Our main topic remains as World War 2 where there will be a strong focus on what war was like for children and how it might have been to live through it. We will be focussing more on key events in the war and what it was like for children who were in hiding such as Anne Frank.
In other events there is a Eucharist Service for Advent on Wednesday 28th November at 9.30am in the Church (most like Year 5 will be leading that one) and the Carol Service is on Wednesday 19th December at 9.30am in Church too. For all other dates please keep an eye on Miss Robinson's weekly newsletter.
A few "housekeeping" things to remember: PE is every Friday so please ensure the children have their kit EVERY week - indoors is dark shorts and a white top - outdoors is as above plus suitable footwear and a plain dark tracksuit if it's colder. Art will be every Wednesday with Mrs Hawke.
I look forward to seeing you all at Parents' Evening, but if you have not made an appointment and still want to see me please find me to arrange a mutually convenient time to do so. Due to a number of school and other commitments I am not often "free" apart from straight after school and even then not on Thursdays as I run the Tag Rugby club.
I will be out on the playground each morning so if you need to speak to me feel free to catch me then or, if you need a little longer or somewhere quieter to speak, please make an appointment via the office.
Year 6 Homework
Please choose one item per week from the Homework Grid (obviously you can do more if you want to!)
In addition you MUST:
1) Read at least 3 times each week at home and record it in your Reading Record.
2) Practise mental maths skills such as fluent times table recall and the associated division facts. eg 6 x 7 = 42 means that 42 divided by 6 = 7.
3) Practise spellings from the Year 5/6 spelling list which is below on the webpage. Maybe use 10 each week in sentences to learn how to use them too.
