On Monday 12th September, Mr Cassidy hosted a meeting in the hall outlining the secondary school admission application process - to look through the slides shared that evening, click here.

You can find an overview of the Year Six curriculum for this half term at the bottom of this web page. This details what children are learning in all aspects of the curriculum in Spring 1. To enrich their learning this half term, Y6 children will be visiting the Imperial War Museum in Manchester. Details have been emailed out to parents regarding this. 

The Year 6 children had an assembly about the theme of road safety. Feel free to discuss this with your children. Helpful slides from the presentation can be found here

Back in the summer, on Thursday 30th June, we hosted a well-attended Zoom meeting regarding the Y5 into Y6 transition - this presentation can be found here. Glance at the Y6 overview to see which topics will be covered throughout the year. To familiarise yourselves with the site on Claremount Road, have a watch of Miss Pickering's tour of Top Site

In November, Year Six attended their Y6 residential at Condover Hall. We created a special Condover Hall trip page for our residential trip.  You can read that by clicking here. There are also many news items (and photos) covering that trip.

Homework will be given to children in Year 6 each week, on a Friday. The homework each week will include - 4 home reads (with an adult and reading log signed). It is advisable to listen to your child read and ask them questions related to what they are reading, so that there is a focus on comprehension and understanding rather than simply the amount read. In Year 6, we use VIPERS for reading questions . 

Homework will be outlined on a Friday and should return to school no later than the following Wednesday.
