Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Year Six: Forgiveness
The Year Six children are growing up quickly and are getting ready for life away from Sherrier School. As a school we care about the "whole child", not just their academic success and so keen to see them flourish in all areas of their lives. As they grow up we recognise that the value of "forgiveness" will be key as they build relationships with others. So as a year group we will be ambassador for the christian value, "forgiveness." Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to show forgiveness in class, on the playground and at home and encourage others to do the same! If your child impresses you with how forgiving they are at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
Themes we will be thinking about
• Saying sorry and being repentant
• Showing remorse and making amends
• Forgiving and forgetting
• Letting someone off - is that fair?
• Remaking a broken relationship/friendship
• Barriers to forgiving another
• The cost of forgiveness
• Is there a limit to forgiveness?
• Forgiveness and justice
• The fruit of forgiveness
There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.

Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.

This term children are reading the first instalment of this fantastic spy series! They are getting use to interpreting what the author means by the specific actions the characters are saying/doing.
This half term, we will be learning efficient written methods for the four operations and looking at problem solving. When you see a calculation make sure you know whether you'd work it out mentally, with jotting or with a written method. How would you work out 40x60?
Practising your times-tables will help with mental calculation needed to succeed in Maths. Percentages, fractions, decimals and ratio will all be much simpler once you know all your times tables. If you would like to practise the X-Factor sheets, please visit the Maths page.
Throughout this term, we will be writing a narrative. We are basing our story on the book 'The Arrival'. It will also link to our Philosophy and Connected Curriculum topic.
