Year 6

Year 6 have had a fantastic first week back.  The first day saw 67 adventurous children and adults head off for a week of fun at Osmington Bay.  The children really challenged themselves and did things they did not think were possible.  The activities that the children took part in have given the children more confidence to believe in themselves and, we believe, this will help them to be more resilient in their leraning at school.  The remaining children who stayed at school also had an amazing week.  They challenged themselves with a variety of sports activities and were lucky enough to experience a circus skills day where 'The Greatest Showman' came to Elson Junior School for a day.  Week 2 has seen the children settle into their new classes really well.  In maths lessons we have been securing our place value facts and reasoning about numbers up to 10,000,000 and in English lessons we have been immersing ourselves in a fantastic fiction book called 'Wolf Brother'.

For the rest of the term, the children have been working really hard to consolidate their skills in maths using addition and subtraction as well as further developing their multiplications.  English has been incredibly exciting with us ending our Wolf Brother Topic with a narative recount.  Next term, for our topic, we will be getting ourselves immersed in Greek history.
