WELCOME TO YEAR 6 LT !!
It may only have been a half week but we have crammed so much in already. We have done lots of fun activities (ask us about the application form to Year 6! When asked to answer the impossible, creativity takes flight - I loved what the children came up with, particularly about the jelly feet and the caveman!) We've discussed and agreed how we want our classroom to work, checked where our Mathematical understanding is so that we know how we will need to progress, begun our work towards creating a poem in the style of Ted Hughes AND started to delve deep into our class reader book: Orphans of the Tide. We've begun our first foundation subject as well, and embraced the subject of Mapping in Geography. Using atlases to locate different places of the UK was so much fun, the children really enjoyed the collaborative element of this activity. Phew!
How have we crammed all this, and our dodgeball, daily miles, breaks and lunchtimes into three days??? Welcome to the crazy world of Year 6!
It's that time of year again - a new classroom, new teachers and a new start! Myself and Miss Burney are excited to welcome you all back to school after a long summer holiday, and to get started on all the great things we have planned - and after an unusual 18 months, we look forward to a little normality!
In the downloads section, you will find a sneak preview of what we will be learning about this term, and informaton about homework. Unlike previous years, we do not do 'chatterday' homework, but work will be sent home every day (not too much tho so don't worry!). PE will be on a Monday and Friday, and so a full PE kit needs to be in school those days. We have in school all the stationary you will need, and a fabulous range of reading books in our Library so all you need to bring with you the first week is a super positive attitude and a smile :-)
We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 8th September.
