Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome back to the Summer term and I hope that you all had an excellent Spring break.  Miss Shaw, Mrs McCready, Mrs Kavanagh and I are so proud of how hard Year 6 have been working and they are very much ready for their transition to high school. 

 

Throughout this term I will continue to teach our class on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday mornings and all day on Thursday and Friday, whilst Miss Shaw will also be teaching our class on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Both of us are delighted to have Mrs McCready and Mrs Kavanagh working alongside us and together we aim to continue to give your child a fun and challenging term that is rich with different learning opportunities.

 

We have had a brilliant year so far and throughout this term our topic will be themed around investigating the question 'In modern Britain is there still a place for village life?' Within this unit our children will take on the roles and responsibilities of a village community focusing on the Fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and tolerance of different faiths beliefs.

Within literacy our children will continue to develop their Writing and Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammar skills by exploring a range of persuasive forms of writing and taking part in class debates. Our children will also continue to apply all of their writing skills within a range of genres and subject areas. Within maths our children will be using and applying the full range of their mathematical skills to solve real life problems and challenges relating to village life such as: budget setting for the fete; grid references; sorting and classifying data; area and perimeter of locations and many more fun and exciting challenges.

I have also attached a topic web to our class page that will enable you to see in greater detail the learning journey your child will undertake this term.

 

On a practical note the children will continue to have PE on a Monday and a Thursday. Please could you make sure that your child keeps their PE kit in school and that every piece of clothing is clearly labelled with their name. If possible please could your child also bring in an old long sleeved shirt from home to use during Art and Design Technology activities.

 

Homework in year 6 will continue to involve weekly literacy, maths and spelling tasks. In addition, your child will be set two creative learning log tasks throughout the half term. Homework will be set on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday.

 

In addition to weekly homework, it is expected that your child should read for 10-15 minutes every day. We would like you to encourage your child to record in their reading diary every time they have read both at home and at school.

 

RE: Conway Centre Adventure Week Monday 5th – 9th June

As I have explained previously our year 6 residential visit to the Conway Centre is scheduled for Monday 5th June to Friday 9th June.

So that I can ensure that you have all the necessary information for our visit - I would like to invite you to an information evening on Thursday 18th May at 5pm

As has been quoted on our year 6 web page since September, the contributions for this visit will be £330. As I have explained previously you can make your payments for this visit through Parent Pay. 

 

Thank you for your support and together with Miss Shaw, Mrs McCready and Mrs Kavanagh I look forward to continuing to work with you and your child to enable them to make further progress throughout this term. If you have any concerns please feel free to come and speak to me.
