The heart of education is education of the heart

Year 6

 

 

Welcome back Year 6 to 2018!

The year you leave Primary and begin high school!

This promises to be an action packed and productive term. The central topic for Spring is mining in Featherstone during Victorian times. We'll be visiting the mining museum and learning about life as a miner. Children will be encouraged to research independently and find out some interesting facts, which we'll add to our interactive world map display. 

 

Below is a link to one of the popular maths games 'Hit the Button!'

Year 6 will continue to have PE on a Monday and Wednesday.

All children will be expected to bring full PE kit to each session.

 

Our classroom doors are always open for parents who need to discuss any problems or concerns they have regarding  or any other matters.

 

The Year 6 teachers are Mrs J Palit (6JP), Mr S Bland (6SB), Miss E Garbett (6EG) & Mr Harris. Our wonderful classroom assistants are Mrs A Fisher and Miss N Gregg. 

To help the children become more independent they have all been given a Homework Diary. The purpose of this is to organise messages, track reading at home and helps teachers communicate with parents individually (if needed).
