Autumn Term 2019

This term our Topic is the Ancient Mayans. Please have a look at the context for learning document below for more information. As usual in Year 6, we also have lots of other exciting opportunities going on. We have our PGL trip, Cadbury World day trip, restart your heart CPR session and Bikeability to name just a few. We will be giving out information about all of these as the term progresses.

Our PE sessions will take place on a Wednesday, but please make sure that PE kits are always in school as we sometimes have to alter our PE timetable. We will also be doing our school grounds cross country run on Friday afternoons.

We will be having a big focus on reading this year and encouraging the children to learn and use lots of interesting vocabulary. As well as our 'class reading book', every child will also have a school reading book that they read for 10 minutes in school every day. In addition, we also encourage the children to read a variety of text types at home.

Maths homework will be given out every week (one week paper-based and one week on MyMaths); Spelling tests will be given each week, with a specific spelling focus and activity to complete and Science homework will be given out every two weeks. In addition, we will occasionally give out extra opportunities for a home-based topic.
