6SW 2020 - 2021
To parents/carers and children, I hope you are well.
Due to a confirmed Covid-19 in year 6, for the next two weeks, we will be learning online via Microsoft Teams. We will make sure that you don't miss anything and will still have the chance to see your friends through the video calls.
Each day, I will sets timetable of lessons and tasks for you to complete throughout the day. These tasks will need to be submitted on teams by the end of each day. I will go through the tasks on our video calls and this will be the chance for you to ask any questions if you are unsure about what to do. In order to get your attendance mark, it is compulsory that you join both calls. The first call will be at 10am and the second one at 1pm.
Your log in details for teams have not changed so you can use the same email address and password. Please contact school if you have any issues logging on. You will have been added to a new class, ready for us to start our lessons tomorrow.
The first call will start tomorrow (Wednesday 7th October) at 10am. Please bring a pen/pencil and something to write on in case you need to do any working out or make any notes.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow,
all the best,
Welcome back year 6! We are really excited to see you all and to get started on our new adventure – your last year at Newall Green.
We hope that you have had a lovely summer break and that you are ready and raring to go.
Here is some information for you all to read before you come back to school.
When you come to school on Thursday 3rd September, you will need to come with an adult to the year 6 gate (Peace Garden gate). We will be waiting there for you to let you in after a quick temperature check. Your adult needs to stay with you whilst this is done so that we can make sure that you are fit and well to start the day.
You need to be in your normal school uniform and if you have a packed lunch, please make sure that it is disposable if possible. You just need to bring yourselves (and maybe a packed lunch). Please don’t bring any personal items from home such as; pencil cases, toys, books etc.
We will explain everything to you and help you through your first day when we are all together.
From next week (7.9.20), we will be starting PE and outdoor learning on a weekly basis. You will need to come in your full PE kit on the day that you do PE (no football kits and needs to be suitable for outdoor PE). On a Friday, you will need to come to school in clothes appropriate for outdoor learning – these need to be old clothes which are suitable for all weathers – please do not wear anything that you do not want to get muddy.
PE for 6SW and 6AC will be on a Wednesday. PE for 6TW will be on a Tuesday.
Monday – full uniform
Tuesday – 6SW and 6AC full uniform.
6TW PE kit
Wednesday – 6TW full uniform
6AC and 6SW PE kit
Thursday – full uniform
Friday – All classes outdoor learning clothes.
When we first come back to school, we will be doing lots of transition activities and PSHE (Personal, social and health education). We will also be starting our new topics which are:
History: Victoria and key Victorians
Geography: climate change, biodiversity and plastic pollution.
Art: painting, sculpting and creating flowers.
Science: fungi, bacteria and leaves.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest.
Spellings will also be given out on a Friday and the spelling test will be on the following Friday.
You will be given a reading book which you need to take home with you and read every night and then bring back to school every day. You will need to have your planner/diary signed to show that you have been reading each night. Your planner/diary also needs to be brought into school every day.
We will soon be starting an after-school homework club in each class – more information will be given about this soon.
We can't wait to see you tomorrow.
All the best,
The year 6 team.
