Welcome to Hornbeam's web page Updated Friday 15th October
With one week to go before half term there is no sign of slowing these children down. Year 6 performed amazingly in their role as guides on Tuesday during our open day. We received a lot of positive feedback about their abilities, knowledge and manners. We should all be very proud of them!
*TUESDAY* Swimming lessons - don't forget your kit!
*HOMEWORK UPDATE* I offer my sincere apologies, the homework and topic letter should have come out the week I was ill and upon my return I was focused on ensuring I knew where the children had got to with their learning. They are NOT expected to bring in a project piece of work next week as it would be unfair to expect it from them. If they have completed a piece they are welcome to bring it in from Monday.
This week we started a new story - The Jamie Drake Equation - by Christopher Edge. It is a story told from the point of view of a year 6 boy whose father is on a mission in space aboard the ISS. We are using this to develop our use of tier 2 and 3 words and will apply them to write a first person diary entry about life in space.
the children have had to use a range of mathematical vocabulary this week, each word having its own specific meaning which are also accompanied by different methods. Factors, Multiples, Prime, Inverse - these can be confusing but the children have all showed themselves to be resilient learners and have done their best with the challenges they have been set.
