Barn Owls

Goodbye Year Six!

 Thank you for all of your lovely cards and presents - your kindness was overwhelming.  It has been a pleasure to teach such a wonderful year group.  We will miss you all - but we hope that you keep in touch.  We send you our very best wishes for a happy and healthy life ahead.  Keep smiling and always try your best.

Barn Owls Update 8th January

We have had a fantastic (and very busy!) start to the term - well done Barn Owls!  In History and Art we are designing our own mythlogical creature for a Top Trump card; in geography we have been locating European countries; in R.E we have started to look at symbols in religion; in maths we have been learning our Roman numerals and negative numbers and in English we have been learning Greek myths.  We have had a focus on prepositions in Grammar and Punctuation and looking at the suffixes -ant/-ance/-ancy in Spelling.

Letters have gone home about non-uniform day, 11+ (Yr5 only) and homework.  These are on the webpage too. 

How you can help at home this week:

  -  Help your child practise their timestables (a great way to do this is by downloading a timestables app to your phone or table).  There is a test every  

     Monday.  There is also an excellent timestables game if you go to the children section of the website.  Click on games, then click on maths.

  - Help  your child find and write words with the suffixes -ant/ance/-ancy.  They will be tested on Wednesday.

  - Encourage them to come up with ideas for this term's homework menu.

  - Read with them. Even though they are getting older it is still good to hear hem read and discuss books with them.
