Home Learning set 9.3.18
This weekend the children need to complete the third test in Set A of their two '10-Minute Tests' book. The children should mark the tests themselves as usual but we will be going through them in class at the beginning of next week. Last week's tests have already been useful in showing where a little more work is needed, which is excellent.
In class this week we will be learning a set of spellings in class for a test on Friday. If you want to practice at home you can!
From the desk of Mr Jarman:
From the joyous chaos of a snow day to the joyous chaos of the finale of our Mini-Enterprise topic- it's all go in year 6 at the moment. This week the children have stepped into the Dragon's Den (or Colston's Cave) to discuss their business models with noted entrepreneur Mr Bell. Although he was very impressed, both with the ideas and the business acumen, I think it was a pretty daunting prospect for some of our young go-getters. With that ordeal over, however, now it's full steam ahead towards our Market Bazaar! We are looking to seeing you there with wallets and purses at the ready!
This weekend sees yours truly lumbering much of the contents of Jarman Towers to the tip. From experience, I know you need to get there early. Besides, where else would you want to be at half past 8 on a Saturday morning, savouring that unique aroma? And when it's done there's always something to look forward to- cleaning out the car! Oh boy!
This clearout is in anticpation of some much needed DIY. As much as I try to insist otherwise, I must admit that there are aspects of the drawing room at JT that are not, in fact, shabby-chic, rather just shabby. And as much as I try to fool myself, even I can see that the black, marble fireplace surround isn't kitsch-cool. It's hideous.
Enjoy your weekend, y'all,

6A Biscuit Bake Off
As a reward for hitting their Golden Ticket target, 6A chose to take part in a 'bake-off' style challenge. All the children seemed to enjoy it immensely and the judges, Mary berry and Paul Hollywood were also very pleased to take part!
