Monday 11th May
A big hello from Mrs Samuels!
Welcome back to another week of home learning.
We understand how difficult it is to learn from home and we want you to know that we are very proud of you all. Although we encourage you to have a go at the learning activities we set, it is completely acceptable that there will be days when you do not feel like doing the tasks we give you AND THAT IS FINE!
All your teachers are really missing you and would love to see any work that you are particularly proud of. Please ask an adult to email it to the office and it will be directed to your teacher. Let us know if you do not want it to appear on the school website blog.
As many of you will realise it is SATS week and we thought it was only right and proper that we set you a test to mark the occasion! You have until Friday to complete it when the answers will be shared. GOOD LUCK!
SATS TEST FOR YEAR 6!
Here is a message for all our Wonderful Year 6s
As SATS week arrives it is not quite the same.
The tests that were printed this year never came,
The displays all still up: walls full of Maths 'rules',
But Year 6 very different, at present, in school.
For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,
For others a sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard in advance of this week,
Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.
Algebra, fractions, the times tables drills,
Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,
Past present, progressive...and all the SPAG terms,
You've practised and mastered them over the years.
Fear not though, the SATS, yes,won't happen this term,
But remember tests don't measure everything you learn,
Primary subjects are varied; you've always tried your best,
And many of those skills that you've gained can't be defined by a test.
So, here at Hardwick and Cambourne Primary School you've made us all so proud,
We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud...
'Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far...
And we don't need a test to see how amazing you are!
Happy Birthday Jamie Borbas! We hope you have a wonderful day with your family.
Over the course of this week we will be following the Oak National Academy (Government suggested) lessons on 'Setting Descriptions'. There will be a Year 5 and Year 6 lesson each day.

If you are finding this tricky try watching this extra video which explains how to do the 'area model' (grid method) in more detail.
Year 6 Daily Maths Task
Please find Summer Term Week 2, Lesson 1 - Angles in special quadrilaterals- on the following link. Watch the video and chose some of the questions to answer. They start easier and then get harder, so choose where you think you should start.
Well done for completing your Maths and English home learning tasks for today!
Here is an optional extra:
Your challenge for this week is to think about how great you are! Us teachers know it, your families know it and we want you to believe in yourselves just as much. Get yourself an old jam jar or cup which you can decorate and make special to you. As the week goes on we want you to fill the jar up with statements about how brilliant you are. The purpose of the jar is to celebrate all your qualities and talents so you can look at them regularly and remind yourself of how marvellous you are! Here are some statements you can finish if you are stuck. Don't forget to ask family and friends for their ideas about you too. Please take a photo of your finished jar and email it to the school office as your teachers would love to see them.
