Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school. As PE will be taking place outside, children will need an outdoor kit and trainers.
Spellings, SPaG and Maths will be given out every Friday and will need to be completed and brought back into school by the following Friday.
Children also need to be reading on a daily basis.
Children will be reminded to take these home daily and to be brought back in the next day with fresh water. Replacement water bottles are £2 to buy and/or 50p for lids.
You may bring a healthy snack into school for break time, if you are not having toast.
You can recycle your batteries here!!
At St Thomas' we we value the importance of recycling and if you have any batteries that you no longer use, please bring them into school in a clear plastic bag and they will be sent to the office to add to our recycled battery collection.
Extreme reading challenge
Well done to all the Year 6's who took part in the 'Extreme Reading Challenge'. It was lovely to see all the pictures of you reading and demonstrating just how fun reading can be! Keep your eyes peeled for a new Reading Challenge coming soon!
What a fantastic, first full week back! I am so proud of how well Year 6 have settled back into school and they have shown me what a hard working and mature class they are - well done everyone!
We have had a busy week completing some baseline tests and getting back into our daily routines. We have started reading 'The Nowhere Emporium' as part of our English Topic and the children have created some AMAZING expanded noun phrases based around an image of the Emporium. In Maths, we been focusing on place value and children have been identifying the value of each digit in very large numbers!
In the afternoons, children have been introduced to their new topic 'Survival' and in Science, we have looked at how different animals adapt to their environments. They have used maps and labelled the different countries in Europe (including some capital cities!) We have also had a think about what types of animals may live in these countries and why. In Art, we have started to create a 'mood board' based on an animal of their choice. I am looking forward to seeing them when they are finished!
Well done again Year 6. I am looking forward to seeing you all again next week for another FAB week of learning!
