Hello everyone and welcome to the Year 6 page! We hope that you all had fantastic summers and have really enjoyed our first half term back thus far. We have been incredibly impressed by the effort and attitudes of the children in these first few weeks back and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them better in this time. We have already had a few of our WOW experiences in this brief period of time. Firstly, ‘bikeability’ was great to be involved in as it gave the children an opportunity to develop their cycling skills, including their on-road ability. Secondly, our week at Shugborough was fabulous for all to partake in as it ensured that all children gained or further developed vital life skills such as teamwork, communication and leadership. It was marvellous to see the pupils grow as individuals and we are sure that they have all made memories for life.
Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday.All children will be receiving the same spellings, unless otherwise agreed with individual families. As stated in a recent letter, the ‘Super Spellings’ booklets are now no longer being used in classrooms.
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.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in the following week (written homework on a Wednesday, all others on a Friday unless otherwise stated).
Homework could be either English, Maths or Creative related. The English will directly influence the following week’s learning, whereas the maths generally consolidates work already completed in curriculum time.
PE is on a Monday with Mr Triggs. It would be useful for children to have PE kit in school at all times as we will aim to complete another session per week (weather dependent). Please can all children bring a named PE kit and suitable footwear.
Please don’t hesitate to come to speak to any of us at either the start of the day or at pick up. If you would like a longer conversation we can always book one in.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs Turton, Mr Hardwick, Mrs Sutton and Mrs Brian.
