Year 6 2021 - 2022

Miss Smith

Welcome to the year 6 class page. Please find below,  

I hope you have all managed to have a restfull break and joyous break. I cannot believe it is the start of a new term already.  Spring term is full of excitement from exploring how magical creatures have been driven to extinction, to going to Kingswood! This term, our Teaching Assistants are Miss Girven and Mrs Ingham . We are all committed to providing the children with a broad and balanced curriculum that will ensure they are secondary school ready when they leave St Paul’s.

Our geography topic this term is, "The Amazing Americas ” which will build on some of the geographical skills and knowledge the children developed last term when investigating, through mapwork, where bombs were dropped in Hyde during the Manchester Blitz. The children will compare the physical and human geography of Hyde and the surrounding area to regions of the Americas. In Spring 2, the children will hopefully (Covid restrictions permitting) complete a detailed fieldwork study of the local area to compare similarities and differences. They will also consider the impact that human actions have had and are continuing to have throughout the Americas and here. More information about the learning that will take place in Spring term 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

Homework reinforces learning that has taken part in the classroom and developing the time management skills and drive to complete homework will certainly stand children in good stead for September. 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. 

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

Physical Education

P.E will take place on a Thursday and 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
