Spring 1 Update
The children in Year 6 have continued to work really hard - we are proud of them. We have seen some good progression so far and look forward to seeing more during next half term. We are getting closer and closer to the time of their SATs, and it is therefore vital that children continue to try their very best in everything.
Homework is now being handed out every day, apart from Thursdays (when children can use this time for their own revision). We thank you for your continued support with ensuring that the children's homework is completed to the very best of their abilities, as it really does benefit them. Homework is marked with the children during the next lesson so it is important that the children do complete it on time.
Each week, children receive 10 new spellings to learn. They are then tested on them at the end of the week. Children must also be learning the Year 5/6 spelling words, which can be found in their Homework Diaries on page 97. It would be wonderful if children could practise these with someone at home - perhaps writing them on a small whiteboard? or chanting them to an older brother or sister?
Welcome to Year 6!

Learning for Spring term
This term is an extremely busy term for learning. The children will be consolidating their learning from Autumn term as well as learning new knowledge. Homework will continue to be handed out and we do expect children to complete this as it really does help them with their learning in class.
In English, children will continue to work hard on their SPAG knowledge, understanding and application. They will be learning how to write a 'Flashback' story.
This half term, the concepts covered will include: general arithmetic, time, measure, data and angles.
Cross Curricular learning:
Britain through the Decades: the children will be learning about a variety of historical events which have happened in Britain.
During the second half of Autumn term, the children in Year 6 have been preparing for their own European Travel Fair. Their task was to persuade people to come to their chosen country.
On 18th December 2018, the children presented their travel fairs and we thought they were wonderful. Each group had thought of different ways to persuade people to visit their country: brochures, examples of local foods, posters, examples of the currency used, Powerpoint quizzes.
Well done to all the children involved.
