Dear Parents/Carers and Children,
We wanted to finish the year with a huge THANK YOU, it has been a difficult couple of years but none of us could have done it without all of your support and commitment to Little Bowden.
We have had a fantastic year and speak for all teachers when we say we have really enjoyed teaching and making memories with all of your little ones over the years. It is all of the children that make Little Bowden such a super school. We are sad to see them go but wish them the very best of luck for the new adventures ahead of them, they will all be fabulous.
We hope you all have a well deserved and restful summer break.
Thank you again,
The Year 6 Team
We have had a great half term, the children have been amazing and settled back into school routines well. We are all very proud.
This term children have revised some important Maths topics to consolidate their learning, we have also covered two new topics Algebra and Ratio. Next term we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages again to consolidate learning and fill any gaps, we will also look at geometry in particular angles.
English this term we have focused on consolidating basics again and completed a couple of independent writes to assess progress. More recently we have completed a unit on Harry Potter, teaching dialogue and narrative writing. The children have greatly enjoyed this unit and produced some excellent work. We will continue to to work on narrative writing next term and also a non-fiction piece of writing.
Our topic focus has been varied, beginning with Royal Family, we have then moved onto Buddhism as part of our RE curriculum and more recently begun looking at the circulatory system. Next week the children will participate in some science lessons. Next term we hope to start with a unit on electricity.
Next week we have an arts week and the children will be creating some beautiful work developing their weaving skills.
Lastly, PE days have changed again, PE will now be on a Tuesday morning and Friday morning. Please ensure your child comes dressed appropriately on those days.
Have a great weekend,
Miss Pearson, Mrs Brown and Mr Smithies
