Happy New Year!
We hope that you have all had a restful Christmas and are ready for a busy Spring Term. Our topic this term is Reach for the Stars, in which we are inspired by all things Space. We have a strong Science focus to the term: as well as all aspects of the curriculum to do with the Earth in Space, we will also be completing a unit about Electricity and one about Light. As part of the BBC's Terrific Scientific project we will be using the opportunity to investigate how we can save power in our school. Our Literacy work takes on a space theme too, with opportunities for writing Science Fiction short stories; debate on 'Are we alone?' and plenty of information and explanation writing through our Science topics. In Computing we will animate our own informative videos about the planets, as well as using the computers for research and presentation of our work. You will be able to see the results of our term's work at our assembly towards the end of term, as well as seeing our dance to 'War of the Worlds'. It promises to be a packed term.
Weekly homework is given out on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. It usually involves further Maths practice and English grammar or punctuation work. Year 6 have SATs practice booklets to use to support their revision for their tests. A topic homework is due in twice this term; the list is attached at the bottom of this page.
PE this term will take place on Mondays and Fridays, so please make sure that PE kit is in school for these days. We also do our morning run when we can, so the children need their trainers for this.
If you have any questions about this term's work, please don't hesitate to ask!
