Dear Parents,

This term we are so excited to immerse ourselves in the Animal Kingdom through not only our English lessons, but also in Geography and Science. We will explore how some well known and some lesser known creatures are under threat of extinction and how we can help to save them. Our research into biomes will also give us an insight into some of the unique habitats that these creatures live in. 


We have our second group of children going out for their much anticipated Forest School lessons this term, which are sure to packed with some wonderful woodland problem solving and creative activities to get their brains working whilst filling their lungs with the fresh Winter air.


Spelling, Reading and Grammar remains a huge focus this term and we really rely on the support of the adults at home to continually practise these skills as they fit into day-to-day living.


Mr Hobby and Mr Elgar are very much looking forward to meeting as many of our children's parents/ carers as possible at this term's Parent's Evening.


Please do not hesistate to update us with the achievement that progress of your children at home and we look forward to sharing our efforts with you at the end of the year.


Best wishes,

The Year 6 Team.
