Summer Term 2018

Firstly, we’d like to thank all of year 6 for their hard work over the Spring 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 share the overview of the new topics for the Summer Term we thought we would give you a few reminders as a refresher.

House Keeping:

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 Tuesday and will be expected to be back in on the following Monday, 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 Summer term is: Oh I Do Like to Be Beside The Seaside!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea. Oh I do like to stroll along the prom prom prom, where the brass band plays tiddly om pom pom!

The waves lap against the shore and the seagulls coo overhead while the salty, sea air drifts on the breeze. This scene could not be more of a contrast from the busy roads, concreate pavements and hubbub of the city. Learn what it would be like to live in contrasting localities within the United Kingdom.

We are looking forward to fully immersing ourselves in this topic, including our residential to Scarborough and through various of the foundation subjects:

Science: Evolution and Inheritance

Geography: A Contrasting Localities Study

History: Changing Britain

Design and Technology: Fairgrounds

Art: Fairground Attraction Posters

Computing: We are app planners & We are interface designers

Religious Education: Religion in our community

PSHCE:  Mindfulness & Transition

Music: Reggae

We look forward to an enjoyable and hardworking term.
