Enjoy, Exceed, Excel
Welcome to the Year 6 website! We have kicked off the year by discussing what an honour it is to be at the top of the school and having so many young people looking up to us. This led us on to brainstorming how to enhance our 'legacy' that we will leave behind, both as an individual and as a year group team. This is based on a book I recently read called 'Legacy' about the All Blacks rugby team in New Zealand.
We are having a big push to make sure that we represent ourselves the best we can by: living the values; taking pride in our uniform; grasping all opportunities that come our way; and being the best that we can be. We are even 'sweeping the sheds' just like the All Blacks do at the end of every game "because no one should clean up after an All Black". Do feel free to continue this at home!!
The video below will give you a little more insight into this Legacy that we are aiming to achieve.
Pride Rock information
For evening performances on Tuesday and Wednesday, we will need children to come back to school between 5:15pm and 5:30pm from the Year 6 ramp in order to get dressed and made up for the shows.
The performance will last approximately one hour. The children will need to get changed afterwards, so I would expect to pick them up from 7:15-7:30pm on Tuesday from the bottom of the Y6 ramp (You can remind them that the sooner they change, the sooner they get home!)
On Wednesday, there is a disco lasting until 8pm, when they can be collected from the doors in the KS2 hall that lead onto the car park. You are more than welcome to stay after this performance to enjoy nibbles and beverages on the field for voluntary donations.
Please sign up to pay for DVDs on the night - we will use ParentPay as opposed to cash for this. You will receive your DVD when you have paid online.
There will be things to buy for children, or yourselves, on the night such as 20p animal hats and 20p face paint so please have some coins for this to speed the process up as we won't have much change.
All merchandise such as keyrings, firdge magnets and tea towels will be sent home with your child on Friday.
Most of all, enjoy this entirely child-led production! They've worked so hard designing tickets, programmes, writing letters, managing money on spreadsheets, using our Make£5Grow money to buy items for props and costumes. Obviously, the acting and singing on stage has been rehearsed, tweaked and improved constantly.
NB: If you would like your child to walk home from the performances and disco, their class teacher needs a note or email otherwise we will expect them to be collected by an adult. Please specify 'all' or which performances they will be being collected.
We know you'll enjoy it as much as we have!
Year 6 team.
We look forward to seeing you there,
The Year 6 team and their budding scientists.
// The children will be partaking in some yoga and mindfulness exercises leading up to their exam week (WB 14th May). Do ask them about this so they can practise at home as we are aware that anxiety is building for a lot of children despite Year 6 trying to keep levels of stress down at this time.
// Breakfast club starts tomorrow at 8:20am - come in via the street entrance straight into the Y6 shared area (free of charge!)
// When reading, if your child child comes across a great word, why not add it onto this padlet for us to use as word of the week as a year group?
Thank you to the following children for improving our legacy with everything that they do this week: FALCONS: Edie OSPREYS: Thomas and Fintan KESTRELS: Lilia OWLS: Mimi EAGLES: Morgan

It is recommended that Year 6 children practise the Key Stage 2 key spellings.
Please use Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars regularly and record usage in Home Learning Journals.
Children should be reading every night. The more, the better.

The third homework celebration took place before the Easter break and we were astounded with how many children had done every single piece of their homework on time. We moved from 12 children to 62. The children are really starting to get themselves organised and ready for secondary school. Fingers crossed that next time we have 117!!
Kingswood at Grosvenor Hall
Our darling cherubs are now nearly asleep and so the moment has been grasped to share a few photos with you of today's events. Due to incredibly slow wifi, I will endevour to upload the other two thirds in the morning after our 0715 breakfast slot. I'm sure these snippets show just how glorious the weather has been and how fabulously the children have thrown themselves into the activities. If not fully throwing themselves off the side of the wall when abseiling, going up there and pushing themselves to stand on other side of the wall. Working hard in team challenges showing great listening skills and teamwork. Very proud teachers thus far! Fingers crossed for a quiet night from now so these warm, fuzzy and proud feelings last...!
Year 6 E Safety
Knowing about E Safety is so important for Year 6 children that we've added this section about what's good and bad about the internet and ways you can get yourself out of bad situations. The website we've chosen even has fun games you can play while learning E Safety. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
