Year 6 – Our first few weeks…

Although we’ve only been back for 3 weeks, we seem to have packed quite a lot into that time!  Here are a few of the things that we’ve been up to…

We have started our first text: it’s a magical tale about a boy who finds a winged creature at the bottom of his garden.  We have yet to discover if this creature is man, beast, angel or a mixture of all three.  The children are already enthralled with the story and are making great progress with their reading already…

Both the Baboons and Dolphins have also started a class reader – both of which are very different but both of which are proving to be very exciting.  Dolphins have started the Young Sherlock thriller Knife Edge whilst Baboons have started Time Travelling with a Hamster.

Reading at home has started well.  We are happy for them to read a wider range of texts at home and we will still acknowledge this so long as it is written into their logs.  Of course, longer novels are great but magazines, newspapers and even websites can all contribute so don’t be shy to jot these down, too.  Google Classroom is up and running, and there some great books available for you to read at home which will add to your enjoyment of Skellig.  Take a look!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on the playground for our Reading Festival – it was such a great day!  The children had the opportunity to work with Chris Connaughton and some of them enjoyed his reading so much that they were able to buy the book, and have it signed by him.  Superb!

Alongside all that excitement around reading, we have been working ‘full steam ahead’ with lots of other subjects and topics as well.   Please ask the children what they have been up to as they have been full of questions and curiosity in our afternoon sessions.

Finally, an important reminder that Secondary School Open Evenings are just around the corner. The children had a really successful morning at Park Community School this week. Park were very impressed with them and they were certainly a credit to Warren Park and themselves.

Upcoming Open Evenings:

Park Community School – Wednesday 29th September 2021 – 18:00-20:00

Havant Academy – Wednesday 6th October 2021 – 17:00-19:00
