Welcome to Year 6!
Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible Resilient
A very warm welcome to Year Six, from Mrs Price, Mrs BY, Miss Monaghan, Mrs Turner, Mrs Goodman and Mr Priestley.
In Year 6, children are given the opportunity to build on their successes from their time in Key Stage 2. Throughout Year 6, children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: Revolutions, Frozen Planets, Blood Heart, Gallery Rebels and A Child's War.
Our first topic is Revolution, focusing on the Victorian Era. Have a read of this to find out some more!
Are you listening? What is 27 plus 45? Come on, faster now. We haven’t got all day. Find out about super strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure that you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible. Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and the first flushing toilet. Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered. Take on the role of an important reformer and present your good causes to the Queen. Can you gain the support of a wealthy sponsor? Full steam ahead to the Victorian age.
Our year book story will be Oliver Twist.
Throughout the year, we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on developing children's social and emotional development. We will participate in circle time activities, group work and link our learning to Fundamental British Values (FBV) and our 5 Rs as much as possible. This half term our 5R focus is RESPECT and our SEAL topic is 'NEW BEGINNINGS!
Anti-bullying at Broomhill; All classrooms have this Anti-bullying poster displayed, which has been designed by some of our children. Every year, Anti-bullying is marked by having themed lessons as part of our Keeping Safe week. We have a zero tolerance to bullying. If you have any concerns about this, please see a member of staff.
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Every child at Broomhill Junior School participates in at least 2 hours of physical education (P.E) a week. Furthermore, we also encourage the children to participate in completing 'The Daily Mile'. Because of this, we please ask that you ensure P.E kits are kept in school all week (including a change of outdoor trainers).
Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our PE days are Tuesdays where we will be learning all about TRI-GOLF and Fridays where we will be DANCING, but there are often extra PE opportunities throughout the week. Children will also have daily physical activities.
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.
We use ClassDojo to support good home / school communication and enable children to celebrate their achievements and share this with the people who care.
