Dear Parents,

 

Welcome back. It has been great to see all the children back in school and ready to learn, we hope you have had a great summer.

 

We thought it would be helpful to give you an idea of what your child will be learning in school. Please find below, a summary of the learning Year 6 will be covering this term.

 

We will be challenging ourselves this term with a topic called conflict. We will be looking at different types of and reasons for conflict and how we might resolve the issues that cause conflict. This topic will span the curriculum and will include elements of geography, history, PSHE and science.

 

For regular updates about what happens in our classes, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter which is where we post the most regular updates. Please follow @G_M_P_SClass6RH and @G_M_P_SClass6PB.

- All of the children have received a username and password for this website and a brief letter of how to access the online games and activities that are on there. 

- Teachers have not yet set which activities they want your child to access, so for now we would like them just to explore the games that they wish to try. To do this click on the 'subjects' heading on the side menu. 

- Then choose English, maths or science and try games either at the age they are working at or below to build some confidence to begin with.

- Once your child's teacher has set any classwork for them to do on here they will let you know via Twitter and their year group page. This will be by the Easter holidays to enable your child to have time to work through their home learning packs first.

 

- If you have problems connecting please contact via email to the office which will be forwarded to me so I can sort any issues. 

 

Thanks, Mrs Perry.
