Hambleton (Year 6)
Welcome to Hambleton Class - 'Hambleton Heroes'
We cannot quite believe we have already reached the Summer Term! It was wonderful to have you all back for the final 3 weeks of the Spring Term and you really started to show us just how resilient you are – we are hoping that you will return with the same fantastic attitude to your learning in your very last term at Ryhall CE Academy.
We are delighted that some of you have kept up with using Accelerated Reader during the holiday period and maybe we’ll be giving out more certificates when we return. Don't forget that you can now do quizzes online at home once a reading book is finished - it is important that these are done independently and we look forward to seeing your progress through the Summer Term.
The term ahead is varied and exciting, with plenty of great opportunities to enhance the curriculum. Our theme will be ‘Hola Mexico’ – more will be revealed as we begin our learning. We will also be exploring the theme of Hope during our Faith mornings; taking part in a road safety competition and begin to develop our maypole dancing skills in preparation for our virtual May Festival as well as starting to develop our thoughts, ideas and concerns about transition to secondary school.
By now, you're getting more used to the idea of Knowledge Organisers which are available for both our theme and for core subjects – hopefully you are finding these useful. These are always made available via Dojo for your reference - please look out for these at the start of the term. Parents, please do encourage your child to regularly review these at home - it is important that they all learn and understand this knowledge and have further opportunity to discuss it with you at home as will help them to be able to verbalise the knowledge they are learning in class and remotely.
We will continue to keep parents up to date with our learning developments and give out general messages and reminders out on Class Dojo on a daily basis, so do remember to turn on your notifications and continue to check in frequently. As we did at the end of Spring Term, we have now reverted to home learning to complement what we do in school (i.e. homework) - this will be available on SeeSaw - please do let us know if you have any connectivity issues with this and we will do our best to resolve any problems (We are sure that we're all a whizz on this by now!). It will help us enormously if you could continue to upload your child's independent work by any weekly deadlines (or as soon as complete would be even better).
In order to see what we're covering in Term 5 and 6, take a look at the Medium Term Theme Plan for Parents below.
We look forward to continuing working with you and your amazing Hambleton Heroes.
