Term 3

Happy New Year!


We cannot believe we are in 2022 and are very excited about our topic this term – The Great Plague. Rats! Fleas! Plague masks! We will be exploring all elements of the plague that devastated the UK in 1665.


This term our PE days remain the same - Monday and Thursday. Please come to school in your PE kit (black trousers/shorts, trainers, plain white t-shirt and your year 6 blue jumper).




Remember, we are not at the disco (however much we want to be). Please only wear a watch and studs. All other jewellery/hair accessories should be left at home.


This term on a Thursday morning, Mrs H and Dr Fletcher will continue to be covering PPA, teaching Science, Spanish, Spellings and Art.

On a Thursday afternoon, Corey will be covering Miss Cameron during her phase leadership time.
