Welcome to Year Six
Hello and welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is a very important year, but can also be the best year of Primary school, with a residential trip away as well as taking a greater responsibility within school.
We hope that you have a fantastic time this year, and if you want to talk to us about anything you know where we are.
Mrs Willis and Mr Ogle
Meet the Teaching Staff
This year’s team is Mr Ogle and Mrs Willis, and they will be supported by Mr Handy and Mrs Shead.
Children are being encouraged to carry on their SAT’s revision in their revision booklets up to the week beginning 8th May. Mrs Willis’ class to bring them into school on Wednesdays and Mr Ogle’s class on Fridays.
Week beginning the 15th May, we will issue out a BINGO homework sheet which will link with our Maya Experience Day. During this week, the children will also be receiving DARE booklets to complete tasks in.
Children to create these after Maya Experience Day
To be issued week beginning 15th May
Pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please feel free to comment on the reading children are doing at home. We encourage all parents to make a note of children’s reading as prizes will be awarded at the end of each half-term.
Reading is Fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be.
Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard for at least fifteen minutes each night and notes to be made in their planners.
PE is every Monday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor) afternoon. We ask the children to bring fleeces and jogging trousers as well as outdoor footwear (if required during the colder months of the year), as the children will have an indoor and an outdoor session each week. This should include:
- White T-shirt
- Navy shorts (indoor PE)
- Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
Summer 1 Activities include:
Indoor P.E. (Monday): Circuit Training
Outdoor P.E. (Thursday): Tennis and Athletics
