Welcome back to school, 6B!
We hope you have had a fantastic summer and are rested and ready to go! Mrs McGregor and I certainly are and we're looking forward to hearing all about what you've been doing! We can't wait to get going with our learning this term. Here's a bit about what we'll be learning about...
Our learning in the Autumn Term
This term our topic is all based around World War 2 where we will be learning about other aspects of the war that we didn't cover last time. We will be looking at a timeline of all the key events, rationing and the Holocaust.
In our writing, for the first half of term, we will be looking at a text called 'Star of Fear, Star of Hope' by Jo Hoestalandt. In our reading, we will be working on two texts: 'Poems from the Second World War' selected by Gaby Morgan and 'When we were warriors' by Emma Carroll.
In our maths work, our first focus is on number and place value and then we will move onto the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. On these days we ask that your child comes to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.
Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and school jumper. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
Outdoor Shoes and Coats
Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.
Please also ensure your child has a pair of outdoor shoes as our play area is on the school field. We will be using the field as much as possible.
