Year 6

Welcome back. I hope you have had a good holiday and are now ready for the final half term at Swillington Primary School! Although SATs are over, there is still a lot to learn and enjoy together before you go to different high schools.

We will continue with our Egyptian topic this half term which will include our visit to Bagshaw museum. The children will also be exploring how to stay healthy during ‘healthy eating week’ through exercise, healthy cooking and learning how our bodies work and how to keep them healthy.

In literacy, we will be writing instruction texts, autobiographies and biographies to reflect on our time at Swillington Primary School and also linked

In Maths we will be:

  • Shape, space and measure
  • Statistics

Headlice

To keep headlice under control, remember… once a week, take a peek!

It is really important to check for lice weekly, even if you do not think your child has them. If you do find headlice, please treat immediately and notify a member of staff so that other parents can be made aware. If your child has long hair, tying it up might reduce their chances of catching them.
