The Daily Mile


Starting on our very first week in Year 6, we are embarking on a new challenge - The Daily Mile! The aim of the daily mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children. We'll be doing our mile in the morning and we've already found that some physical exercise helps wake us up and get us ready to face our challenging Year 6 curriculum.

We've completed our first timed brisk walk today around the perimeter of the school and we're hoping to improve our time throughout the term...

We've been putting our new, more efficient multiplication methods to the test this morning with a multi-step problem treasure hunt. It's helping us to practice long multiplication and solve problems at the same time! 

A visit from the Fire Service...

We were lucky enough to enjoy a visit from Firefighters from Mosley today who told us all about keeping safe at Halloween and on Bonfire Night.

We also got to try some of their kit on - it was unbelievably heavy and stunk of smoke!

We had lots of fun this morning solving riddles and locating maths problems. We ventured beyond the classroom to find the questions and collect the letters that would spell Miss Jarman's mystery word. The problems really put our mathematical calculation skills to the test but we managed to find the word by the end of the lesson - it was CHEWBACCA, just in case you were wondering!
