Meadowhead Virtual Open Evening
Welcome to Year 6 - 2020!
This Year the Year 6 Team includes Mr Holland, Mrs Hall and Mrs Lawton.
During this first half-term we will be working with the children to ensure new routines are secured and relationships are built. We will be completing different PHSE activities to support this. In addition to this, our first topic is WW2 and learning will be linked across the curriculum. We will also be identifying gaps in English and Maths and providing opportunities to re-visit and consolidate specific areas of learning. The Knowledge Organiser is attached below.
If you have any questions, queries or concerns please can you can contact me directly in the first instance by email:
Mrs Lawton will be in class teaching on Monday and Friday afternoons and will be with us everyday between 11:00 and 12:00. Mrs Hall will be in class everyday.
Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that you arrive in your PE Kit, which can include black shorts, tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt, a zip up hoody or jacket and trainers. Do not wear football shirts as this is not part of our PE kit.
Homework will be put on the Year 6 class page of the school website every Friday afternoon. Homework will always be linked to learning which we have been completing in school. A date for completion will be attached to the activity.
If you would like to share your homework, please can a parent/carer email it to the above address. We will have a homework celebration board in class where work will be displayed. Please do not send your child in with a paper copy.
The children are becoming increasingly more familiar with their new routines. We have lunch between 12:30pm and 1:30pm and eat our lunch at 1:00pm. As this is a longer morning than previously you may wish to pack a snack (piece of fruit) for your child at break time.
At the end of the school day, 3:15pm, if you are happy for your child in Y6 to walk home from school, then please email Mr Holland/Miss Gill so we are aware of this. Mr Holland will only release children to other parents if we have been informed beforehand.
Homework - Friday 6th November
All homework will now be set on Google Classrooms. Please sign up using the Username and Password which have been sent out via email.
This week we have been creating prototypes for the Anderson Shelter's which we will be making in the coming weeks. The children have had great fun designing and making different structures. I can't wait to see the real models! We will be providing materials for the children to use in school and create their own shelters. Some children have asked if they can bring additional materials from home: sponge, cardboard, tin foil etc. If your child wishes to bring anything from home, please bring them in a carrier bag and we will quarantine these items for 72 hours before we use them.
Have a great weekend
