Brunswick Primary School

Enjoy, Exceed, Excel

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.

Try these breathing exercises if you're getting anxious at home or in school - we'll be practising them in school!

 

Notices 08/05/18

// Home learning journals should be in children's bags every day.
// Year 6 are very excited to invite their parents to their science fair from 2pm on 6th June. Come along to see what exciting experiments they have set about all about electricity and light! It's set to be an electrifying (but very safe!) event!

We look forward to seeing you there,

The Year 6 team and their budding scientists.

// The children will be partaking in some yoga and mindfulness exercises leading up to their exam week (WB 14th May). Do ask them about this so they can practise at home as we are aware that anxiety is building for a lot of children despite Year 6 trying to keep levels of stress down at this time. 

// Anxiety levels a bit high at the moment? Struggling to get to sleep? Try these yoga moves and breathing exercises to help! 

// Breakfast club starts tomorrow at 8:20am - come in via the street entrance straight into the Y6 shared area (free of charge!)

// Yoga has begun in Y6! Ask them about the moves and breathing exercises that they've learned this week :)

 

 

// 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 Celebration

The third homework celebration took place before the Easter break and we were astounded with how many children had done every single piece of their homework on time. We moved from 12 children to 62. The children are really starting to get themselves organised and ready for secondary school. Fingers crossed that next time we have 117!!

Our darling cherubs are now nearly asleep and so the moment has been grasped to share a few photos with you of today's events. Due to incredibly slow wifi, I will endevour to upload the other two thirds in the morning after our 0715 breakfast slot.   I'm sure these snippets show just how glorious the weather has been and how fabulously the children have thrown themselves into the activities. If not fully throwing themselves off the side of the wall when abseiling, going up there and pushing themselves to stand on other side of the wall. Working hard in team challenges showing great listening skills and teamwork. Very proud teachers thus far! Fingers crossed for a quiet night from now so these warm, fuzzy and proud feelings last...! 

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.
