Year 6

 

Welcome to Year 6

Staff in your classroom: Miss Laura Jackson(teacher) ) 

 Your interests/hobbies: I (Miss Jackson) love anything and everything to do with the theatre. I enjoy keeping fit by running, swimming and walking. Travelling is another thing I am passionate about and enjoy hearing about new and exciting places to visit.

What can children expect in your year group: Year 6 is a fantastic year; it’s the final year in primary school and goes with a bang!  We work extremely hard, it’s head down and nose to the grindstone, making sure we are achieving our true potential in readiness for High School. After SATs we let our feet off the gas a little and throw ourselves into drama and a more creative curriculum. In year 6 you can expect to work very hard but have lots of fun along the way, you’ll be fully prepared for the challenges and excitement of going up to High School and into a new big wide world!

How can parents help in your classroom e.g. any useful websites you would like adding to your class page. Parents can help just by continuing to be supportive as your child reaches the end of their Primary School journey. Do keep that home/school link going and do pop in to see us all, just because we’re top juniors doesn’t mean you can’t come in to help – you’d be made most welcome.

 

 

We have all been as calm as cucumbers during this week and have enjoyed the special SATs breakfasts each morning. A very big well done to every member of Y6 for putting such amazing amounts of effort in, all in preparation for High School and your future goals! 

 

The written pieces to come out of our Stephen Lawrence Day were absolutely amazing. A big well done to Y6 for their incredibly mature thoughts and their steps in ensuring everybody gets to live their best life!

Here a few snaps from our Shakespeare themed week. We produced lots of wonderful writing, took part in drama classes and had a wonderful dress up day as famous characters. Can you guess who were dressed as?

 

 

 

We had a very special visit to mass last week to help guide us on our project ‘A beginners guide to mass’. Thank you to all the parishioners who gave their time to answer our questions. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our letter from Father Eamon about our ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ where we have donated large amounts of food to our local area to help those in greater need than us at Christmas.

Ethan & Natan had a lot of fun making our class wreaths to help us focus on prayer in Advent

Writing

In November & December we have had a big focus on editing our work using a new technique where we carefully scan each line of work. These pieces link to recent report writing we have done about The Vikings.

Helping at Home

Following our Maths information evening for parents, we have shared some useful documents to see how Maths is taught in school. The most effective way for you to help would be to practise the ‘progression in number facts’ and times tables.
