Year 6 have started the Spring term with enthusiasm for their new topics. We will be learning about WWI and WWII and have started our class text: Rose Blanche which has already produced lots of wonderful writing in a variety of genres.
In science, we are learning about electricity where the children will choose a circuit of their choice to form a part of their Anderson Shelter forming cross curricular links with Design and Technology.
Times Table Superstars
We have a challenge for you...are you ready?
We want EVERY child to have achieved as many new times table badges as they can! Can you get Platinum before you leave?
- When you go to bed in the evening, repeat a times table fact for every step you take towards your bedroom.
- You can download apps on phones/ipads including: 'Hit the Button', 'Times Table Game' and '10 Minutes a Day Times Tables'.
- Practise with a family member or friend.
- Practise your doubles/halves.
*WELL DONE TO ALL OF OUR YEAR 6'S TO ACHIEVE A NEW TIMES TABLE SUPERSTAR BADGE!*

Fairthorne Deposits... PAYMENTS DUE
Please pay all Fairthorne deposits as soon as possible to confirm your child's place on our end of year trip to Fairthorne. The experience is incredibly rewarding and provides the children with excellent opportunities to build on their independence skills before heading off to secondary school.
If you have ANY questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school office and ask for Miss Clarke.
*** FINAL PAYMENTS must be in by 29th March***
With SATs creeping up on us, we want to make sure that you are feeling confident and prepared. Take a look at some of our Top Tips below!
Year 6 have their own educational blog! Friends and family can visit the page and delve into the learning of both Redwood and Juniper Class. Anyone can read and leave a comment, the more the better! The children are aware of how to keep safe when using the blog at school and at home. If you are visiting the blog for the first time, please take a look at the E-safety and Rules pages at the top of the page. To enter the blog, click here.
