Welcome to Year 6 and thank you for joining us!

- Weekly Spelling Test every Friday
- Homework to be returned on Tuesdays
Please see Mrs Steers if there is anything you would like to discuss.
During the spring term, Year 6 will be studying the captivating and haunting traditional tale - Hansel and Gretel. We will be following them in their journey of cruelty, fear and desperation whilst exploring how to write a dual narrative.
We have weekly spelling texts every Friday which concentrates on the Year 5 and 6 statutory lists, as well as other spelling patterns that the children need to be able to use. Please see the statutory list below to see some of the spellings we will be focusing on throughout the year.
For the beginning of the spring term we will be focusing on the children's knowledge and understanding of fractions and percentages. Maths lessons are fun, engaging and they encourage children to have a deeper understanding of this subject, by allowing them to use reasoning and higher level thinking skills.
Pupils will be able to apply what they already know about this area to help them solve more challenging concepts, such as finding fractions of different quantities.
Last term, pupils had an amazing time when they went on residential to Colomendy - North Wales.
Colomendy is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in beautiful woodland with views of Moel Famau.
Pupils had the opportunity to push themselves to the limits whilst participating in high-intensity activities, including a high ropes course woven amongst the trees.
Pupils loved their experience and were extremely saddened to come home!
