Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

We have lots of exciting activities planned this term. Our class topic is "Save the Planet" and we will be finding out about ecological and environmental issues in the UK and around the world and considering the impact our actions have upon the planet.

 

We will be doing PE on a Thursday afternoon this term, however you need to have your full PE kit and shoes in school every day so you can take part in other sporting activities throughout the week. We will continue to complete the Prince William Award every Friday.

 

Homework will be sent out every Friday and must be handed in by the following Wednesday. Your home reading books should be read and signed by an adult every night. Spot prizes will be given for reading so remember to bring your Reading Together book into school every day. You will also need to bring your water bottle to school every day too. Homework and online learning clubs are on at lunchtime every day.

 

Key information will be shared on this page and on our class dojo page so remember to check regularly. If you have any questions, please just ask.
