Welcome To Year 6!
Welcome to our Year 6 page. We look forward to teaching your child this academic year and are looking forward to an action-packed year, creating engaging thinkers and fantastic memories!
Your class teachers this year will be Mr Burrows (6SB) and Mr Gwynne (6JG).
We are also very lucky to have Mrs Evans, Mrs Latham, Mrs Denham-Marsh, Mrs Khanom, Mrs Khatun, Mrs Bibi and Mrs Lomas who will be working alongside the children on a regular basis.
This year, Year 6 will have PE on a Thursday. On Thursdays, please could you allow the children to come to school in their PE kits.
Due to lockdown restrictions we will not be giving out or collecting in pieces of homework yet. Children's usage of TT Rockstars, Reading Plus, Rapid Readers and IDL will be monitored and this is our primary homework activity.
Please remember your reading book and water bottle every day. Reading books will be collected in on a Friday, sanitised over the weekend and then replaced. Please ensure you hear your child read as regularly as possible and write down whether you have heard them in their reading journal.
Thank you for your help, assistance and patience in this unusual time.
Unfortunately, 6SB have had to close their bubble as of the end of school day, 5/10/20.
Government guidance now states that your child, from 6SB, must self-isolate. This means that they are not to return in any capacity to school until their date of return on Friday 16th of October. This includes coming to collect siblings. They should not interact in different settings, including religious, commercial or leisure settings.
Children will work from home on Seesaw and work will be added daily. Children who can not and do not have access to the internet have been given a pack of the work that will be covered by those on Seesaw and will be expected to return their completed packs when the 6SB bubble reopens on Friday 16th October. A mark scheme has been uploaded below to assist you in helping your child.
If you lose your pack, you can access it from our website. Alternatively, packs can and will be sent out to your home if needed.
If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to call the office.
What to do if you are off whilst the bubble is still open
Some families may find they are self-isolating, yet the other Year 6 children are still attending school each day. The following 3 printouts below give children work to do from home if they are off whilst the rest of their bubble are still in school. Children can do the work on paper or in an exercise book if requested or sent from school.
Our School Day:
8.40: School starts - children complete spelling and multiplication assessments in class. Please ensure your child is at school ready to start at this time.
11.45 - 12.30: Dinner time. Please ensure dinner money goes directly to the office. Please speak to the office staff if you have any queries.
2.50: School finishes. Please ensure your child knows if they can walk home alone. If they are collected, please ensure you are ready to collect them at 2.50 so we can keep the playground as clear as possible.
