Year 6

 

Welcome back Year 6!

 

We are so excited to have you back in school and to begin our exciting year together in Year 6, packed with learning, fun and opportunities to shine. It will look a little different to what you are normally used to so we've written you a letter below outlining some of the changes.

 

The main one is to remember that our school day begins at 8.45am and ends at 2.50pm. At both of these times, you will line up in classes in the Year 5/6 playground and wait to be collected by your teacher in the morning, or an adult in the afternoon.

 

Monday, including your first day back on 7th September, is your day for PE. Please wear your kit to school (white top and black bottoms).

 

 

Meet our wonderful Year 6 team.

In Year 6, one of our tasks is to get you ready for secondary school and the first thing we do is give you your very own Homework Diary. You need to bring this to school every single day because you will use this to write down the homework set and when it is due in. Homework will be set every day: sometimes a simple task like 'read your reading book' and other times a project or some grammar tasks.

What to remember each school day:
Monday

PE (wear your kit to school)

As part of our science work we made 'Blood Soup!' Each different ingredient represented a different component of blood. Plasma (orange squash),platelets (rice), red blood cells (red cheerios) and white blood cells (marshmallows)

We used a range of sources to research life in a Victorian workhouse.

We enjoyed discussing own own values and comparing and contrasting those to the Sikh religion

Year 6 had a wonderful first session of 'Forest Schools' in the woods. We played hide and seek, designed and made fairy doors, made rafts and put them in the beck and just had a lot of fun!

We're really enjoying Maths, particularly using apps on the iPad to quicken up our basic number facts.
