Mrs Mcclure would like to welcome you to the Puffins Class.
Welcome back to the Summer Term which, for the Year 6, will see their time at primary school end
and the new challenge of high school begin but let’s not wish the term away as we have so much to
First of all I would like to say a massive well done to all of the Year 6s who showed nerves of steel,
tons of compassion and endless energy and resilience on our recent trip to Derbyshire! Their
behaviour was impeccable and both Mrs Goddard and myself were very impressed with how they
looked out for each other making the whole trip a real team effort. It was a great week and thanks
again for the amazing presents! The Year 5s were all equally busy and Mrs Brown had a great week
designing their zoos and researching – they look brilliant!
It won’t have escaped your notice that it is only 3 weeks until the SATs are upon us. The children have worked so hard this year and, I think, are more than ready to show everyone how brilliant they are. Morning groups will continue up until SATs week.
For our Maths lessons this half term it will be mostly revision and re-capping, moving on to investigations after half term.
The Year 6 children were quite overwhelmed by the differing landscape in Derbyshire and the different farming methods so we would like to use our trip away to inspire our writing.
We had a rather yummy trip to a farm which makes it’s own ice-cream so we will be creating our own flavours too! The year 5s will continue to work on their zoo and animals topic with Mrs Brown.
Our topic work continues with the discovery of the Ancient Mayans. So far we have looked at the
hierarchy system and locations. We will continue to work through our ‘What we want to know’ list
that the children created last term.
Lifecycles continues to be our unit for this half term moving onto Animals, including humans which
will include Sex and Relationships Education so look out for a separate letter detailing this.
Please make sure that PE kits are in on Mondays and remain in school for the week.
And then of course there’s the play but that’s a secret for now…………
Thank you for your continuing support and, as always, you can always contact me by email if
