2018 Autumn 1

 
This half term has seen an excellent amount of progress in all areas of the curriculum. We continue to work extra hard as we focus on the upcoming SATs tests in May. 
 
The writing our children produced from the film clip 'Beyond the Lines' has been phenomenal and the best I have seen a year 6 produce at this stage in the year - I hope to share some of these with you. We will continue with the theme of World War II as the children continue to build on that knowledge. 
 
The children have shown great progress in maths with them now becoming increasingly confident with exam style questions and securing their application of a range of written methods for the four areas of calculation. 
 
We had a very exciting session with a zoologist who fetched a range of creepy crawlies to further deepen our knowledge on classification. The children were able to handle a range of animals, including a beetle, stick insects and a snake!! And would you believe a tarantula managed to escape and was found in the headteachers office- we cannot wait to write newspaper reports about this!  
 
The green trip this half term was a very exciting trip to Pizza express where each child was able to make their own pizza - they were very tasty! We hopefully look forward to inviting more children on this half terms green trip though they need to show good behaviour to be able to achieve this. 
 
Looking forward to a super Autumn II! 




2018 Autumn I Term 

Welcome back Year 6!

I hope you've had a wonderful summer and are now ready to rise to the challenges that your final year of primary school will fetch with it. I look forward to guiding and watching each one of you blossom and reach your upmost potential. We have lots of hard work ahead of us. though I am confident that with our positive mindsets we will face it head on and really achieve our best.

Kick starting our term off, we will be reading Wonder by R.J.Palacio. A brilliant book about a 12 year old boy who faces the challenges of being different to all the other children. It clearly illustrates that we should never judge a book by its cover as we embark on the journey of August starting his new school. It will definitely pull at our heart strings.

Our topic this term is World War II. Always one of my favourites! We will also use this for part of our literacy lessons too.

Lots of exciting green trips are also planned, as well as some new class reward systems. Therefore your task is to ensure you're organised and taking responsibility for your own equipment, homework and behavior. Lets make this half term our best one yet!
