Welcome back Year 6
I cannot believe we’re coming up to the end of the year! This year has certainly flown by, but you know what they say... ‘time flies when you’re having fun’! Let’s continue this streak to make the final half-term an amazing one.
Our final Module is all about art. When you think of art, what do you think of? Who do you think of? Does anything or anyone spring to mind? Some of you may be nodding as you read this but if not, now is your chance to get a head start and explore some famous artists and their artwork. Over the half-term you are going to be working within a small group, making some big decisions. You’re going to be given a pot of money to spend on art work and create a gallery, which art work, you will decide. You’ll even create some art of your own to display in your gallery too! After several weeks of creating, you will get the chance to explore the various galleries around Year 6 and answer our Golden Thread question: How do we respectfully disagree?
This module links closely with our Core Skills of: Communicating effectively.
How are groupings arranged in Year 6:
Each academic year, groupings within school are reviewed and changes to these groupings may take place. Restructuring of the groups is based upon the progress children have made in the previous academic year. Teachers use assessments, class work and teacher observations to determine the best group for each child in each subject area. Whilst all children in Year 6 will be following the National Curriculum, the groupings will ensure that teaching is tailored to the group’s current needs.
Learning Journeys should be in school everyday as new information about reading books, trips, letters, homework and upcoming events will be added throughout the week.
Please make sure your PE kit is in school everyday. Each item should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
The Year Group staff are:
Year Co-Ordinator - Mrs Virdee
Class 6.1 - Miss Sutton
Class 6.2 - Mrs Virdee
Class 6.3 - Miss Wiltshire
Class 6.4 - Mrs McGough and Mrs Phillips
Teaching assistants within Year 6 are: Miss Smith, Mrs Yunis and Miss Jones.

Year 6 Residential 2022
We are getting closer to our departure date and both staff and children are excited about being able to once again take part in a residential visit. Below is a video that includes lots of information that both parents/carers and children will need to know to get the best out of this experience. Accompanying this video is a letter detailing the items / equipment you will need to bring with you. Each child will be given a copy of this letter but it can also be found in the section Year 6 letters. If you have any questions, please speak to Mrs Tolley or Mrs Constable.
