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.
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 .
