Welcome to Year 6
Please see here for the latest Year 6 updates and recent events. All letters for this year group can be found at the link below.
In English this term we will be studying poetry, biographies and journalistic writing. We will create river poems using a variety of poetic devices such as personification, alliteration, metaphors, similes and repetition. Look out for some on the Star Writer section of the school website soon.
Our Art/DT groups swap on November 13th. We would greatly appreciate any help with cooking for four weeks from 27th November. The children will be making pastry, empanadas (similar to pasties), brigadeiros (traditional Brazilian chocolate truffles) and fruit salad with a tropical touch.
For PE in the autumn term the children will complete blocks of gymnastics, yoga, football and basketball. We have also been fortunate to participate in a Brazilian dance workshop learning the styles of samba, salsa and capoeira.
6FM will continue to have PE on Mondays and Thursdays and 6W on Tuesdays and Fridays. PE kits need to be in school for these days please and as the weather is becoming colder, you may wish to provide your child with a plain dark-coloured tracksuit.
