Around the World
Our topic for this term is Around the World. Year 6 will be travelling the globe this term, visiting all of the worlds continents and discovering more about the oceans and their inhabitants. We will learn about sustainability, the impact that we as humans have on our planet and ways in which we can live a 'greener' life. We shall also be focusing on specific countries such as China, Kenya, Italy and the USA and we will be comparing lifestyles and cultures with our own. We shall also investigate world foods and create our own 'Global Gourmet' cafe where we will be developing our financial literacy skills. This is just a sample of what we will be doing. Please read our termly plan below for further details and specific curriculum content:
Reading is an extremely important part of your child's learning. We will take every opportunity to listen to your child read throughout the week, therefore, we would kindly ask that you ensure your child's reading book and diary are returned to school each day and available on a daily basis. Pupils will also take part in guided reading sessions where we will look at specific reading skills. We would ask that you support us in school by spending 10 minutes a day reading with your child at home. This does not need to be listening to them read aloud now that they are in Year 6 but could be a chat about what they have read, what is happening in the story or who their favourite characters are.
PE will be held on Wednesdays this term. Please ensure that your child has appropriate kit available in school to take part in the session. Children are no longer permitted to wear their PE kit to school. Please ensure that their kit is brought into school in a clearly labelled bag on a Monday.
Homework will continue to be sent home weekly on a Friday. Please can you support your child in completing their home tasks. We try not to send too much homework, as we are very aware of how precious quality family time is after a day in work but we would greatly appreciate it if your child could return any homework by Wednesday every week. We will then ensure it is marked and discussed with your child. Children will have the opportunity to share their homework with their peers each week.
Snack and Dinner Money
Please pay for both snack and school dinners using Parent Pay.
If you have any questions or queries about this year then please do not hesitate in coming to see us.
