Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."
We are now well into the year. Already, we have achieved so much and have demonstrated how reliable, mature and caring we can be.

Our focus for this half term is FORGIVENESS. We will be adding to our Values tab how we are exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.
Peter asked Jesus how often it is necessary to forgive, and Jesus replied, “Seventy-seven times”
Have a look at this story from the Bible about how Jesus forgave his best friend, even though he betrayed His trust.

Homework in Year 6
Homework will be set every week.
Children will be expected to complete their reading, weekly spellings and times tables activities.
This will support their progress throughout the year in literacy and numeracy.
In addition to this, children will have homework which is linked to our current Learning Challenge.
Children will be able to earn points for each activity they complete, working towards a target and earning a prize when their target is reached.
