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 .
