WELCOME TO YEAR 6!

Welcome back everyone! It's great to be back. This term we are working on nourishment for mind and body. We'll be looking at where our food comes from. Already we have sampled foods from around the world. We tried passion fruit, kiwi fruit, watermelon, Bombay mix, couscous, Thai chillis, greek yoghurt and honey, focaccia, mozzarella and basil, pineapple and chocolate. We will also be looking at how we can look after our minds, particularly after lockdown. In science, we are learning about how different living things can be classified, including microorganisms. In DT, we will be designing and making bread.
Please can you make sure that your child reads to you at least twice a week and sign their reading book to show that this has happened. As a reward for this, children will get stickers on our reading leader boards.
Outdoor PE: Tuesday
Indoor PE: Friday
Please note: Children should come to school in their PE kits on PE days. They will spend all day in these so they do not need to bring school uniforms.
Homework will be set on a Friday and will consist of times tables rockstars, spelling and reading. We strongly recommend that you encourage children to complete it as it is extremely important in their learning journey.
Times Tables Rockstars
Each child has an account that they can access at home - there is also a 'Times tables Rockstars' app that you can download to your phone or tablet. It has been proven that those children who use these perform better in school and In tests.
