Happy New Year! We hope that you all had a restful break and are looking forward to the term ahead. We are very much enjoying working with our Year 6 pupils and feel sure that they will continue to impress in 2020.
Year 6 curriculum
We greatly appreciate your support with the Friday cake sales which help to enrich our class resources. The cake sales for this term are currently planned as follows:
14th February 6C
28th February 6L & 6M (joint cake sale)
6th March 6B
Reading books and reading records should be brought to school every day. In the meantime, we hope that your child will maintain a regular reading habit at home and complete at least two in-depth entries per week. This has been discussed already during lessons.
The ‘Good Times’ Tables Challenge will take place every week. Literacy homework will be given out on a Wednesday, due in the following Monday. Maths homework will be given out on a Friday, due in the following Tuesday.
Class assemblies are planned as follows:
7th February 6L
28th February 6B
Trips and Activities
On Friday 14th February, all Year 6 children take part in the annual Junior Citizen scheme.
Here, they will experience a series of scenarios based on real-life situations with input from a range of organisations including the emergency services. We will require parent supervision with this trip. If you would like to help on this trip please speak to the office staff.
On Wednesday 5th February, the Rainbow Theatre presents a World War Two workshop at Latchmere. Pupils gain a true feel of what it was like to be a child living through the war. On this day, we invite the children to come to school dressed as evacuees!
Monday 10th to Friday 14th February is Latchmere Goes Global Week. During this week, the children will be learning all about the geography, history, culture and arts of a particular country. Parents are invited for an ‘Open House’ on Thursday 13th February from 3 pm to see the work children have completed.
We look forward to Owen Walter, one of our highly respected Old Latchmerians, coming to visit Year 6, in April, to talk about his experiences during World War Two.
We highly recommend family visits to the Imperial War Museum or the Churchill War Room. This provides them with further valuable insight into our exciting History topic.
We wish all of you and your children well during this final year at Latchmere.
