Welcome Cassatt Class 2018-19

Ms Barker

(Year Six)

We have made a brilliant start to the school year with our first two whole school Learning Journey themes of 'New Beginnings' and 'Red' and now we have just started our new Learning Journey 'Brilliant Biology'.  See the gallery section of the school website to view some great photographs from across the school. 

AUTUMN TERM UPDATES

Secondary School Transfer Deadline - 31st October 2018 - I know Ms Shaw has already met with you all to remind you about the application that needs to be made to the Local Authority by 31st October for your child's place in secondary school next year.  It's important you attend as many open evenings as possible before you make your choice.  I have attached a list of Haringey school open days at the bottom of this page. 

 

In terms of our learning the big focus this year is preparing all the children in Year Six for secondary school.  Talking to them lots about taking personal responsiblity and getting them ready for independant style of learning is what they will need for next year.

Our Year Six Learning Journey now takes us off in a scientific direction for about four weeks and we explore 'Brilliant Biology'.  This is based around exploring how animals have adapted to suit their environment and Darwin's theory of natural selection. Our WOW lesson at the start of the Learning Journey will give the children some ideas and inspiration. 

The next short Learning Journey which will start at the beginning of November will have History related theme and is called 'The Brith of Britain'.  This of course will start with a brainstorming activity with the children to see what direction our learning will take! I suspect we may look more closely at evolution of Britain, Battles, significant events and probably something gruesome!

The final Learning Journey of the Autumn Term will be 'Children's Choice'.  I can't wait to see what they decide to learn about.

Guidance for Home Learning:

Reading: We ask parents to read with children every evening for 15 minutes - reading is the most important and valuable thing you can do with your child are this stage of their learning. You may think they can read fluently and no longer need to read with you, however checking comprehension is so important at this stage.  Listening to them read and checking they understand all the words they have read.

MyMaths: Each week children will be given Maths homework using an online system called Mymaths. Children have their own login and should complete the online homework set by the teachers. They can have several attempts at the homework and also watch a follow up lesson if they need additional support. Mental maths will be key to ensuring a good result in their SATs test - so please make sure your child does their maths homework every week and that they know their timestables.
