Ms Sassoli, Mrs Tait & Mrs Cole welcome you to
the Year 6 Class of 2020-2021.
Please check back here regularly for news
of what is happening in Year 6 this year.
Mr Nichols joined the Year 6 staff team in October 2020.
Starting on the 19.4.21, PE lessons are on MONDAYS and THURSDAYS.
Please come to school on these days dressed in your PE kit.
Swimming will also start on FRIDAY 14th MAY!
Year 6 ukulele lessons will begin on TUESDAY 27th APRIL when instruments will be handed out.
Please remember to bring your instrument into school each Tuesday for the lesson.
Throughout the autumn term 2020, our Year 6 children achieved a great deal in class with the Year 6 staff, despite the needed Covid-19-safety measures in place, and the confinement to their class bubble.
Some fantastic progress was seen for each individual child
and shared with you in the autumn term reports to parents, virtual class assembly
and via ClassDojo, and in our newsletters.
In the Spring term 2021, we were frustrated that due to the national lockdown, most of our children were required to stay at home again from the 5th January 2021 and carry out remote learning in place of learning on site, but it was great to see the amazing work submitted by our Year 6 children, guided by the videos and tasks put together by Mrs Tait, Ms Sassoli and the team, and thanks to a lot of support from the children's wonderful parents!
The children's learning & development has really been able to continue throughout the 2021 lockdown as a result of all the work put in by school staff and families. The children's ClassDojo portfolios provide wonderful evidence of this. Thank you all.
Our school fully re-opened on 8th March 2021.
It has been so wonderful to have the Year 6 children all back in school again.
We will update our website class pages shortly with overviews for the summer term and details of curriculum information sessions to be run by the staff in April to let you know what is planned for the summer term back in school.

Thanks so much to Mr Harvey for visiting us in class today to help our understanding of the skills and jobs required to produce an online game.
The pupils were thoroughly engrossed; displaying excellent subject knowledge and asking relevant questions.

Thanks so much to Councillor Goldsack for visiting us in class today to talk to us about his role as a local councillor as part of our PSHE topic 'Rules, Rights and Responsibilities'.
It was great to hear how the structures of government, county council and local council work and to recognise the challenges people in these jobs face.

It was good to take some time on this special day of remembrance to visit out local war memorial and pay our respects.
As this linked with our current topic, it brought it closer to home and felt particularly poignant.
