Welcome to Chestnut Class!
Wow! What a busy term Year 6 have had. We have been learning a lot about World War Two - the reasons why it happened, which countries were involved, who were the main people and what life was like for evacuees.
Year 6 spent an afternoon with a Scientist and Engineer from The Institution of Engineering and Technology. They found out why brake lights and rear lights are red, what components are needed to make a safe torch. Lots of interesting questions were asked about his job and how he became a scientists/engineer.
The children have enjoyed reading Goodnight Mister Tom and have produced some amazing writing based on it. Remember to ask them about it and what life was like for the evacuees. You could even watch the film over the holidays and the children can tell you how it is different to the book.
Parents remember to support your children with their reading, spellings and times tables in preparation for SATS. We have completed two sets of mock SATs to get familiar with the style of questions and the children have all worked hard to improve their results. Our individual reward system has resulted in lots of raffle tickets being earned!
