This term, the children in both Camelot and Avalon class have really impressed us with their positive attitude towards their learning. They are becoming much more resilient and are taking a real pride in their work. This has been commented on by lots of members of staff. Well done year 6!
In literacy, we are basing our work on Goodnight Mr Tom. We have written diaries, recounts and we are looking forward to writing a persuasive leaflet about Little Weirwold. In numeracy we are working hard on all areas of maths in order to prepare ourselves for the SATS style questions. Please help us by practising your times tables (and related division facts) as much as possible! https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button is a really good website to use for this!

A date for your diary: Year 6 trip to Beaumanor - 22nd February. We are very excited! Pictures to follow after the trip!
PE day is Thursday. Please ensure the children have appropriate kit (white top and dark shorts or trousers) and that they are not wearing jewellery. Outdoor shoes will be necessary very soon as the weather gets nicer!
