Welcome Super Six to your class page
Welcome back to our Summer 1 term. I trust everyone has had a relaxing Easter break (and enjoyed some chocolate and sunshine). School is still a little different to what you remember due to Covid-19 changes, but it is still your school. We will be starting at 9 a.m. and finish at 3.00 p.m. for those who will be in school. Please do read the return to school guidance that has been forwarded on parentmail. You only need to bring your P.E. kit and your packed lunch if you have one.
As I write and look out of the window this time, the snowdrops have finished and the Camellia is looking spelndid as we move through Spring into Summer. In Summer 1 term our topic is science based. We are going to focus on "What's it like inside me?" This includes being able to identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood; recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way our bodies function and describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans. I hope we will be able to do hands-on science with the dissection of a pig heart.
In English we will use Talk for Writing to enable us to produce further pieces of writing, beginning with biographies - which links in with our science topic. In maths we will be moving on to work with angles following our remote learning of geometry. We will continue learning French beginning with a topic on shopping and money (links to maths). In science we are continuing to build on our previous knowledge and investigate classification further - this will be done through our Forest School work. In computing we are going to be looking at how to create and use spreadsheets. I am hoping we will begin work on our Summer production too.
P.E. will be Monday and Thursday but please ensure you keep your kit in school all week as we may have other opportunities.
Homework will be given on a Friday to be returned the following Thursday, we will mark this together as a learning curve.
If parents need to contact me, please email me via firstname.lastname@example.org

Following school closures, we have decided to make the children’s learning experience streamlined and as simplistic as possible. Therefore we will ensure that we upload content ready for Monday mornings. The Government advice is that primary schools should have approximately three hours of work per day. With this in mind, St Mary’s will concentrate on at least three areas of study per day which will vary from year group to year group and may change each week.
The work will begin from tomorrow Wednesday 6th January.
To supplement your child’s learning, we will be offering CGP books at a significantly discounted price which the office will need to know by Friday the 8th January. These books have been handpicked by the teachers in order to best support the needs of the children. These are available via the school office.
Books for Year 6
KS2 Ancient Greeks Targeted Study and Question Book - Y6 (code HEB21) £3.50 each payment to the school office by Parentpay please
Reading Comprehension Y6 Study and question book (code EGC21) £1.85 each payment to the school office by Parentpay please
Should you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your class teacher through their regular Gmail address.
Y6 wrote some war poems for our Remembrance service. Although we couldn't have our usual service in school, to which you would have been invited, we still had a short service of respect in our bubbles on the playground. We decided in Y6 to record our own service and here is a link for you to watch it. Please note that the service continues after the two minute silence. We hope you enjoy.
