We have had a great half term in year 6. The children have settled in really well and we have established some great routines for learning. We are working really hard towards our SATs tests in May.
Homework is now up and running – the children will come home each week with a SPaG, reading and a maths assignment. Each task should take about 20 minutes. Thank you so much to all parents for your help in getting the children organised with their homework. Most children have completed assignments on time ready to be marked.
We have had great fun learning about ancient Greece in our topic work. The children have learned about the differences between Athens and Sparta, the difficulty of studying history when there is limited source material, the geography of ancient Greece, religious practices of the Greeks and much, much more. Next half term, we plan to have a party based on the theme of ancient Greece to celebrate the end of the topic (more information about this in due course).
Recently the children have enjoyed poetry day on the theme of food and a really fun drumming session delivered by the Luton Music Service.
There is so much to look forward to next half term including, producing art work on the 12 Labours of Hercules, a visit from a local Imam to teach the children about Islam and learning about the human circulatory system in science. So keep your eyes peeled for more updates!
