Welcome to Falcons
We hope that you all had a wonderful break and enjoyed time to relax and have fun.
For Year 6, this will be their final term at primary school and it promises to be a busy and exciting term for them. The national tests for Y6 (SATS) will take place during the week beginning Monday 13th May. Between now and then, it is even more important than usual that the children are in school every day and that they are completing their practice questions and reading homework conscientiously.
Following SATS, there will still be writing portfolios to complete and evidence for teacher assessments to collate, so Year 6 will continue to be working hard. We will be having a writing week, which will be surrounded by a fun and interesting topic to create many interesting pieces- adding to their writing portfolios.
Our History topic this term is all about the invasion of the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. We will be exploring this topic both in history and English: looking at dragons, legends and myths and information texts. We will also be looking at Danegeld and Edward the Confessor. Within our art/D.T lessons we will be looking to design and make either a long-ship or long- house.
P.E will be outside this term and it is essential that all children have a P.E kit and suitable footwear for participating in P.E lessons. Please refrain from having your child’s ears pierced until the summer holidays, as they will miss out on a lot of fun activities!
This term will also see the Y6 children participating in the summer production, as well as visits from a Viking long boat workshop, Roald Dahl writing workshop, Bible Explorers and a range of transition workshops preparing for life at secondary school. The residential trips will be coming up this term on 19th June, for those attending. There will also be a range of fun and engaging activities planned for those who are staying at school. The children will have the chance to visit their new secondary schools for move-up day, as well as receiving visits in school from most local secondary schools, who are keen to welcome their new recruits!
We wish all of you a very happy and successful final term at Westfield!
