Please be aware that all children are expected to have their PE kit in school every Monday ready for the week ahead - we will be checking this so please support your child by helping them organise themselves.
Please see our Autumn Term Curriculum Newsletter for details on what we will be learning until the end of the term.
Year 6 Homework Project Autumn Term – first half term
This half term, all Year 6 children are expected to produce a project on the theme of ANCIENT GREECE. The children can choose any aspect of Ancient Greece that they would like to learn more about and research it over the next 6 weeks. Everyone will be expected to present their finished work to the class during the last week of the half term so all projects should be in school on Monday 21st October. It would be helpful if you could support your child in practising how they will present their work in an interesting and informative way.
The project could take the form of written work and/or art work, it could be a 3D model or perhaps a combination of all of these. We appreciate that some children would like to create a Powerpoint presentation or even a video for their projects but unfortunately these cannot be brought into school via email attachment or memory stick. If necessary, work can be printed out and used.
Some suggestions for projects are below but children are welcome to choose their own Ancient Greece-related topic. It should be something they are genuinely interested in and would like to find out more about. For example:
It is important that these projects are the children’s own work - there is no value to printing pages from the internet. Giving the children this responsibility for an ongoing piece of homework is good practise for secondary school and we hope they enjoy the flexibility of this task.
Martial Arts Trial
On 11th September we were fortunate enough to be given a sample martial arts lesson to see if we want to join the after school martial arts club. We had an introduction to the correct stance and also how to do basic punches and kicks. As you can see from our photos, we had lots of fun - especially when we got to punch the pads held by Mrs Filisetti!
