Welcome to Year 6's page. Here we will keep you updated on what has been going on in Year 6 over the year - it's sure to be a busy one! At the bottom of this page you will find documents and links that you may find handy to use with your child.
Indoor PE kit consists of blue shorts, a yellow t-shirt and black pumps. For Outdoor PE lessons children will need a kit that will keep them sufficiently warm and dry so a tracksuit, trainers, clean socks and a lightweight waterproof jacket would be ideal. Both PE kits should be in school every day but the days we have our lessons are Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Children need to have their hair tied back and be free of all jewellery on PE days. It is a good idea to make sure that earrings are left at home.
Children will be set a piece of Maths and a piece of English homework each week. This is alongside the expectation that children will read at home at least three times per week (with a comment written into their reading diaries). Homework should be returned to school by Wednesday. If an Internet connection is required and it not available at home, children will be able to attend homework club on a Friday lunchtime to ensure that they can complete their homework. Should any children not return their homework on time, it will be expected that they will complete it at homework club.
Children who receive brass instrument tuition must have their instruments with them every Friday ready for their lessons with Mr Bennett.
Who were the Maya people and what have we learnt from them?
The title of our Topic for this term is 'Who were the Maya people and what have we learnt from them?' We started our topic by attempting to build a Maya temple from sugar cubes! Here's how we got on!
