Here we are at the last term of the year/ last term at Roundhill Primary School for the Year 6 children.
We have some fun things planned for the term including the trip to Cadbury's World as part of our Mayans enquiry - please keep the payments coming, as it would be a shame to have to cancel due to lack of funds
PE days remain the same (Tuesday and Thursday). It is expected every child will bring a PE kit to change into. Anyone without kit will be required to borrow a school one. Long hair should be tied back and all jewellery should be removed.
As we are still adhering to the government advice on keeping classrooms ventilated, please make sure your child has a jumper to wear in class (it can get chilly!).
Children will continue to wash/ sanitise their hands regularly throughout the day.
We advise each child brings a water bottle as the fountains are still turned off.

TERM 5 WEEK 3 SPELLINGS
We have been reading the book 'The Promise' which is about changing, growing and seeing the beauty in nature.
The children started by creating a dull, drab and desolate cityscape in line with the beginning of the book, then they gradually added the beauty of flowers and colour.

The children dissected a daffodil and found out what each part's purpose was in the reproduction of flowering plants.

Spellings / daily reading / times tables games.
Please continue with the homework set - the skills are really beginning to become embedded!
Speaking and Listening Skills - to increase confidence and, particularly, memory skills, please play:
'I WENT TO MARKET and I bought an apple...' This is where players take turns to say what they bought, then the next player says the same and adds something new. The game continues and you see how far you can go remembering all the things bought.
