Welcome back to another busy half term!
We are on the countdown to Christmas – my personal favourite holiday!!
This half term the value that we will focus on will be self-regulation. Who will be our champion? Over the next few months, we need to be demonstrating our other values: focus, boundaries, respect, independence and resilience to help us achieve our best. We are celebrating our in-class achievements using Class Dojo.
Over the next half term we have planned some exciting unique experiences: gardening, a trip to the Apple store and Christmas fun!
Our curriculum topic is The Mayans. They were an ancient civilisation that lived in and around Mexico. In English our books are going to linked to belonging.
Homework: Year 6 will be given spellings to learn and will be tested the following Friday. Times tables need to be learnt to aid fluency. The will be given a menu of homework choices and the expectation is that the children complete at least one activity every two weeks.
PE: We will have PE on a Monday and games on a Friday. PE kit needs to be in on these days but it is recommended that it stays in school all week. Correct kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or dark blue shorts / leggings / jogging bottoms and trainers or plimsolls. Longer hair needs to be tied up and ear-rings must be removed or covered.
