Welcome back to Term 5. A five-week term with a lot going on to keep Year 6 busy, motivated, focused and rewarded.
We are getting close to summer and the end of Year 6, let's celebrate in style by learning about carnivals from across the globe and from the past culminating in our very own at Willowcroft!
SATs (13th May - 16th May) Week 3
That time of year has come round so quick but we are ready to take them on and give them our absolute best! Boosters will continue right up to the week before SATs. The timetable for SATs week is as follows:
Monday: SPaG and Spelling papers
Tuesday: Reading paper
Wednesday: Maths Arithmetic and Problem Solving 1
Thursday: Maths Problem Solving 2
Friday: No papers.
SATs results will come out with end of year reports in July.
Alongside all the hard-work Year 6 have put into preparing for SATs in school, during boosters and at home, please remember...
Once SATs are finished, we will put our attention towards the end-of-year production! More exciting news to follow soon!
Term 5 dates
25th April: School disco
6th May: Bank holiday
13th May - 16th May: SATs week
24th May: End of term and non-uniform
It's going to be hard to top all the events of last term but we have an exciting topic and trip ahead of us in Term 4.
Our Pirate themed topic this term is 'Troubled Waters'. We will be designing and making our own pirate ships to battle and we will be visiting The Mary Rose in Portsmouth.
PE and Archery
PE continues on Tuesdays and we will be very lucky to receive archery lessons every Friday afternoon this term.
These will begin first week back so please could I have consent forms in by the first week so that I know who is walking home or being collected from the office at 4pm. Although each session of booster club is not optional, I am aware that sometimes these can clash with other commitments after school. Please could you ensure a message gets to myself or the office if your child is unable to attend any session.

6th and 7th March: Parent teacher interviews
7th March: Dress up for World Book day

Yenworthy Day 1
We arrived safely and settled in well. The children enjoyed the low rope course and the Moorland walk in the dark finding rocks and edible plants. The children slept well on the first night after a full on day. This morning, we woke up to amazing views of the coast and snow!

Welcome to Falcons Class 2018
This year the Falcons will be taught by Mr Doman and supported by Mrs Newman. We are a Year 6 class and have an exciting year ahead with lots to look forward to. I look forward to welcoming you to Year 6 on our Meet the Teacher day (Wednesday 12th September).
I will hand out spellings each week and I expect the children to make a real effort to learn them. My Maths homework is set every week. If you lose your log in, please come and see me and I will print you out another. The children count daily, and I would really appreciate your help with their times tables. The more they count at home, the easier it becomes in class.
Term 1 - Health and Happiness
What is a healthy diet? What are the benefits of exercise? Is there an inspirational quote that means a lot to you?
PE this term will be on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will need to be prepared to be on the field, so I advise you to pack them with indoor and outdoor trainers. In the colder months we will still go outside where possible so please include track suit bottoms and a jumper. Yoga will be taught on Wednesday afternoons and children will still need appropriate PE kit for these sessions. Year 6 will be swimming at The Wave on Thursday mornings for this term.
We have a brand new house point and achievement system in place this year. Please ask your child if they have been collecting any 'Amethysts'
