Welcome back, Year 6!
We are so excited to have you all back to school, safe and well and can’t wait to start working on the lovely activities and learning that we have got planned. Without your lovely, happy faces and cheerful chatter, school has been a miserable, quiet place – but not for long, we hope!
To begin with, we will be focusing on getting to know each other and finding out if anything has changed in your lives since we last saw you. Even though it’s year 6, there will be no testing or too much hard work – to begin with. We just want you all to feel secure being back in school.
In our English lessons this half term, we will be reading a book written by Barack Obama and exploring his encouraging words. In maths, we need to find out what you can remember so will begin by exploring place value. Science for the full half term will be learning about eyes and light so that you will be able to describe how we see – and it’s not because of eating carrots! In our theme, we will be learning all about World War II and how the Merseyside area (particularly near the docks) was affected. You will have music/French with Mrs Grice on a Thursday afternoon; Thursday will also be your PE day. For PE, we would like you to come in your PE kits: navy or black shorts/tracksuit bottoms/leggings, especially when it gets cooler, white T-shirt with a dark jumper or sweatshirt over the top. No football kits, please! In The Way, the Truth and the Life, we will be learning about The Kingdom of God and what it means to us.
This first half term will be quite unusual and, at times, may feel a little strange. However, we are all in this together and will have lots of fun learning!
Lots of love, Miss McKenna, Mrs Stanley and Mrs Mole xxx
