Welcome back! After a fun filled Autumn term, we are now back and raring to go!
During the Spring Term, Year 6 will continue to learn new things in our fabulous topic 'Gallery Rebels'. We will study a range of artists and their different techniques from throughout history to the present day.
Spring 1 - Gallery Rebels
This project teaches children about a range of different artists and their different styles and techniques.
This term would be the perfect opportunity to head out in to the local area and look at some of the fabulous art and culture of Stoke on Trent.
There are lots of '11 by 11' challenges that you could tick off as you explore art around the city.
It is really important to learn and to be able to recall lots of information in Maths. The document below highlights the key instant recall facts for the autumn term. These will help with mental maths recall and the arithmetic that we will be learning during year 6.

Spring 2 - A Child's War
As the Spring term continues, we will begin our topic learning about World War 2. This topic will continue into the summer term as there is lots to learn, explore and remember.
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. Remember, no earrings to be worn during PE so please make sure these are taken out and left at home if you cannot take them out yourselves.
Maths and English Revision

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.
