Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

 

Miss Lynch is Year Six's class teacher and Mrs Kaur is our teaching assistant. We are also supported by Mr Barr and our resource base teacher, Miss Paulson, and our resource base teaching assistant, Miss Leddy.

 

As a team, we are excited about a busy year ahead and look forward to building a working partnership between staff, pupils, parents and carers to maximise children's learning.

 

This term our theme is 'Crime and Punishment' with a particular focus on History. We will be using the old school log books to investigate the punishments which were given at school and the reasons for them. 

 

P.E. 

We have P.E. on a Tuesday and Friday so please help your child to be fully prepared for this lesson by having their kit in school.

Y6 Have been to the cinema at Resorts World to watch a film about Global Warming. For some of us it was our first time watching a 3D movie, we had fun trying to reach out to the wonderful creatures of the deep.It left us feeling emotional, knowing that these creatures are at risk of extinction if we do not change our ways.

Year 6 have been really excited today about their new class story book that has been revealed. The story 'The Middler' by Author Kirsty Applebaum is about a girl called Maggie who is a middle child overlooked and unheard.
