Year 6 is an important year for learning; it is the year when children should become competent and confident in all areas, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. We will be working hard learning new skills, practicing these skills and applying them across all lessons and subjects.
Our first topic will be ‘Hola Mexico’ where the children will have the opportunity to learn all about Mexico, Mexican fesitvals, the Mayan Civilization and the Mexican cuisine.This will be an amazing, colourful topic and I am very excited to be teaching it. Over the course of the year we will have 4 interesting and exciting topics in total.
Homework: Homework goes home on a Friday and needs to be back in school by the following Wednesday. Homework not completed on time will be completed during break times.
PE: PE will be on a Thursday this half term. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school. As the weather gets colder we will continue to work outside so dark coloured leggings or track suit bottoms and a jumper are advisable. Also please remember no earrings on PE days.
Author of the half term: Our author of the half term is Louis Sachar. We will be reading his award-winning book - Holes, as this links to our topic 'Hola Mexico'.
Reading books: All children need to bring their reading book to school every day. Please listen to your child read and make a note in your child’s reading record. These reading records will be checked regularly.
Friday 27th October - Finish for half term
Monday 6th November - Return to school
