Welcome to Year 6

In Year 6 we want to make our final year of our EM journey our best!

Our Gospel Value

Our classroom Gospel Value is ‘Simplicity’ and from the very beginning of the year, we try to deepen our understanding of what this means, applying it to different situations throughout the year. Our first is thinking of our class charities.  Our second is how we can use our Gospel Value to support others in the school. Each child has a specific role and responsibility across the school, helping younger children and staff members alike. We know Year 6 can be tough with the end of year tests but we have fun and laughter along the way!

Our Class Charities

We currently have two class charities – The Bumblebee Conservation Trust and NDCYS. Throughout the year, we think about, fundraise and promote both charities. We are particularly excited this year because we are spending the week at the Briars in June, so we hope to share with them all we’ve learnt and raised.

Being prepared for school each day

Children will need their waterproof coat, a bottle filled with water, a bag for reading books and homework and a packed lunch (if required). Pencil cases and other school equipment will be provided for children by school. It is important that we limit what is being brought into school, so pencil cases and other accessories from home won’t be needed.

Break and lunch times

Children have one breaktime in the morning. For this time, they are welcome to bring a healthy snack with them to eat during break.

How can we stay healthy?

In Year 5 and 6, we are currently learning about how we can stay healthy, with the overarching question of the term being: ‘How can we stay healthy?’. Our subject driving the topic is PSHE, where we’re looking at the risks and effects of drugs, as well as peer pressure and influences. Science also helps us to answer the overarching question, since we’re looking into the circulatory system, food and nutrients to keep us healthy and the effect of diet and exercise on our body. As our topic is all about medicine and keeping healthy, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to read the book: George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. Children will be exploring this book over the coming weeks, writing poems, journalistic reports, persuasive texts and balanced arguments.

We have got a lot to be excited about this term with lots of new knowledge being taught, World Book Day and Science week to mention a few!

Year 6 homework will be set every Monday. Children will be asked to complete at least one practise SATs test in their revision guides for SPaG, Maths and Reading. Homework is due in every Friday.

PE

Please ensure children have their PE kit in school every day and that all items are clearly labelled. Children will now get changed at school on a Friday morning. Y5/6 will have PE on and Friday and children will now get changed at school in the morning. May we remind you that this consists of a plain white t-shirt, blue shorts/skirt, plimsolls or trainers. A plain dark tracksuit may be worn for outdoor lessons. Also, a gentle reminder that earrings need to be removed for PE lessons, therefore ensure children come to school without their earrings or ensure your child can take out and put them back in after the PE lesson.
