Welcome to 2018! We hope you have all had a wonderful break over Christmas and have made lots of wonderful family memories.
Firstly, we’d like to thank all of year 6 for their hard work over the Autumn term and, likewise, thank all parents for your continued support. We are pleased that ClassDojo is being used to keep communication between us open. We encourage you to continue to use this resource to share successes and ask any questions that you may have.
Before we get stuck into the topics that we will be covering this term we thought we would give you a few reminders as a refresher.
Please ensure children are in the full school uniform, including shoes not trainers. If there are any issues with this, please let us know.
Children must have their PE kit in school from Monday and take it home to wash on a Friday.
PE is on a Friday, but where possible we might have the opportunity to take part in additional PE sessions so need to be prepared at all times.
Blue book homework will be given out on Friday and will be expected to be back in on the following Thursday, completed to as high a standard as we would expect in school.
Additional grammar and mathematics homework will be given out weekly.
Regular use of all the online provisions will be expected and monitored closely, in particular: IXL.com
Our exciting topic for the Spring term is: I’m an Evacuee, Get Me Out of Here!
“A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It is 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelters, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make long journey away from their homes and families into unknown territories. Find out if children have a better life on the other side of the battle field.”
We are looking forward to fully immersing ourselves in this topic, including a trip to Stibbington and through various of the foundation subjects:
Science: Light and Sight and Changing Circuits
Geography: Countries involved in the war
Design and Technology: Textiles and product design
Art: Propaganda posters
Computing: We are Project Managers
Religious Education: Stories of Faith - Judaism
PSHCE: Growth Mindset
Music: War songs, music for impact.
We look forward to an enjoyable and hardworking term.
