Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 6!

The following is a brief outline of the area of study your child will be covering this term. As Year 6 this is clearly an important time as they prepare for the SATs and their transition to secondary school in September. We shall endeavor to make this time as productive, interesting and fun as we can!  SATs week is the second week in May and it is important that your child is present at this time if at all possible. If there is anything that you feel you need more information or help with please e-mail me or call into school.
