Year 6

We are committed to safeguarding; if you have any concerns about the well being of a child in school please contact a member of staff.

Dear Year 6,

We hope that you have got the email that we sent to Mr Elliot, but it sounds like everyone is having an amazing time. What a wonderful experience for you all. We can't wait to hear about everything at school on Monday. Enjoy your last day and continue to show every aspect of our RESPECT Code.

Miss Hicks, Mrs Myers and Mrs Meek. 

Welcome to our Year 6 Class Page

We hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas and we would like to say thank you for the lovely cards and gifts we received, we really appreciate your generosity and kindness. We are really looking forward to seeing you next week in 2023!

Spring Term 1 

We hope that you are all having a lovely Christmas and a great New Year. As always, the Spring term will be a busy one. 

PE days will be on a Tuesday and a Friday for the first half term. Ona Tuesday, we are really fortunate to be experiencing 'Forest School.' The children will be split into two groups and each group will access Forest School for three weeks of term, whilst the other children will be accessing an outdoor PE session. 
Spellings will continue to be on a Tuesday but we won't give any out during the first week of term. The next set of spellings will be sent home on Tuesday 10th January, ready for a test on the 17th January.  
Homework continues to need to be completed for a Friday. 


Interfaith Week

Our first week back in Interfaith Week where we will be recapping our learning of different religions we have covered in school. Our learning will then focus on Sikhism, which is a topic we have not yet covered in school.  

As part of the topic, the children will be creating a shoe-box size model of a Place of Worship.

Please can we ask for some shoe boxes and smaller boxes to be brought into school next week if you have any spare ones! Thank you. 

 

Parent open afternoon: We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Wednesday 1st February 2023 for our Parent open afternoon at 1.15 - 2.15pm

 

Welcome:

Welcome to Year 6, we hope you enjoy reading our class page.  To find out about our exciting curriculum, please see the tabs below 😁.

 

Your teaching team will be Miss Hicks, Mrs Myers, Mrs Meek and Mrs Questa. Miss Hicks will teach all day on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Myers will teach every Wednesday morning, alternate Wednesday afternoons and all day Thursday and Friday. As well as being in class every morning, Mrs Meek will also teach alternate Wednesday afternoons. 

In Year 6, we are becoming even more responsible and independent learners. We inspire and cultivate a mature approach to taking control of our own learning, becoming ready to face the risks and challenges in our futures, whilst embedding independence, resilience, teamwork and empathy.  

 

MOBILE PHONES:

Please note: if your child walks to school and therefore brings their mobile phone with them, they will need to hand them in to us, in the classroom at the start of the day; they will be stored securely in the school office.  Please remind children that for safeguarding reasons, phones must be turned off once they are on the school site.

 

Our PE days are now on a Tuesday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor).

  

 

Please ensure that you are wearing your PE uniform with suitable sports trainers, have long hair tied up and earrings either removed or covered with a plaster – before you come to school!

Homework expectations:

In preparation for the children being ‘High School Ready’ homework will be planned in the following way:

  • Weekly times tables test to be marked in class - this will be on a WEDNESDAY.
  • Children have received their 10-minute test revision guides which will form the basis of this homework.  They will have one for GPS (Grammar) and one for maths.  Please ensure that children have a go at all the activities in the 10-minute test and feel free to guide them, should they need some help.  PLEASE CAN YOU GO THROUGH THESE WITH YOUR CHILDREN AND MARK THEM - ANSWERS ARE IN THE BACK.  We will clarify any queries that the children may have ON A FRIDAY so children MUST bring them into school on a Friday morning (this will be monitored).  
  • Spellings – The children will have weekly spellings tests ON A TUESDAY based on spelling patterns and a list of statutory Y5/Y6 words. Following the test in class, words that the children will need to learn again will be recorded in their spelling books and we ask that you revise these with your child at home. 
  • Reading – Please use Go Read to record the reading you have been doing at home - THIS IS MONITORED IN SCHOOL. 
  • Homework diaries are an important tool for the children to become independent and high school ready.  They are also a great opportunity to write notes for us and vice versa.  Please ensure that they are  brought into school EVERY DAY BUT ARE SIGNED BEFORE FRIDAY.  Children will be writing their new homework, spellings, tables etc in there too so please ensure that they bring them in.  PLEASE ENSURE THAT THESE IN ON A FRIDAY AS WE WILL LOOK AT THESE FOR ANY PARENT QUERIES.
