A very warm welcome back to the children after their summer break. I am very much looking forward to our Autumn term together in Year 6, especially as school life is beginning to return a little closer to normal! The children have settled in brilliantly over the last couple of days – they have all shown that they are ready to learn and have been full of enthusiasm. Remember to visit our class page regularly to see what we have been learning, or log-on to Twitter @StStephens_Bury

For full details of class and whole school worship, home learning, PE and class routines please take a look at my 'Meet the Teacher' presentation. You can also view our Autumn Newsletter

here.

Mrs Cocker 

In the next few days our new leagues will be set up for this year's Times Tables Rockstars! In the meantime, you can get practising using the password you received last year!

Each term we would like the children to be able confidently answer what we call the 'Key Instant Recall Facts'. This term, I would like the children to work on being able to iknow the multiplication AND division facts for all times tables up to 12 x 12. See Autumn term 1 on the attached document. Key Instant Recall Facts

A Child's War

Our topic this term is ‘A Child’s War’ – we will be taking an in depth look into the events of the Second World War…

A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover. It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, we will learn why nations were fighting and why child evacuees had to make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. We will find out all about ‘Make do and mend’, rationing and the effects of war on our home nation. We will delve deep into this bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships…

In addition to weekly homework the children will be given a home learning menu with exciting and creative optional tasks they can complete at home with a WW2 theme.  You can access this here Home Learning Menu

This term we will be reading ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’, by historical fiction writer, Emma Carroll. The book is an evocative wartime drama set in February 1941 featuring Olive and her brother Cliff who have been evacuated to the Devon coast. At first they feel unwelcome but once they move into the Lighthouse with the Keeper, Mr Ephraim, an exciting adventure begins as Olive tries to solve a coded letter left by her missing elder sister, Sukie.
