Welcome to Year 6 with Mrs Kelsall (along with Mrs Connolly, Mrs Houghton, Mrs Weir and Mr Fredrick!)
This is such an important and exciting year for you all and we are really looking forward to sharing this time with you.
Our Science Topics this term are ‘Evolution’ and ‘Classifying Animals’. We are looking forward to lots of exciting practical activities.
In Topic lessons (Geography/Art/DT) we are studying ‘Who are our European Neighbours?’. This topic will allow us to find out about the physical and human features of a number of European countries.
In RE lessons we are studying how the Arts are reflected in Religion.
Our Computing work is coding - a real challenge. Plus we are looking forward to Safer Internet Day in February.
Music will see us continuing to play the recorder before Dean Trust staff return in the Summer Term to support us with our production.
We are going to be very busy indeed!
On Thursday they will bring home English or maths homework to be sent into school by the following Tuesday. Time is available at lunchtimes on Monday for anyone who is struggling and there will be a drop in session on Tuesday morning from 8.30-8.45 if you wish to come into school with your child. For children who have struggled to bring homework in last term, they will be able to complete their work in school at break and lunchtimes.
Year 6 often panic about SATs but they really do not have to worry! We will be providing lots of revision support and test practise in school to help your child reach their full potential.
We do ask parents to avoid any holidays during the first half of the Summer term as this can adversely affect the children’s performance.
More SATs information next term.
