Welcome back to our new Year 6's!
We hope you enjoyed your summer holidays and found some time to relax as this year is going to be BUSY! We have so many things planned for you and we are extremely excited to get started. We know that some of you may be feeling a little apprehensive about your return to school - it's been a long time for some of you since you last sat in a classroom but we want you to know that everything will be okay and it's okay to feel a little bit nervous. We'll let you in on a secret - even we feel it too! We will be there for you on the first day back to welcome you into school and settle you in and if you do have any worries, please come and talk to us so that we can try to make you feel comfortable and happy.
Before we start with any learning, we will go through all of the things that you need to know which might be new to you and might not have been systems in school before covid-19. This will help to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to keep you safe and help you learn to the best of your ability. Once we have settled back in, we will get to the good bits! What are we going to learn?
Well, we will start our term off with citizenship week, we have a book 'The Bottle of Happiness' which we will be the focus for our learning for the first couple of weeks. In Geography, we will be learning all about rainforests. In History, our focus will be on the Aztecs, I wonder if you already know anything about this area? For Maths, we will start the term by developing our understanding of place value and number knowledge. We will also be starting to learn a new language with Mrs Moxon, I wonder if you can guess which language this will be? Miss Tipple is really excited to be sharing one of her favourite books with you as your class novel - 'The Wolf Wilder' by Katherine Rundell. She also writes 'The Explorer' which we will look at extracts from to support our rainforest learning.
We have a lot of exciting lessons planned for you and hope that you are eager to get back to learning in school - we are looking forward to meeting you all and finding out more about you.
Miss Tipple, Mrs Moxon, Mrs Blakeley and Mrs Robson
