Y6 Foljambe

Spring 1


Hello - I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas full of love, laughter and relaxation (and lots of chocolate!)

Our first Spring topic is called 'What Goes Around, Comes Around'. We will be using the novel 'Holes' by Louis Sachar - I love teaching this book and I'm sure the children are going to love it too! (Get your spades ready, kids!) Linking in to our circular-themed topic, in art we will be studying the artist Kandinsky and will be launching our topic with lots of fun art and design activities. Mrs Allen will be teaching Y6 all about Space and forces in science as well. 


Here are some key dates for your diary:

  • Monday 8th January - Back to school 
  • Wednesday 17th January - Y5/6 Athletics at STWCC (selected participants only)
  • Thursday 18th January - Young Voices concert (Choir members only)

As always, you know where I am if you have any questions.

Hello! Welcome back - I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are now ready and raring to go for the hard work and fun that comes with being in Y6. I love the start of the new academic year and can't wait to get started!


Our first topic for the Autumn term is 'What's in yer Bag?' where Foljambe class will learn all about World War Two across all areas of the curriculum. To launch our learning, we are going on a trip to Perlethorpe on the 11th September where we will be immersed in what life what was like during the war. The children (and us adults!) will need to dress up in WW2 clothing please to help add to the evacuee experience! I know we will have a fantastic day. 


Our class novel this term is 'Goodnight Mr Tom' - an absolute favourite of mine - and if you have managed to purchase a copy over the holidays, then please bring it in. 


PE kits need to be in school all week, please, with kit suitable for both indoor and outdoor lessons.
