We are now in Spring 2 and Sats are getting closer. The children are working hard and as a result are showing great progress. Thank you to all the adults that were able to make our meeting this week. For those who weren’t able, we have added the short video explanation and the letter that was given out on the parent tab, then ks2 Sats page.
Any further questions please come and talk to the year six staff.
Thanks for your continued support.
Year 6 team.
As part of world book day we dressed up as a character from a book. During the day we also went on a book treasure hunt and tried to use our skills to figure out the title and author. We also enjoyed sharing our books in class, as well as listening to Mr Lancashire read riddles from The Hobbit using the voice of Gollum, which we then had to solve.

Below is an example of Miss Robinson's edited picture:
