Welcome to Year 6
Our theme for the Summer term is:
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
We will be looking at four different time periods to give the children a clearer understanding of chronology. In each time period we will find out about what sorts of things were considered crimes and how those who committed crimes were punished. As part of the Topic, we will be sending a team to the Cheltenham Primary Schools' Mock Trial Competition.

SATs Meeting for Parents
Mr Searle will hold an information meeting for parents about the forthcoming Year 6 SATs on Monday 24th April at 3:30pm. This meeting will last approximately half an hour.
Year 6 will be spending a week at the foot of the Black Mountains, not far from Hay on Wye. We leave at 2pm on Monday 3rd April and will return at 3pm on Friday 7th April.
Mr Searle will be holding a meeting on Tuesday 14th March with all the information parents will need about the trip.
Jonathan's Jungle Visit
Friday 16th September.
Jonathan's visit was a brilliant way to start off our theme work this term. He brought a whole array of creatures for us to learn about - many of which would be found in South America.
We have booked a week away in the Black Mountains for the Year 6 children at the end of the Spring term. They will enjoy all sorts of outdoor adventurous activities, for example climbing, abseiling, kayaking, rifle shooting, raft building and archery. Mr Searle will soon be leading a meeting for parents who wish to know a bit more about the trip on Thursday 6th October straight after school in the Year 6 classroom.
