Welcome to the Spring Term!
Our theme for this term is 'ONE WORLD' - a topic that covers a variety of different areas. Citzienship, PSHE, Geography and more will be covered this term as we aim to teach the children all about the world and how we all live together as one world.
Our children will be creating their own unique island later on this term with which they will be doing lots of super work that will relate to the topic. It would be wonderful if you could share any stories about places you have visited outside of the UK so they can have more ideas for their work later in the term!
Children will have home learning much more regularly in Year 6. This is to prepare them for home learning routines they will have in secondary school. It is very important that every child reads for half an hour daily. Children will also be given word activities or spelling investigations to complete. It would be very helpful for them to have a dictionary at home. Maths home learning should be completed every day. Home learning is also set on Education City (which can be found at www.educationcity.co.uk) - all Year 6 children have their own log in details.
This term, P.E. is changing slightly. We have a hockey coach working with the children on Friday afternoons and as such, outdoor P.E. on a Friday will alternate between the classes. Please can you make sure that children have both their indoor and outdoor P.E. kits on both Monday and Friday.
Children need to come prepared with appropriate P.E. kit. - without it, they will not be able to take part and will miss out on their learning in P.E.
In the spring term children will review their safety rules, practise problem solving, develop strategies for resisting peer group pressure and also how to recognise and deal with risk. They will also explore the need to look beneath the surface, and not be misled by information and appearance. They will identify those people who they trust, and this will be used to develop a Network of Support. They will be able to assess how safe they feel in the school and grounds. They will be able to define honesty, and practise this by exploring some dilemmas. Children will be able to identify and name body parts, including intimate body parts and understand the rules about personal boundaries, including knowing the difference between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ touches and when to tell. They will demonstrate that they can assess different levels of risk.
