Year 6 - Diamond

Summer Term 1- The Kingdom of Benin

Welcome to the Summer Term! 


This term the children will continue to make new discoveries, learning about the ancient Kingdom of Benin in West Africa as well as exploring how light works in science and creating their own designs in D.T. based on Islamic art.


SATs week begins on the week commencing the 8th May (with the bank holiday on the Monday). We will be making final preparations for these during our English and maths sessions as well as in SATs Club on Tuesdays after school. We don't want the children to be anxious about taking the tests, although we understand that some nerves are perfectly normal. If your child is particularly worried then please do come and catch me before or after school so that we can help to reassure them.


Please see the termly documents for more details of the learning that will take place this term.

If you were unable to attend our SATs information evening, please take a look through the PDF version above of the presentation that was shown at the meeting. This will give you the key information, including test dates. I have also included some practice papers for you to print off and take a look at with your child if you wish to do so. 


We will be doing our very best to familiarise the children with the tests so that they know what to expect when the time comes.
