6TW 2020 - 2021
Dear parents and carers of 6TW,
Staring this week, Literacy, Numeracy and Spelling homework will be sent out on Friday's as previously mentioned on our class page. If you have any objection to homework being sent home in books as you would prefer to not have items from school in your home then please let me know before Friday and I will do my best to make sure these are not sent. The alternative, if you are not happy for homework books to come home, is that you would access each week's homework on our class page on the school website, this can then be printed at home, completed and returned to school by Tuesday morning at the latest. All children are still required to complete their homework and bring it back to school on time. If anyone does not complete their homework on time then they will recieve a breaktime detention to complete the missed work.
Also, starting from next Thursday, I will be running an afterschool group for any children who wish to join, in this session we will work on areas that your child might struggle with, some things that were missed from the Year 5 curriculum due to lockdown and other tasks that will aim to enhance your child's learning. This session will run from 3pm - 4pm and will cover a range of subjects depending on need. Please let me know as soon as possible if you wish for your child to join this group.
Finally, your children have made a wonderful start to their time in Year 6 and have already showed me that they are ready to take on the challenges of this year! They are working exceptionally hard and are an incredible group who already make me incredibly proud to be their teacher!
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.
