Welcome to Year 6
Year 6 pupils have had a great start to the new academic year. The children have returned to school full of enthusiasm and ready to get their teeth into the challenges of Year 6.
The first two weeks of the term have been spent as a whole school exploring the text 'Journey'. The pupils have been absorbed in a range of different activities and they have had the opportunity to show what creative minds they have as well as building their learning power muscles.
The rest of of the term will be spent exploring the theme 'Well-being and Wonder'. During this topic pupils will be learning about how amazing their minds and bodies are and the importance of looking after them.
We look forward to sharing our learning with you over the coming weeks.

The Spring Term is now in full swing and the children have been working incredibly hard in all areas of the curriculum. Our Young Voices choir were an absolute credit to themselves and the Knightlow Family. Their singing, song learning and behaviours were impeccable throughout and it was a total pleasure to take them to the Genting Arena.
It was fantastic to see so many parents at the SATs information sessions actively seeking information on ways that they can support their children in the build up to May's tests and transition to secondary school. Thank you so very much for your time, interest and enthusiasm.
Our visit to Marle Hall is creeping ever closer with excitement growing daily. Our time in the Welsh mountains provides wonderful opportunities for the children to see first hand the features of glaciation, rivers and mountains that they have been learning about during their topic work in the classroom. It is always such a privilege to spend quality time with the children, encouraging them to face challenges and further build relationships with their peers.
Bring on the balmy Welsh weather!
Welcome back to school and to Year 6!
This term we have some really exciting learning opportunities ahead, from wonderful texts in literacy to exploring the wonderful world that we live in through our whole school project For The Beauty of The Earth! Later this term we will also be tuning our vocal chords ready for our magnificent Young Voices performance.
PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and a Friday so any support in ensuring that children are correctly equipped for these lessons (including outdoor trainers and jogging bottoms / hoodies when the weather gets colder) will be gratefully received.
It is essential that the children continue to read and to complete homework to the standard they know is expected of them within school. Year 7 homework will much less of a shock to the system if children get into good habits during Year 6. Please continue to support them in practising their times tables and related division facts; it is still an instrumental part of the curriculum which enables children to grasp concepts across the mathematics curriculum much faster.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Miss Mohacsi and Mrs Brown
