Y6 G&T Maths and English session

[20 Mar 2018]

Sirius Academy North hosted the annual Y6 Maths and English G&T Challenge today and last Monday. There was an excellent response from local Primary Schools with eight different schools in attendance enabling over 100 pupils the opportunity to develop numeracy and literacy skills. The two sessions are part of a series of similar events that aspires to prepare pupils for their forthcoming SATS.

The morning saw Mrs Anderson and Mr Hostead lead reading and writing tasks that needed amazing team work skills within their tables. The tasks sought to develop inference and use of literacy devices within descriptive writing whilst solving a murder!!

Miss Cooper and Mr Bradey hosted the afternoon Maths challenges with each table competing against. They each completed various maths challenges including a treasure hunt, primary puzzle sheet and a self portrait challenge to finish off.

Congratulations to all those in attendance. Their attitude, behaviour and enthusiasm throughout was outstanding!

All those that attended are encouraged to visit the Sirius North website and find the transition portal. This will then provide them access to additional resources to improve numeracy and literacy.

Well done!
Mr Gordon and Miss Peacock.
