Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to 6HB and 6KJ’s blog, here you will be able to read about and see all the exciting things that the classes have been up to over the year. We hope you enjoy looking through all the children’s hard work and can see how much fun they are having.

Meet the Teachers 

Our Year 6 team, Miss Jones (Teacher), Miss Burns (Teacher) Mr Bulger (Teacher), Mrs Harding (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Ellis (Teaching Assistant). Any of our year 6 team will be happy to talk to you about your child’s needs and interests.

PE

Year 6 have PE with Coach Brian. 6KJ have PE on a Monday afternoon and 6HB have PE on a Tuesday afternoon. Children will need their kits on both days in case of a swap or have group interventions taking place. PE is a compulsory subject and children are expected to have the correct kit. Please ensure that your child’s name is on ALL items of clothing.

Homework and Spellings

Homework is handed out every Friday and is due back the following Wednesday. Homework is based around the work the children have done in class that week to help consolidate the learning.

Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are then tested on the following Friday.

Booster 

The Spring term boosters will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays after school, looking at English, such as reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling, and maths. Booster will run from 3.15 – 4.30pm and children will be given a snack and a drink.

Hometime

Children may walk home by themselves with parental permission, a letter must be handed into the office or to the class teacher. Children that do walk home by themselves should not be staying on the school grounds after 3.15pm. If your child is being picked up by another person that is not on our contact list you need to ring and tell the school so that we are aware.

Our Work and Trips

This is our Year 6 Curriculum long term curriculum plan of what we will be looking at in all subjects over the school year.

This was our class trip to Royden Park where we worked on our team building skills and map reading skills.

 

This was our family assembly at the beginning of the year. We did ours all about a local Liverpool hero called James Clarke. We were lucky enough to have James’ grandson join us for our assembly.

In ICT last term we took part in a research and presentation topic where we had to research the Mayan civilization and then present our findings to the class.

Miss Burns is our Phase 4 Leader and teaches one of our year 6 classes.  For further information, please contact the school.
