Dear parents, We all know how important reading is in terms of developing our vocabulary, understanding of the world, our imaginations and our writing skills. We might know it's good for us but, like exercise, how many of us actually do it?? With the aim of generating a greater love of and excitement in books, please see below our top 100 reads before a child leaves year 6. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry whilst others will make you think about the world around you. We are sure that somewhere on this list will be a book your child won't be able to put down - and if there's more than one then even better! We will be asking your children to choose a book from this list to read for pleasure and to let us know when they have completed it - they can then choose another! Who will (genuinely) read the most on this list? Now it's over to you...Enjoy!

Today 6R practised their rounding and adjusting skills through a game called Four in a Row. There were some tactical strategies applied - Toby! - and this proves maths can be fun!!

21/10/19 Today, 6R investigated the impact of exercise on our bodies by checking our pulse rates at rest, after 1 minute of exercise and then after 2 minutes of exercise. We certainly had fun trying to find our pulses in the first place! This investigation links to our science topic - the circulatory system - where we have recently been learning about the importance of blood as a transport system, and the importance of red blood cells in carrying oxygen to where our bodies need it.

Over the last few days, Year 6 have been considering what constitutes a balanced argument - its features, structure and the language we need to use to both link our paragraphs together, but also how we can link our sentences within a paragraph to form a cohesive piece of writing. To aid our understanding, we conducted a class debate based on a question linked to our class text, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - Should demi-gods be admitted to Glebe Primary School?. Below are some photos that were taken during the debate.

On Monday 30th September, Year 6 got the coach to Rayleigh Megazone to take part in workshops designed to keep them safe. The pupils were organised into 3 groups and rotatated through the topics, which included: The different types of relationships we form during our lives from family to friends to relationships and what good relationships 'look like' Fire Safety Gangs and what does this term mean It was a very useful and informative afternoon and all pupils who attended will be given a certificate for taking part.

23.09.19 Today year 6 were practising their balances during PE. First of all we tried balancing on both feet with our eyes closed and were surprised to find how much we wobbled! We then moved on to finding separate balances we could do, working with a partner to see how these separate ones could be joined together. We will be developing these balances more next week.

10th September 2019 - Year 6 have started their maths learning this year recapping place value. We have looked at the value of digits within a number up to 10,000,000 and today we were working with number lines to recognise how numbers relate to each other and how they can be compared.
