So that's another summer holiday done! I'm sure all the parents are ready and raring to go for a new school year - I hope the children are too.
As ever, Year 6 will be very busy in the first half-term. So much to learn and do so there's no chance of anyone getting bored. Our main topic is 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 visiting RAF Hendon Museum on Wednesday 10th October and I will send out reminders about that day in due course.
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. We will be looking to appoint Prefects and House Captains very soon so if you are interested in these roles pleased think about what qualities and characteristics you would need to demonstrate to be trusted with such a role.
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.
