Welcome to Year 6
This is an exciting year for you all as you enter the last year of Primary. We have lots of great things that we can look forward to and it is a chance for each of you to look to take on new responsibilities and chances.
This year we have Mrs Adams and Mrs Derbidge working in our class and we are all here to help you and support you so if you need any help then please do speak to one of us.
Important Dates For this Year
SATs week will be on Monday 9th May 2022 - these are scheduled to go ahead this year and they run from Monday -Thursday.
ESCOT residential - we have booked this for the week of June 6th going Monday - Friday. More details will be sent home about this in time.
In year 6 it is important that the children get into a good routine of completing their homework and bringing it back in so they are used to it by the time they move onto Secondary school.
In our class we use the CGP books and we have bought each child a maths and grammar book for homework to be completed in. We will set a few pages in each book every Monday and it will be due back in on a Monday. The children are responsible for marking their own work as we go through it on a Monday.
This year, we will also be using Google Classrooms to complete some homework if you are having problems accessing Google Classrooms then please make sure you speak to me so I can help you with this.
If your child is stuck with their homework they can of course discuss it with you and you can provide some help and support or they can come in and speak to either myself or Mrs Adams about it (ideally before the Monday it is due in).
Do you have concerns or worries and you don't know what to do?
It is always good to talk to someone and in school we have people who can listen and talk to you and I know many of you have support at home with parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters or aunts and uncles. There is a new website that has been developed for 8-11 year olds which can offer you some support and advice too. Ollee is a new online chatbot that can help you with concerns or worries and offer you some advice. It covers a whole range of topics about family, friends, school and many more.
Parents - you can also register and it can help you if you are looking for the best advice and support to give your child.
Mrs Waller, our SENCO, has set up a great page for wellbeing with some great links to sites to help explain this situation to children. If you are interested check out our wellbeing page.
