Years 5/6 Week 49 2014

Year 5/6 children running stalls at today's FoBS' Christmas Fayre
This week the children have continued to be a real credit to the school on visits out of school to Martinschule and the Tierpark. The children made friendships with children at Martinschule and gathered valuable information for their persuasive visitor’s leaflet at the Tierpark, which they will be writing next week.

The children have been having lots of fun this week devising scenes for their Christmas production. Thank you for your support with encouraging children to practise song lyrics and lines at home.

In Maths this week, Miss Kinsey’s class have been learning about time intervals and probablility in a pack of cards and regular dice. Mrs Hood’s group have been adding and subtracting fractions this week along with understanding tricky maths vocabulary such as mixed fractions, proper fractions and improper fractions. Miss Graham’s class have also been finishing their topic on fractions and have completed the second half of their recent assessments. 

Due to lack of transportation Y6 were unable to go swimming this week, please see below for revised swimming dates for these children.
