Year 6

Welcome to Year Six.

Your teachers are: Miss Crofton, Mrs French, Mrs Venables, Miss Collier and Mrs Stephens. We are supported by Mrs Sharp.

Year Six during their final St Thomas' Sports Day. 

During Science Day, Year 6 pupils chose an area of Science to present and create a game to test knowledge. For our Foundation Week, we had a Shakespeare day, where we learnt the story of The Tempest. We created spells and poems inspired by the magic in the story. We then acted out our scenes. We also had a Common Good Day, we learnt about the Pope's Laudato Si and thought about the messages for us. We created Global Citizen posters to illustrate our understanding. This week, we also celebrated our Leavers' mass. It was a lovely service and a great way to reflect on our time at St Thomas' before we move on. We also completed our Geography map work by doing some field work. This involved going for a walk, following a map, thinking about direction and marking on road names and landmarks. We used the symbols we had learnt to complete our maps. 

Stubbers - June 2021: Abseiling, Climbing, Leap of Faith, High Ropes, Kayak, Bell Boat, Paddleboard, Caving, Archery, Bushcraft, Raft Building, Laser Tag, Orienteering... lots and lots of fun!

Our Learning this week - 12.7.21

This week, we will concentrate on foundation subjects with a focus on Geography, RE, PSHE and DT. 

We will consolidate our map skills by going out to complete some field work in Grays. We will create a map with symbols, direction and grid references. We will continue our Common Good work with the Pope's Laudato Si letter and think about what we can do help. We will continue to explore Greek Myths and create a maze inspired by Theseus. We will also continue to learn more about Shakespeare and consolidate our understanding of measures in Maths. 


Children In Need - Emotional Wellbeing Support

In Year Six we will usually set homework every Friday and expect it submitted by the following Friday. We know that reading is important to support your child's imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for up to 15 minutes each evening for up to 5 evenings per week will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. Children can choose a school reading book, a library book, or a book from home. Please ensure that your child reads independently and records their opinions about the book. It is also important that children get the opportunity to discuss their reading with an adult regularly, this will aid their reading comprehension skills. Of course it will still benefit Year Six children to read aloud to an adult at home. 

Many thanks,

The Year Six Team.
