Information and Reminders

Well done to all FOBISIA athletes, who represented the school with such energy and enthusiasm in competition last week. The event was a huge success, as the school came together so well in unison to make such a large project possible. It was so inspiring to see so many Year 6 students striving to achieve personal and collective success in athletics, football and T-ball. It was heartening to know that every student earned a medal, while some took home as many as twelve!

Preparation for SATs will include some revision lessons in this short week of three days, before the tests begin on Monday 5th June. Students need not worry about the procedure or outcome of the tests; their only objective is to try their best. These exams are a necessary step in students’ education as they finish Primary school. It serves as good practice for tests of increasing importance later in school, and also a way for the school to check the success of our teaching and learning approaches.

Practice for the KS2 production ‘Porridge’ will increase as we approach the performance dates on the 14th and 15th of June. Rehearsal will provide a nice respite from the SATs for students. We have learned a lot from the visit of Colby Chambers, a Juilliard alumni, who visited school to help us on Tuesday.

Please be reminded to check your email inbox or Class Dojo to find information about the friendship choices for next year’s class grouping. Return to your class teacher as soon as possible to ensure satisfactory choices for all concerned. Thanks.

Yearbooks are now available to order. Please complete the slip sent out on Class Dojo or Mailchimp, and return to the Uniform Shop along with the correct amount of money. Please order by Friday 2nd June.

English

In English, we will begin to study the George Orwell classic ‘Animal Farm’, which provides an excellent companion to our new Topic unit about government. Students will learn to track the characters and plot events, while considering the impact of the choices of leadership within the novella. Students will also learn to predict the future events by applying their knowledge of characters. In SPAG we will review content based on the students’ preferences.

 

Maths

In maths, we will review areas chosen by students, which will include the conversion of fractions into percentages and decimals. Students have also requested to revisit the order of operations, ratio, and volume of 3d shapes. Arithmetic also serves as a large component of the SAT papers, so we will maintain fluency in mental and written methods.

 

Topic

We will start our final Topic of Primary school – ‘Champions for Change’, which is based upon governments and leadership. We will begin by studying the process of elections and how political parties are formed and evolve for a range of reasons. Students will be asked to research a famous leader from their home country or another.
