Year 6 2020 - 2021
Welcome back to year six this summer term
YEAR 6 2020 - 2021
This term will be a busy one with a focus on teaching the curriculum as well as focusing on the transition needed for the children`s next important move to their various high schools. We have already had some visits from staff from some high schools and expect more over the next term. We aim to make this a term a term to remember at Chester Blue Coat, making the most of all the opportunities we can to work together as a team for the last few weeks of their time in primary school.
Our topic will be explorers and survival, continuing with our Shackleton work and the building and design of shelters. We will be using electricity and light in practical experiments in science and finding out about other religions in RE. Cricket, outdoor adventurous activities, orienteering, football, rounders and athletics will be some of the PE activities we will be doing too. PE will be on a Tuesday, so you need to wear your PE kit all day on Tuesdays (PE kit suitable for the weather and school uniform colours please - we aim to go outside wherever possible so a waterproof coat with a hood is also important)and school uniform on every other day. We are due to have PE on one other day of the week too. For the first few weeks this will be a Wednesday as we are lucky to have a football coach in to deliver sessions to us from Chester Football Club.
Parents evenings for this summer term will be via Zoom. They will be held on Tuesday 27th April 5-7.30pm, and Thursday 29th April 3.30-6pm. You will be able to book appointments on school spider. A zoom link has been emailed to you for each meeting.
A reminder that we start 8:30am and it is important to be there for this time as this is when small intervention group work takes place and we finish at 2:55pm. Please don't bring anything to school other than a lunch box (if required), coat and water bottle. A water bottle is really important at the moment as water fountains cannot be shared.
Bug Club is an excellent website we pay for so the children can have access to books from a variety of genres allocated to them by their teachers. Each child has been given a login for this. (Don`t forget to remind them to click on the bugs for the questions as they are reading.) Some children will be continuing with Reading plus on a rota system. Please make the most of this. Also Read Theory is an alternative to this at other times.
We also have access to SPAG.com and would like the children to complete any activities that are on there weekly to practise their grammar skills ready for high school.
If you need to contact us please use the following contact details or the office will forward any emails to us.
