'Chemistry with Cabbage' Science Day 

Year 6 had a fantastic session with Ruth from 'Chemistry with Cabbage', learning all about electricity and electrical circuits. Ruth was very impressed with their scientific knowledge, particularly about the dangers of electricity and how to stay safe. During Big Write, they produced some super reports, which recounted the events of the day and what they had learnt. Thank you to Ruth for coming in and for sharing all your knowledge! 

Class Assembly

Many thanks to the visitors who came to see the recent class assembly. The children were all amazing and they had lots of compliments about their speaking and singing. The message of the assembly was 'Do Something!' and this will be a focus for Year 6 throughout the year as they complete the Pin Level of the 'Faith in Action Award.'

Welcome to Year 6!

The powerpoint for the recent 'Welcome to Year 6' parent meeting can be found in the files. Please do not hesitate to contact me through the school office if you have any questions or concerns. Miss Hammond

General Information 2019 - 2020 

The curriculum

Curriculum details for all year groups can be found on our website.

We are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum for all our children.

Year 6 Creative Arts -  Sessions with Mr Wilkinson will begin after Christmas.

P.E. kits need to be in school on a Monday, ready for the week ahead.

CHILDREN WHO ARE SWIMMING will need their swiiming kit on a Thursday.

Uniform

The school uniform shows that pupils belong to our school community and should be worn with pride. School Uniform is a requirement for being part of our school and is compulsory for all pupils.

Details of the uniform policy for KS2 children can be downloaded below. Please note that ear-rings and nail-varnish are not allowed and any hair accessories should be in school colours.

ALL the uniform worn by the children MUST have their name clearly marked on each item, using either a permanent marker OR printed name labels.

The reasons that we ask for everything to be labelled are:

  • It helps your child to feel more secure in finding and looking after their own belongings
  • It helps staff to get any items that may be lost back to their owners

Any unclaimed or unnamed items are placed in the outside container (on the playground) for Lost Property.

Equipment

During the first week your child was given  

A clear pencil case containing:

  • A pencil
  • A ruler
  • An eraser
  • A glue stick
  • A whiteboard pen
  • A blue school handwriting pen.

Pens that have run out and pencils that are too small to use will be exchanged by the class teacher.

  • A diary for home/school communication
  • A plastic zip wallet which they should use to keep their homework, letters, diary etc safe.

Colouring pencils, felt tips etc will be provided by the class teacher when appropriate.

  • Your child will be expected to have all their equipment in school, every day.
  • Children should not bring additional equipment to school.
  • If your child misplaces/damages their equipment they will be expected to purchase replacements from the school stationery shop.

Homework

The homework expectations for a KS2 child can be downloaded below.

Maths homework will be given out during the week and should be returned by the following Monday.

Spag homework will be given out on a Thursday and should be returned by the following Thursday.

Your child will also be given KIRFs and spellings to learn every half term. Children will be guided in their spelling session and tested weekly as appropriate.  

Your child should be reading for at least 15 minutes each evening. You can support them by reading with them or asking them questions about what they are reading.

Later in the term, a Learning Journey will be given to your child for them to complete over an allocated time.

Residential Trips

This year's residential is for Year 6 who will be visiting the Ullswater Outward Bound Centre in February. Further details will follow shortly.

If you, or your child, have any worries regarding the trip itself or the cost of the trip, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Weir who will try to support as much as possible.

EBNOC

EBNOC is now open from 7.30 a.m. and is offering breakfast. Watch out for information for all the activities that the staff are planning to provide both before and after school and during the school holidays.

Water Bottles

Drinking water regularly helps children to concentrate and increases their ability to learn. Please remind your children to bring a named water bottle to school each day.

Questions or concerns

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment time for after school.

We are always happy to see you!

Miss Hammond and Senora Roberts
