Welcome to Term 2!  

 

Adults who will be helping you this year: Mr Thomas, Mrs Driscoll, Mr Todd, Ms Percival-Haines, Ms Doughty, Mr Evans, Mrs Wallace (Tuesday PM – 6KT), Mrs Harris (Every other Tuesday PM – 6P-H) and Mrs Thatcher.

We would like to wish Mrs Ring a fond farewell as she sails off into the happy seas of retirement!

Cooking – We will be making stuffed peppers towards the end of this term. Why not help your parents and carers in the kitchen, and brush up on your chopping skills?

Maths and English groups – Ms Doughty will be taking a small group for English and Maths for four mornings a week. She will be teaching the same lessons as the rest of Year 6. This is being done to reduce class size and give all children more teacher time.

 

 

Appointments – We would love to talk to you. Please contact the office if you’d like to make an appointment. Reading records are also an excellent communication method. Please ask your child to show us any message you wish us to see.

Homework – We will be setting English and Maths homework once a week along with 10 spellings, taken from the DfE lists. We also expect you to work continually on your times tables and arithmetic skills – this is very important and will be tested every week.

Project – Our first project of the year is called ‘How Many Wives?’ and it’s all about life in Tudor Britain. We always love to hear about anything you have discovered in your own time. Here are some pictures of our WOW day (The Battle of Bosworth):

 

 

Swimming – We begin our swimming lessons on Monday 11th September and they will continue until November 13th. All three classes will be going on Monday mornings. This will be our PE slot so kits will not be needed until swimming has ended.
