Westmere Primary School

Portugal

Welcome to Portugal Class

Teachers: Mr Davies & Mrs Timmins

TA: Mrs Bailey

Welcome to Year 6 and your final year at Sutton Bridge Westmere. Year 6 is fun-filled and packed with many amazing memories for you to take away, as you progress onto Secondary school.

Mr Davies teaches Portugal in the mornings and Mrs Timmins in the afternoon. Portugal is very fortunate as we also have Mrs Bailey as our teaching assistant.

Homework will be set on Fridays and is due in on the following Tuesday. Homework will involve a piece of Maths, a piece of English and spellings. At the beginning of each term, a topic-based homework project is set, which allows you to get creative at home with your child! If your child is struggling with their homework, we are available to support them: they just need to ask. Please also ensure your child reads at home, daily, as this is vital to them developing their comprehension of text, widening their vocabulary, and furthering their ability to write well.

Children in Portugal class have PE on a Monday and Friday. On PE days, please ensure children with long hair should have their hair tied up, and any watches or jewellery need to be removed.

Our Summer term Topic is Pharaohs.

Let’s travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entertaining a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings.

Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and it’s fascinating culture.

Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and age-old artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods! Make yourself a nemes and you’ll really look the part!

Become an apprentice and work for Ramose – he’s the chief embalming of the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife.

Now open the doorway into ancient Egypt – who knows what treasures you will find?
