Welcome to out first blog of the new school year!  This half term, Year 6 have been learning about rivers.  We have developed our understanding of key geographical vocabulary such as tributary, source, mouth and meander and we have created our own models of a river system labelled accordingly,  In Maths, we have expanded our understanding of place value and used this to help us grasp formal written methods for working out addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions.  These are vital skills that children must be secure in to achieve the expected standard in the subject at the end of the year so you will, no doubt, see your children working on these during homework assignments.  Our trip to Grafham Water was a huge success, with so many people learning new skills, overcoming fears and becoming more and more independent.  Here are some photos of our time there.
