Well done and congratulations to our Year 6 children for all their hard work this week (last week) as they completed their SATs papers. Despite a tricky start to the week with the reading paper, the children have shown great determination and really given their all to each test. We are really proud in the manner with which they have approached this week. Year 6, we are very proud of you! Well done!
Next week (this week) we start the first of our GCSE exams for our year 11 students and the exams will run until Friday 16th June. Our Year 11 students have been working incredibly hard over the past months and I wish them all the best in the next coming weeks. We are so proud of your commitment, determination and resilience that you have shown and will show in your exam – be proud of yourselves as much as we are.
Let’s see what some of the classes have been doing starting with Miss Gittin’s class…
“In Science this term, we have been very busy being Plant Detectives! We have been comparing the difference between Wild and Garden plants and whereabouts they grow. We planted our own sunflowers at the start of term and predicted how and if they might grow if we give them water and sunlight. Miss Gittins has planted one too, but hers is in the cupboard with no light and water… we will compare on our last week what the differences are – and why?!
The Children have also enjoyed our “Where is, Paddington?” Topic, where Paddington has visited different landmarks and people in London. We used Clicker to write our own instructions about how to make a marmalade sandwich, (Paddington’s favourite) and all had a try – we decided it was very salty and bitter!
On Wednesdays and Thursdays, we have started a circle time to develop our listening and communication skills. During the past 2 weeks we have focused on teamwork activities, one has been building a den together which required a lot of patience. We are so proud of them all for persevering with a task that they found challenging. Well done Y5/6 RGS!”
Now to Mrs Cowling’s form…
“This month, we have welcomed a new member of the form into the class. The class have been working together to make him feel welcome by including him in class based activities, such as our Friday games morning.
As a form, we are continually pushing our students to engage with one another outside of their phones, with things like board games or problem solving and puzzles in different magazines. Our students continue to grow in confidence with every lesson and have also shown enthusiasm for practical based activities in lessons such as Science, where they have been learning about fermentation.
We are looking forward to the final stages of year 8 and hope to see the next two months of the year in a positive way.”
