This term year 6 will continue with our topic all about Our World. We will be learning about natural events, such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and why and where they occur. We will also investigate the theme of conservation through the medium of poetry. In computing Mrs Cooke will be teaching the children about databases and how to use Excel. In May, the children will sit the statutory SATS assessments and hopefully perform at their best to show how clever they are. After the tests, we will continue writing, using a range of genres, so the children are really well-prepared for secondary school. During the second half term, we have our residential trip to PGL and the end of key stage play to prepare for and perform, before finishing with the leaver's assembly.
Falcon Class are taught by:
Mr Fletcher, Miss Arrowsmith and Miss Sherman
Reading Books and Reading Diaries
Reading books are to be taken home and read EVERY day and returned to school the following day. The reading diary needs to be signed by either the pupil or parent after each reading session. The reading diaries will be monitored regularly to ensure independent reading is taking place at home.
School P.E. kits are to be brought in to school on Monday and kept in school all week. If the kits need a wash this is to be done at the weekend or at half term.
Please note, that Booster Club will take placed next term, after Christmas, every Tuesday until 4pm. All children are expected to attend and are welcome to bring a small snack to eat at 3pm. Thanks for your support in enabling us to prepare your child for the national tests in May.
