We hope you all had a fantastic break after a fabulous first half term in Year 6. We were both really impressed with the efforts you put in as you started Year 6 and can't quite believe all that we have managed to achieve already!
In English, we tackled a really interesting unit together - narrative poetry. We read a range of poems that told different stories, including 'The Highwayman', 'The Slave's Dream' and 'What has happened to Lulu?'. Each poem raised so many discussion points and we were impressed with just how all our pupils immersed themselves in this work. It has resulted in some powerful writing and fascinating debates and discussions.
In maths, we have taken our topic of 'Place Value' to new levels, ordering and rounding large numbers. We then moved on to working on our four operations and have tackled some engaging reasoning questions around these rules. Remember to keep learning your times tables - these will help you with all areas of maths.
Outside maths and English, we have studied 'Heart and Lungs' in Science, fossils in art, throw tennis in PE, the rainforest in Humanities and music, Humanism in R.E and 'Being Me in My World' in PSHE.
In addition to all this varied work within the classroom, many pupils also went on our outwards bound trip to North Wales. We hope you have all managed to look at the amazing photos from the week and that these will give you memories to treasure forever. A big well done to those pupils who stayed in school during the week too - you were superstars and tackled your project work brilliantly!
Here's to another positive, busy half term in Falcons!

Welcome to Year 6, Falcons! We are both really looking forward to getting to know you this year. Keep an eye on this class page, which we will update every half term with a round up of our news. Our main Year 6 page is where you will find useful documents (for example our homework timetable and the curriculum overview). Year 6 is a fabulous year at primary school and we hope that you are going to seize all of the opportunities open to you!
