It is assessment week for Class 5 and we have been completing the 2017 SATs papers this week, then using iPads to revise our arithmetic and reasoning skills on TT Rockstars, Squeebles and Diagnostic Questions.
All staff are proud of the progress every child as made and their attitude towards their studies!
Class 5 have enjoyed our most recent whole-class guided reading book, 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. We have been refining our inference skills this week, focusing on the part of the text where Joey was sold to the army.
We really empathised with Albert and Joey, and the result was some very meaningful responses!
This week Year 6 have been generating high-level vocabulary, which can be used in our was stories, based upon 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo.
We have thought about the character of Joey the horse, then about the settings encountered during the war.
