We hope that you had a great Christmas break and we wish you a happy new year. We are delighted to return to school and begin a new year. We have a busy term ahead!
This term in year 6, English will begin with units on narrative and non-fiction writing while Maths will focus on pupils developing reasoning and application skills. Children will continue to receive discrete Phonics lessons twice a week in order to boost reading skills and we shall continue our whole school focus on handwriting. Children will bring home their reading and library book each day along with their reading journals as well as a homework book. Children will receive spellings from their class teacher each week. Your continued support in helping your children at home with these tasks is greatly appreciated. Class spellings will be given out and tested on a Wednesday.
Our PE session will usually be held on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon, however these sessions are flexible, therefore children need a PE kit (consisting of navy blue shorts, a blue top and pumps/trainers) in school at all times. As jewellery should not be worn for PE sessions, it is advisable to leave jewellery items at home on these days. It is also advisable to clearly label all of your child’s uniform with their name to prevent lost property confusion.
We have some fantastic topics planned for science, geography, design and technology and computing this term including exploring North America, light and iconic landmarks.

We look forward to working with you to ensure your child has a pleasurable and valuable spring term. This is a crucial term for year 6 to make excellent progress in all areas of the curriculum and build towards their end of year tests. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to the class teacher, as you play a vital role in your child’s education.
