Have a great half term everyone!

Next week (during half term), we would like you to learn the following spellings:

bargain, bruise, category, cemetery, committee, communicate, community, competition, conscience, conscious, controversy, convenience, correspond.

If you don’t know what the words mean, look them up online or in a dictionary. Try breaking them up into sections or sounding them out phonetically in order to remember them.

Your homework books also include your maths homework and some handwriting practise.

Remember to read every day and to practise your times tables – especially if you are stuck on Bronze, Silver or Gold!

See you next week!


Y6 Pupils have been Learning how to be Safe and Considerate Citizens of London

The children have learned through role-play and drama, to highlight the plight of these people and clarify their points of view, in order to write succinct and persuasive arguments.

Miss Alcock is really impressed by the fantastic work that has been produced.
