We hope you've had an amazing holiday! It's your last half-term at St. Matthew's EVER but there's no need to reach for the tissues just yet as we have some action packed weeks ahead of us!
It's our class Assembly on Wednesday morning at 9.15 - a chance for you to come along and find out what we got up to at 'Manor Adventure'! Later the same day, those lovely people from 'Slime Science' are coming to visit us - can't wait!
On Friday it's Sports Day (weather permitting) so please make sure you have your kit in school on that day!
Next week, there are two transition days at Bridgewater High School (for those of you who are going) and on Friday, it's Farther's Day afternoon and assembly.

See you bright and early tomorrow morning - Monday 8th June !
Welcome back to school for the Summer Term...
The Dinosaurs are coming!
Summer Term 1
Welcome back to your last term ever at Primary School! It's a term which we know you're really going to enjoy - especially once we have got the SATs tests out of the way! For the first few weeks, we will be revising hard but we have still managed to include some exciting events such as the theatre group on Tuesday 21st April, who will be performing 'The Legend of King Arthur' and then the following week, we have the Dinosaur Dome visiting us ... 'Jurassic Park'! We don't know weather it's too early to mention the word 'production' but of course that time of year is almost upon us and we think we've found the perfect play script for you to show us your Oscar winning performances!
The Curriculum Newsletter for this half term is now available to download.

Monday 5th January 2015
Spring Term 1 2015
Mrs Karatas, Mrs Darnton and Mrs Hulse would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year. 2015 is certainly going to be a very busy year for us all! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break and would like to say thank you for your lovely Christmas gifts and kind wishes, which are very much appreciated.
As always, there is plenty to look forward to this term, including our residential to Manor Adventure!
On Thursday we visited The Brindley Theatre in Runcorn to watch 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' which was, I quote "Incredible" and on Friday we had another entertaining treat during our 'Start of Term Service' in church with Rev. Alan.
Our Curriculum Newsletter is now available at the bottom of this page, providing information about key English, Maths and Science objectives for this half term in addition to new topics that we will be starting. The new Year 6 Home Learning project; due in by Wednesday 11th February 2015 is also at the bottom of the page to download. The quality of the work from the last 2 projects has been absolutely outstanding and we would like to thank you for supporting your children.
Monday 3rd November 2014
We all hope you've had a brilliant half-term break and have recharged your batteries ready for the next action-packed few weeks! This Thursday we will be taking part in a drama workshop at Boteler High School learning all about Romeo and Juliet and next week we will be preparing for our Remembrance Service in church. New topics this term include the extremely gross but fascinating Science unit on Microorganisms and in English we will be writing stories, writing persuasively and reading and writing poetry. For a more detailed overview of the curriculum, click on the newsletter below!
We have also sent home your 'Home Learning Project' which is a selection of exciting activities related to William Shakespeare - Please choose ONE of the activities and complete by 5th December. ENJOY!
We have all been very busy transforming the classroom and it looks 'absolutely fabulous' as I'm sure you'll agree. Mrs Darnton and Mrs Hulse have really worked their magic! Look at the gallery pictures below!
Autumn Term 2014
Welcome Back! We both hope that you've all had a relaxing break and that you are ready for the exciting new term, which lies ahead!
It's only our first week back and yet there's so much to do! The school will be voting for the much coveted positions of 'House Captain'. We have read your House Captain speeches and must say that they are very persuasive! It will be interesting to see who gets voted in! In addition to House Captains, we will be choosing Eco Council and School Council representatives and Junior Road Safety Officers. As you can see, Year 6 is a year where we are encouraging you all to become true role models for all children at St. Matthew's and we know that you're going to step up to the challenge!
Homework and spellings will start next week and this year there will be regular grammar homework as well as the usual English and Maths tasks. Spelling lists will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday.
The new Home Learning Task Sheet will be given out on Monday too and is linked to your current Science Topic - Life Cycles. The hand-in date for this half-term's home learning will be Monday 13th October.
Our new History topic is The Victorians. We will be finding out about the very different lives of the Rich and the Poor, trying out our Victorian decoupage skills, reading biographies about Queen Victoria and following in the footsteps of the philanthropic Lord Leverhulme by designing our own worker's village!
We hope we've whetted your appetite sufficiently - check back here for further up-dates and resources!
