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.

Year 6 are now Scientists!
During Science week Year 6 spent time answering the question 'Where do wild plants grow best?' We went outside to complete some sampling activities; looking at how the plant growth differs in different locations around our school. We turned our results into explanation guides becoming scientific writers for the week. It was fantastic to get outside and analyse the space around us.
Thank you for all of your continued support with the new SATs homework. The children are working really hard at home and in school to complete/mark the work set. Please ensure homework is completed and handed in on a Wednesday so we can make sure the new homework goes out on Thursday! See the document below for more information...
If there are any questions about the homework or the content of any of the book please email us or write in your child's Boomerang book.
Thank you for your continued support.
Summer Term 1
During this Summer Term we will spending time looking at a range of different texts leading up to the SATs Assessment Week (beginning the 14th May). We will be answering a range of different question styles; alongside deciding which are the best techniques for us to use to show how fantastic we all are at Reading.
This half term, we will be learning efficient/effective methods to help solve reasoning style questions. The children need to be quick to identify what the question is asking them to do and which calculations they need to complete. Below is a recent question we have tackled together, how would you solve it?
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.
At the start of the Summer Term we are basing our writing on the story 'The Day the Crayons Quit!' Year 6 were shocked to find (after the Easter holidays) that there pencil crayons had chosen to quit after their overuse. We are becoming newspaper journalist to find out exactly what is going on. Hopefully the colour will return to Year 6 soon.
