We have really hit the ground running in Year 6!
We had a busy first half term learning all about technology and inventions that have helped shape the world we live in today.
This term promises to be just as busy with plenty of new and exciting learning to engage us. We will be focusing on the Victorians. We will be learning about Victorian school life, living conditions and the difference between the rich and poor, with many more learning opportunities throughout the term. We then will be presenting all of our work to our parents, showing you everything we have learnt.

Please make sure the children have their P.E. kits in school all week. We have P.E. on a Monday and Friday. The children will need warm clothes as we will be heading outside this term as much as possible.
Reading and Homework
Please ensure the children are reading daily at home. Below is a link outlining 100 books recommended for all children to read before leaving primary school:
Which one's have you read? Which will you aim to read before Christmas?
Maths homework needs to be completed weekly. After discussions with parents I will be handing out arithmetic style questions for the children. They will receive 36 questions a week, the expectation is that they only do this for half an hour (this is the allocated time they will have during SATs). If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to ask.
