Hello folks - well done for all your hard work last half-term and for helping everyone in school to understand more about the real meaning of Easter. We are sure everyone in church will love your beautiful banners too.  

As SATs are due (week beginning May 9) try to find some time to do some practice but remember that like all good KitKats we do need to take a break.  

 

A few notes/reminders for you...

Don't forget Piggy Bank contributions ready for our special additional trips out (hopefully to see "Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat" later in the year at the Liverpool Empire and a restaurant at the end of SATs week). The bank is only open every Friday when you can bring your £1 and save up. 

 

If you need to bring in a mobile phone because you walk to or from school without adults, then you need to bring in a signed form and leave the phone (switched off) in the classroom. 

 

Homework will continue to be given on Fridays to be returned the next Friday.

 

Homework Club runs each Thursday until SATs week, starting straight after school until 4.15p.m.

 

Reading books - it is very important that you read the scheme books - these should be brought in and left in the box just outside the classroom ready to be changed.

 

Well done to the latest members of the class who have earned a book from our special vending machine - let's hope we can continue to give lots of free books away! 

 

Let's get started...

Just a note for parents - the video of my chat at Meet the Teacher can be found on Google Classroom.

 

 

 

   

We have chosen our Bible verse for Year 6 and written our class prayer...

 

 

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5 v.14-16

 

Dear Lord,

While we are here in Year 6, help us be the best that we can be, shining light examples of the Christian values that we know are important here at St.Luke’s Halsall.

Help us to be responsible around school; thankful for what we have and good stewards of your creation.

Amen

We not only need to know how to spell them but we need to know what other words are similar and their meanings so that we can use them in our writing. 
Concentrate on the ones you find most tricky - is there a way you can find to help you remember?
