Dear Parents,                                                                            

Welcome back! I hope you all had a restful half term break.

In Rowan class this term we are studying the Victorians.  So far we have looked at different people who were influential during the Victorian period, in particular Florence Nightingale, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Queen Victoria. We are also linking our topic to our literacy work, where we will be writing newspaper reports and biographies on famous Victorians and then moving onto poetry writing. Our Literacy lessons will continue to use the writing project IPEELL strategy as well as working on grammatical terms in our spelling and grammar lessons.

In maths this term we are learning about decimals and percentages as well as Algebra and Ratio. We will be using a variety of concrete objects in order to help us with our learning as well as using pictorial and written methods.

In Science we will be studying forces. We will be combining this with our topic and DT work by designing and making wheeled vehicles . In RE we will be examining the religion of Hinduism; in particular the beliefs and questions that this religion poses.

PE will be taught on a Tuesday by Mrs A. Tilley, but please ensure that your child has a PE Kit in school all week.  Just a reminder that we do expect a full P.E. kit to contain clothing suitable for outside P.E. too.  Mrs Gladwin will teach Latin to Year 6 on a Friday.  This term Mrs Koralambe will be teaching music to Rowan class. On Thursdays, Rowan class will be swimming.

Planners – will be checked every Friday morning.  We expect Planners to be signed for that week when we check them each Friday morning.  We will sign them too. Just a reminder that homework should be handed in by Tuesday morning at the latest. The children seem to be responding well to the homework booklets – please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions about any particular part of the homework this term.  

Study Club for Year 6’s continues to be on a Wednesday until 4:15. Please remember to bring a drink and a snack!

Many thanks for your continued support,

Yours sincerely,

Miss Kate Purling
