Y6 this year are already working hard to prepare for SATs, but we are having as much fun as possible while we are learning too. Our teacher is Miss Hill, and our teaching assistant is Miss Worsey, who is new to the school but is already doing a brilliant job at supporting the children in their learning.
Our theme until Christmas is What's Happening Now?, which focuses on current events in local and national news. As our class's main focus, we will be looking at the increased interest in mental health. We will be looking at how Princes William and Harry are promoting being open about feelings and emotions; learn how to investigate what we are feeling, and how to be proactive in increasing our mental well-being. We will look at our favourite ways of relaxing, and share ideas on how to be more mindful. This will include art and music.
PE is on Wednesday or Thursday and will be outside as much as possible this half term - we will be practising football skills. If you would like your child to wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings to keep out the cold please send them in - but be warned that they will get muddy! Please ensure that PE kit is in school at all times.
Y6 will of course be making their Christmas games for the Christmas Fair - watch this space for more details!
We are delighted to welcome Mrs Full from St Ives School to teach us French every week - this will give us an excellent start to Y7, and is really good fun.
Y6 homework is now based on revision books. A list of dates and requirements has come home with your children already, and there is also a copy on this page. There will be a creative homework grid too - this is purely optional and designed to enable the children to explore their class theme creatively should they wish to. Revision homework is not a test - it is so that the children and I can see what they need to be taught next. If your child cannot complete a certain aspect of the revision book, please write a note in their communication book and we will go over it in school. Above all do not worry!
