On Monday 20th January 2020, Year 6 visited the University of Nottingham. We had two objectives for the day.
The first was to use historical sources to find out about events in the past and how people used to live. We got to write in Latin on a wax plate - just like the Romans. We got to handle Roman pots and we made rubbings from Roman coins. We then found out facts about King George IV, as it is 200 years since he became king. After that we looked at pictures and documents from the archives that showed what life was like in Nottingham in the past. This was very interesting.
In the afternoon, we fulfilled our second objective, to find out about a university. We had a tour of the campus by a student ambassador. They showed us around the different building and explained what it was like to study at a university. We then thought about what we might like to study if we went to university.
All in all, it was a very informative trip and it was very nice to see the campus on a sunny day!
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you and your child had a fun and relaxing summer break. The holidays seem to have flown by! We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Year 6. As I am sure you will be aware, Year 6 is a SATs year, which will require a lot of hard work and self-confidence to overcome. Whilst we will obviously be focussing the majority of our teaching and learning on the tests approaching in May, we will also do our very best to ensure that your child’s year is as relaxing and as fun as we can possibly make it.
It is more important than ever that we keep communication as honest and as open as possible. Even with our best intentions, your child will undoubtedly feel the extra stress and pressure that comes with Year 6. We certainly do! So, if you have any issues or questions, or need some support in how best to help your child, please come in and see us, or make an appointment to do so. If we work as a team, we can ensure that your child gets the success in their SATs that their hard work deserves.
With that in mind, we would like to take this opportunity to refresh your memories about a few routines:
Please continue to support us in the following ways so that we can work together to enable your child to reach their potential:
If you wish to discuss any issues or concerns, or if you simply have a question, please feel free to come and talk to us. Our door is always open.
Mrs Fieldwick, Mrs Sadler and Mr Wright
