Croeso i Blwyddyn 6!
Welcome back to the Autumn Term. We have made a fantastic start to the year and I am very impressed with the pupils positive attitudes and enthusiasm as they enter Year 6. We have a very exciting year ahead, with our class assembly, Stackpole and transition activities for secondary school.
Our topic this term is ‘Globetrotters.' We had fun on our immersion day where we learnt lots about maps, explorers and cultures from around the world. Children then discussed ideas that interested them and had the opportunity to plan what they would like to learn this term linked to new skills taken from across the 6 areas of learning. Children were given the chance to come up with lesson ideas and staff have made the links between ideas and skills to ensure the learning is purposeful.
Please find below the pupils ideas that we will be looking at this term:
Our PE day is a Tuesday and Sportstars is a Wednesday. Please remember to have your kit in school on these days!
We will be working very hard on our spellings this year! Spellings will be given out on a Monday and need to be completed at home and returned to school on Thursday, ready for a spelling test on Friday.
Homework will be given out on a Friday, to be returned by the Tuesday of the following week. We use the Topmarks website in class, which has lots of games to practise our mental maths. This can be used at home for extra practise.
If there are any questions please feel free to get in touch.
