Year 5/6

This week Year 5/6 have been learning about shadows in science and conducting experiments to see whether our predictions were correct.

The children have also been creating a presentation about Redcar Illuminations as well as making stained glass and glitter stars for the church at Christmas.

We enjoyed helping the school decorate the main Christmas tree in the hall and have our own in class too (although we also appear to have a naughty elf!)

Shine like a Star

This week’s Shine like a Star has been to show your marvellous manners.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Practicing times tables is so important in improving maths and is a huge part of number work from Year 2 upwards. Please encourage your child to use their account to get as fast as they can which will help them be able to apply their knowledge to different areas of maths.

Congratulations to the highest coin collectors this week!
