In our final term we hope to spend a week being adventurous and challenging ourselves at Laches wood; we will be building upon these skills of resilience, perseverance and tackling challenges head on as part of being in Year Six and moving on to Year 7.
Our Summer topic will be ‘Into the Wilderness!’ We will be learning about Cannock Chase and comparing it to the Brazilian rainforest.

How You Can Help
Developing your child’s independence and preparing him/her for SATs and the transition to high school will be important this year, so supporting with homework and your child’s personal organisation is essential. Also, look out for the homework projects that we will be setting during each topic to enhance your child’s creative skills!
Regular times table practice up to twelve will enable your child to have an essential basic skill required when calculating within maths. Allow your child to make jottings when tackling maths calculations to develop logical thinking and working systematically. Guide your children through their thinking and encourage them to work through any difficulties.
