A busy term ahead for the Year 6 children, lots going on with their exciting transition to secondary school!
Our topic this term will be A child's war.
How did World War 2 affect Wales? Why were children evacuated from their homes? In this project children will explore:
What it was like to be an evacuee
the impact of evacuation on children and their families
the daily life of a child in wartime Wales
why some parts of Wales were more vulnerable to bombing than others.
It promises to be a busy but exciting last term for our Year 6 children. Remember to keep checking our class dojo app for regular updates on important dates and events!
Blwyddyn newydd dda a chroeso yn ôl - Happy New Year and welcome back! This term our topic is Frozen Kingdom. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Wrap up well!
The children will research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco-systems and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights. Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox; hunting rodents and swift as the wind!
Blood heart - this terms topic
Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry...blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let's explore your circulation system! Now surgeons, don't be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies.
William Harvey was fascinated with anatomy and made ground-breaking discoveries about valves. Why do people give blood? What are the different blood groups? I wonder what you will discover?
Autumn Term 2017
I would like to welcome your child back to school for the autumn term for their final year in primary school. Personally, I am looking forward to this year and I am sure that the children will settle in quickly and look forward to the many challenges ahead. I would like to share the following information with you.
Mrs. Swift is the learning support assistant within the class. She will be supporting your child in and out of the class over the coming year as well as during visits to secondary school.
It is always lovely to see the children wearing school uniform, it’s something they will have to get used to wearing next year, and I hope to see the children wearing Fenton uniform as often as possible. Please make sure that your child’s name is clearly marked on all items of clothing.
We place great importance on helping the children become independent readers and to find reading as something to be enjoyed. Reading books are available to go home every day. Please encourage your child to read to you and with you. If you have any questions about your child’s reading or how to help them please do not hesitate to ask. Reading books must come back to school every day, even if you haven’t had the opportunity to read with them. By doing this your child will have more opportunities to read in school.
PE lessons will take part on a Thursday. All children require P.E. kit.
PE kit – T-shirt and shorts/joggers, jumper and trainers.
As with school uniform, all P.E. kit should be clearly marked with your child’s name.
As a class, we will be swimming in the Autumn Term every Tuesday afternoon.
Children can bring in their own fruit from home or they can purchase a piece of fruit for 20p from our Fruit Shop at break.
I am sure that we’ll have a great time in 6V this year, and I will strive to ensure that your child has the best opportunities to further develop. The year will fly by really quickly and before you know it the children will be off to secondary school. If you have any queries about the educational progress or general well-being of your child, my door is always open for you to come in to have a chat with me.
Thanks for your cooperation.
