Dear parents and carers
Welcome back to term 6. We have a very exciting term ahead of us, with sports day, the summer fair and year 6’s end of term production.
In class, we will be finding out about the Mayan empire and how their civilization grew so rapidly, and how it ended. We will also be creating our own tapestries and ask for a voluntary donation of £2 towards materials for this.
Our PE lessons will be on a Monday morning (indoor) and Thursday afternoon (Outdoor). Please ensure children have appropriate PE kit, including footwear.
Our focus for home this term remains to be on reading and spelling. Please remember to encourage your children to read, at least three times a week, and record this in their reading records. These should be brought in on a Monday. It is your child’s responsibility to change their book once they have read it. If you happen to have any at home, please hand them into your child’s teacher. Children are encouraged to practise their spellings, at home, daily. This can be done by simply saying, writing and checking their spellings. The children have also learnt many other ways to practice their spellings at home, please see your child’s teacher if you would like support with this.
Finally, if at any point, you need to talk to us, please call the office, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or try and catch us at the beginning or end of the day.
Mrs Sharp and Mrs Cooper
Possible home learning opportunities:
Do some Mayan cooking. They liked spices, Cocoa and fruit. Try researching popular flavours and recipes, then recreate these at home.
Create your family tree.
Make a news report about something that interests you. Research the topic, remembering the 5 questions stems (who, what, where, when, how) when creating your report.
