We hope you all had a lovely half term! We are looking forward to all the learning that will take place in term 4, especially our continuing topic on World War II.
Year 6 is an exciting time for all pupils: they are the eldest in the school, there is the opportunity to take part in a special activity week, the end of year prom and preparations for moving on to year 7 in various secondary schools.
In year 6, our collective theme is birds of prey with the classes named:
Miss Quinn (Head of year and class teacher)
Ms Franklin (LSA)
Mrs Annoot (Class Teacher)
Mrs Twynam (LSA)
Miss Griffiths (LSA)
Mrs Atkinson (Class Teacher)
Mrs Chappell (LSA)
Mrs Leach and Mrs Hollings (Class Teacher)
Mrs Wilson (LSA)
Mrs Stephens, Mrs Martinez and Mrs Wright will also be taking a Maths and Literacy set daily.
This academic year we are asking that all the children come into school wearing their PE kit on their allocated PE days.
Kestrels - Wednesdays and Thursdays
Hawks - Wednesdays and Thursdays
Falcons - Wednesdays and Thursdays
Eagles - Wednesdays and Thursdays
Our new topic for term 1 and 2 is all about the Ancient Mayas. We will be learning about: their culture, how they have impacted our lives today and key locations.

DVDs and short animations
Over the course of the year to support the children’s learning, we will be showing a variety of short animations and DVDs. Some of these will have the rating ‘PG’.
