Welcome to the Year 6 page.

Mrs Priday and Miss Sanders are teaching in class 6PR and Mrs White is teaching in class 6W

Mrs Donaldson and Mrs English will be our teaching assistants this year.

 

Year 6 -Summer 2019

  

This term we will be investigating the Maya civilisation and their unusual religious and social practices.  As part of understanding what was important to the Mayan people, we will be exploring the sorts of masks and head-dresses they would have worn and will make our own ‘death-masks’. As we discover more about how their society was established, we will learn about democracy in our country and how our laws and decisions about our future are made. 

 

 

Across the curriculum: In Science our topic is light and electricity; in computing we will be developing our understanding of coding; RE - looking at Humanism.  

 

PE

6PR children will need their PE kits for Friday each week.

6W children will need their PE kits for Friday each week.

Please make sure they have the appropriate kit such as black shorts, white top, trainers.

 

As the weather is getting warmer children need to have a drinks bottle and a cap/hat.

 

Reading continues to be a priority in Year 6 and we would urge you to hear your child read as often as possible. It is important that the children are also given the opportunity to talk about what they have read and answer questions as this helps them to understand what they are reading. We will hear the children read throughout the week but we would like to stress that this will not be on a daily basis.

Important dates:

We will be performing our end of year play on Wednesday 10th July- 1.45pm and Thursday 11th July 5pm.

We will be going to crucial crew on Friday 21st June.

Residential trip to Oakerwood – Monday 24th – Wednesday 26th June

Year 6 transition day Thursday 27th June- Children will be visiting their secondary schools

  

Please come and see us if you have any concerns.

Mrs Priday and  Mrs White
