Year 6

Being in Year Six comes with a lot of responsibility; the children are expected to be role models and ambassadors for the school.  Year Six pupils are the children that the rest of the school look up to and the students that define our school vision and values.  As such, we expect exemplary behaviour from all the children in Year Six at all times during the day.

Although there is a lot of hard work in Year Six, there are lots of things to look forward to as well, including:

 

  • The residential trip to PGL (learn more about this by clicking on the Residential Trip page in the Year Six area).
  • The end of year production
  • And (most importantly) sitting on the benches during assembly!

 

 

Remember to keep up-to-date by checking the sections below regularly!


I can't believe we are already into our final term of year 6, but it will be a busy one.  We have our fantastic production, PGL, Young Enterprise and our end of term treat to look forward to!

Homework

This term the most important homework is to lines and song words for our production.  Please help your child with this, especially if they have a main part in the play.  We expect all children to know the song words and to read through the script, as they will all be on stage at some point.

 

Reading

The year 6 reading challenges are still taking place, so encourage your children to read as much as possible and bring in their books and challenge sheets on Mondays.

Year 6 Production

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

 

 

 

The Year Six production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is fast approaching.  Children have been rehearsing and the stage is up in the hall.  Please support your child in learning their script lines and song lyrics at home.  Most children have planned their costumes and their outfits are nearly ready for the outing.  However, if you would like any advice about the costume your child needs to wear then please speak to a member of the Year Six Team.  Please note, costumes must be ready and in school by Wednesday 5th July at the latest.

 

This year’s performances will take place on the following dates:

 

Tuesday 11th July, 1.30 – 3.15pm to EYFS, Key Stage 1 and VIPs.

 

Wednesday 12th July, 1.30 – 3.15pm to Key Stage 2 and VIPs.

 

Thursday 13th July, 6.00 – 8.00pm to parents.

 

Friday 14th July, 6.00 – 8.00pm to parents.

 

Please ensure that children are committed to these dates and times. Please let your child’s class teacher know as soon as possible if there is a pre-standing commitment that will affect their attendance.

 

Please indicate on the reply slip below which performance you wish to attend.  To ensure all children have the opportunity for family to attend, we are limiting tickets to two per family for each performance. Once we know how many tickets are needed, we can offer out any extra seats, if required.  Please return reply slips to Mrs Doe, Miss Wilce or Miss Beard.

 

Please note, for the evening performances, children must be dropped back at school at 5.30pm in order for them to change into their costumes and be ready for the start of the performance.  Doors to the Main Hall will open for the audience at 5.50pm.

 

We are looking forward to a ‘scrumdiddlyumptiously’ good show!

Young Enterprise

Our amazing year 6 students have been busy planning and researching their young enterprise projects. They have been learning about profit & loss, branding, marketing and working as a team in order to raise money at the summer fete. Any profits will go towards their leaver's day out in July. Maybe we'll discover the next Lord Sugar!



News:

Future Technology Week

Year 6 students opened Future Technology Week with a morning of drone flying (or crashing in Mr Houldsworth's case!). We looked at setting up the drones, calibrating the controls, flying and repairing. We have definitely got some future helicopter pilots amongst us!
