Things that you can do to keep yourself busy whilst you are not in school.
This term we are looking at the natural world in science and how things are classified. In English, already, we have written our modern fairy tales. In computing, we are looking at the ways that computers solve complex problems. In PSHE, we have been finding out about discrimination and who gets discriminated against. In DT, we have started exploring different types of bridges and their uses. We are designing our own and then building models.
We have updated our vocabulary words, can you explain what they mean and use them when you are talking?
We get house points for using these words!!
We have a very busy year ahead of us and lots going on. Just a few reminders:-

- this term we will be swimming on a Thursday and kit is required. The cost of this is £2.50 a session
- reading is such a big part of year 6 so we need reading books to be read daily and changed regularly. They should be brought in everyday.
