We hope that you all had an enjoyable half term break. We have a busy few months ahead, where we will be focusing on refining our mathematical skills and developing our knowledge and application of English grammar.
During the term we focus on preparing the children for their upcoming SATs which will commence the week of Monday 11th May 2020. The children will continue to receive weekly homework from the revision books. It is important that your child completes the set activities as this will help prepare them for their learning in school as well as their tests. To help the children prepare, we will be running Easter Boosters in school on Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th April. This is an invaluable few days, where revision sessions will run from 10:00am until 3:00pm. More information will be provided later this term.
There are many exciting events planned over the upcoming weeks. We will begin our topic of ‘Micro Me’ which will involve the children looking at the book ‘Boy Giant’ by Michael Morpurgo and designing and making their own board games.
During this half term our focus will be on ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’. We will look at the range of living things, from micro-organisms through to plants and animals. We will look at how to use keys and classification tables and how to distinguish between species and varieties of living things. We will also be holding a science week commencing Monday 2nd March 2020. During the week, the children will take part in science based practical activities and will also participate in an exciting science workshop!
Year 6 PE lesson day will now be Thursday. Please be aware that sessions will be outdoors, weather permitting. Therefore, it is important that your child has their kit in school every week.
A very well done to Cherry Tree for winning the KS2 attendance challenge. Their fantastic effort was awarded with a pizza party!
As you are aware, this will be a very busy term in year 6. Therefore, it is vital that all children are in school so that large chunks of learning are not missed. This will undoubtedly assist with preparations for SAT’s as well as a smooth transition to secondary school.
If you have any concerns or questions, please come and see us. We’re more than happy to help!
Thank you for your continued support.
With best wishes,
Mr Carroll and Mrs Mead
