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.

Quick note about Caythorpe! Just a reminder to make sure your child has a disposable packed lunch for the bus on Friday (we will be eating lunch as soon as we get to Caythorpe).
Children are to arrive in school at normal time on Friday and will return to Sherrier at around 4pm Monday afternoon. We will post regular updates on Twitter to alert you of any changes to schedule. Please follow: @SherrierY6
All children can come to school in non-school uniform and will register as normal, Friday morning.
If your child is not coming to Caythorpe they can also wear non-school uniform (on Friday and Monday) and should be in school at normal time on both days: they will be working in Foundation Phase.
Parents are invited back to school to see their children leave for Caythorpe at about 10 a.m.
The children loved their time at Caythorpe. Keep an eye on this section when more photos will be added!...

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.
