Dear Parents and Children,
THANK YOU all so much for the fantastic gifts you sent in before Christmas; all of the teachers in out team were overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness you continue to show us. We wish you all a peaceful, happy and healthy 2016!
It's time to get back to work and by clicking the red flower above you can enter the Spring term pages. As always there are homework activities, revision activities and class activities to give you a chance to do some pre learning or to recap classroom work alongside photos and videos of the things we get up to during our school day.
Please feel free to drop me an email should you have any questions or need any clarification: firstname.lastname@example.org
or place a call to the office and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Weekly homework will continue to be on the school newsletter as well as being recorded in your child's day book. Overnight homework is important and should only take a short time but it will be necessary for the next lesson.
Thanks for those who supported their child with the Michael Morpugo challenge; the next reading challenge is: 'five books written by the same author', to be signed by an adult please and in for the last Friday before Easter, thank you.
Once again, thank you for your ongoing support.
Michelle Vogtlander, and the Y6 team.
What a wonderful start to year 6, thank you children!
Dear Year 6,
Welcome back to school; we all hope you’ve had a fantastic summer, that you’re rested and ready for another brilliant year at Cooper Perry.
Year 6 classroom and teachers are waiting for you; we are excited to be working with you this year in what will be your final year at Cooper Perry.
We’ve got a lot to do: projects to explore like, The Shang Dynasty of China: an era of time where tremendous inventions were created; also we’ll explore geographical features of our world both social and physical. Then in science we’ll look more deeply at electrical circuits - problem solving as we go; we’ll also look at the eye and how we see. Our science will be a mixture of experimentation and knowledge learning. In PE we will continue to develop invasion games, dance and gymnastics. MFL will be French and in music we will continue to develop our skills for reading, writing and performing. In art we will investigate Chinese calligraphy and fish, developing collage and printing.
During Literacy we will take a look at classical literature by reading parts of The Jungle book and then we will move on to link our literacy with our topic of China. In numeracy we will look at new concepts as well as revisit previous learning. We will spend time problem solving to make sure we can apply our knowledge to real situations and aim to show mastery of all skills across the curriculum
We will use a new type of language when talking about your achievements and assessments; the Government have shown us what to do and say and now we will share this in depth with you on a daily basis and soon invite your families into school to discuss this with us so that we all understand fully.
So as you can see we have a busy but exciting term ahead. Please make sure your PE kit is in school every day, we are hoping for all PE to take place outside this half term so remember to bring in: shorts, t-shirt, tracksuits/joggers, sweat shirts and TRAINERS not pumps. Water bottles are essential every day too as well as being organised with: diary, reading books, pencil cases and a nutritious snack – you’ll be hungry! We will all be expecting a lot from one another so let’s be organised and ready for the next step.
The Year 6 team. J
