Hello and welcome to Year 6!
My name is Miss Saunders and I will be teaching Year 6 this year, alongside our teaching assistant Miss Horrocks. Our PE days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays this term but please make sure that you bring your PE kit in everyday.
For Year 6's last half term at White Waltham (!) our topic will be "Walk the Plank". We have lots of exciting things planned such as our residential to Bude, a trip to Chessington and our end of year production Peter Pan. Alongside this, we will be doing lots of transition work with the children in order to get them prepared for secondary school.

This week, we are going to be finishing writing our persuasive writing on plastic pollution in the sea. We will then be writing our work into neat so that we can display it on our "The Write Stuff" display. We will also be rehearsing for our Peter Pan production and carry on making all of the props and costumes for the performance. On Wednesday and Thursday this week, Mr Mitchell will be doing science with the children.
Doodlemaths should now be up and running for all of the children. Each child knows their own login and password which they need to use in order to log into the app, which is free to download. The most effective way to use the app is to go onto it for 10 minutes each day in order to complete the "5-a-day" activities. I will also be assigning specific work that supports what we are learning in class which I am able to monitor. As a way of encouraging the children to use the app, we will be announcing the "top doodlers" from across the school every Friday in Collective Worship.
If you have any problems with the app or difficulties with accessing a tablet/phone for your child to complete it on, please let me know.

Why I Like this Book:
I love this books as it teaches me so much about Christ and how you could live a holy life every day. I discovered my likings to this book when I became a Junior Soldier at the Salvation Army and I received this book from my friends Eve and Andrew. This book is one of many books of this kind.
