Year 6

Our topic this term is

Tudor Tewkesbury

During this term, our topic is Tudor Tewkesbury, which is a local history unit.   We hope to visit the John Moore museum to learn more about the Tudors in our local area.  In science, we are learning about lifecycles and electricity.  We have an exciting trip planned to the Science Festival in June. Our  class novel is Beetle Boy by M G Leonard.

 

SATS will start on Monday 9th May. We will be offering a free breakfast before the exams, Monday to Thursday, from 8:30 onwards. 

We are preparing our summer musical, Hagbane’s Doom, which has already sparked everyone’s imagination. We will be handing out scripts and learning lyrics; pupils will be able to select and sign-up for their preferred roles. Hopefully everyone will have a role that they are happy with!

 

During the course of this term, we will liaise closely with the children’s secondary schools to ensure a smooth transition. You should receive information from your child’s school about dates for their induction days. Please don’t hesitate to contact us, should you have any concerns.

 

General information

Pupils will need to wear PE kits to school, on Mondays and Wednesdays (joggers and a warm sweatshirt would be great). Our Friday trip to forest school has been so popular, we’ve reserved the slot for Year 6 again. Pupils need to wear school uniform that covers their legs – tights or trousers. A change of footwear is essential. Ideally wellies will be left in lockers.

Homework

Your support with homework tasks has made a significant difference. Over the next school year, please continue to chat through their homework with them, encourage them to engage with it to their utmost and help them get organised so that it is handed in on time. Pupils would benefit from continued, regular tables work and daily reading – including out loud to an adult. Homework will be set, as follows:
