Letter to Year 6


Please read Miss Perkins and Miss Turner's letter to Year 6 here.



In the letter, we explain that unfortunately, plans for SRE (Sex and Relationships Education) had to be altered this year. Secondary schools are aware and will make sure any missed SRE is fully covered. Below is a document to explain in more detail what would have been covered and resources you can use with your child if you would like to discuss what would have been talked about in school.

You can also view our school PSHE (inc Sex and Relationship Education) Policy here, which is also on our website (About Us > Policies).

 *Year 6 Leavers' Book*

The Year 6 Leavers' Books have arrived in the school office! When you are able to, please come to collect your child's copy, before Friday 17th July 2020, and between the hours of 10am-3pm. You will also be given a 'It's Your Move' Transition booklet, provided by Yo-Yo, and a small gift from the Year 6 team. You may want to bring a bag with you.

Seesaw Home Learning

As a school, we've decided that we're going to use the online learning platform, Seesaw, to set home learning activities for the Summer Term. We hope the children will also be able to reconnect and share their learning with their peers and teachers.

If you haven't already, please make sure that you have joined our Year 6 class.

Joining Seesaw:

Instructions for joining Seesaw: Click here

Class Code: QLJW LYSK (expires on 7th July, 2020)

Note: Only the children should log on to our class - our aim is for parents and children to use the same account so we don’t have too many users. If you've got any questions or want to check out what we're putting on, you can look through your child's account; we're sure they won't mind! 

Let us know if you have any problems signing up!

Home Learning Activities:

We will be uploading weekly and daily tasks/challenges to the 'Activities' section. Have a look in this section when you log in for an explanation about how we are going to be using Seesaw to set tasks and share our learning.

We do not expect the children to spend a lot of time working through the various activities; they should ideally work in short bursts with plenty of 'brain breaks' and physical activity. We understand that this is a strange time for everyone, so there is no expectation for children to complete and respond to all of the activities. 

Here is a suggested schedule for you to follow, when working through the activities on Seesaw: Click here

Summer Term Topics

Geography/History: It's All Greek To Me! (Ancient Greece/Olympics)
