Class 13

Welcome back everyone in Class 13 to the second half of your time in Year 6 .
I look forward to spending the next couple of months helping you get ready for you SATS.

It is important now that all pupils are doing a bit of extra revising at home so that they will be confident in May. A piece of maths or English will be coming home most nights for them to complete and it would be helpful if parents could support their child with this. Another way of helping your child is to encourage them to be reading for at least 10 minutes per night.

Literacy
During this half term we will be looking at The Highway Man by Alfred Noyes.
This is a story poem which will introduce a bit o romance into the air!!!!
We will also be looking at myths and legends particularly Robin Hood and his Merrie Men.
We will be doing lots and lots and lots of writing…….!

Numeracy
We will be looking carefully at all the things we need to know for our tests in May and for the next steps to get ready for High School. It is really important to practise at home to improve accuracy and speed. I cannot stress the importance of knowing times tables properly as this is an excellent tool to assist calculations.

Come and See
In our Come and See lessons this term we will be finishing off exploring Unity and how the Eucharist enables us to live in communion.
After this topic we will be moving to the season of Lent. Our topic will be Death and New Life We will be thinking about he death and resurrection of Jesus.

Science
This half term we will be looking at Light and the eye. We will be thinking carefully about how we see things with them.

Topic
In our Topic lessons this term we will be learning all about the rivers of the UK and the World and linking them to the work we did last half term about mountains.

P.E. Kits need to be in school and ready to use.
Learning Logs will be sent home on Fridays and should be returned to school no later than Wednesday

Please remember that I am always in school early and at the door if you need a quick word with me and if it needs more time I can make an appointment for before or after school. It is better to come and talk to me than worry about something that we can solve together. I appreciate your support and look forward to working with your child as this year progresses.

Football news will follow as we go along and revision clubs will continue on Tuesday and Thursday after school.

Let us remember what it says in our mission statement –
That we are all valued and recognised for our unique contributions.
