We have well and truly been shining our lights today….

Well I have to start by saying how proud I was of the class this morning. Along with other year 6 classes in Lancashire, we shared in worship at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church. We are sharing in the mission to be beacons of light, guiding others to follow Christ’s example. The whole class were so respectful during the Mass and this was followed by a workshop delivered by staff from Castle Rigg. This workshop gave us all the chance to think about how we shine our lights every day to guide others, just like a lighthouse that guides ships in the darkness. I had such a wonderful and reflective morning, and it truly did shine a light on just how wonderful this class is!

Here’s what else we’ve been up to…

EUROPEAN LANGUAGES DAY!! We dressed in the colours of the Polish flag and learnt so much more about the country and the Polish culture. We can even say a few words in Polish too! Of course we also got to sample a popular Polish snack, Paluszki….they were very moreish! It was so wonderful to see the whole school looking so multi-coloured in their attire, in celebration of countries from all over the continent!

In Maths, we have had a huge focus on mental and written subtraction. We are all not becoming increasingly more confident when choosing the most efficient method, whether it be a written method or one we can do in our heads.

In English, we completed our first Independent ‘Big Write’. We planned, drafted and editing a piece of writing inspired by the characters and storyline of Robin Hood, I am looking forward to reading over these amazing pieces of writing over the weekend!


The class have now received usernames and passwords for Bedrock, Sumdog and IXL. I have sent the IXL details home with the class today. If they can just have a go at logging in at home that would be great-just to check it works! They do not need to complete any units at home for IXL just yet.

No Golden or Writing Award winners this week, as were at Mass this morning.

A huge well done to our Head Girl/Boy and Deputy Head Girl/Boy, who lead the Reception welcome assembly on Monday morning. It was their first duty in their roles of responsibility and they did me proud!

Date for the calendar-Thursday 31st October World Maths Day!

Have a wonderful weekend!
