Lions - Year 6

PE, Swimming and Forest School Letter

Welcome Back Lions! 


I am 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 - The Titanic! I know you enjoyed starting your Titanic models at the end of last year, and I am looking forward to finding out more about the tragic events that occurred on 14th April 1912 with you too! 


In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the classic novel 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll, and having our own version of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. We will be performing playscripts at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party (that we are going to be writing ourselves!) 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 me 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 will be on Wednesdays. Please send your child to school in their PE kit.


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 soon!
