SYCAMORE - Year 6
This is a very important year where the children study hard, learn many new things and revise previous topics covered. The children know the importance of doing well in class as it is the final chance to prepare for their next adventure - High School.
This is the last year at Woodbank Primary School and a year of great importance. By working hard, revising and studying, I hope that you all achieve the grades that you deserve. It is important to show those clear Year 6 qualities that will improve yourself as a person and be that quality role model for the younger children at our school. By working hard now, you will be able to take Year 7 in your stride and flourish during your years at High School.
Be Responsible...Be Respectful...Be Resilient
Our topic this half term is all about the harsh conditions experienced by children working in Victorian cotton mills. We will be studying in depth the text,”Far From Home”, by Berlie Doherty. This text will enable the children to have a deeper knowledge and understanding of the context, harsh conditions of working children in a cotton mill plus the thoughts and feelings of the characters in the novel.
Monday 2nd December – in school – small fee required (£2.30).
As part of our topic, I have arranged for the class to take part in a clog dancing session – like the characters in the text, “Far From Home”.
A further letter will be sent home.
Outdoor Games lessons will be on Thursday this term. Indoor PE will be on Monday this term.
Kits are to stay in school and taken home every half term for washing.
