We hope you have had a well deserved break and weren’t ‘blown away’ with the very windy weather we have had. Hopefully you have been able to spot some local wildlife too, especially birds, as they were a focus for your Science homework over the half term.
Weather in our local area is something we will be looking into this half term, as we will be researching physical characteristics of the United Kingdom and comparing them with somewhere abroad. You could start having a think at home about the climate, rivers, rainfall and natural resources in the UK.
Throughout our new module, we are going to be exploring stereotypes- we will need to understand what they are, how they are created, why they exist and the impact they have on our thoughts and decisions. We will also be using stereotypes as a theme in a computing project this half term. Can you think of any stereotypes, before we explore them together?
By the end of our module, we will need to answer our Golden Thread question: Are stereotypes reliable?
This module links closely with our Core Skills of: Life-long Learning, Being Effective Communicators and Being a Good Citizen.
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 Marshall
Mrs Buncher will be teaching in each class on a weekly basis.
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.
