Year 6G

Welcome to Year, 6G! smiley

 

 

Happy New Year, 6G! smiley

 

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for another exciting half-term. Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be exploring the work of Frida Kahlo, as well as studying 6-figure grid references. We will be using our Knowledge Organisers to help us to articulate and process new information - these can be used at home too! 

 

Dear Parents,

Year 6 is a very important year for all of our students, and as a staff, we will work incredibly hard to make it their best year yet. Parents and students often have lots of questions about Year 6, so please feel free to contact school if you ever have any worries or would like a quick chat about your child. I know this year will be brilliant, and I'm really looking forward to working collaboratively with you and all our students, to ensure this year is successful and fun for all. smiley

General Information

 

This half term we will be starting with the Come and See theme of 'Family', celebrating not only our own unique families, but the family we have here at school and in our wider communities.

 

Communication

Please let school know if any of your contact details have changed (phone number, email, addresses) in the event we need to call home or contact you.

 

 

Homework
We will post spellings, English and Maths homework every Monday on Purple Mash, or the VLE to be completed by the following Monday with the children tested on their spellings each week. Please encourage your children to complete their homework every week as well as reading each night (approximately 20-30mins).

 

Completing homework on time, in an organised and structured way are excellent habits to encourage, which will prepare children for high school and form a key part in consolidating their learning. Revising times tables will also help your child with key elements of Maths.

If your child is finding homework a challenge please don’t hesitate to let me know.

 

PE

PE sessions will take place every Friday. The children will wear their PE kits to school on that day.  Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit – branded shorts etc are not part of school uniform.  As the weather becomes cooler, the children may wear jogger bottoms, but they must still wear their school cardigan or jumper – no hoodies.

SWIMMING - We will be swimming on Thursday mornings. Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit, including a swimming hat.

 

Medical

A quick reminder -if your child has a medical condition that staff need to know about, please inform school as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date. 

 

Snack

As we are a ‘Healthy School’ we would like to remind parents that a healthy snack at playtime is encouraged. Please don’t send any chocolate or sweets into school as a snack.

 

Advent

 

This Sunday saw the first candle on the Advent wreath lit in Church. During this time of preparation, the children visited Fr. John and Linda at Church to reflect on what Advent means and how we can prepare for Christmas. It is a time of celebration and joy, when we prepare for not only Christmas with family and friends, but also the birth of Jesus. It's an opportunity to come together as a community and think of all we have achieved, and the year to come. Thank-you Fr. John and Linda for all your efforts in making this Advent time so special.
