Year 6 Maple

News from Maple Class - week ending 22.9.17


We travelled to Thurston this morning for our transition sports activity day. Once again I have been so impressed with the behaviour and attitude of Maple Class on a visit. We all took part and throughout enjoyed ourselves! Well done to those Maples who received goody bags for impressing with their attitude towards challenge!


This week we have elected new school councillors, Tom and Evan, and Eco-councillors, George and Joe. Tomorrow (Friday 22nd) we will be voting for House Captains.


Tomorrow is also our first spelling test of the year. All Maples have a copy of this half term's spelling lists in their planner. Mrs Nicholls will be highlighting the ones that your child has correctly spelt so that you can keep an eye on their accuracy in class. There will also be a Maple Spelling Bee to find the champion speller each week (special prize to be awarded!).


On Monday morning we will be having our next times table test - we have already seen incredible progress from some of our learners. We are working in rapid recall of times table facts up to 12 x 12. The next assessment involved recalling all division facts from these tables. The third and final challenge includes square numbers, roots and a mix of tricky times tables and division questions! (scroll down to download a copy).


We have worked really hard this week, hope you all have a restful weekend,



Best wishes


Gordon Leathers

SATs Parent Information Session

To assist the children in their preparation for the Year 6 SPAG test we thought it might be useful to have a glossary of terms with examples to assist with revision and homework activities.
