English

The children have all really enjoyed this term's English topics and they have produced some excellent work; we look forward to displaying it for you at Exhibition Evening.  After Easter we will spend a few weeks focusing on grammar to help prepare the children for their SATs.  The links below will take you to some useful activities that you could use at home to support their learning.

Maths

After a  very busy term we have now covered all of the topics within the Year 6 mathematics curriculum.  We will be using the last few weeks before SATs to help the children revise before the exams in May.  If you wish to support your child's learning, the websites below are a useful place to start.

Science

We have enjoyed studying Light, Evolution, and the circulatory system in Spring Term.  Next term, we will be developing our understanding of classification before finishing off our Year 6 Science study by exploring SRE.

PE

We have recently been choreographing and performing a class dance to 'Come Alive' from The Greatest Showman.  In outdoor PE we have been developing our tennis skills.

In the Summer Term we will be playing rounders, athletics and cricket.

 

Events of note

Twelve children from the year group recently attended the annual Hertsmere Youth Conference.  The day provided an opportunity for us to learn about democracy and local Borough governance.
