Achievements and Rewards

Each and every person in year 6 has been working extremely hard in class. So every Friday 2-3 pupils get certified with a reward to show they’ve been hard working and made the correct choices throughout the week. The last Friday’s assembly, the certificates in year 6 was given Katie and Amare! Another thing the majority of the class accomplished was their targets they set. 29% of people achieved their goal, 52% nearly achieved their challenge and unfortunately 19% of people had unluckily unachieved their challenge. We’ve now started our new targets for Easter. We can’t wait to see if we achieved them.

 

Maths

In Maths we have been using negative numbers and calculating intervals across zero, such as:

A) 13-20=7
B) 50-25=25

English

In English we have been learning about WWII and War and Peace. As a result of learning about   WWII we’ve started a story called Carries War. We have also been doing a comprehension sheet about the book. Would you like to learn about Carries War?

We have been setting ourselves challenges for us to reach by Christmas:

We have made our goals challenging but we all know we can achieve them. It will be very hard but with encouragement from family and friends we will make it. We will need to work hard and practice a lot. It will take all we have but we won’t give up. 

Children in need Friday donations:

We have raised approximately £150 so far to donate to Children in need. We thank Jayden for organising a cake sale to fundraise even more money for Children in need. We also thank everyone for donating 50p or more to help the children with children that are not as lucky as us.
