Year 6 EASTER BREAK.
Hi! I hope you are all well and are getting used to being at home for learning. I have a very important message for the next two weeks- enjoy your Easter break! You do have the homework packs I gave you before the school shut so please dip into these but spread it out so you can have a nice relaxing time too. It has been a very strange time for everyone, including your lovely parents, so choose to spend some quality time together as a family. Play games, get outside in the fresh air (from a safe distance from others), read books together, watch films, help with chores and cook. Enjoy some Easter cooking or eating your Easter eggs. I’ve added some links to Easter anagrams, word searches, craft and recipes but these are NOT supposed to be work. Do them if you want to or leave them! It is up to you (or your parents if they want you occupied for a little while!). My only rule is: have some fun and family time!
I really hope I’ll get to see you all soon but in the space between stay safe, healthy and happy. I will update our class page after the Easter Break with some more learning for you to do. Take care, Mrs R! xx
P.S. Do you like my unicorn headband?!
HOME SCHOOL LEARNING PAGE.
Week 2- 30/03/2020
Hello, in this time of change we are doing our best to help you and your children learn as much as possible. Home learning will be different for each child/ family so we are not setting strict time guides but giving you lots of options of work (computer based and non-screen) to complete over the period away from school. This will be updated EACH MONDAY so please keep looking at what new suggestions, weblinks or tasks we have added as the school closure continues.
Year 6- On a personal note I just want to thank all of you for being so brilliant (Great, Fantastic, Brilliant!) during this time. I am so proud of each and every one of you for all you have achieved so far, keep learning and stay active (Dance to Footloose/ Stronger in your lounge to cheer you up! I will be!). Hopefully I'll see you all as soon as we can. Keep smiling! Mrs R xx

Upper Keystage 2 - Year 6
The children in our Year 6 class are taught a wide variety of subjects and topics from the National Curriculum. They are assessed using Milestone 3 which assesses their understanding of the topics taught. Throughout upper key stage 2 they will be assessed using a basic, advancing or deep understanding of their learning, using the milestone criteria.
Year 6 pupils will also be formally assessed in May with their end of key stage- Secondary ready tests. They will be assessed by the teacher using the interim standards provided by the government.
What subjects do we cover?
• English: Writing, Reading and Communication
• Mathematics: To know and use numbers, Multiplication and division, fractions, properties of shape, position, direction and movement, measures, statistics and algebra
• Science: working scientifically, biology, chemistry and physics
• Art and Design Technology
• Physical Education
• Religious Education
• Personal development and Citizenship, including our school Christian values
• MFL- French
Although subjects are considered discrete we teach as much of the curriculum as possible through themes and topics throughout the year.
We focus on our school Christian values throughout Year 5 and 6 and develop the children’s roles within school through giving them jobs to do, rewarding Year 6 children with Values stripes for their achievements and developing restorative leading skills.
This is our school. With God’s help we care for one another, are curious in our learning, and know we are all loved.
Luke 10:27 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'
Love Learn Grow
