Friday 15th October
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had a lovely week observing the colour of light with our practical investigation. The children have been behaving so well in bikeability, a huge thank you to the children for being fantastic role models for the school.
Our learning next week:
In maths, the children will tackling some worded problems related to the units we have so far covered. We will use this as an opportunity to revise some of our key concepts before we progress to fractions.
In English, the children will be continuing their focus on WWI poetry, children who had bikeability still have this poetry to complete.
In foundation, children will be building their prototype periscopes using the cardboard they bring into school. We will be completing an art piece on our favourite book cover, recreating the design for our chosen book.
A few notices:
Parent consultations: Guidance will be sent out regarding the scheduled meetings. We have 2 days of allocated appointments – Tuesday & Thursday. If you are unable to attend, please contact the school office who will liaise with your class teacher and will get back to you with possible options.
Bikeability – Fireflies class are starting their sessions next week.
- The children partaking will need to come to school in clothes that are suitable for cycling outside. If your child is partaking in bikeability they can wear PE kit all week. If PE kit cannot be worn all week because it is muddy or wet, sportswear and appropriate mufti is also fine. Please can the children avoid shorts / skirts as it is not practical and leaves the legs unprotected. They do not need to get changed after bikeability has finished.
- If your child would like to leave their bike at school throughout the week, the bike will require a working lock and the bike must be chained to the bike sheds we have at school.
- Can children please drop their bike off at the bike sheds when they arrive at school, they will then collect it with their instructors at the start of the session.
- Children who have opted out of bikeability will have a usual timetable of maths and English.
PE next week: We do not have PE on Monday with the sports coaches, it has been rescheduled to Wednesday as a one off. Please can everyone wear school uniform on Monday.
Topic homework: We have decided to delay the sending home of topic homework. We wanted to avoid children and parents feeling that it was necessary to do work over the half-term, the topic homework will be set the first week back after half-term.
Cardboard: Calling all unused carboard! Please can your send your child into school with a cereal box. Cardboard boxes of other shapes are fine (amazon parcels and shoeboxes etc) but a cereal box works well for our periscopes.
The Year 6 Team.
