Hello there YEAR 6!
Mr.Smith here to tell you about some of the exciting learning opportunities Year 6 will be experiencing throughout the rest of this academic year, which again has been very different due to COVID-19. The aim for the rest of this year is to prepare you for Secondary School and to create as many final memories of your time at Brickhouse as possible!
Examples of previous years photos and information can be found at the bottom of the page! Feel free to have a look through to help you if need be.
It is also important to mention that if you have any issues or worries, please come and see me as soon as possible so I can help in any way. It's my priority to make sure your child is as happy as possible and that they want to come to school to improve their learning. One of the best ways to get in touch with me over any concerns you have is by emailing the YEAR 6 email address. I check this regularly throughout the day and also in the evening so if there are any issues I am aware of them.
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember...Attendance is vitally important so come to school every day so you can learn as much as you can! You don't want to miss out on anything important do you?
Summer Term 2021= Growing Into A Grown Up!
Welcome back after our Easter Holidays and hopefully something that starts to resemble normality in the world! Things will still be running the same here at school though!
! I hope you have a lovely, restful break! We've now got lots of hard work to commence to prepare ourselves this term for our lives away at Brickhouse when we start our Secondary Schools in September - it will soon be here! My job is to prepare you as much as possible for this transition!
This term, all our topics link together and belong to the theme, "Growing Into A Grown Up!" This means we will be looking at ways to improve our understandings of ourselves and ways in which we can cope with extra pressures and stresses - for example preparing for life after Primary School.
To run alongside this, in Science we will be looking at Evolution and Inheritance. We will investigate where human life started and how it has adapted and evolved. We will also be looking at these traits within animals and how they are classified and sorted.
To further embed how we grow and our characters develop, in English we will be looking at the story of "Treasure Island" where a heroic boy called Jim changes and grows throughout the story to become a much braver character.
Throughout the term, extra information will be coming out about the end of year and what potential activities we will be able to do! I am trying to think creatively of some events we could do within school to give you some lovely final memories of Brickhouse.
PE will now be taking place on a Monday and possibly a Thursday so please make sure you have trainers on for these days! With the weather being nicer, we will try and do as much PE outside as possible!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns please come and see me!
Thank you, Mr.Smith x
