A message for Y6 from Miss McTernan

FOR YEAR 6…

Today is the day that SATs would have started, the classroom set up and the tables all parted. The rules on the board, the display walls all covered, your workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard. Instead you are home, you’re doing your bit, protecting your families from getting sick. It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see, being apart of History.

You’ve all worked so hard, you should be so proud, you’ve practised your SPAG and times tables out loud. You’ve learnt algebra to the Nth degree, and now the tests will no longer be. Some may be sad that they can’t take the tests, ‘Hip hip hooray’, I’ve no doubt said the rest.

Whilst the tests are on hold and you stay home this term, remember the tests can’t measure everything you learn. And I don’t need SATs results to tell me how hard you have worked, it’s easy to see, ‘Lockdown’ Year 6, let me shout it out loud, you’ve made all your teachers so very proud.

So please continue to learn, fill that brain up full, and remember, we think you’re wonderful!

Miss McTernan, Mrs Tibbs and all the staff xxx

Making Sets

Making Sets

Reception have enjoyed their early maths lessons inspired by ‘Big Ideas in Early Mathematics’. They have been using lots of mathematical vocabulary and have partaken in some critical thinking to sort objects (and themselves!) into sets. The children enjoyed taking turns to sort by their own criteria. The rest of the class needed to identify… Continue Reading
