It was a busy day in Year Six today. The morning began with the children using their Maths lessons to add and subtract fractions with improper fractions and mixed numbers before, later in the morning, they used their research about the River Thames in order to write a non-chronological report, including examples of perfect present tenses.
In the KS2 assembly more children were presented with their bronze and silver ‘Reading Champions’ badges before a number of classes went outside onto the playground in order to tie their blue ribbons onto the anti-bullying tree.
There were plenty of proud and eager parents from Year One in school this morning as we held the curriculum meeting for the year group. The parents spent time in the downstairs hall hearing all about how the curriculum is organised and how lessons are planned before they went into the classrooms and took part in a series of fun activities alongside the children. It was a fun and informative morning, thanks to everyone who came along.
In the morning Mr Smith and Mr Dorn supported a group of children from Years Three and Four as they represented the school at the Southend Dodgeball competition. The team played well and came a brilliant second place in the tournament. Well done children, we are proud of you!
