Miss Davis, Mrs Wilson, Mrs Bolland and Mrs Sefton welcome you to the Year 6 page. Working alongside us in our classroom are Mrs Boyle, Mrs Price, Mrs Riley and Mrs Linton.
Year 6 is an exciting time– the transition between Primary and Secondary education, so we want it to be a unique and memorable time. We have an exciting year ahead with our Learning Challenge Curriculum. We will be answering questions such as 'How is a battle lost or won?' and 'Why were the Greeks Great?'
In our learning at school, we will all be working to the best of our abilities and encourage parents to ensure the same happens at home with weekly homework and spellings. Each week, children will receive homework in grammar, punctuation and spelling and maths. It is also expected that they will read at home at least three times a week. Homework is due back in school by Tuesday the following week.
There is a lot of hard work preparing for the National SAT tests in May, and all support that parents can give at home with hearing children read/rehearsing times tables will be hugely valuable. The children are tested in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling. We try to balance this hard work with plenty of fun - honest!
Some of the upcoming highlights the children can look forward to are:
· Our annual residential visit to Ingleborough Hall – always a fantastic experience.
- Working with the Young Shakespeare Company.
· Plenty of exciting school trips with links to our fantastic Learning Challenge Curriculum!
If you'd like to discuss anything, please just come and see us.
**Please make sure your child has a white t-shirt, dark shorts/trousers and trainers to change into for P.E.**
