Carpe Diem - Seize the Day
Welcome to Year 6 - The Eagles
This term our topic will be ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’. We will be learning about what life was like during World War 2. We will be studying the book 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll and we will be visiting Llangollen Railway, where we will travel on the steam train dressed as evacuees, hopefully gaining an insight to life during the time of conflict.
Please, could you remind your child to hand their 'Home Link Book and 'Reading Journal' in every day, any messages should be recorded in the 'Home Link Book' and reading should be recorded in the 'Reading Journal'. Year 6 are encouraged to read at least six times a week and to write a brief summary of what they have read. It is also helpful to make a note of interesting vocabulary or phrases to magpie for their own writing. The children all have login details for the online site https://readtheory.org/ where they can complete online comprehension papers.
We have also included log on details in the front cover of children's homelink books for SPAG.com, Mathletics and Spellzone. These are excellent sites that will help children regularly practise skills they have learnt in school and provide children with a way of focusing on a certain areas that they perhaps feel they need to improve.
Homework will be given on a Friday and should be returned on Thursday.
I have also included links to literacy, numeracy and science websites which will assist your learning. If you know of any useful websites, please let me know so I can add them for other people to access.
