Year 6

Weekly overview

The final week of this term has been a busy one.

We have continued with our SATs preparation; completing our weekly arithmetic paper. We have also looked at the more difficult reasoning questions; understanding the importance of reading questions thoroughly.

We have had a comprehension focus; completing daily short comprehension tasks to improve our retrieval and inference skills.

The Talent Show was a huge success.

Well done to Year 6 for hosting the show with confidence and humour.
