Maths Morning at the Corbet

The children had a fabulous morning at the Corbet with their Maths Leaders hosting a series of math workshops for the children to take part in. They were all so well behaved and participated fully in all the tasks set. Well done team!

Book Fest 2020

Our fabulous group of Reading Leaders have chosen their favourite book which our Book Fest representative, Jo Prosser,  will champion for us in a hope it will now be chosen for this year’s shortlist. The announcement will be made later in the year. We are really proud of how hard this group have worked not only to have read the books in such a short space of time but the mature and detailed way the children have reviewed and discussed the books to help them make their final decision.

All of our Year 6 class will be given the opportunity to read and review the short list after Christmas and vote for their favourite author and book for 2020.

Medicine and Inhalers

Please can you ensure you have completed medical forms and labelled all inhalers/ medicines as we are becoming increasingly aware of more children who are using inhalers that we are unaware of in class. We just want to make sure we are looking after everyone properly and safely.  Thank you.

Shrewsbury BookFest 2020

Following on from the huge success of our creative writing last year, we are very excited to have been chosen as one of 8 schools in Shropshire to be part of the Shropshire Bookfest 2020 shortlisting.  We have been given 10 different books to read and review, before choosing and championing one we feel should be added to this years shortlist for 9-11 year olds. There are 81 titles which have been sent to the organisers this year from different publishers, all wanting a place on our list. Our group of Year 6 children have until half term to read, discuss and choose our favourite book.

Shropshire Bookfest will announce the shortlist in the new year where all of our class will be able to read, review and vote for their favourite book. In April we will be attending The Big Boook Award ceremony at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury with the authors of the shortlisted books where the winning book will be announced. We are hoping to share some our creative writing at the ceremony too.

Past SATs papers

Morning everyone!

Please could we make a polite request that parents do not use any past papers with their children as we use them as part of our assessments throughout the year and want to be able to analyse areas we need to teach, booster or support your child with. We have started our assessment week this week and found several of the children had seen the past papers at home which means their performance cannot be a true reflection of their current individual ability.

If parents are wanting to support their children, there are plenty of books available to work on key skills in the shops or supporting their reading/spelling at home would be sufficient as the curriculum is still being taught.

Music sessions

We all enjoyed experimenting with different rhythmic patterns and timings together as a class and in groups. We are looking forward to changing our compositions into drums next week.

Y6 residential eta

We are on the coach heading home. What an amazing few days with laughter, giggles and memories a plenty! The children have been outstanding and all the staff and instructors have constantly commented on their behaviour, manners and enthusiasm for everything they were offered, experienced and fed!

We are on time and will be with you for the end of the day!
