Welcome to the Year 6 Information page
**CHANGES TO PE FOR NEXT TWO WEEKS - Monday 11th October**
Our swimming sessions at Meadowside have finished for this block, so, for the last week of this half-term, and the first week of next, we will no longer be having Games lessons on Monday afternoons. For next week, all Year 6 classes will be doing a blindfold trail on Tuesday (19th October) and an inter-class Netball tournament on Wednesday (20th October). Due to COVID restrictions the children cannot share blindfolds, so we would be grateful if you could send your child in with something appropriate (a scarf for example) to cover their eyes for Tuesday 19th October. Each class will be teaching PE according to their normal timetables (see links to the left) for the first week back after half-term (commencing Tuesday 2nd November). Swimming (and outdoor Games for all on Mondays) will recommence on Monday 8th November.
Meet the Teacher 2021-22 As we sadly cannot currently invite parents to join us in school for our usual Meet the Teacher meeting, we have put together a video version to introduce you to each of the Year 6 teachers and to go through the routines, curriculum and expectations in Year 6, as well as some support which is available to you and your child at home. You can find the video by following this link:
The presentation we used is also available for you to review in the links to the left here.
SWIMMING TIMETABLES On swimming weeks, our timetables will be altered as we take our weaker swimmers for lessons at Meadowside on a Monday afternoon. Those who are not swimming will be having a full afternoon of Outdoor Games. They will not be having PE on any other days of the week during this period so only need their kit on Mondays. This timetable will recommence in the second week back after half-term (week commencing 8th November).
Dear children and parents,
Welcome back to school for the start of our 2021-22 year; we're all really excited to welcome the children back for a (fingers crossed!) more normal school experience than we've been able to offer over the last year or so. You can find class timetables, knowledge mats for this term's topics and a list of recommended reads for Year 6 in the links at the side of this page. These timetables may be subject to change as we review our scheduling now that restrictions have been eased. Similarly, trips and outdoor education are still being organised and we will let you know dates when these are confirmed.
The Autumn term is usually a real mix of sun and showers, so we would encourage you to send children with a waterproof coat every day and with a sun hat and sun cream (already applied) when the weather is looking good. You'll find your children's PE days on their class timetables - please help them to remember to bring their kit with them and make sure that they are able to remove any earrings or other jewellery themselves as they won't be able to take part fully unless they can do so.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us on the email addresses below.
