Welcome back – it’s been so good to see all of the children back in school after being away for so long. They have settled back in amazingly well and have been impressing me with their positive learning behaviours. I have put the curriculum information for this half-term and the homework grid just below this.
Year 6 is such a busy and important year with lots going on. The SATs tests will take place in May, but we will have a meeting to explain all about them later on in the year. They are nothing to worry about as I will make sure that the children are well prepared for them and simply encouraged to do their best. The Beacon Centre residential trip is something I hope to be able to get more information to you as soon as I am able.
We will have outdoor games and PE on Friday afternoons with Play Sports. Could you please ensure PE kits are in school (black shorts and white tops for indoors, the same plus trainers (and football boots if we are on the grass if your child wishes) and a plain dark tracksuit for outdoors. If your child has hair down to their shoulders or longer then they will need to have it tied back (or be able to tie it back themselves before the lesson). Any earrings will have to be removed or covered over by micropore tape or plasters (again by the child themselves). I appreciate that this may seem a bit of a pain, but both rules are standard in all schools and are for safety reasons.
Homework will come out on a grid as it did last year. Can the first half-term homework please be handed in by FRIDAY 16th OCTOBER so that I can mark it and return it to the children before half-term. I would like to see 5 pieces chosen from the grid (obviously you can do more if you wish as that’s a great way of earning more House Points) and it would be great to see them chosen from different rows.
If you want any advice re secondary school choices I will do my utmost to help where I can or else point you in the direction of someone who can!
As ever, if you have any questions or need to speak to me, try to catch me as the children come in or out of school, or make an appointment via the school office and I will happy to help wherever I can. Alternatively, Year6@stmicheast.co.uk is the best email address to reach me on.
Thanking you all for your continuing support.

Hello to all Year 6 pupils and families.
It’s all gone a bit mad hasn’t it? You’re all at home trying to get used to just how different everything is and trying to get along with everyone else stuck at home with you.
I’m so sorry I missed you all in that crazy last week, but I have to follow guidance just like everyone else so I am still at home until Tuesday. We are all well here though so please don’t worry.
Can I please ask you all to remember to be as patient and kind as you can with each other and the wider world in such unusual times. Everyone will be feeling a bit more anxious or worried than usual so please try to think about others as well as yourself. Most importantly, follow the guidance: stay home and keep yourself and others safe.
I will try to get more work and things for you to keep yourself busy with over the coming weeks. It is going to be quite different for a while but we all need to adjust to that and do our bit to keep going the best we can.
Take care of yourselves and each other, but most of all stay safe.

Welcome to Year 6’s corner of the website. As the year progresses we will add examples of what we are learning, what events we have been to and what we are looking forward to doing on our page.
As ever, the children will be busy, especially in the run in to Christmas. We have the Advent Eucharist on Wednesday 4th December at 9.30am in Church, the Christmas Market from 5pm to 7pm on Friday 6th December as well as the Carol Service in Church at 9.30am on Wednesday 18th December among the plethora of things going on in the next few weeks.
Art lessons with Mrs Hawke will continue to take place every Wednesday afternoon with PE every Friday afternoon with Play Sports – please ensure the children have their kit in school EVERY Friday with suitable trainers for outdoor PE as they will continue to go outside whenever possible.
Once we get in to the New Year, I will add links to what we are learning and where you can find tips to help with that and the homework grid. We will also add pictures of the outstanding work that the children have done as well as audio files of their stunning radio broadcasts. Keep your eye on our pages as lots will appear here over time.
