Welcome to Year 6

 

Mr A Longworth and Miss D Cohen - Year 6 Teachers  

Mrs C Devine - Year 6 Teaching Assistant

Miss Hilton - Year 6 Support Staff Assistant

 

Welcome to Year 6. We lead a fantastic team of staff who are here to make Year 6 the most productive, successful and enjoyable year ever! As Year 6 is the last year at St.Margaret's, working hard and embracing all aspects of school life is something we encourage you to do. We will help you develop your independence, confidence and skills in order for you to move through the SATS and prepare you for high school. 

 

We have extremely high expectations and will expect you all to work to the very best of your capabilities. Concentration and hard work will be the key to achieving your very best throughout the year. Year 6 will be expected to set good examples of behaviour and be positive role models for the younger children to follow. You will have the opportunity to take on extra roles and responsibilities in and around school. When in class be prepared to work with even greater periods of concentration and always look to challenge yourself in every lesson. We will be an awesome TEAM!

YEAR 6 WEEKLY NEWS...  

 

Friday 20th May, 2022

 

The children had a slight shock, this week, when they realised that there is still work to be done! They thought that SATs marked the end of the year...if only!!! laugh So, we carried on with the curriculum! On the plus side, the weather has been quite nice. Please could you remind your children to bring their water bottles? They may also want to consider applying sun-cream. Year 6 have also been busy making bunting in preparation for the upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations, in school - we will have a very festive classroom!!!

 

I hope the weather remains as glorious throughout the weekend! See you on Monday! yes

Friday 13th May, 2022

 

Well! The main news from this week was the completion of SATs! Every morning, the children came into class early to chat with their friends and have croissants, biscuits and orange juice in preparation of the task ahead. We feel the tests went as well as could be expected and we are very proud of the children for how they conducted themselves. 

Friday saw Year 6 walk to Heaton Park, for the day. Armed with our packed lunches, we enjoyed some time on the playground, played football on the grass and were let loose in the forest...laugh One more, we were proud of the children for their behaviour on the trip - they are credit to St. Margaret's and they represent the school very well! What a busy week! Well done, Year 6!

Friday 6th May, 2022

 

  Year 6 have had a regular week of lessons as we approach our SATs, next week. They have had the opportunity to ask us about anything they don't understand and we have fielded lots of questions about the week itself - mainly regarding the croissants, biscuits and juice that they will get every morning!!!

 

  We have talked to the children about the importance of enjoying their weekend, with their family and friends, doing things that they enjoy. It's perfectly okay to look something up that you feel you don't 'get' but this shouldn't take more than 30 minutes. Every child has worked very hard and we are very proud of them. It has taken some doing to hide the croissants, biscuits and orange juice from Miss. Cohen laugh but it's all ready to be served on Monday morning so we will see you then!!!

 

The class email address is available if there any last minute questions or problems.

 

Have a great weekend!

 

From Mr. Longworth, Miss. Cohen and Mrs. Devine

Year 6 have been superb with their organisation for a 'Cake for Break' sale on Wednesday and all monies raised will be donated to support families in the Ukraine. All Year 6 staff and indeed all school staff are immsensley proud of the Year 6 children for organising this and they raised a wonderful £242. Well done.  

 

We have been busy with our final practice SATs this week. Children have shown good progress and we are now will plan areas where they are not as confident in, in the summer term. We were very proud with their efforts and children should be proud of themeselves and deserve a rest over the holiday. 

 

Congratulations to Niamh and James, who won the decorate an Easter Egg competition. Their designs were wonderful and creatuve - enjoy your chocolate eggs. 

 

Have a wonderful Easter Break. Hopefully the weather will be lovely so you will be able to get outdoors. We also hope that the Easter Bunny will come and leave you lots of chocolate eggs!

Year 6 Recommended Reading List

 

I have attached below the link for the year 6 recommended reading list where there is a wide range of books appropriate for year 6 that will include the rich vocabulary and year 6 features to help them implement into their writing.

Year 6 Class Curriculum 

 

Please see the curriculum overviews in the relevant term below for details of what we are doing in the curriculum. The weekly spelling words can also be found there. There are ten spellings each week, plus an additional five words from the National Curriculum list of spellings that children are expected to know by the end of Year 6. This full list can be found in the Autumn Term. Please encourage and support your child in learning these words throughout the year.

 

Homework

We would welcome your support with encouraging your child to complete homework and in handing it in at the appropriate time. We will ensure that the children know what the homework is but it will be the children’s responsibility to make sure they take it home at the time it is given and bring it back accordingly. This will help the children become independent learners. 

English: given out on a Wednesday handed in following Tuesday

Maths: given out on a Tuesday handed in following Monday

 

Reading Logs:

It would also be helpful if you can ensure that your child reads each night (minimum of 15 minutes), to build up their fluency and vocabulary. Ensure that they read a variety of fiction and non-fiction and the texts reading will be a challenge. Please make sure your reading records are signed and in school each  Friday to be checked.

 

PE: Our PE lessons are on a Thursday and Friday. On these days children need to come into school wearing their FULL PE Kit. Please ensure you do not wear earings and that long hair is tied back.
