Welcome to the Autumn Term

14th September 2020


Y4/5/6 Autumn Term Newsletter



Dear parents and carers,


It was lovely to welcome everyone back last week and see so many smiling faces. The children have settled in nicely and have been so quick to adapt to their new routine. It was great to hear how happy the children were feeling being back at school and seeing their friends.


This term our topic is ‘The Mayans.’ During this topic, we will be looking at who the Mayans were, where they lived using mapping skills and how they developed over time. In English we will be looking at different text types and how that text type leads to engaging the reader. In maths we will be continuing to build on our number skills and applying these across the curriculum, with a particular focus on times tables.

PE lessons this term will continue to take place twice a week so please ensure your child has their PE kit at school. Like before, your child will change into their PE kits at school however they will also come home wearing their PE kits and bring their school uniform home with them too.

Reading remains a high priority in our class so please continue to read with your child at home and sign their reading record. At Sigglesthorne we aim for children to read at least 4 times at home per week.

Your child will also continue to be sent spellings home each week for their weekly spelling test which takes place every Thursday. Please continue to support your child with practising their spellings at home.

Please also ensure that your child brings a water bottle with them to school every day. Due to toast being unavailable at the moment, the children are welcome to bring in their own healthy snack to eat at break time.


Thank you for your continued support throughout these unprecedented times and I look forward to the term ahead!

Kind regards,

Mrs Prosser


In these unprecedented times we have not uploaded a Curriculum Newsletter for this term.  In the meantime, here is an example of what we learned in the previous academic year:-  Y4/5/6 – Romans curriculum letter
