SATs week Monday 14th-Thursday 17th May.

 

Just a few reminders:

  • Please ensure your child is in school every day of SATs week- if they miss any of the tests, then this will affect their overall levels.
  • It is vital that your child is in school on time each morning as it is very unsettling for them if they are late.
  • Please make the time leading up to SATs week relaxing, with lots of early nights!
  • All the hard work has been done so please reassure your child that this testing week is nothing to worry over and that it is the time for them to show off everything they have learnt.

Below is the SATs timetable for your information.

Power Of Reading (January 2018)

 

Using the fantastic 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Anne Duffy, we have responded to the text in a variety of different ways: short burst writing, poetry, art, drama and text marking of language.  It has been a wonderfully engaging 'hook' into our Talk for Writing unit so far! 

Maths Mastery-division (January 2018)

 

Children explore division with concrete apparatus, before moving on to pictorial representations, informal and formal methods. Our understanding has improved immensely. 

Food Technology Lessons with Apple of my Eye (January 2018)

 

Lesson 1-children learn where in the world food comes from, and taste a variety of unusual foods.

 

Lesson 2-After learning about the different food groups, and the safest way to chop ingredients, the children prepare and cook a 'healthy and balanced' Thai green curry! 

Victorian Christmas at Croxteth Hall (December 2017)

A fantastic 'hook' into our Victorian Liverpool History topic. What an insight this was into what life would have been like for both rich and poor during this era. 

Cinema visit (December 2017)

One Literacy group visit the cinema to watch 'Wonder'. After reading R. J. Palacio's book, and responding to it in many ways, we discuss 'Are books better than films?'
