Production rehearsals are well underway in Year 6 and the children are working hard to put on a brilliant performance for you. The countdown is on - two weeks to go!!
Below are the tracks for the songs that the children need to learn. The songs are not in any particular order but children should spend time listening and learning the words. They are aware of where withing the songs they are singing.
Tracks will go up next week that have no vocals so children can practise singing with backing tracks only.
This week, a letter will come home with information for costumes so you can start organising the bits and pieces your child will need. The letter will also include information about dates and times etc to confirm. for you all.
The shows will start at 6:45pm (see the calendar for dates).
Any questions regarding the production please speak to Miss O'Dwyer.
Year 6 will begin their RSE lessons on Monday 3rd July and conclude on Wednesday 5th July. There will be a letter under the letters section on Tuesday 13th June - please do read for more information.

French trip information
If your child has a school meal, please ensure your account is in credit at all times.
If your account is in arrears, Harrison's will no longer provide a meal, and your child will be asked to provide a packed lunch.
Year 6 will no longer be asking children to complete homework.
Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:
Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.
There is no specific homework for Spelling and Grammar - continue to look over the spelling lists for Year 3 - Year 6 to ensure your super confident with these ready for secondary school!
There is no specific Maths and Multiplication Tables homework - there is a super amount of exciting preparation needed for Dr Dolittle and Science Fair to be getting started with.
There is no creative home learning Summer 2. The Science Fair offers a fantastic out of school opportunity to be creative, collaborative and self-led.
Should children wish to create anything linked to our topics and bring them into school, we would welcome them warmly.
Learning this week
The next few weeks will be a focus on creating our own Newspaper article. We have watched a short film titled - Pigeon Impossible! This is the basis for the article and uses all of the skills of non-fiction writing we have developed during Year 6. Pupils will be shortly creating a first draft and continuing to learn and edit throughout the learning journey of the next few weeks.
Maths lessons this week have had a heavy focus on channelling the maths skills we have learned through the year into investigations. We have been busy working on Mathematical Murder Mysteries - a hexagonal whodunnit! These have needed a range of different skills that are from a variety of maths topics including number operations, fractions and geometry.
Year 6 had the task of imagining, marketing and producing a fruit salad for Tesco. The task was The Apprentice comes to Fielding as pupils were working in groups in competition with each other. There was a strict design brief that had to be followed, including the dimensions and packaging for the salad. Pupils had to decide what type of salad they were going to create and how to present it on the plate to ensure the most amount of customers. Here are some pictures from The Apprentice in 6H!
Next week sees a continuation of improving grammar and writing skills during the week. Pupils will be learning and exploring the gaps in their learning, highlighted through their first draft. Lessons will be fluid and allow opportunity for pupils to decide what they need working on and where independent activity is necessary. This will be through a recap of the grammar lessons learnt and reflection on the work produced so far.
We will be revising and exploring number skills this week, with a focus on concreting mathematical strategies and confidence with all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Children will be looking at both arithmetic and word questions and securing their understanding of how to pick apart the question and be confident in what series of operations are necessary. Fun!
