Enjoy, Exceed, Excel
A massive thank you to the following children for living our legacy and being such great role models this week: Falcon: Osprey: Kestrel: Owl: Eagle: Kite:
Welcome to the Year 6 website! We have kicked off the year by discussing what an honour it is to be at the top of the school and having so many young people looking up to us. This led us on to brainstorming how to enhance our 'legacy' that we will leave behind, both as an individual and as a year group team. This is based on a book I recently read called 'Legacy' about the All Blacks rugby team in New Zealand.
We are having a big push to make sure that we represent ourselves the best we can by: living the values; taking pride in our uniform; grasping all opportunities that come our way; and being the best that we can be. We are even 'sweeping the sheds' just like the All Blacks do at the end of every game "because no one should clean up after an All Black". Do feel free to continue this at home!!
The video below will give you a little more insight into this Legacy that we are aiming to achieve.
Rob Lloyd Jones visit
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Rob the author of our text for this Dare to be Different topic and what an inspiration he was! Be sure to be curious and do things which aren't normally your cup of tea to discover more of what's out there!
// We are looking forward to discussing Kingswood and for you to meet the teachers - the original time and day of Thursday 13th at 8:50am has been cancelled because another year group is having their meeting then. I will send a text as soon as an alternative is arrange: I do apologise for any inconvenience.
// When reading, if your child child comes across a great word, why not add it onto this padlet for us to use as word of the week as a year group?

|Homework Tasks||Learning Quest Booklets||Letters Home|
It is recommended that Year 6 children practise the Key Stage 2 key spellings. We highly recommend using the Spelling Shed app/website as the spellings are tailored to the children.
Please use Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars regularly and record usage in Home Learning Journals.
Children should be reading every night. The more, the better.

Year 6 E Safety
Knowing about E Safety is so important for Year 6 children that we've added this section about what's good and bad about the internet and ways you can get yourself out of bad situations. The website we've chosen even has fun games you can play while learning E Safety. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
