And they say it will snow by the end of October...

A big well done for the Year 6 children for just having survived the blistering heat this week in both Year 6 classrooms! Despite the warm conditions, the children still managed to work very hard and produce some excellent writing. I bet some of you can't wait to have a look at their biographies. A few children have asked if they could take their work home. Rest assured. Next week, we will try to find some time to type the biographies in class so that these can be printed, and taken home.

This week also included our yearly European Day of Languages, which also went very well. Elm had a go making an Atomium and learnt lots about their teacher's home country; whilst Elder explored Denmark and it's wonderful culture.

On top of all that, the children have also been looking at gravity, and the difference between weight and mass. It's always nice to work out how much we would weigh on Pluto... ;)

Finally, another gentle reminder about pencil cases. Please make sure the children have pencils, pens, rubbers, glue sticks etc. Quite a few have been asking for pens and pencils this week and we are running short of resources. Many thanks for your support.

The Maths homework is on Sam Learning again this week. Please remind your children we expect them to spend no more than 30 minutes, even if it means they can't complete their task. Any additional time spent is optional.

That's it from the Year 6 team.

Enjoy the sun this weekend!
