Hello and welcome to Year 6!

 

10.6.24  Message from Mrs Ashton and Mrs Robinson,

We can’t believe that this is the final half term at St Paul’s for Year 6. This half term promises to be a very exciting one: we have sports day, One Adventure activity treat day, our leavers’ play, our leavers’ service and the leavers’ party to look forward to; not to mention the residential at The Anderton Centre for some children!

We are sure you will make some memories over then next few weeks which will stay with you throughout your lives!

Our Christian Value this half term is perseverance.

In English the theme will be journalistic writing.

Please note PE kit can be left in school for the half term. It is important that children have their PE kit ready for lessons as children who do not have kit in school will lose break and dinner times. 

Homework                                                            

Spelling: Children will be set spellings on a Tuesday to be tested the following Tuesday.

Reading:  Reading books must be brought into school every day and will be checked regularly. Please listen to your child read at home and make comments in their reading record.

Maths and English homework will not be set for Y6 this term but please ensure that they read to an adult regularly, in preparation for the demands of the Y7 curriculum. The children will also need to ensure that they learn their lines for the Leavers’ Play and song words.

School Uniform Expectations

The school uniform is compulsory for all children and it is important that children

come to school in the correct school uniform. The uniform consists of the following:

  • Green sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo
  • Yellow (plain) polo shirt
  • Grey/black skirt or pinafore or grey/black trousers.
  • Plain low heeled black shoes. No trainers/canvas footwear.
  • For indoor P.E. kit, Black P.E. pumps, black shorts and yellow (plain) t-shirt

  • The school uniform can be purchased online from myclothing.com
  • All clothes and belongings must be clearly marked with your child’s name. The school cannot be held responsible for items of uniform which go missing, especially if they have not been labelled. There is a lost property box in reception and all items of uniform which are not labelled can be found there.
  • We do however; empty this box termly and any items not collected will be disposed of.
