Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page

Year Six has a very busy academic year coming up. We begin with our
creative curriculum topic: ‘Would I survive in the rainforest?’ – a
geography-led topic which takes in not only environmental study, but also
lots of ethical questions relating to issues in our own lives. We look
forward to our fundraising day – ‘Orange for Orangutan’ in November and building some sturdy shelters in class. Watch out for news, photos and information regarding these events.

PLEASE CHECK THIS PAGE REGULALRY FOR UPDATES ON HOMEWORK AND KEY MESSAGES FOR HOME.

In the mean time, Mr Day sought to inspire the new Year Six children…’Be
More Cloud’ is our class motto! Take a look:

Emotional health and mental well-being…

Hello everyone.

I just want to point you in the direction of a new set of resources on our ‘Learning’ tab dropdown on the website.

If you click on it, you will find a range of resources and documents that contain some useful advice: especially if your children are struggling somewhat during the lockdown.

Please take a moment to have a look at the resources – particularly the information on World Mental Health Awareness Day.

Don’t forget, if we can help – we will do our best. There is usually someone here at school you can talk to.

Best wishes to you all on behalf of all the staff here at St Mary’s.

Mr Day
