Welcome to Foljambe Year 6 class. A new year and a new term begins, exciting opportunities! I hope you have had a lovely summer whatever you did and wherever you went, I look forward to hearing the children share.
To begin the new year our topic is The Amazing Americas, our history base is to study a non-European society that provides a contrast with British history and our geography base is to locate countries, look at biomes and vegetation belts (the rainforest) as well as human and physical geography aspects. To launch our topic we have arranged for Meet a Creature to bring a selection of South American rainforest creatures, including a very cuddly chinchilla, into school on Monday September 10th, please ensure you have completed paperwork for this so no-one misses out. Our art will be based around South America and the Brazilian artist Britto, music will include Latin fusion.
We will be reading a lovely story by Eva Ibbotson called Journey to the River Sea, should you have a copy please could you bring it in to school for us to use, thank you.
Year 6 is an exciting year, we will be electing House Captains, the children will be spending time with their buddies in reception, helping them to settle in and adapt to school life. Most importantly the year 6 children take a role in worship and get to sit on chairs!
Homework will be given on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Please don't struggle with homework, just ask Mrs Allen or myself for any guidance.
P.E. is timetabled for Monday afternoon, however please ensure P.E. kits are in school all week as sometimes we have other opportunities.
