Welcome to year 6
We would like to welcome all parents, carers and children to term 1 and 2.
Year 6 is an exciting year full of challenges and experiences: from Kent test expectations, to the challenge of SATS week, the excitement of residential trip memories and onwards into pastures new for year 7 beyond. We have so much to experience in this coming year and hope you enjoy the autumn term with us; an exciting term full of stories, and challenges.
As we start the year, our topics will look at: ‘Brazil’, exploring the diverse and unique culture of Brazil, and consider the human and physical features that shape the land and its people.
In English, we will explore: ‘Macbeth’ (by a little-known author called William Shakespeare). This wonderful text will act as the starting point for a variety of writing tasks and journeys deeper into the text.
Swimming for year 6, involves only those children who have currently not yet met the required 25m distance, this takes place every Wednesday afternoon between September and Christmas. Parents and children will be notified if their children are selected to attend.
This term, our PE days (when the children should come to school in their PE kit) will be: Wednesday and Thursday.
Homework: Daily reading (for at least 15mins), Spellings to learn (spelling test on Fridays), Times tables (using Times Table Rock Stars APP)
