Have you seen the Kids’ Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites.
You can also vote for your favourites!
Following conversations with many of you during parent consultations, please see the links below.
The CGP website is full of useful revision resources. These are a few that I recommend:
The Complete KS2 Maths SAT Buster Bundle (incl answers)
The Complete KS2 English SP&G SAT Buster Bundle (incl answers)
All of the books can be bought individually but I believe the bundles are very good value!
Mr van der Westhuyzen
This week we have looked at the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.
We completed a quiz to find out what our individual mindsets currently are.
We are looking forward to developing our Growth Mindsets this year!
Why not print out the quiz and find out about your mindset?
Remember... Your mindset is not permanent! Mindsets can change!
We hope you like our new "Andy Warhol" display!
There will be much more for you to see on Wednesday 25th November from 18.00 - 19.00!
We look forward to seeing you then!
Thank you for coming to our class assembly!
We really enjoyed sharing what have been learning with you.
We look forward to seeing you again at Open Evening on the 25th November.
This week Year 6 took part in a county wide pilot scheme.
We invited 12 residents of a local care home to Gade Valley for a cup of tea, some cake and a chat.
We hope to keep up contact with our local community by visiting the care home to sing Christmas carols at the end of this half-term.
Details will follow in due course.
We had a fantastic time at RAF Hendon!
The highlight of our trip was our lesson in the war time classroom.
We completed several activities, including: making a gas mask box, writing with an ink pen and filling in our national identity cards!
Our next English unit will be focussed on journalistic writing and will link to World War 2.
