Welcome to Year 6Mc!
A very warm welcome to all of our new students starting Year 6 here at St. Patrick's. I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and feel rested and fresh, ready to start our Autumn term.
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.
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.
Please let school know if any of your contact details have changed (phone number, email, addresses etc) in the event we need to call home or contact you.
We will post spellings, English and Maths homework every MONDAY on Purple Mash, or the VLE to be completed by the following week, with the children tested on their spellings each Friday. 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.
Children may bring in a healthy snack for play times, such as fruit or a cereal bar. Crisps and chocolate are not considered a healthy snack.
P.E. sessions will take place every Wednesday. The children will wear their PE kits to school on that day.
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 If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.
School Mission Statement Day
This week we took a moment in our busy school timetable to re-focus and think about our school Mission Statement and what it means to us as a school, and as individuals. We thought carefully about how we can 'Follow in the Footsteps of Jesus' in our daily lives and fulfil our promise to 'serve, love and learn together.'
The children (and staff!) had a wonderful day, exploring how we can embody the Mission Statement and inspire each other to excellence.
