Y6 Morpurgo Class

Y6 Morpurgo

Welcome to Year 6: Morpurgo Class!

Mrs Nicholls, Mrs Armour, Mrs Bamford and Mrs Burdett will be the teaching staff in Morpurgo Class. We are all very excited to be leading our class on a ‘Journey to Excellence’ as we reach this very important milestone in their primary career.

We start the year off with our residential to Marchants Hill. This will be a fun and educational week where we can bond and develop some important life skills.

We will of course be preparing for SATs tests, which start in May. We will all work together to ensure all children reach their full potential. That will mean hard-work from both students and teachers! Should you wish to invest in a revision-guide to support your child’s learning at home, the Year 6 team reference the ‘Achieve 100’ series; as well as ’Achieve 100 PLUS’ which is designed for learners aspiring to reach ‘Greater Depth’.

In Year 6, we hope to also prepare children for life in secondary school. This means taking on more responsibilities and developing leadership skills. As Year 6 are at the top of the school, we do expect all children to set a good example for others around the school. There are opportunities to take on leading roles as either: Head Boy/Girl, Prefect or School Council member. These are all jobs which require children to respect the rights of others in the school, be creative, able to share ideas with others and be excellent role models.

Homework:

Spelling- there will be 20 words given weekly. This will vary between project glossaries and word patterns for the children to remember. We would strongly recommend they use the look, say, cover, write, check method and preferably tackle 5 words per night. Vocabulary lists will be given out half-termly and a test will be administered every Thursday.

Reading should be a minimum of 15 minutes a night and 5 minutes on a reflection about a character or the plot, as given in the exemplar. If you have any concerns, then paired reading and scribing for your child is acceptable to keep within the 15 minutes.

In addition to this we will be giving out a piece of Maths and English for consolidation on Friday, which is to be returned the following Wednesday. If for any reason homework is not completed, please send a note in and we can arrange for a break or lunch time catch up.

PE: For the first half-term we will be taking part in Gymnastics lessons on Thursday afternoons and after half-term we will be Swimming on Fridays. Please ensure that PE kit and swimming kits are brought in on these days. Advice on earrings is that all jewellery should be removed for safety for all PE activities. If ears are recently pierced, children must bring in their own plasters to cover their ears for the 6 weeks healing time recommended. After this earrings should be removed for PE. Please could all items of PE kit be clearly labelled to help children identify their belongings.

If you have any worries or concerns please come in and speak to us at the end of the day.

We look forward to working with you all this year.

Mrs Nicholls (DHT), Mrs Armour (English Lead), Mrs Bamford and Mrs Burdett.

Home Learning Tasks and school closure

It is important that whilst children are off school they maintain a routine of learning as far as a possible, in order to ensure a positive mental well-being. The school has created some creative home learning packs which we would like all parents to have a go at doing with your child(ren) at home.  These will be updated on a weekly basis.
