Welcome to Year 6 Letter 2020-21

We are heading into our last term of Year 6 before the children leave us to go to their chosen high school. During this last term, we have got lots of fun things planned for the children to take part in.  Watch this space for some of these events!

Coming up after the holidays

In Science after the holidays we will be examining a range of topics including Living Things and their Habitats and Electricity.  Within our Electricity topic, we will be designing and building fairground rides!

In R.E after the holidays we will be making connections between beliefs and behaviours in different religions.

In Geography, we will be learning about Mountains and the Mountain ranges in the UK.

We love reading in Year 6! During the week, there are many opportunities for the children to take part in reading.  We read during Guided Reading sessions, ERT (Everyone Reads Together), curriculum lessons and our class novel.  ERT is a time when all of the children have the opportunity to sit and enjoy reading their books.

If your child has a book that they are reading at home, this may be brought into school.  The children have the opportunity to select books from the school and the class libraries and take them home. Please check that your child is coming home with their reading book and reading it. The children will be taking part in one to one reading with their class teachers. Please ensure that your child brings their reading book back to school each day as they may be asked to read with their class teacher or Miss Huntington or Mrs Wilson.

Responsibilities:

Head Girl- Caitlin Boyd

Head Boy – Arran Forbes

House Captains

Ash– Esme McTigue and Anya Spurr

Beech – Noah Affleck, Noah Conolly and Annabel Gray

Elm – Arran and Helena Forbes

Willow– Eva Lunn and Alex Ford

P.E

In Summer 1, Year 6 will be having their weekly PE sessions on a Thursday and Friday.  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.
