Year 4

This week Year 4 will be taking part in mathematics assessments, their final ones of the year to show what great progress they’ve made. There is no SFA this week so classes will be studying short stories, brushing up on their SPaG and completing  their writing portfolios.
In science they will be continuing with electricity, making electromagnets and discovering how electricity can be used to cover metals with a new metal!

Year 5

This week, Year 5 are looking forward to completing their science learning – exploring materials and their properties.  We will be continuing our learning about shapes and angles ready for our final assessment tests, when we will be able to show our progress over the year.  Our final SFA cycle has now finished, so we are looking forward to completing some writing within our own classes.  We will have P.E. on Monday, so make sure your kit is in school ready.  Children are still expected to be practising their spellings and times tables, as well as reading regularly.  There has been a marked drop in effort in home learning recently, so please can you encourage your child to continue practising at home.  As the beautiful weather continues, please ensure your child has sun cream (applied or to apply), hat and water bottle.

Y6’s Final Week at BSJS

Y6’s Final Week at BSJS

  

This week we have had the opportunity to celebrate our amazing Y6 team of children – from attendance awards to ‘best hair’ awards to pupil of the year awards – each and every child in our three classes was presented with special certificates, trophies, badges and lots more.

We looked back at lots of photographs from when the children were in Y3 and laughed at how much they have changed.

The children performed their end of year production for families, resulting in lots of tears and laughs.

We would like to wish all of our children lots of luck as they move to Wickersley School on Monday, to begin their next chapter.

One of our classes from when they were in Y3…
