Welcome to the Spring Term


 Beyond the Battle lines


We hope that you have had a restful and enjoyable break over Christmas and would like to welcome you back to the Spring term at Montgomerie! 


Once we have completed our start of term activities, we will be beginning our Spring term topic entitled 'Beyond the Battle lines ' where we will learn all about World War 2.  We will investigate the geographical scope of the war and discuss the effects of this; plan, design and make recipes associated with that period of time; learn about the style of a key artist from that period of time; and study the impact of the war on British society.  In Science, we will be completing a unit of work on Light and Electricity.  E-safety will remain at the heart of our computing lessons, however we will also be looking at coding and how we can use ICT to support our learning in other subjects.  We will be reading 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" by John Boyne in our Active Read sessions. In Maths, we will be continuing to apply our multiplication and division facts, alongside multiplying and dividing fractions and developing our understanding of the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages.  Regular practise of our times tables on TTRS and our Key Instant Recall Facts will also continue this term. Our R.E lessons will focus on how God is presented across religions and our PSHE lessons we will be looking at our dreams and goals and how to stay healthy.






  • Please ensure ALL items of uniform including coats, shoes, water bottles and lunch boxes are clearly named.  
  • Children must come to school wearing their P.E kit on their P.E days.  For Year 6, these will be on a Monday and Friday for the Spring Term.  Please remember, children need to have removed earrings prior to coming to school on these days and wear suitable PE kit for colder days, as we will be trying to go outside as much as possible.
  • Children are required to bring in their reading journal, reading book and Homework journal each day.   
  • Your child's lunchbox and water bottles must be wipeable.


Extended Learning Expectations

  • Reading and recording in journals - the minimum expectation for year 6 children is for 20 minutes, five times per week, with the aim of achieving their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum awards.  Children should be writing their own reading comments in journals as well as parents/carers.  
  • Spellings:  10 words weekly- need to be practised regularly in the Homework journal  
  • Any other homework will be given out every Friday or on SATs Companion.  Homework tasks must be completed by the following Wednesday.


If you need to speak to a teacher, appointments for a mutually convenient time can be made via the office.  Alternatively, email admin@montgomerieprimary.essex.sch.uk 


 We are very much looking forward to a great term!
