Welcome back! We hope everyone had a good Easter break and is ready for the term ahead.


This week we will be starting revision. Maths and English will both have various focuses over the next few weeks depending on the needs of individuals/ groups. We will also be focusing on test technique over the next few weeks.


Our DT, work continues looking at Skyscrapers. We will be creating our designs this week.


In Science, we will be looking at the circulatory system over the next few weeks. This will start off by seeing what we have remembered from our Year 4 work on this.


PE days will be on a Monday and a Wednesday for the whole of Year 6. Please keep your kit in school everyday in case you need it.



Any newspapers for our art work would be appreciated.

Also, if children have an old shirt/t-shirt they can bring to school as an art apron, could they bring these in from Monday?

Thank you!!
