    Welcome back

    Hope you all had a lovely Easter break, it was nice to not have to think about coordinating conjunctions or multiplying fractions. The next few weeks will involve revising for the SATs at the end of the half term. I am really impressed with the children's attitude to work, especially after a holiday, and it is a real pleasure to sit and watch them work so confidently and like year 6's.

    To the children that are going to the Deep on Thursday, have the most wonderful time and create some wonderful memories :-)

    World Book Day

    Today the children took part in Word Book Day after it was postponed due to the snow a fortnight ago. The children have made a fantastic effort to dress as their favourite book character. As you can see from the picture they even took part in extreme reading.

    Mock SATs

    Hope you all enjoyed the snow. It feels nice to be back at work- cabin fever was setting in.

     This week the children will be doing their mock SATs in preparation for the real thing. This morning the children completed the grammar and spelling paper and I am really impressed with their attitudes. Keep up the good work, and remember how fantastic you all are!

    Be a hobnob!

    We are nearly there.

    Half term is in sight! The children have worked incredibly hard since we came back from the Christmas break and they thoroughly deserve a rest. However, if you have time, testing them on their fraction, decimal and percentage knowledge would be a great help. Here are a few questions to start them off:

    1) 10% of 190

    2) Write 3/5 as a decimal

    3) Write 70% as a fraction

     Thank you
