night
  • Theatre production -Mr Shapeshifter
  • Reverend Lindsay to talk about Methodism
  • Mandarin lessons and Chinese paper folding by a visiting teacher from Saddleworth school
  • Weekly PE lessons from Sports Development and a ten week PE module ‘Physical Literacy’ delivered by a specialist teacher from Manchester United

as well as 

Science investigations


and art in th style of Picasso

Maths update

Maths update

Multiplication of fractions e.g. 2/3 x 1/4 = 2/12 or 1/6

(This was only for the children not needing more practice at the earlier work.)

I do think ordering a set of the SATs papers from Miss Light will be useful- extra practice of the standard Year Six work is good for all of our children, including those taking a G.C.S.E.
