This week in Belted Galloway class
This week is the final week before the Year 6 children take their SATs tests, so much of what we will be doing this week will focus around revision in order to keep the children's confidence levels high. They will have the chance to speak to the adults in the class about any aspects of their work that is troubling them, as well as working in pairs to solve a wide range of problems.
We will be starting our new class novel, 'Running on Empty', this week, which is a significant departure from previous books we have looked at both in the subject matter and the way it is written. It centres around an 11 year old boy whose parents both have learning difficulties, and it will provide the basis for lots of PSHCE work as well and opportunities to develop reading and writing skills.
