As always, the coming weeks in Year 6 will be packed full of events, trips and activities for the pupils to complete and enjoy.
We have been working extremely hard on our English and Maths work, building up towards SATs week, which is from Monday 8th May until Thursday 12th May. Once the SATs exams are complete, we can turn our attentions to the end of year production, specifically working on our singing, dancing and acting skills in recreating a Broadway-standard play for parents and carers!
This term will be particularly important for pupils to begin the transition into high school. With this in mind, visits will be arranged to Ashton-On-Mersey High School, as well as with other high schools, and work will be completed in order to ease any worries that pupils may have prior to starting in September.
If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact me.

With the SAT's tests approaching in May, work in Maths and English will be geared towards pushing the children's ability to the next level and giving them a chance to show how creative they can be! To make this possible it is essential that pupils maintain excellent attendance throughout this term.
It is particularly important that the children continue reading regularly at home to help with their understanding of writing and continue to consolidate basic numeracy skills.
This term's topic will focus on our city of Manchester! We will look at how Manchester has developed through the centuries, how important this is and what exactly makes our city great and unique.
Thanks for your continued support.

As the oldest children at the Firs Primary, this is an important year for the pupils and I hope they all enjoy their last year at the Firs and work hard in achieving their potential.
This term we will be focusing on the Victorian period and what life was like living in Victorian England. There are many interesting facts to discover and learn about and children will be asked to engage in personal research projects later in the term, such as: child workers, technological advancements or crime and punishment!
With this being the children's last year in primary school, it is important they build on solid foundations from previous years and work hard to help prepare themselves for life at high school. It will be extremely helpful if you are able to continue to support your child at home by continually monitoring reading and progress with any home learning tasks, such as spelling.
I will be in contact with any specific dates and details of any up and coming events but please do not hesitate to come in and talk to me about anything relating to school life.
