Welcome to Jaguars!
I are looking forward to an action-packed first half term in Year 6 with you all! We have some fantastic learning opportunities to look forward to, starting with our first History topic - World War One and World War Two!
In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the classic novel 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll. We will be writing and performing playscripts, creating magnificent artwork, exploring poetry and even creating our own story openings. We can't wait to follow Alice down the rabbit hole and into the weird and wacky world that is Wonderland!
In Maths, we will be studying number and place value - ensuring that we are secure with numbers to 10 million. This will then be followed by revision of the four operations. Please come and speak to us if you have any questions about concepts or methods taught in class if you wish to support your child at home.
(A gentle reminder: if you wish to provide your child with extra revision materials, please do not use previous SATs papers as these will be used for assessment throughout the school year.)
PE and Forest School will be on Wednesdays. Please send your child to school with their full PE kit and appropriate clothing for forest school (long sleeves and trousers). Remember to bring an extra pair of shoes that can get muddy, too!
The Year 6 team will be outside of the classroom each morning from 8.30am to greet the children. Our first lesson begins at 8.45am. The school day will finish at 3.25pm.
And do keep an eye on our class page for updates and snapshots of our learning this term!
I look forward to seeing you all on Monday 5th September.
