Term 3 has flown by in Birch Class, as we have been immersing ourselves in reading and writing suspense stories. Some of our writers have been so enthused that they have been writing their entries for the 500 word challenge – what a fantastic way to spend a half term, well done year 6!

In mathematics, we have been using ELLI skills to think about ourselves as learners whilst tackling reasoning problems and some juicy algebra! We have been practising being resilient, we have worked together to connect previous and new learning and we have celebrated making mistakes so that we could learn from it. We are so pleased to see the children becoming more reflective and responsible learners.

Birch Class have been setting their devices aside to bury themselves in a few good books this term, in order to complete our reading challenge. They have been set the task of reading Ms Watkins height in books and so far we are up to the waist! Keep up the good reading Year 6s.

Finally, the trip to the Mosque was also a highlight this term where the children asked lots of insightful questions and wrote detailed reports after some further research.
