Welcome to Year 6!
Mrs Winfield and Mrs Butler
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. Children need to have their hair tied back and be free of all jewellery on PE days (Tuesdays). 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.

On Monday 10th June we set off on our long-awaited residential trip to Laches Wood OEC. We took part in activities such as: canoeing, rock climbing, bouldering, archery, shelter building, para-fan drop, crate building, BMXing and caving. We also had a day trip to Carding Mill Valley near to Church Stretton and to RAF Cosford which we loved. The staff at Laches Wood were incredibly complimentary about our children, and even said that some staff were trying to change their shifts so that they could work with us as they'd heard how well behaved and good-humoured our children were! We're incredibly proud of you, Year 6, and we're pleased you had such a fantastic week!
Below is a very small selection of photographs from the week...

Good luck Year 6!
Week beginning 13th May, Year 6 will be sitting their SATs assessments. We know children will do their very best and do themselves and us very proud!
A big thank you to all parents, grandparents and friends who joined us for our learning afternoon. I hope you enjoyed listening to and viewing the children's presentations - I know the children had a great time showcasing and sharing their learning with you.
World War 2 Outreach Visitors
Today we were visited by Mark McKenzie and Peter Armitage. Mark spoke to us about life during World War 2, with a focus on life for children. We learned about air raid shelters, gas masks, The Blitz and were able to handle genuine WW2 artefacts too as well as taking part in an air raid drill - we had to take cover under the table when the siren blared! Mark is from a German family and he told us stories from his family members during the war - it was incredibly interesting to hear about the war from a German perspective. After break, we did drills on the playground and learned how to 'stand to attention', 'stand at ease' and turn and march. Following on from that, we had a talk from Peter Armitage MBE who worked for the Royal Mail. Peter told us about the role of the Royal Mail during WW2 and also about school life and how Coventry was bombed during the Blitz. Check out all of our photos below... We had a great morning and learned so much! Thank you Mark and Peter.
