News and Reminders:


*Coats - please ensure that your child brings a coat to school every day.  Even on days where it does not seem like it is going to rain, it quite often does!  It is therefore important that they bring in a coat to ensure that they stay warm and dry.



*PE Days - Term 3: Tuesday (Indoor) and Friday (Outdoor)

Please ensure your child has their named PE kit in school on these days each week.  Our PE on Tuesdays is Dance, where we are creating a series of dances based on aspects of World War 2.  Your child will need their water bottle in school every Tuesday, in addition to a short-sleeved top and shorts/leggings.  Our PE every Friday is handball, which will be taking place on the MUGA with Mrs Rayden.  Please ensure that your child has a long-sleeved top and long pair of trousers for these lessons, as we will be going out every week whether it is raining or not!





Our topic this term is World War 2.  We are visiting the Steam Museum to have a 'WW2 experience day' and are also lucky enough to be having a couple of visitors in to talk to us about their experiences.


We are primarily reading these four books to help us gain a better understanding of the topic:

- Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll

- Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

- Once by Morris Gleitzman

- My Secret War Diary by Marcia Williams

The Year 6 children will be taking their SATs in May 2019.  Please don't feel that it is necessary to do any extra work outside school to prepare your children; however, if you would like to find out more information then click the links below or pop into school to ask us any questions you might have.
