Welcome back!

First of all, the Year 6 team would like to thank you for your kind gifts and cards at the end of last year. We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break and a great start to 2019.

What a start we’ve had! On Tuesday the children returned to a crime scene on Alban City School premises. Electrical debris and a mysterious blue liquid were discovered, hidden under branches and foliage. The children were asked to write up a forensic report, detailing the surrounding scene and any evidence recovered. An appeal was made and a witness did come forward, Mrs Smith, giving the children an account of what she saw that morning. Today we were visited by Bill Wyoming from the FBI who performed an autopsy of the supernatural being which had been discovered in St Albans town centre. Year 6 were given the opportunity to take notes and ask questions relevant regarding the alien.

In Maths we consolidated our understanding of BODMAS and began applying algebraic equations to number problems. This will continue next week.

CGP books have not been marked this week to allow the children to settle back in – the Maths will be expected back on Wednesday and SPaG on Friday. It is really important that these are completed and brought in as it allows the children to review any misconceptions they may have. We thank you for your support in this.
