Friday 28th June – Last day of school. School finishes at 12:00
This week the children have been working on solving their own problems. With their class teachers they made a list of problems that affect them at home and at school. From there they designed something that would help them to solve their problem. In our Maker sessions with Mr Lowe, the children put their plans into action! It was really good to see the children persevering, problem solving and working collaboratively to make their final products.

How the World Works
Central Idea: People explore the properties of materials to help them design and make.
Next week the children will finish their maker designs and will reflect on their final products using a checklist that was formulated by each class. The checklist will include questions such as; Did you solve your problem? Did your design work? Did you use a suitable material?
Next week in Maths we will be reviewing our maths learning from the year by playing different maths games. The children will also have the opportunity to use the Maths equipment to solve maths problems.
Mathletics: – Please continue to use Mathletics over the Summer break!
This week in reading we have been reflecting on ourselves as readers and thinking about all of the comprehension strategies that we have learnt over the course of the year. Some of the children reflected on their book choices and other children made posters about what makes a good reader.
