Welcome to Year 6
Thank you to all the parents who have responded to their child's invite to booster clubs and a huge thank you for making the effort to ensure your child is at school by 8am or is collected at 4.30pm. We really appreciate your support and feel certain the children will benefit from these additional lessons.
The children have all enjoyed writing a story from their imaginations this week - and we have certainly enjoyed reading them.

The Terrible Tudors
During this half term, we will be discovering how the Tudors came to rule England and what legacies they have left behind. We will also be learning about the dark deeds they did whilst ruling the country.
The children will also have time to follow lines of inquiry which interest them and create a presentation for the rest of the class.
Our topics for the rest of the year will be:
P5 - Climb Every Mountain
P6 - Think BIG!
More information on each topic will be available of the beginning of the teaching period.
