Welcome to our Year 6 family. We are an impeccable, happy and joyful class who pride ourselves on being role models for the rest of the school. As we are ‘Guardians of the Caldew Lea Galaxy’, we look out for each other and our younger peers. We continually demonstrate the 3 R’s – responsibility, resilience and respect. We are looking forward to a brilliant last year before we leave to start our new life at secondary school.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Year 6 can be viewed as the most vital year in a child’s primary education. As we look forward to their upcoming adventure at secondary school, the children will be acquiring lots of new skills and learning in order to prepare them for their next challenge. As ‘Guardians of the Caldew Lea Galaxy’, they have really risen to the challenge of being role models for the rest of the school, continually demonstrating our 3 R’s.

It is vital that the children come to school organised and well prepared for their day. Punctuality, appearance and attitude towards school life are a must and important to demonstrate expectations for the rest of the school. Additionally, greater responsibility needs to be taken by the children of their belongings, including any equipment and PE Kits. Allowing them to take this responsibility is great practice for later life.

When the children arrive from 8.40am, they will complete a morning task in order to prepare them for the rest of the day. It is important that they arrive promptly to limit the eventuality of missing any of the important learning that happens in Year 6.

Homework will be given to the children every Friday. This will comprise of a Maths or SPAG activity and spellings which need to be practised and included in sentences of their own. Additionally, we expect that the children read three times a week and access our online learning platforms such as Spelling Shed.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. The children need to wear an appropriate kit on these days which can be kept in school.

Any questions or queries about any aspect of school life, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your continued support.
