NSPCC Number day and other bits!

First of all, we would like to wish you all a lovely three day weekend – enjoy!

Hopefully you have had a letter regarding our NSPCC Number Day which will take place on Friday 7th May. We are using it as a ‘Mufti Day’, in order to raise some money for this amazing charity – payment through Tucasi please. We would also like the children to come to school dressed and/or showing any digit and/or digits. The Maths Team shared some information about this with the children, so they should be able to tell you all about it. We will be doing some fun Maths activity during the day, and I for one, cannot wait!

Just a note about PE – both classes need to come in their kit on Thursday as well as their usual PE day.

Finally, we are delighted to welcome Miss. Ross and Miss. Vyas to the Year Six Team from Tuesday and for the next six weeks. We are looking forward to working alongside them.

Sending best wishes to you all,

The Year Six Team

A Quick Update!

Happy Friday to you all. We hope that you had a wonderful Easter break.

The children have all settled into the new term really well, with the lovely sunshine meaning that we can spend some of our learning time outside. The new adventure trail is also proving to be a hit! We were also blessed with good weather for our BMX Day with Mike Mullins, where the children really exemplified a Growth Mindset.

This is just a quick reminder that it is the turn of Class 12 to spend some of Thursday morning with the ‘Youth Activators’, so they will need to come to school in their PE kits. Also, a date for your diary, is our NSPCC Number Day on Friday 7th May, where we will be having a mufti day in order to raise money for this amazing charity.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend – fingers crossed for more sunshine!

Best wishes,

The Year Six Team

P.E. Kits

Good Morning to you all,

Please could the children come dressed in their PE kits on the first Monday back after the Easter break, ready for their BMX Day.

We would also like to take this opportunity to say many thanks for all you continued support this term, and to wish you all a very enjoyable and restful Easter break.

Best wishes,

The Year Six Team

Last Minute Reminders

Good Morning Everyone,

We hope that you all had a lovely weekend. This post is just to remind you of a few things for this week and the start of next term. Firstly, there will be the Easter t-shirt parade on Wednesday, which will look slightly different this year, for obvious reasons, but will still involve the judging and the chocolate prizes! Secondly, a reminder that Class 12 will finish at 1.55pm on Wednesday and Class 11 will finish at 2pm. Thirdly, there will be no homework set over the holidays, so that the children (and you) can enjoy a well-deserved rest. Finally, if you haven’t already, please can you let us have the permission slip for the BMX Day, which is on the first Monday back after Easter. Unfortunately, your child will no be able to take part without this.

Kindest regards,

The Year Six Team

P.E. Kit Reminder

Good Morning All,

We hope that you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the Spring sunshine yesterday.

This is just a quick reminder, to say that it is Class 12’s turn to work with the Youth Activators on Thursday, so they will need to come to school in their P.E. kits.

Wishing you all a lovely week,

The Year Six Team

Sharing the Joy!

Good afternoon to you all and happy Friday.

We all just wanted to share our joy at having all the children back in school. It has been such a lovely week, observing them interacting with the adults in school and, importantly, their friends. They have had plenty of opportunities to work collaboratively in their pairs and in groups outside (mindful always of social distancing). The children have also shown a real engagement with their learning, and it has been lovely to watch them share some of what they learnt and achieved during lockdown.

We would also like to take this opportunity, to remind class 11 that it is their turn to work with the Youth Activators on Thursday, so they will need to come to school in their PE kits.

As you are aware, the class emails have been disabled, so if you need to contact us please do, but go through the School Office.

Wishing you all a restful weekend,

Mrs. Wistow, Mrs. Ward, Mrs. Clamp, Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Barker and the rest of the Year Six Team

A Quick Update

Good afternoon to you all. We hope that you all had a lovely weekend.

Firstly and most importantly, we would all like to say how lovely it was to see all the children again. It was great to catch-up with them all and hear all their news. They all seemed to be glad to be back with their friends – there were plenty of smiling faces! We would just like to reiterate, that if there is anything you wish us to know, as your children start to settle back into their school routines, then do please let us know via the office, and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Secondly, there is a slight tweak to the PE kit information that we posted on Friday. We are having the wonderful ‘Youth Activators’ in to work with Year Six on a Thursday, so every other Thursday your child will also need to come to school in their PE kit, including trainers. This week is the turn of Class 12. We will also endeavour to remind the children.

Kindest regards,

The Year Six Team

P.E. Kits

Apologies for a second post, but we have had some enquiries about which days the children need to wear their P.E. kits. Year 6 typically have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday, and just like prior to Lockdown, the children can come to school in their kits. Initially, there may be some deviation from those allocated days, as we focus on settling the children back into school.

Kind regards,

The Year Six Team

Return to School

Good afternoon to you all. This is just a quick post to say, firstly and foremost, many thanks to you all for the amazing support you have shown the children and us, during Lockdown. It will however, be lovely to have the children back in school on Monday, and we are very much looking forward to catching up with them and hearing all their news.

If at all possible, could the children bring in one piece of work that they would like to share with us and the rest of their class. Of course, if they would like to bring more of their work in that would be great, however, we will only have time to share one piece of work per child.

We are keen for your children to settle back in to school life as seamlessly as possible, but we also understand that there may be some teething problems and anxieties that need to be addressed. As always, if there is anything that we need to be made aware of as we continue through the term, then please contact us via the office and we will respond via email or phone call as soon as possible.

We wish you all a lovely weekend,

Mrs. Wistow, Mrs. Ward, Mrs, Clamp, Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Barker and the rest of the Year Six Team

Live Session

Firstly, we would all like to welcome you back to a new term, and hope that you all had a lovely half-term break. Secondly, we would like to say how much we enjoyed seeing all the children this morning. We have really missed them; to see all of their smiling faces was a real treat! We have everything crossed for a return to school soon, but the live sessions are hopefully a way of keep us all going until then.

The link for next week will be on Google Classroom, the same as this week, and we look forward to seeing the children again then.

Have a lovely week, and remember to contact us through our class emails if you need anything.

Kindest regards,

Mrs. Wistow, Mrs. Ward, Mrs. Clamp, Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Barker and the rest of the Year Six Team
