Welcome back after the Summer holidays and welcome to Year 6!
We hope that you have all had a safe and rewarding time with your families during the summer break; we are really looking forward to returning as we have missed you all! We realise that the last year will have been different for everyone and want to reassure you that we will be doing our best to make your time back at Firs as safe and familiar as possible. Miss Turner and Mr. Leigh have made thorough checks and changes to the school in order to make it as safe a learning environment as possible for us all whilst still being able to experience ‘normal’ school life as we remember it with the return of assemblies in the hall and some exciting after-school clubs! We understand that it continues to be a challenging time for children and grown-ups and the well-being of our children is particularly important to us. For the first few weeks of getting used to the changes around school, we will also be spending time talking about our feelings with our aim of children overcoming any wobbles we have over returning to school and to instil a positive mindset to the year ahead!
This will be the final year our Year 6 pupils will be with us and we aim to ensure that all the children continue to achieve their potential in Year 6 through growing their brains, making beautiful oopses and seeing wobbles as a positive way to learn from. As the oldest children at the Firs Primary, this is an important year for them and I hope they all enjoy the year and work hard in achieving their potential to become strong independent learners. Remember... practise makes MORE perfect!
This term we are 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!
It is important they build on solid foundations from previous years and work hard to help prepare 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. Additional Bug club (reading) and Mathletics (maths) passwords will be provided to each child in the back of their Reading Records.
Our weekly routine will be...
Wednesday- Homework books handed in with completed homework tasks.
Wednesday- Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits (yellow t-shirts, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms during the Winter months and trainers or black pumps). Regular school uniform is not required on this day.
Friday- Reading Records handed in. Children will also receive their homework on Fridays with tasks to be completed at home.
If there are any changes to the weekly routine or there are any issues arise, please let us know!
Make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search @Year6BM/SB to keep track on all the fun activites and interesting work we produce each week!
We will be in contact with any specific dates and details of any up and coming events but please do not hesitate to contact us about anything relating to school life.
Mrs. Gilbert has used her expertise in all things well being and yoga and has created an extremely helpful video for us that will help us develop some breathing exercises that will help calm us and clear our thoughts when we may be finding it difficult to relax. The exercises are easy to do and can be done anywhere in the house on your own or even with your family. It won't take long! I am sure you will make great use of the video and thank you Mrs. Gilbert for creating it all :)
