 Happy new year to you all! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas holiday and that everyone is well-rested and ready to take on the continuing challenges of year 6. Our value this term is compassion. In Term 4, our value is responsibility. In Year 6 this term, much of our learning will be based on the theme of Rainforests – an interesting topic with a lot of scope for discussion and debate. Further information about what we will be studying this term is included on the next page. A summary of learning in other curriculum areas is set out below.


Our PE days continue to be on Wednesday and Thursday. Children will come home in their PE kits on Thursday so that they can be washed if needed. Please make sure that PE kits are in school wherever possible in case they are needed. Trainers can also be bought into school for children to change into during break and lunch times.


Homework remains unchanged and is set on Friday and due in the following Thursday. This will consist of a mixture of Reading, Spelling and Maths activities as well as some topic related tasks. All home learning tasks will enable your child to consolidate their learning and revise different topics so will be closely linked to the learning in the classroom. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning and let me know if there is anything I can help with. We encourage the children in year to take an increasing responsibility for their learning and complete extra study if required. Websites such as Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed (which is updated regularly) continue to be invaluable, but children may also want to look at sites such as ‘My Mini Maths’ or ‘BBC Bitesize’ to help them practice key skills. Please let me know if your child has lost their log-in details. If there are any aspects relating to teaching and learning in Year 6 that you would like to discuss further or if there are issues that crop up which you would like to talk about, please do get in touch. Emails can be directed to the school office and the office staff will forward them on to me.
