The Spring term in Year 6 

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I have enjoyed hearing from the children about their Christmas adventures over the past few weeks.  

As you may be aware, this term we have been inspired by the book ‘Can we save the tigers?’ within our English work and are enjoying learning and writing about endangered animals. Our topic work this term is themed around the Ancient Greeks, with the question ‘Why were the Greeks so groovy?’ directing our learning. We will be using our history skills to investigate why Greece was so important and its influence on the western world, which is still evident today. Covering areas such as the Olympics, democracy, drama and Greek mythology. To help with our learning we will be taking part in a workshop called The glorious Ancient Greeks on Monday 5th March, in school. Our children will meet a rich Athenian lady and Spartan who will work with us all day, leading hands-on activities, which include artefacts, costumes and drama to bring their history learning to life.

As you will be aware this term is a key part in your child’s learning journey towards the National Statutory Key Stage 2 Assessments.   This year the National Statutory Assessments will take place during the week beginning Monday 14th May 2018 and as a result it is important that any child absence is avoided throughout this week.  So as to deliver key information for the tests that your child will be undertaking - I would like to invite you to a parent and child information evening in our school hall on Tuesday 6th February at 5pm. 

A further date for your diary is our year 6 residential to the Conway Centre which will take place from Monday 4th June to Friday 8th June.  This is an absolutely fantastic visit and the cost of this trip this year will be approximately £330.  The final cost of this visit will be confirmed shortly; however you can start making payments now through Parent Pay. 

Thank you for your support and I look forward to continuing to work with you and your child to enable them to make further progress throughout this term.  If you have any concerns please feel free to come and speak to me. 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Wheeler
