Hello everyone and welcome to Year 6.
After a few weeks together, we have been really impressed with how Year 6 have returned to school, especially after such a lengthy period of time away (for most pupils). Their effort, enthusiasm and commitment to their learning so far has been excellent and we were really impressed with all those that produced videos regarding the House Captain roles.
We have already had one of our WOW experiences in this brief period of time. ‘Bikeability’ was great to be involved in as it gave the children an opportunity to develop their cycling skills, including their on-road ability. The children were full of enthusiasm and thoroughly enjoyed their time on two wheels!
We're really looking forward to our upcoming visits to Shugborough. Although we have had to adapt the week due to current guidelines, we are confident, having liaised closely with the centre, the children will have a great experience.

Please encourage your child to read as much as possible outside of school. It would be useful for all children to read a range of genres and authors over the course of the year as this will develop their knowledge and understanding substantially. Additionally, their comprehension of a text can be tested via our Accelerated Reader programme used in school.
All children also have an individual login for TT Rockstars. It is imperative in Year 6 that children have a secure and quick recall of their times tables as it underpins many mathematical concepts. TT Rockstars can be accessed via the app, which is free to download or via their website: https://www.ttrockstars.com/ If your child has any issues regarding logins or passwords, please contact Mrs Turton.
As you will be aware, your child will be taking their End of Key Stage 2 tests towards the end of Year 6. These tests are scheduled to take place during the week commencing Monday 10th May-Thursday 13th May 2021.
PE is on a Monday with Miss Hemming. Please ensure your child attends school wearing their PE kit and has removed any jewellery on this day.
Please don’t hesitate to come to contact us using the class email addresses listed below. If you would like a longer conversation, we can arrange a phone call at a mutually convenient time.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs Turton, Mr Hardwick, Mrs Sutton and Mr Law
