Welcome to 6M –
Miss McCullagh’s Class
Summer Term 2017
Hello parents and children and welcome to 6M’s webpage.
It is hard to believe that I am now writing that we are in our final term of Y6 and the SATs period is looming. Can I just express how impressed I am each and every day with how hard –working and independent the children are. I of course, understand that Year 6 can be a very stressful period however, 6M as a class has matured and grew in confidence together, as well as supporting one another in their learning. Throughout the SATs week, I must reiterate the importance of trying your up-most best but even more so, remaining calm. We have already had a discussion about some tips about this week, for example, having some early nights and coming into school that little bit early to have a chat with friends and let those nerves go.
Out next topic is called ‘’Man and Machine’. Further details can be found on the Y5/Y6 Curriculum page.
Reading and Planners
Although SATs may pass, reading in Year 6 will continue to be extremely important as well as using your planner, not only to record your reading but to keep yourself organised. I expect everyone to read from their school reading book regularly – a minimum of three times per week. We will spend some time at the end of each week reflecting on what you have achieved and setting a new target for the following week. Planners are to be signed for every Monday.
It is expected that at the end of each week, your child should explain what they have liked/disliked and most importantly learnt in that week. More importantly it is your time to ensure your child has completed the given tasks, before signing at the bottom.
PE kits must be in school every day. We are timetabled to undertake our PE lessons on Tuesday and Friday however, as you can appreciate, timetables have to be flexible so the days may change. If you wear your PE kit to an after school club, please ensure that you bring it back in the following day. If for any reason you cannot partake in our PE lessons, you are required to bring in a note of explanation from home.
Transition to High School
Many children may have already started to think about the transition to High School. This again can be a very stressful time as well as being an exciting time. Children will have a transition period in
which they visit the High School as well as discussions from various people who are involved in this process which again should hopefully eliminate the worries.
I hope you find this information useful. If you do have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me in the morning or at the end of the day.
Thank you for your continued support
