A warm welcome to our Year 6 page! If your child is in Year 6 then please familiarise yourself with this page as it will let you know the various activities the class are currently involved in.
I hope you have all had a lovely and relaxing Summer Holiday! As we return to school on the 2nd of September we will start our new history topic. We will be focusing on the enquiry question 'Is War Ever Justified?' for this topic we will explore the history of World War 1 and World War 2, understanding the outbreak of war, life in the trenches and what it means to be an evacuee, as well as much more! In our reading and English lessons, we will be focussing on the book 'Private Peaceful' by Michael Morpurgo, a story of a young boy looking back on his life in the trenches of World War 1 in France. Using this book as a focus, we will be using it to guide us through our English genres, creating narratives, setting descriptions, character descriptions and writing our own diary entries.
I'm looking forward to another great year with you all, sharing every experience with you and hoping you try your very best!
Miss McHale and Mrs Lee
Important Things to Remember!
Spellings for the week will go out with the children on Monday and we will do a spelling test on Friday. Please encourage your child to practice their spellings at home as there will be DOJO points available to children that have worked hard!
Children will be given homework on a Friday and it will be due back in on the following Monday - DOJO points will be awarded to children that give their homework in on time!
It is so important to read at home! When you have read at home and get your record signed by an adult you can collect stickers on our class chart! The more stickers you get, the more chance of some amazing prizes!
We have a beautiful uniform at St Mary's and we pride ourselves on our fantastic appearance. Please make sure you attend school in the correct uniform, always looking lovely and neat!
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday, don't forget your PE kit!
