Year 6 2021 - 2022

Miss Smith

Welcome to Year 6.

We are very excited to start a bubble-free school year with whole school assemblies and collaborative group work again! Year 6 is a special time in primary school and it is wonderful that the children are already beginning to take on roles and responsibilities around the school, setting a good example to their peers. This year, our Teaching Assistants are Miss Girven and Miss Beddoe. We are all committed to providing the children with a broad and balanced curriculum that will prepare them for their SATs tests and ensure they are secondary school ready when they leave St Paul’s.

Our Topic this term is “Hyde’s Hair-Raising History” which focusses on how the town of Hyde was formed and has developed to what it is today. During the topic, we look at the effects of The Industrial Revolution in the Victorian period and how the town changed during World War Two. More information about the Autumn term curriculum can be found here: http://www.st-pauls-hyde.tameside.sch.uk/page/year-6-/20225

If there are any questions at all, please feel free to ask me at the end of the day, if you pick your child up from school, or email me on: year6Sm@st-pauls-hyde.tameside.sch.uk.

Reading Books

Reading in Year 6 is of great importance to your child’s education: children need to read a wide variety of texts as often as possible. Please try to read every night. Your child can now choose their school reading books by genre, which should not only help develop their love for reading but should help them choose a varied selection of books. Reading in year 6 can often be independent, but discussing books and reading together, where possible, at home can greatly help your child’s progress.

Homework

Each week, a piece of English and Maths will be set on Google Classroom. The work will be online on a Friday and will need to be completed by the following Wednesday. A spelling list will also be sent home every Friday and a spelling test will take place the following Friday.

Please contact me if you need your child's username and password.

Swimming

The children will begin swimming on Thursday 9th September 2021 to Thursday 9th December 2021.

Please send your child to school with their swimming on a Thursday, including a labelled towel.  Please note the following requirements:

  • Boys must wear swimming trunks, not shorts.
  • Girls must wear a one piece swimming costume, not bikinis or tankinis.
  • No jewellery can be worn in the pool; children with pierced ears must have earrings removed before coming to school as teaching staff are not allowed to remove earrings.
  • All girls (plus boys with long hair) must wear a swimming hat.
  • Goggles are not allowed unless there is a specific medical condition that requires the use of goggles, and a permission slip, which is available at the school office, must be completed.

Please note the above requirements are the Swimming Baths Policy and if not adhered to the swimming instructors may withdraw the child from participating in the swimming lesson.

Physical Education

P.E will take place on a Friday each week, but I would appreciate P.E kits being kept in school each week in case the timetable needs to change. All jewellery- including earrings-will need to be removed before school, and long hair must be tied back.

Again, If there are any further questions, queries, or additional information you would like to share with me, then please do not hesitate to contact me on year6Sm@st-pauls-hyde.tameside.sch.uk.

Kind Regards,

Miss Smith
