Our topic for this term is 'World War Two' and all the information about what we will be covering will be available in the curriculum booklet.
The home learning grid is available at the bottom of the page.
In year 6 this year, our teachers are Miss Read and Mrs Childs. Mrs Aldous and Mrs Jewers are our teaching assistants and Mrs Barker is our HLTA. Children may also be invited to work with Mr Cole within a small group.
World War Two
We have had a great start to our new term, learning about World War Two. Our English lessons are full of links to our topic, through our reading of Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll, as well as our writing. We have written descriptions of being in an air raid, using expanded noun phrases and figurative language.
We have also made air-raid shelters and tested them to see if they would hold a 1kg weight, if a lego man could fit inside and if they were realistic (both inside and out).
Spelling tests will be conducted on a Friday morning - this term's lists are available at the bottom of the page.
Some children will have individual lists provided by Mrs Starling - spelling tests for these children will take place on a Tuesday afternoon.
Please find above the information shared with parents at the SATs information evening.
The home learning grid has been sent home and can be viewed at the bottom of the page. Home learning is due every Friday and, as usual, children who do not hand in home learning will attend a lunchtime detention, where they will be able to complete the missing home learning.
Home learning club is available on a Tuesday lunchtime for all children to attend. A member of staff will be available during this time to give any advice and guidance required.
Please be aware that if children sign up to one of our clubs, we expect them to attend every week. Any non-attendance will need to be reported to the office by a parent/carer. This is especially important to children in years 5 and 6 who have permission to walk by themselves. Thank you.
Times Tables Rockstars
We have a competition running for all children in years 2-6, which aims to improve the children's times tables knowledge using the Times Tables Rockstars website.
Each week, the child with the highest correct answers in their class will be awarded with a certificate, which will be displayed on our Rockstars board. At the end of the week, they will be able to bring this home.
