P.E. will be on a Thursday afternoon this term, please may all children have the correct uniform on time for this. We will be learning netball. Homework will still be alternating English and maths, needing to be handed in on a Monday.
18.09.2017 Year 6 have already begun looking at the effect of rationing on the home front and have created their own Dover 'Dig for Victory' posters which are on display in the Year 6 corridor. Linked to this and with kind thanks to the generous donation from the seed company Thompson & Morgan, the children have already explored the germination of broad beans as part of science and will soon be planting our own 'dig for victory' indoor garden.
Check out the photographs in the gallery of the beans in a jar experiments.
20.09.2017 As promised at the Parent Evening on the 20th September, we have now added a SATs tab to the Year 6 page.
Currently you will find a few examples of the types of maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) questions that your children will be tackling in May.
As we progress through the year we will add much more to this file, so please ensure that you are checking it regularly.
Quick reminder to Year 6 that your Term 1 and 2 Homework project is due in on Monday 27th November. If you have forgotten all about it, head over to the homework tab and have a look, you still have 11 days to get your project completed. Miss Biot and I are very excited to see what you have produced.
Year 6 have completed their WWII topic with a visit to Dover Castle and Operation Dynamo war tunnels. Despite the snow and bitterly cold weather, Year 6 had a fantastic trip and learnt lots about Operation Dynamo and the important role that Dover played in this.
The children also had the opportunity to present their fantastic WWII game homework projects which were absolutely brilliant - Well done Year 6!
Happy New Year.
This Term, Year 6 will be having the support of the Sports Coaches and so our PE slot will move from a Wednesday afternoon, to Monday afternoon. Please can all Year 6 children have PE kits in school for PE on a Monday afternoon.
