Spring Term 1

 

Happy New Year!

Welcome back. This half term we are looking forward to learning about the ancient civilisation of Benin, becoming SUPER SLEUTHS and continuing our hard work in English and Maths.

French Day

 

At the end of last half term, we had a French day. First we created and conducted a survey to gather information about people’s favourite fruits and fillings, and then we tasted and evaluated existing crepes that were bought from the supermarket. After this, we designed, made and tasted our own crepes. We also designed and made our own packaging.

Have a look at our day in the photos below.

SATs

 

This term we will be working in three groups during the morning for English, Maths and Grammar lessons. We will continue to explore a range of SATs style questions to ensure that we are sufficiently prepared for the tests.

We will be holding a SATs meeting for parents on

Tuesday 4th February

Please come along to have a look at some sample questions from past papers, find out more about the testing arrangements and to ask any questions you might have.

READING

In Year 6, we like to promote a love of reading. Throughout the year, we will be encouraging your child to read with independence; leading to a real love of reading for pleasure. Please listen to your child read a little every day and sign in their reading record once a week. Your child can win prizes for the most reading at home. Your child will be reading from a reading scheme or free reading books, the library, during guided reading sessions and hopefully they will join book club! Library sessions are on Wednesday morning, please can we have books ready to hand back on this day. Your child can independently change their scheme book once they have finished and discussed it with us. Children can also borrow books from our classroom reading area if they want to!
