Year 6

Welcome to Autumn Term of Year 6! We do hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the exciting year ahead of us. The whole team, here in Year 6, are very much looking forward to helping your child excel and reach their full potential and welcome any communication from you. 

It will be marvelous to be "back to normal". We will be able to enjoy whole-school activities such as Worship and dining together. We will still observe strict hygiene rules though, with a focus on hand sanitation.

Our first term at a glance involves lots of learning in relation to ‘World War II’! We are also incorporating this theme within our reading journey – which will surround diving deeper into The Machine Gunners (Robert Westall) and The Missing (Michael Rosen). Children are more than welcome to bring in any books or resources from home based around the topic… but please make sure these are clearly named or labelled. 

Week to week a few things will be the same within our class. Here is a breakdown of the important things parents/carers need to know on a day to day basis:

  • Year 6 homework will be set on a Wednesday. This all needs to be completed and handed back in on the following Monday.
  • PE will take place on a Friday afternoon, please ensure your child(ren) come dressed in their PE uniform on this day.
  • Reading at home is a real passion of ours. We would love all of the children within Year 6 to read 5 times per week to an adult outside of school. You are able to document this in the children’s yellow reading records, whereby we will keep a close eye (Monday-Monday) and any children fulfilling this task will be rewarded with a point towards their reading awards.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us throughout the year. As always, we will be available on the playground every day after school, or you can email if needed. We are looking forward to another exciting school year and cannot wait to share this with all of the children!

PC Murphy has recently been in school and has been helping us to understanding how to stay safe online! PC Murphy has kindly shared with us her “Schoolbeat” leaflet on both “Online Relationships” and "Internet Safety", which we hope will recap the sessions taught so far. In addition to this, she has also provided us with an Instagram and other apps guide, detailing how to set privacy and safety settings.
