Welcome back to the summer term. Where has that year gone? This is a busy term which starts with final preparations for the SATs which begin on May 13th. The children are well prepared for these tests and will take them in their stride. Please help by ensuring that they attend school every day in the lead up to these and have had a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast.
Routines and expectations will remain the same and we hope that the working behaviours of the pupils will also continue unchanged. Children will continue to have spellings to learn each week and have been given a list for the term. Some of these will be repeated from earlier in the year as we have now covered the entire curriculum. There is a link to this list below. We will also start to introduce some different words which follow the same spelling rule as those learnt.
Following SATs week, we will start auditions and rehearsals for our end of year production which will be Disney's Peter Pan. The children are really excited about this and we hope to put on a fantastic show. We hope that many of the children will choose to audition for main parts but, even if unsuccessful, all children will have an important part to play as this allows participation in a broader curriculum.
Summer Term is always a time of mixed emotions in year 6 but our aim is to support transition to secondary school with some fantastic memories from their final term at Bickleigh Down.
Below is a link to our thematic web showing what we will be learning this term.
Thank you for visiting the web site.
The school value which we focused on during the second half of the Spring Term was 'Love'. Here are the class charters which the children came up with after a time of quiet reflection. We had talked about the story of the Good Samaritan and were thinking about how we can show love to our neighbours during the daily life of our school.
