Welcome to summer term! I hope that you enjoyed spending time with those you love the most and feel rested and of course, ate too much chocolate!

 

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all and starting the summer term together. Our history topic this half term is going to be, “The Suffragettes”.  In science we will be finishing our unit on materials and then we will be focussing on “Light”. We will also be finishing our geography unit on “Mountains”.

 

For Year 6, SATS are just around the corner (week beginning 13th May). If you feel that your child would benefit from some extra practise ahead of them starting, please use the booklets that were sent home last term. If you would like any additional resources, please let me know.
