First, I would like to say what a pleasure it has been teaching year six for our first term!

As the new term commences we will begin our new topic; WWII.

We will be continuing to think about how to stay safe on the Internet and use various computing programmes to enhance our learning and develop new skills.


We will of course continue all of the hard work that we have done throughout our time at ACE Primary school in Maths and English, preparing for secondary school and the SATS tests, which take place in May. Please continue to help with the learning of times tables as well as their related division facts and in encouraging the children to read at least 5 times a week. Let us try to maintain the lead for the most children in the raffle each week.


In Year 6 the children are expected to help other children in the school, and we have already chosen our monitors and play-leaders who will be readily available at playtimes and lunchtimes.


Our internet maths programme ‘MyMaths’ seems to be very popular with you all so keep going. You can also access MyMaths through the app, 'Puffin Academy'. Any problems with logging in please let us know. Bug Club has also been updated and new books been allocated.

Children will be given Maths and SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Homework each week. This will be set on Thursday and needs to be returned on Tuesday. Spellings will be tested on either Thursday prior to the new spelling rule being sent home. Children who struggle to get homework done will have the opportunity to complete it at lunch or join homework club!

The children have already shown me some incredible learning and I really look forward to the rest of the year. If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to come in and see me.


Thank you for your support.
