Welcome to Year 6's class page. Here you will find helpful information, newsletters, some useful resources and photos of our learning.
The staff in Year 6 are: Mrs Daysh (teacher) and Mrs Ferry (teaching assistant).
Please come in and see us if there is anything that you are worried about, or if you are unable to get into school, please give us a ring and I will get back to you as soon as possible. We know that Y6 can be difficult, at points, for children and parents. We are here to support everyone as much as we can :-)
Our topic for Spring 2 is 'ID'. Throughout this topic, we will asking the question- 'What makes you...you?' The children will be asked to express their views and opinions and celebrate the fact that everyone is different. We will be looking at DNA, our genes and our fingerprints.
We will be preparing for SATs too and will be doing lots of learning, past papers and revision. Your child may bring home their papers, so that you can see what they need to work on. It would be much appreciated if you could look through these papers with your child and try to show them their mistakes.
A parent meeting will be held on Thursday 15th March at approximately 4.30pm (after boosters) where you can look through past SATs papers and ask any questions that you want.
Boosters will continue Mondays (Maths) until 4.30pm and Thursday (English) until 4.30pm. Please look out for a letter and class dojo message with cancelled sessions (due to residential and holidays) on. These dates are to be confirmed and so please look out for the letter/message.
Our topic for Spring 1 2018 is Hola Mexico! We will be looking at the Mayan people and their beliefs. We will also be looking at the Mexican landscape and culture and comparing it to that of people living in England, with a focus on Mansfield.
Our first topic is 'A Child's War'. We will be investigating World War Two and the effect it had on life for men, women, children and how it has influenced our lives today.
PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please could all children have a PE kit in school at all times, as it is possible that the days may change week on week.
Children will receive a piece of home-learning every Friday (to be handed in the following Wednesday) and will still receive spellings every week (handed out on a Friday and tested the following Thursday).
All children will receive a newsletter this week, providing more information about our topic.
I think that is everything for now and I am excited to see everyone on Wednesday :-)
See you then!
