Year 6 Spring newsletter
May we start by wishing you all a happy New Year. I hope you had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas break! On behalf of the Year 6 Team, we would like to thank you for your generous presents, cards and well wishes; it was very thoughtful and greatly appreciated.
Looking ahead, we have another exciting topic this term: Our World. It will concentrate on map work, physical features, landmarks, cultures and climates. This is in line with the new Geography and English National Curriculum. It will also include cross-curricular subject matter in RE, Art and History.
Please can we remind parents that during the cold weather children should come in to school with jumpers or cardigans and a coat! If it is too cold and they do not have jumpers and coats children will not be allowed outside – this is for their own welfare. They must also wear a white shirt and school tie as per school expectations.
PE kits, which should include black shorts for indoors and tracksuit trousers (if you would like) for outdoor lessons, must be brought in to school every Monday and taken home on Fridays to be washed. Children without a PE kit will be set work during this time and will receive a reminder in their reading record books. Earrings must be removed before PE. Our usual Tuesday PE session has been moved to a Monday this half term.
I would like to take this opportunity to make you aware that there have been many incidents involving the use of social media and Whatsapp on phones during evenings and weekends. There have been some unkind messages and use of inappropriate language which has become a distraction in the classroom. Please could I ask you to monitor the use of these apps to ensure the children are focused for this important school year.
Thank you all for your continued support and, as always, please get in contact with us if there is anything you would like to discuss about your child’s progress or their learning.
I hope you have all had a lovely summer!
We are looking forward to a great year working together. Please continue to keep an eye on our class page, which will be regularly updated with our activities and progress. If you have any questions, at any time, please do not hesitate to ask for me.
