Welcome to our class page! Here you will find lots of information about what is going on in Year 6.
Our Autumn Newsletter
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to getting back to school for a jam-packed year! We have got lots of exciting things to look forward to!
Quite often, children will express their nerves (and excitement!) for being in Year 6. It is an important year where the children will be expected to work hard; however, it is essential that they enjoy themselves! If you or your child have any concerns, please do let me know and I will contact you at a convenient time.
Our Geography focus this term will be on locational knowledge where we will consider the area in which we live and extend our knowledge to the wider world. Later in the term, will also be asking the question, “Where did all the miners go?” where we will be delving into the miners’ strike of 1984.
A few reminders
· Water bottles: Please make sure that children have water bottles and that they are named. These need to be washed every night and returned to school the following day filled up.
· Reading: Please continue to support us by reading at home with your child for at least 10 minutes a night. We will also be reading with the children in school as regularly as possible.
· Homework: This will be provided online on a Thursday and will be due the following Wednesday. Homework will be linked to the work the children have been doing in school. If the children need any support with their homework, they can come to me before Wednesday and we will work through it together.
· PE: Year 6 PE will take place on a Monday and Thursday. Children are permitted to come into school in their kits and stay in them all day on these days. Remember that PE kit is plain jogging bottoms (no zips/logos) and either their team colour shirt or plain white. Team coloured shirts are available to buy from school at a very reasonable price. Please ensure that children have suitable trainers / plimsolls as well. Children must wear their hair tied back and they will not be able to wear earrings. They will have to remove any studs themselves. Plasters will not be accepted.
Thank you for all your continued support. I am really looking forward to teaching your children this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email (my email address has been sent to you via email!)
