Year 6: Luther King class
The children have worked extremely hard during Autumn and Spring term and are well prepared for their SAT's. We are looking forward to our final term and the end of our journey at Our Lady & St Gerard's. We look forward to working together to prepare your children for the next step as they embark on life at High School.
We will continue to follow our Behaviour Charter, encouraging the children to: 'Be Safe'; 'Be a learner' and 'Be kind and respectful'. We ask that each child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning.
Within our Curriculum during Summer Term we will be learning about North America in Geography and the Vikings in History. We will continue to develop our maths and writing skills in preparation for high school. Our Science topic is Light and we are lucky to be attending a Science Festival at UCLAN in May.
We are also excited to begin our end of Year 6 Production which will be amazing!
Every Friday, homework will be set. This will consist of Maths and English. In addition, please encourage your child to read as often as possible. Reading books should be brought to school every day.
P.E. will be on Tuesday and Friday this year. Full P.E. kit (black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and trainers) must be in school every week. Jewellery should not be worn on these days.
Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any questions throughout the year. I look forward to working with you and your children.
Our Behaviour Charter
Our school Behaviour Policy is built upon the ‘5 pillars of Pivotal Practice’ (‘When Adults Change, Everything Changes’, Paul Dix):
Consistent, calm adult behaviour,
First attention to best conduct,
Scripting difficult conversations,
We have three simple goals: Be safe, Be a Learner, Be Kind and Respectful.
Year 6 Overview of Themes 2022-23
Recommended Reading Books
We have selected these recommended reading lists from Peters Education to ensure that our children have access to a wide range of books. These books are all available in school and form our 'core' texts in our class libraries. These lists are chosen because they:
- link with our curriculum for each year group
- represent different cultures
- introduce children to new authors and expand their knowledge of familiar authors
- ensure progression
- match topics of interests for our children
- tackle current themes
