Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back to the Summer Term in Year 6! We are excited to welcome all of you back for a fantastic (and hopefully sunny) final term of the school year.
This term we have 2 new topics to explore.
Summer 1 - Hola Mexico!
Welcome to Mexico. Get ready to explore this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun festivals. We will enjoy making and tasting some Mexican delights, designing and making Mayan masks and exploring the Chichuahuan desert.
Here are some activities that you can try at home.
Summer 2 - Gallery Rebels.
Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone. Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels.
This term we are excited to introduce a new learning platform 'Bedrock'. This will enhance pupil learning and they will experience engaging, language-rich fiction and non-fiction texts that expand their knowledge of the world as well as their vocabulary. All pupils will be given log in details when they return after the Easter holidays.
Our PE day is Monday. Please come to school wearing full PE kit including suitable footwear for outdoor activities. This term will be 'Athletics'.
Maths and English Revision
Although we set plenty of homework, you might want to practice certain skills a little bit more at home. Try these links to games and activities:

Reading at Home
Please listen to your child read every day and ensure that their Reading Diary is signed to confirm this. We are checking Reading Diaries each week and children who have not read at home will have an opportunity to read in school by reading to staff during the morning break time on a Friday.
Homework will be set each Friday. It is expected that pupils return their homework by the following Thursday to ensure that it can be marked and feedback given.
Remember to check Seesaw and Purple Mash for additional activities that are set.
Thank you to all of the parents who have signed up for Seesaw. It is a wonderful platform for us to use to set work for the pupils and for them to share the work that they do in school with those at home. All pupils have their Seesaw home learning code in their reading diaries to access their page at home.
