Spring 2024

Welcome back to school!

We hope you all enjoyed a fantastic Christmas and hope that 2024 is a great year for you and your families! Many thanks for all your support during the last term, the children worked really hard and did work to be proud of.

So, what’s new this term? Stanley Head of course!  You will shortly be receiving the final consent and medical form. Please ensure that all money and forms are returned by the dates we have specified. A suggested kit list has also been sent to you, suffice to say that the children should be equipped with suitable winter outdoor clothing! We will have a FANTASTIC time but expect them to get wet and very dirty during the week so old clothes are definitely the best ones to pack!

This term we turn to preparation for SATS. It is really important that the children complete their homework to the best of their ability and return them on the day specified.  They can have a little longer than the time specified if they need it but we would suggest that this is no more than 1 hour per paper. On Mondays (English) and Fridays (Maths) we will mark the papers with the children addressing any questions thoroughly that may have found difficult. The children will bring these marked papers home for revision. 

Here is a taster of just some of the things we will be learning:

Autumn 2023

Welcome back to school!

After a refreshing break over the summer, it’s so nice to welcome you all to the start of a new school year at St George and St Martin Catholic Academy and to Year 6! We are so looking forward to teaching your children in their last year at our school!  We have a busy year ahead and the children have made an enthusiastic start especially in their new role as leaders of our school.

It is already clear that the children are eager to sink their teeth into all of their new learning. We will be teaching a variety of different subjects in Year 6 and the children will enjoy a full and rich curriculum that covers all the subjects in the National Curriculum. We have begun reading our first novel, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’, by our class author Michael Morpurgo. The children will love reading this, and it will help develop both the children’s reading and writing skills.

Here is a taster of just some of the things we will be learning:

Literacy

  • Classic poetry
  • Fiction texts
  • Story writing
  • Autobiographies

Maths

  • Immediate recall of times tables and related division facts
  • Mental and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Fractions
  • Place value and rounding
  • Units of measurement
