Year 6 2021 - 2022
“We Share, We Value, We Respect”
I would like to wish you and your children a very warm welcome back to school. It is a shame that we did not get to part properly at the end of Year 5, but I am really pleased that I get to see familiar faces again this September.
I do hope you and your families enjoyed the summer break and are looking forward to what should be a magnificent final year at St. Mary’s for your child. Year 6 is an exciting and important year and Mr. Hewson and I aim to ensure it is memorable and successful experience.
As you will be aware, reading is a vital element of the primary curriculum and it is the school’s aim to promote a love of books and literature. With that in mind, time each week will be dedicated to reading for pleasure. Therefore, children are welcome and encouraged to bring a book in from home or to borrow one from the school library (that will stay in school until it is finished) to read purely for pleasure. This will be in addition to school reading books. As a result of this, reading folders are allowed in Year 6 however, items brought to school must be an absolute minimum. So children should only bring a reading book and folder, water bottle, packed lunch (if on packed lunches) and PE kit brought and left on the school premises.
Online maths homework will be allocated on a Monday every week apart from the week before a holiday. The homework needs to be completed and handed in by the following Monday. Your child will receive weekly spellings, which are sent out with a learning plan at the beginning of each half term. These will be tested each Friday. Additionally, each half term children will be given a project to complete.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to contact me via the school office and I will contact you as soon as possible.
Although COVID precautions are being eased nationally, and you will no doubt be aware government guidance states that a full class will now not need to isolate if ONE pupil tests positive for Covid-19. However, should multiple cases within a given period arise, Public Health will advise on any subsequent actions. These actions will be forwarded to you.
Therefore please be reassured that all measures in place are to ensure the least possible disruption to your child’s education.
As ever, we thank you for your understanding and support with this.
