Welcome to Year 6!
It's the final half term - Summer is here!
We hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing break and are ready to return for your final half term with us at Barnton Community Nursery and Primary School! We can't believe just how quickly this year has flown by!
For this final, yet jam-packed half term, we shall be learning about lots of exciting things.
English and Maths: We will continue to consolidate all learning, in preparation for High School; Our writing will be inspired by our text The Ghost Ship!
Science: Our topic is "Evolution and Inheritance". We will use our maths statistics topic to support our learning.
Computing: We will be focusing on keeping ourselves safe when on the internet and online media through e-safety. We will start our coding unit.
RE: We will continue to learn about Judaism and Christianity.
Music: We will be incorporating Aladdin songs into our music sessions.
P.E.: Two P.E. sessions take place throughout the week in Year Six. P.E. lessons usually take place on a Monday afternoon and a Thursday afternoon. However, due to occasional timetable changes, these lessons may alter. Therefore, please ensure that your child brings their P.E. kit with them on Monday morning and they will take them home on Friday afternoon.
SRE: We will continue to learn about feelings, friendships, relationships and personal hygiene and puberty.

As you can see, this term we have so much to look forward - an exciting curriculum; transition to High School; drama; music; Leavers' assembly; sunshine!...The list is endless! In particular, we cannot wait for our end of year performance of Aladdin. Dates of our super-exciting performance will be sent out in due course.
We were lucky enough to watch Disney's Aladdin in London's West End last term - persuading us that this MUST be our end of year production! Featuring all the songs from the Academy Award-winning classic film, we hope that our version of the show is everything you could wish for and more. Exciting times!
Keep your eyes peeled both on here and on our class Twitter pages for pictures and updates on how the children are getting on in class!
ANY QUESTIONS? Please feel free to ask if you have any questions through the year. We are available after school or phone the school office and we will return your call. You can also use your child’s diary to send a message.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Boyd, Mrs Morris and Mrs Thompson.
