I hope everyone had a great Easter feasting on some sweet treats and now, as always, are ready to work hard this term and continue to use a ‘can do’ attitude to reach our potential and enjoy our learning!
With the SAT's tests cancelled due to the impact Covid has had on our learning so far, it gives us more time to be able to cover the curriculum till the end of the year and catch up on any maths and English work we have been unable to complete so far.
This term will be particularly important for pupils to begin the transition into high school. With this in mind, visits will be arranged with high schools, and work will be completed in order to ease any worries that pupils may have prior to starting in September. I will attach our newsletter which will contain full details of this term’s objectives, but our highlights include:
It is particularly important that the children continue reading regularly at home to help their understanding of writing and comprehension whilst trying their best with homework in order to consolidate their grammar and maths learning from the week. All pupils have their own individual passwords for Mathletics and Timestable Rockstars. Any extra practise will obviously help their maths knowledge!
We’d all like to welcome Mrs. Morgan to the Year 6 teaching team as she will be working closely in Year 6KP’s class on Thursday’s and Friday’s, as well as Mr. Blake now taking a lead teaching role in Year 6JN’s class Monday-Thursday whilst Mrs. Nolan starts her maternity!
If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact me directly through email: firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search #Year6KP to keep track of all our messages, fun activities and work we produce each week!
Thanks for your continued support.

FRIDAY 23rd OCTOBER
It's the final day of the week! Hope you enjoy today's learning. Well done for all the fantastic work you have done at home. It has been great to hear that so many of you have been working your way through the tasks and growing your brains along the way. We are all proud of you. Have a lovely half-term holiday and see you all on Monday 2nd November.
THURSDAY 22nd OCTOBER
We hope that you have found the tasks straight-forward to follow and that you have continued growing your brains from home! It has been lovely to receive the work you have been completing over the past 2 days. Keep it up Year 6!
WEDNESDAY 21st OCTOBER
Happy Wednesday everyone! Today will be day 1 of guided reading sessions over Zoom with Mrs Gilbert or Mr Blake. We hope you all have an enjoyable day challenging yourselves with the work we have set!
TUESDAY 20th OCTOBER
It's day 1 of working from home. I hope you are all ready to challenge yourselves with today's work and grow your brains!
Hi Year 6!
We hope all pupils and their families are all well and healthy during this challenging time and we would all much rather see everyone’s cheery faces in school rather than being at home. It is important to know that during this period of closure it is vital that all children’s brains continue to grow and that the routine and structure of school continues at home as best as possible. Both Year 6 classes have made an enthusiastic start to Year 6 and we hope that the work we have prepared for this time at home is exciting and rewarding to complete!
Zoom meetings will be arranged in the week and each child will receive details for a Guided Reading session with Mrs Gilbert or Mr Blake in a small group; as well as a separate well-being related zoom call with Mr Pasdari or Mrs Nolan. Any wobbles with work can be mentioned here and class teachers will ensure concepts are fully explained.
There is a suggested timetable for the next few days that will closely resemble a standard school day and will include starter tasks, maths, English, breathing exercises and various topic work that will all be part of the Year 6 curriculum. Slides, videos and work will be posted each day. As well as this work, there are also various tasks to complete on the ‘Distance learning’ section of the school website which will also challenge children’s knowledge across the curriculum.
In addition, as a school we have invested in a number of online learning platforms across the curriculum to help keep our student's brains engaged. All children have access to Bug club, Mathletics and Times Tables Rock Stars (at the back of their reading records). If you do not have a login or experience any difficulties using these please email us for assistance.
Any work completed that can be emailed can be sent directly to either:
We look forward seeing you again soon. Enjoy your time with your family and stay safe!
Mr Pasdari, Mrs Nolan, Mrs Gilbert and Mr Blake
