We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable summer break, and we would like to welcome the children into year 6. The children have settled in well after an exciting break and have already begun to show excitement for their learning.
The autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 6 with lots of new learning taking place as well as consolidating previously learnt skills. In our science work we will be studying evolution and inheritance, including animals and humans; our History this term will be learning about the Aztecs and our Art planning will focus on creating visionary work that is linked with our History topic. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations.
For more details about our learning please click on the Autumn Term Curriculum Overview.
Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days, Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.
Year 6 PE sessions are:
Friday (1st term) – Gym / Dance
Wednesday – Multi sports (games)
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office. Can we also remind parents that children will need pumps included in their indoor PE kit and trainers included in their outdoor PE kits; children may also want to have some warmer clothes for outdoor P.E. as we move into autumn and winter. Children can bring a piece of fruit to school for their morning snack, which they can enjoy during reading time.
Year 6 homework will consist of weekly spellings and home reading. Maths and English homework will be handed out on alternative weeks. Half-termly family project homework linked to humanities or science will also be given out.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact school.
We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.

We enhanced our learning on Christianity and learnt lots about the features of a Church. Children took part in several activities creating their own chalice, stained glass window, a tour of the church and even designing their own stole.
