Welcome to Year 6 Letter 2020-21

Year 6 is the final year at Horbury Primary Academy before the children leave us to go to their chosen high school. During their journey through Year 6, the children will continue to develop their understanding across the school curriculum. However, as well as this, we also place great emphasis on developing confidence and responsibility in our pupils through a wide range of learning experiences, mentoring roles and job responsibilities across the school.

Year 6 Jobs

Throughout the course of Year 6, the children are encouraged to undertake responsibilities around school. This can come in the form of mentoring roles, representative positions and jobs. We aim to rotate job responsibilities every half term so that everyone has the opportunity to experience a job.

Resposibilities:

Head Girl/Boy

School Council Representative

For either of these roles, you will need to prepare a short speech explaining why you would like the role and what qualities you have in order to carry out the role. You will then present your speech to all year 6 for the head girls/boy role and to your class for the school council role.

House Captain

We require you to complete an application form for this role. The form is attached below or ask your teacher on your return to school. If you have already completed the form, please hand in to your class teacher on your return to school.

Y6 House Captains Application 2020-21

We are really please to announce the following:

Head Girl- Caitlin Boyd

Head Boy – Arran Forbes

House Captains

Ash- Esme McTigue and Anya Spurr

Beech – Noah Affleck and Annabel Gray

Elm – Arran and Helena Forbes

Willow- Eva Lunn and Alex Ford

P.E

There are weekly P.E sessions for our children. Therefore, each child should ensure that they have the appropriate kit for these sessions. Due to Covid-19, children will be required to wear their PE kits for the full day on the day of their PE lesson. This will save PE kits being brought into school.

P.E kits

P.E is a statutory subject and all children are required to take part. If your child is suffering from an injury that prevents them from taking part then please contact the school by telephone or by a note passed to the class teacher. Without either of these, your child will be expected to participate in their PE lesson.Thank you.

Medication

Please ensure that if your child requires medication, the school office has been notified and a permission slip has been completed. If your child has an inhaler please ensure that it is in date and that this is passed to the class teacher.

Year 6 Jobs

Throughout the course of Year 6, the children are encouraged to undertake responsibilities around school. This can come in the form of mentoring roles, representative positions and jobs. We aim to rotate job responsibilities every half term so that everyone has the opportunity to experience a job.

P.E

There are weekly P.E sessions for our children. Therefore, each child should ensure that they have the appropriate kit for these sessions. The children need to bring their kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. As the weather warms up, there may be opportunities to take part in additional PE sessions.

P.E kits

P.E is a statutory subject and all children are required to take part. If your child is suffering from an injury that prevents them from taking part then please contact the school by telephone or by a note passed to the class teacher. Thank you.

If your child does not bring their kit or brings the wrong kit then they will be issued with a letter which we ask you to sign and return to school. If your child is unable to do P.E please ensure that they have a note to explain why.

Medication

Please ensure that if your child requires medication, the school office has been notified and a permission slip has been completed. If your child has an inhaler please ensure that this is passed to the class teacher.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
