Year 6 – Aquamarine
The children have had a fantastic start to Year 6 and we look forward to learning about more exciting things during Cycle 2.
In Year 6, the uniform consists of the school’s blazer, jumper, tie, a white shirt, black trousers or skirt and black school shoes. Please ensure that your child wears the correct uniform each day for school and that their name is clearly labelled on each of the items.
For P.E., pupils are required to wear a white t-shirt, black shirts and black pumps or black trainers.
Maths and Spelling homework will continue to be given out every Friday and should be completed and handed back to the Year 6 teachers by the following Wednesday. Pupils will be provided with a weekly spelling list which they are required to learn by end of the week, in preparation for a spelling test every Friday.
The children will continue to have the opportunity to select a reading book from the class library, which they are then required to read to you each night for approximately 15-20 minutes. Just a reminder to please sign your child’s diary each evening to confirm that you have listened to them read.
Pupils are expected to demonstrate exemplary behaviour and act as role models for the rest of the school. Dojo points will be awarded to pupils for behaviour which demonstrates the school’s values of ‘Learn, Respect and Succeed’. Should pupils earn 35 Dojo points by the end of the week, they will be rewarded with Dojo Treat on a Friday afternoon.
P.E. and Swimming
Your children will have P.E. on a Wednesday, in addition to swimming lessons on a Thursday during the Autumn Term. This year, we have sports coaches who are coming into the school to teach the children a variety of new skills during P.E. lessons! Please ensure that your child has their full P.E. kit with them for these lessons. For swimming, the children will need to bring a swimming costume or swimming trunks, along with a towel and swimming cap to keep their hair dry.
