English vs Maths
Collect data on three different things.
Present each set of data in a table and then create a graph or chart to show it.

You could use Purple Mash to do this.

You could: count the different coloured cars that pass, go on a wild-life spotting walk, record the temperature each day, record how many pages of your book you read each day, pick 6 different words from a page in your book and see how many times they appear on two pages, tally how many times different letters appear in your spelling words . . .

Write your own creation story.

Read a version of the creation story from a religion or ask someone to tell it to you. Think about what you would put in the world if you were creating it. This should be sensible and NOT an amusement park. What would you choose and why?

Write your own creation story to explain how you would create your world.

Key Stage 2 Interim Assessment Framework

When the new National Curriculum was introduced, the expected standards for each year group was raised. This means that each year the expectations for the children reaching the end of a key stage will rise year on year. At the end of each key stage your child's class teacher will use the Interim Teacher Assessment Framework (ITAFs) to assess each child. Where as in the past your child would need to have met most of the criteria, your child will now have to have met each of the statements to be assessed as having met the expected standard.

In Year 6, the children will also sit their SATs, in Reading, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and Maths in May, with their writing being assessed over the year.
