This Terms Theme
'THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A WRITER’
Year six will be focusing on writers that have had an impact all over the world. JK Rowling, Charles Dickens, Roald Dahl, Anne Frank, Michael Rosen, William Shakespeare and Floella Benjamin have all left lasting legacies on the world of writing and the children will be exploring why. In addition to the creative elements, they will concentrate on the technical aspects of writing and what features contribute to various genres of writing.
P.E & Dance Days
Please ensure that a PE kit is brought into school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday. All items of PE kit (and school uniform) should be labelled with the child's name and class.
We will ensure that they are sent home at the end of every half term

Thursday 13th September 2018 - Reach Outdoors - The Dewerstone
Wow! What a fantastic day Eagles have had with Reach Outdoors. We have shown that we can work as a team and lots of us have really challenged ourselves to try new things. When doing our climbing, we all had to check that everyone was keeping up and talk to one another to help if someone was finding it difficult. Some of us were a bit unsure about gorge scrambling but once we started, it was AMAZING!
Monday 10th September 2018 - Maths - Multiplication
At the start of term, we have begun to think about our Maths skills. We have been using the dienes and other resources to help us visualise bigger numbers. In learning time, we have been ensuring that we are using the correct Mathematical language and showing our understanding by explaining our thoughts to others in the class. This is getting us to think deeper and apply our understanding in new concepts.
In July, we had a great transition day together. We worked so hard in our Writing and Art sessions that we have already completed a display ready for September.
