We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Christmas break, and we would like to welcome the children back, ready for the spring term.
The spring term is always a busy time for children in Year 6 with lots of learning taking place with the run up to their SATs in May.
In our science work, we will be studying Light.
Topic this term is particularly exciting as our theme is ‘Life is a rollercoaster.’ This theme will look cover a range of skills and incorporates several areas of the curriculum including; History, Geography, Art and Computing.
English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations.
Please can we remember that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days, Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.
Year 6 PE sessions are:
Tuesdays and Thursdays
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office. Can we also remind parents that children will need pumps included in their indoor PE kit and trainers included in their outdoor PE kits.
Year 6 homework will consist of weekly spellings and home reading. Due to SATs in May children will be provided with revision booklets. Tasks will be set each week from the booklets for them to complete as homework.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact school.
We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.

Children worked hard designing their chocolate bar packaging. First, they thought of a target audience, a brand name and ingredients.
They will then be creating their own chocolate bar which will go inside - more photos to follow!

In our Topic lessons we have designed our own printing block using lino and then transferred the print onto a t-shirt.
The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They listened to an education talk about The Aztecs and chocolate, experienced the 4D cinema, saw first hand how chocolate is made, wrote their names in chocolate and much more.
The children were investigating how shadows can change in size dependent upon the distance of the light source.
Class 6 tasting chocolate using only their taste buds. They were looking at how The Aztecs and chocolate are linked.
We enhanced our learning on Christianity and learnt lots about the features of a Church. Children took part in several activities creating their own chalice, stained glass window, a tour of the church and even designing their own stole.
