Welcome to Minotaur Class
Finally, Year 6 has begun and the children have already thrown themselves wholeheartedly into our School of Rock (Musicals) themed topic. It will be a busy term, but I am delighted to say that everyone has made a fantastic start to life in Year 6.
Our Dress-Up Day topic launch saw many different costumes and colourful hair which mixed with the children’s enthusiasm as they were introduced to our Rock Bands Project. Already there are wonderful band names and logos showing how creative your children are. In addition to the project, we will be learning about the history of music, modern ‘pop’ phenomena and the status of celebrity. I am sure we will have some lively debates as strong views and opinions are discussed.
PE will be on Tuesday afternoons so please ensure your children have their full PE kit in school as well as trainers every day for the Mile Run. They will also continue with trumpet lessons on a Tuesday afternoon. This term we will also be going swimming on Thursday afternoons developing different strokes and learning water safety skills.
The 48 spellings for this term are also listed below. Please encourage your children to work on these over the duration of the term. 10 weekly spellings will also be given to every child each week on a Monday and they will be tested on these on the Friday of the same week
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me via the link above and I will respond within 48 hours. I am available at the beginning and the end of the day for quick queries, however, it may be advisable to arrange an appointment for anything more in-depth.
I look forward to meeting you all.
