Year 6 2018 to 2019
SPRING 2 NEWSLETTER
I hope you have all had a fantastic half term. I just want to start by saying a massive well done to the children for the last week of last half term. We had a practice SATs week completing tests in the hall. They managed this extremely well and achieved results to be proud of.
Spring 2 is going to be just as busy as Spring 1; we have lots of exciting learning and we will be looking for the children to demonstrate their very best behaviour, effort and attitude throughout their final year at primary school.
Boosters will be continuing this half term and the first session will be Thursday 21st March 3pm-4pm. All children also have their revision guides that they should be completing at home.
Our topic this half term will continue to be ’A Child’s War’. The children are thoroughly engaged in this and we are planning to end this topic with a Street Party to celebrate VE Day during the express event. Further details about this is follow.
Can I take the opportunity to remind you about the school visit to Crucial Crew on Thursday 14th March. All children have brought back their reply slips back but payments are still needed to be made via ParentPay. Children will need to bring a packed lunch for this school visit and wear correct school uniform.
Throughout the year we will be focusing on the basic skills across the curriculum. We will be encouraging the children to continue developing skills such as handwriting, reading, spelling and mathematics. In
English this half term the children will be producing an information text and narrative based of World War 2 and ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’.
The children will have a double session of PE the following week. The children will also complete the daily mile each afternoon. Please note the PE day is on a Friday.
Thank you for your support.
Miss Watson and the UKS2 team.

Because our topic this term has been ‘A child’s war’, we have decided to celebrate the end of our topic with a street party.
