Welcome back to the Year 6 pages.
We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and stayed safe and well during the holiday. Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome you all back into school this week with the new guidance from the Government that we need to stay at home.
This is also the page where you will find all of your home learning for this week. Next week, we hope that you will have all received your own e-mail and log in details to access 'Google Classroom'. This is where you will be able to access the home learning, submit your work and we will be able to comment and support you online.
We understand that this is a strange time once again. Being away from school, your teachers and your friends can be really difficult but we must all keep safe and where possible stay at home. We will be making telephone calls to you all over the next week to check in and see how things are going, please do speak to us! If you have any worries or questions, then please contact us via the school office and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
On this page you can keep up to date with our learning journey and find out what we have been doing and what we will be doing in the future. Please keep checking back to see our amazing work!
There is also a new Times Tables Rock Stars Battle of the Bands between Year 5 and 6 - let's show those Year 5s what we're made of!
This week was Kindness Week where we thought of ways to make others feel good about themselves. We read the book ‘Have You Filled Your Bucket Today’ by Carol McCloud. We investigated the idea of an invisible bucket to see how easy and rewarding it is to express kindness, appreciation and love by filling buckets. We each came up with a way that we could fill another person’s bucket and then also our own. We decided as classes that being positive can help everyone to have a better day .
It's that time of year again! Our Christmas cards have already made it to the printers and will be available to order soon!
We enjoyed our Big Bang day today which launched our whole school topic 'Come on and Celebrate'. We found out about the lives of some inspirational people from both history and more modern times (Mary Seacole, Ada Lovelace, Terry Fox and Junko Tabei.) It was a great chance for children to celebrate the achievements of others and get excited about our new topic through DT, Art, Geography and Computing.
See the new information folder for extra details about Year 6.
Hello Classes 13 and 14 and welcome to your web page.
It has been fantastic to see you all back into school. Thank you to all of our families for their support and understanding during this time, for preparing the children so well for the return and for accommodating the staggered start times.
On this page, you can keep up to date with our learning journey and news to find out what we have been up to and what we will be doing in the future.
PE lessons will begin on THURSDAY 10th SEPTEMBER for both Classes 13 and 14. The children will need to wear their PE kit (rain or shine) to school every Thursday during Term 1. Can we also remind you that long hair will need to be tied back and earrings removed.
Your child will be sent home with a book in which they will complete their weekly home learning task. Due to the current restrictions in place, we will unfortunately have to ask that the book remains at home for the time being. Each week a new sheet detailing the spellings and various tasks set by your child's teacher will be uploaded onto the website or, when possible, sent home. Please support your child in completing the activities in their homework book. If you wish to send a photograph or electronic version of your child' s home learning please do so via the school office.
Many thanks for your continued support and understanding.
Mrs Schlick and Mrs Page.
Reading Diaries and Reading Challenge
On Friday, the children took home a new reading diary. Please record in the reading diary each time your child reads. This can be either their reading book from school or a book/ magazine that they enjoy reading at home. The reading diaries need to be returned to school every Friday along with any finished school reading books please in order for us to quarantine and check reading frequency.
Our reading challenge is starting which means children need to be reading 4 times a week at home - please record this in the red diaries. If your child reads other material such as books at home or books online, especially over the weekend when school books are returned to school, please also record this in the diaries.
