Welcome to Y6
I would like to say a quick hello as a new member of the St Stephen’s team. My name is Miss Kay and I’m really looking forward to an exciting year ahead getting to know you all and working together to achieve the best results we can.
I hope you’ve had a refreshing holiday and the children are ready to start Year 6 with a bang!
As it is SATs year, we’re looking forward to a year of hard work, but also a lot of fun along the way.
This year we are starting off with our topic ‘Who are we?’
This topic is linked to our Science work, which is based around evolution and inheritance, and how animals have adapted to their environment.
We will also be looking at the book King Kong in our English work, who was taken out of his natural environment.
P.E. this half term will be on Mondays (DCC) and Wednesday.
Please can you check that your child has all the correct P.E. kit and that it is in class on the first day back for this half term.
School P.E kit:
A white t-shirt
Black hoodie/ jacket (for outdoor P.E)
Black jogging bottoms (for outdoor P.E)
Black pumps or trainers
(Please ensure children have a warm PE kit in the winter months for outdoor P.E.)
P.E kits should be in school for the full half term and will be returned for washing at the end of each half term.
It is a HUGE help if names are on ALL items, including P.E bags! Many thanks in advance.
Homework and Spellings
Homework will be sent home on Tuesday to be returned to class on the following Tuesday.
Spellings will be sent home on Friday for a quick spelling practise test on the following Friday.
Please can we ask that children are practising their spellings regularly as this has a huge impact on their reading and writing progress.
We look forward to a good year together.
Miss Kay and Mrs Mizera
(Year 6 Team)
