Year 6




Welcome to Year 6 and the second part of the Summer Term! This is your last half term at St. Mary's so get ready to make it the best one yet!


Our history topic this half term is all about World Wat Two!  We will be reading Letters From The Lighthouse by Emma Carroll which is set in this time period and will help us with our history lessons too! This book will have us on the edge of our seats when the main character is solving his sister's strange disappearance and the possibility that she might be a spy. Our English writing and guided reading lessons will be based around this story and we will be writing newspapers, persuasive letters, informal letters and discussion tests. 



Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be brought back into school on Wednesday. In addition to this, all children should be reading at home for 10 minutes every single day and please remember to record this in your reading diaries. Do not forget to practise your spellings in your spelling log and on Spelling Shed for our weekly test every Friday.


Please wear your PE uniform to school on a Monday and Friday and make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather! This half term we will be doing hockey so all children will need to ensure that they have shin pads and gum shields with them on a Friday for our lesson.


Please bring your coat to school every day so we can all enjoy our breaktimes outside.
