Year 6 induction days

Our brand new and shining Year 6’s have been with us here at the Academy yesterday and today.

Arhhh – bless them!

Apart from getting lost in such a large school they have been asessed and have taken part in some example lessons.

For instance in Geography the MRC has been working with year 6 students to find out about countries around the world and have been looking at some basic Information Literacy skills such as using contents, index and scanning for information.

I set them all a challenge to read 6 books over the long summer holidays and promoted the Public Libraries Reading Scheme.

Here are the slides….

Later in the day I give a short presentation to parents at their ‘induction’ – again emphasising the importance to keep reading over the summer, and and few tips on how to support their child to enjoy reading .
