All new transition information will be put onto this page whenever we recieve it. Our first important date is : Wednesday 22nd June 2022. Visitors from New Mills School will be working with year 6 10am-12pm.
We have an exciting but busy term ahead of us! Please look at the newsletter for important dates.
This is our exciting, new programme : that covers science, geography, history, art and design and technology. Our theme is called, 'Sow, Grow and Farm.' Within that, our science topic is 'Human Reproduction'. Having a theme that is cross-curricular enables the children to really understand that particular project.
We will be continuing with puberty for the first three weeks of this term, so that all aspects have been covered.
We will be looking at the topic of 'What do religions say to us when life gets hard?'. We will continue to look at this from a Hindu and Christian prospective.
We will be looking at variables in games.
Thank you for your continued support in getting your child in on time for school. Our school day starts at 8:45am, so children need to be here for 8:40am please. This is important for all children, but even more so for our year 6 children, so that they can ensure that they are well-practiced for getting to secondary school on time.
Children can use their login information for Times Tables Rock Stars and Spelling Shed.
These apps are the main source for our homework but other homework will be given as we progress through the year in order to prepare children for the next stage in their education. The TT Rock Stars and Spelling Shed homework is set every week and is vitally important for your child’s continuing development in school. We see this partnership between school work and home work as the key to their success.
The children are developing their skills in English and Maths; enabling them to progress well in their work, either independently or as part of a team.
