Year 5 and 6 Summer Homework

This summer, we would love for you to have a go at some of these activities:

  • Go to the library and join the summer reading challenge.
  • Bake a cake with someone to practise measuring.
  • Learn to tell the time on different clocks.
  • Do lots of different sporting activities.

And then… bring in a photo or blurb to tell us about your summer!

Enjoy the holidays!

From all the Year 5 and 6 Team

Maths investigations!

Today Year 6 have been working together to solve different measure problems.

Here are things we found out…

“We have found that some people’s arm span is the same as their height but this didn’t work for everyone. ”

“We measured the balcony in metres and it is 12.32m but also tried different methods like measuring it with our hands.”

 

 

 

Mathletics Summer Challenge!

Next week there is a Mathletics Summer Challenge, where we compete against other schools to get the most Mathletics points! The competition runs from 25th June – 1st July 2018.

Please encourage your children to get logged on and complete lots of activities on there so that they can gain points for our school (and practise lots of concepts that they’ve learnt this year in school)! We would love to get as many points as possible and get as high up on the schools leader board as we can!

Good luck everyone!

SKIP 2B FIT at Brooklands Farm

Wow! What an amazing and inspirational couple of days working in partnership with SKIP 2B FIT.

All children in our school showed amazing resilience and growth mindset towards improving their own personal bests. We all really enjoyed the motivational competitions between staff and children. Mr Rickett and Mathias are currently our skipping champions – we are looking forward to see if anyone can beat their scores in the future.

 

International Women’s Day in Year 6

We had an amazing day yesterday celebrating International Women’s Day, learning about equality around the world. We have started to create posters and symbols (inspired by the book ‘Malala’s Magic Pencil’) to represent what we want in our own futures.
Learning about the history of equality has encouraged us to have discussions about what we want our world to be like and how we can inspire everyone to be be treated as equals.
We are hoping to finish our posters in the next couple of weeks and want to continue this project looking at different inspirational people throughout the year.
