Welcome to Wheal Dream and Y6.

Our theme from this week is from Hevva to Hepworth - a look at the local history of St Ives, and the way that the town has developed as outside factors have changed. We started the theme with a bang as Kernow King brought his Cornish Caretakers show to give us a rapid run through exciting Cornish characters. Feast Day on 4th Feb gave us our traditional opportunity to join in with an important part of the town's heritage. If anyone has any interesting artefacts or stories to share with us please send them in or book a time to come and show us!

In maths we will continue to work through our revision programme. Please keep on learning times tables at home, as they really are the key to speedy maths calculations.  

Please see our overview below to find out what else we will be learning this half term.

Homework from now will be our revision books - children will be bringing them home at the start of this half term with a schedule of pages and dates when they will be checked in school. Please encourage your child to complete the books independently - if they cannot complete a task it just means we need to focus on it in lesson time a little bit more. They will also bring home a study guide for maths and grammar - please remind them to use them as the explanations are all in there!
