Year 6




Welcome to Year 6 and the first part of the Spring Term!


Our geography topic this half term is all about South America's Trade and Economy!  We will be reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. This book will have us on the edge of our seats when a plane crashes in the middle of The Amazon Rainforest. Our English writing and guided reading lessons will be based around this story and we will be writing diaries, a persuasive advert and an information text. 



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 Tuesday and Friday and make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather!


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