Year 6 is taught by Mrs Burns
We are now in the Spring Term of Year 6. Where does the time go? This term our focus is revision and being test ready. This is clearly an important time for you as we begin to gear up towards your SATs, which will take place in early May. We will be working hard to reach the high targets that you set yourselves. Remember, nothing worth achieving is easy, so don't settle for second best.
For the first part of this term, we will continue with our class read Exodus as we move onto part 3 — NooSpace. Although our studywork books are now complete, we will continue to focus on this text to lead our English. Once complete, we will move onto our new novel, Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis.
We will also be delving into the world of Biology to investigate the Circulatory System. This unit in Science will help us to identify and name the main parts of the circulatory system and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood.
The organisation of the week is as follows:
PE will now be split across two days, Thursday and Friday afternoons (one hour sessions), and will be taught by Mr Charlesworth. Could you please have the correct, labelled PE clothing for the weather, including a full water bottle. Mr Charlesworth will continue to teach every PE lesson, including lunchtime and after school sports clubs.
I know we will continue to be a strong partnership, if there is anything you need to discuss I am always on the door every morning and afternoon. If you require a longer chat, please could you make an alternative time with me, or through the office.
I am thoroughly looking forward to our time together, remember to, "Shoot for the moon; even if you miss, you'll land upon the stars."
