It has certainly been a very busy week in school and out. It feels like with everything we take off our list of things to do, another 2 jobs are added. We still have lots of fun things to get sorted before the end of term for you but more of that next week. We have made lots of progress with our Theme Parks so today you will be looking at your overall profit for the year and finding out if you can make improvements or invest in more rides. We have nearly completed our Guided Reading books in school so if you are at home, just try to fit in some reading today. Our discussions on Growing and Changing have been really interesting - lots of giggles but some very mature questions and queries. We hope that you go through the powerpoints and I have also found Ask Lara - we always watch these in year 6 and make us laugh but the messages are really clear so watch if you can.
Maths: Theme Park Maths
PSHE - Growing and Changing Lesson 1
Physical changes to our body during puberty
Powerpoints to be added - we have continued to have a problem uploading this to the website. Please access this through the separate email that was sent out to parents last Friday afternoon (19th June). Apologies

If this is too difficult to do, just an email would be appreciated. We have had an update from Miss Vernon on each year's achievements on Mathletics. It is great that year 6 have used it so much.
