Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is a very special year, filled with special responsibilities, a residential trip and many exciting ways to develop and nurture confidence (like the school play and talent show). It is a stepping stone to secondary school and we structure our curriculum and homework schedule to prepare our pupils for the demands of the changes which lay ahead. Of course, we are unsure of the future but we are hoping that many of the traditions of Year 6 will be able to take place this year.
The Recovery Curriculum, written by Barry Carpenter, has shaped our planning for the first term and a list of the key concepts are below:
Below is information for Term 1 whilst current restrictions are in place.
Owls - Mondays
Leopards - Wednesdays
Children should wear their games kits to school, including trainers, on these days as lessons will take place outside for Term 1. Earrings should not be worn on PE days.
Owls - Tuesdays
Leopards - Fridays
Children will need to come to school in old clothes suitable for Forest School on this day. We will be going out in all weathers, so please make sure they have a waterproof jacket if it is raining. Wellies would be useful to change into before the session if it is damp/wet.
Selina, our play therapist will be delivering a 'Think. Feel. Behave. workshop to the class on Monday 7th (1:30- 2:30) so there won't be PE on this day for Owls.
Here are the Challenges set for Kingswood week (w/c 1st June) in case you haven't got around to doing them yet:
