Children in need day:
This week we are focusing on children in need. In Cotton End primary we think charity is very important. We will be donating 50p for one cake, every donation goes to children in need, a very good charity. Children In Need raises money for children who have very ill.
Even £1 could help a life tremendously. To dress up in a spotty costume the price is very small considering it could potentially save a life.
We hope to raise a lot of money and save a few lives.
Thank you for your time.

In maths, we have been doing factors and multiples.
Factors are numbers that go into another number.
Example: 4 is a factor of 24.
Multiples are numbers that are in the times tables.
Example: 24 is a multiple of 4.
Column addition is a method of addition.

Last week on Tuesday 21st March, our class went to King’s House in Bedford, with 3 other schools for a singing concert.
We had practiced for three months for the big day and it was FANTASTIC! We had been learning songs about friendship like ‘You’ve got a friend in me’ from Toy story 2, also songs about little people [children].
Once we had practised, we had dinner and had a little playtime. Then it was time, time to show what we had practiced for. We even got the parents to join in, they were really good. It was amazing, we never wanted it to end!
On the 22nd March Badgers and Otters went to the science museum in London.
Otters watched an IMAX movie about ‘Our Beautiful Planet,’ it was about how the earth works and it had lots of amazing photos from space.
Badgers went to see the robot exhibition and saw lots of different robots. One of them was a human robot that could talk and when you asked it a question or told it to do something it answered your question and did what you told the robot to do.
Many children are worried about their SATS, but there is nothing to worry about.
If you are really worried about your Maths SATS get an app called Mathletics, it will help you!
Our advice to you is practice and make sure you understand what your teachers are teaching. Ask your teacher to explain what you need to do.
I’m a year 6, I found my practice SATS hard at the beginning, but I find it quite easy now.

Things to help with S.A.Ts (Year 6)!
If you are in year 6, you will know the S.A.Ts are coming up. Well, we have some advice and guidance for you: if you are worrying about S.A.Ts, then speak to someone (parents or teachers e.t.c.) about it and ask them to help you to get prepared. Also you can find some websites online such as: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/ks2bitesize/english/ and http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/ks2bitesize/maths/ that should help you. If not, there are lots more websites.
We hope you will do well and good luck!
