A great start to the term with everyone participating in the Y6 intertrust sports morning. In the sessions, everyone got to play football, netball and dodgeball, and compete against the other teams in the trust. We came fourth, and showed fantastic effort and teamwork throughout the morning.
Truly trusted - congratulations to everyone who received their Truly Trusted awards in assembly this month! Your hardwork and fantastic behaviour has really been noted, and you all deserve this special award.
Well done to our Tag Rugby teams competing in Huntingdon at the regional tournament. Our A team came 7th, whilst our B team came 3rd, narrowly missing out on reaching the final by one try! Great work everyone!
Well done to our football teams too, who represented us excellently at the tournaments at Houghton and Crosshall.
We have been working really hard over the past few weeks! In maths, we have been really focussing on our number skills, making sure we have great methods for mental and written addition and subtraction, and can apply this to lots of problems. We have had lots of fun investigating and coming up with some great conjectures.
In English, we have been reading The Adventures of Odysseus, and have written our very own version of Odysseus and the Cyclopes. Some of the stories are incredible, although are rather gruesome!!
We have started an investigation this week into mould growth in science, so keep your eyes peeled for some interesting looking bread in our class!!
Quartz class have had a fantastic start to term. I have been really impressed with everyone's attitudes. determination and work ethic, and I have already seen some super pieces of work.
This week we have been learning more about the Greeks, including reading our new class book, 'The Adventures of Odysseus'. We will very soon have some photos to share of all the hard work, including pictures of the presentations the children gave to the rest of the class about a Greek god.
Everyone has made a fantastic start to year 6 and are showing their desire to learn, their respect of others, and their willingness to 'have a go'.
In the first week of term we have not yet started our full curriculum but have been learning about each other by playing games and interacting with each other. We have also been working hard on our new topic, the Ancient Greeks: we have looked at where the Greeks fit into history; where they lived; their religion; and their number system. Over the term we will learn even more and will be writing story, diaries and reports on the Greeks.
As the oldest children in the school, Year 6 are taking their responsibilities as role models very seriously. They have thought about how to (hopefully) earn their Truly Trusted badges in the coming weeks.
A brilliant start to Year 6. Well done everyone!
