Croeso i Flwyddyn 6!
Welcome to Year 6!
Mrs Bibby and Mrs Mathieson would like to welcome you to the Year 6 information page. We will update this page each term to keep you up to date with topics and important dates for the diary.
This term in English, we will be reading Sky Hawk by Jill Lewis and looking at the issues of friendship and conservation. This links with our Geography topic Mountains and our Science topic Life Cycles in our environment. We will also be continuing with our Entrepreneurship which covers a range of enriched skills across the curriculum.
PE - Summer term
PE kits are black shorts, a round neck white t-shirt and training shoes. For outdoor games and when the weather is cold, the children should wear a tracksuit. Girls, with long hair, need to wear their hair tied back, for safety reasons. Earrings need to be removed or covered up with tape/plaster.
All children in Year 6 take part in running or walking the daily mile. Pupils only need to have their training shoes with them to take part in this activity.
Reading at home
All children are encouraged to read at home, at least 4 times a week. Each Friday, reading records are checked by a teacher and all children achieving 4 reads, signed by an adult, will be rewarded with Merit points.
Please can you encourage your child to bring their reading folder to school on a daily basis in order for us to sign their reading records throughout the week, during Guided reading sessions.
