Welcome to Year 6!
Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible
A very warm welcome to Year 6 from Mrs Plaskitt, Mrs Beckinsale-Yates, Mrs Price, Mrs Goodman and Mr Ahearne!
In Year 6 children are given the opportunity to build on their successes from their time in Key Stage 2. Throughout Year 6, the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: Ancient Greece, South America and Natural Disasters.
Throughout the year we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on our 4 Rs.
All of the topics will have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.
We also encourage our year 6 pupils to become young ambassadors and take on leading roles around school. We have a young leaders programme which runs on a Friday afternoon, where our pupils lead our year 3/4 children in P.E. and music activities. Our super sixes also get opportunities to develop their gardening skills and complete a very exciting 'Forest Schools' programme which is always incredibly popular.
Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our PE day is Friday; children will have one session with Corporal Butcher but there are often extra PE opportunities throughout the week.
The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our aim is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.
Our attendance for last half term was
Class 9 94.95%
Class 10 96.80%
We are trying hard to improve this for next half term.
We use class dojo to support good home / school communication and enable children to celebrate their achievements and share this with the people who care.
