Mr Shadwick and Mrs Lee
Welcome to Year 6. We try to make your child's final year at primary school as much fun as possible. Children will be given the opportunity to take on more responsibility and of course there is the residential in Whitby! There is a lot of hard work to be done also and the support our children receive from home is so important to us.
Our PE day is Tuesday and children are expected to have their PE kit with them on this day.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be handed in no later than the Wednesday after.
We encourage your child to read as much as possible and appreciate your support in encouraging them to do so at home.
We are now entering the summer term, undoubtedly a very exciting and challenging time for our year 6 children. While much of our work will be centered around SATs preparation, the Gallery Rebels topic will give them an opportunity to investigate the world of art. The writing opportunities within the topic are fantastic and I look forward to seeing what the children can produce be that with a pen, pencil or paintbrush!
SATs Parent Meeting
For the parents unable to attend, below is the presentation from the SATs Parent Meeting. Details of timings, revision opportunities etc. are all contained within. I have also attached the greater depth maths problems mentioned during the meeting.
The Spring Term
The spring term is upon us. There's no escaping the fact that the SATs tests are literally months away now but we will be doing all we can to make the children's last 6 months at St Mary's enjoyable. The Nowhere Emporium is one of the greatest books of this generation and not only will the kids love reading it but they will also get to do plenty of activities and fun writing relating to it. Our afternoons will all be about honing those all important reading comprehension and maths reasoning skills and I've promised the kids the odd game of bingo if they deliver during these sessions!!
The children absolutely loved their creative writing workshop with Peter J Murray. He told them how to write a really scary story as well as sharing some of his own.
