Lions - Y6

A welcome from the Lions

A very warm welcome to the Lions' home page. Mrs.Broughton is the Lions' class teacher and she has the support of the teaching assistant, Mrs. Southwick. You will be able to see Mrs.Broughton out on the playground every morning from 8.40am if you have any questions or messages.

Our P.E. sessions this term will Wednesday afternoon. However, we will have P.E. at other times so it is essential that the children have P.E. kit in school from Monday through to Friday. P.E.kit for the autumn term should be shorts-black and a white Tee shirt until the weather turns cold and then the children will be allowed to wear jogging trousers and their hooded top. A change of shoes is essential for P.E. lessons. Trainers or sandshoes are fine for all P.E. lessons.

Reading is an important part of our school curriculum, so please make sure that your child's book bag and home reading book are in school every day. Please sign and date if you have heard your child read at home as we like to ensure all our pupils are reading regularly at home and changing books on a weekly basis. Children still working through the school reading scheme will be encouraged to read more frequently and are expected to change their books sveral times during the week. The home -school diary needs to be in school every Monday morning so I can add my support to their efforts so please remind your child to bring it. Every day is best.

Theme this term -Vikings versus Anglo Saxons

In Lions our theme this term is the relationship that developed between the Vikings and Anglo Saxons. This will involve looking initially at how the Anglo Saxons had settled in the country and why the Vikings invaded. We will be looking specifically at the very first attack the Vikings made and how they then spread out across the country. We will also be discovering the distances they travelled around the world in their search for wealth, resources and food.

This term will see the start of the SAT revision sessions in which we will cover many of the areas needed for the forthcoming SAT's in May. These sessions give the children the opportunity to develop further any areas of concern.
