Year 6 2021 - 2022
Year 6 is currently taught by Gill Day ,Kimberley Johnson and Laurence Moule . We will be ably supported throughout the year by Sarah Smith and Alison Hann. PPA time will be covered by Alex King, Mr Lee and Mrs Turner. From January onwards, Mr Griffiths will work with some groups a couple of times a week for “booster lessons” to enable children to be taught in smaller classes in preparation for high school. Mrs Day is Assistant Head for UKS2, Mr Moule is Assessment Co-ordinator and Miss Johnson is EAL and Equalities lead.
Children will make their own way into the Rhodes Building when the doors open at 08:50 a.m. We are aware that some children at this age start to come to school with phones, keys and other valuables from time to time. Phones are not to be used or turned on in the playground or anywhere on the school premises. We ask that phones and all other valuables (e.g. keys and money) are all handed over to the staff member on gate duty first thing in the morning so they can be stored securely during the day. At the end of the day, the children will exit via the same gates. We are aware that in Year 6, some children are starting to make their own way to and from school. We discuss this with the children at the start of the year and ask them to let an adult know during the day if there are changes to their normal routine. Timetabled PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays but there may be lunchtime or after school clubs on other days, requiring PE kit and we would expect your child to be aware of these and have the appropriate clothing. Class homework is usually given out on a Friday, although there may also be additional booster homework. We run a homework club on a Tuesday lunchtime and a lunchtime support and reflection session on a Thursday for children who have not completed their homework. We do expect children to complete homework to the best of their ability and on time as part of their preparation for high school. If you feel that homework causes your child regular problems, please make an appointment with Mrs Day, Miss Johnson or Mr Moule to discuss how we can best support you and your child with this. We will visit the library once a week.
Occasionally, we are offered opportunities to take the children to special events. If we think that these will enhance their learning they will be added in as additional activities and we will give you as much notice as possible that they are taking place.
Every year, Year 6 will have the opportunity to take part in a residential weekend at Robinwood. Outdoor and adventurous activity challenges are part of the national curriculum and so we encourage all children to attend.
In the Summer term, Year 6 will put on a school play. There will also be a barbeque in the last week as well as a trip to the beach.
As we are preparing the children for high school, we expect them to take more responsibility for communicating everyday messages between home and school; however, an adult will be available at the gate in the morning and after school to discuss any other concerns. If you are unable to speak to us in person, all messages sent to the office are passed on to us via email.
