Year Six 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Year Six

 

Welcome back to school!

We hope that you have all had a safe and rewarding time with your families during the summer break; we are really looking forward to returning as we have missed you all! We realise that the last six months will have been different for everyone and want to reassure you that we will be doing our best to make your time back as safe and familiar as possible. 

We understand that it has been a challenging time for children and grown-ups and the well-being of our children is particularly important to us. For the first few weeks of getting used to the changes around school, we will also be spending time talking about our feelings with our aim of children overcoming any wobbles we have over returning to school and to instil a positive mind-set to the year ahead!

As the oldest children, this is an important year for them and I hope they all enjoy the year and work hard in achieving their potential to become strong independent learners. Remember... practise makes perfect!

This term we are focusing on the World War Two and the impact it had on the adults and children in Britain. There are many interesting facts to discover and learn about and children will be asked to engage in some research projects at home over half-term.

It is important they build on solid foundations from previous years and work hard to help prepare for life at high school. It will be extremely helpful if you are able to continue to support your child at home by continually monitoring reading and progress with any homework. The children have all been given their access details for Times Tables Rockstars and MyMaths, so please encourage them to use them at home.

Our weekly routine will be...

  • Wednesday- Homework handed in the black tray in the classroom with completed homework tasks. Some homework may be online.
  • Tuesday and Friday- Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits (white t-shirts, black/ navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms during the Winter months and trainers or black pumps). Regular school uniform is not required on this day. 
  • Friday- Reading records will be monitored and children will have a chance to change reading books, if required. Children will also receive their homework on Fridays with tasks to be completed at home.

Please keep your eye on our class page and blog to keep up-to-date with any news or exciting activities that are happening.

As always, if you need anything, please feel free to phone the school or email me directly, f.michael@holyname.manchester.sch.uk
