Welcome to Year 6!
The teachers in Year 6 are Mr Cusick, Mrs Belfield and Miss Hopwood.
Everyone has settled in brilliantly so far and we are really looking forward to the year ahead.
Our indoor and outdoor P.E. sessions for the first half term are Monday afternoons and will be taught between both Mr Cusick and Mr Quinn. Therefore, your child will need both pumps and trainers with them each week along with BOTH their kits.
We will also be going swimming on a Thursday afternoon at Medlock Sports Centre. The children will require a note if you wish them to wear goggles during the session.
PLEASE NOTE: The children will be arriving back at school at around 3.30 pm. You may wish to pick them up at the sports centre, if so, you must let us know via a letter or note and guarantee to be there by 3.15.
Homework: Spellings have been given out to the children for the first 6 weeks. They will be tested on each weeks spellings on a TUESDAY.
Each child will also receive homework in English and Maths that will need to be returned on the date printed on the piece of homework.
The Great Plague
We are studying the Black Death Plague that struck throughout Europe in the 17th Century. As part of our learning we will be visiting the Village of Eyam in Derbyshire where the inhabitants made the difficult decision to seal off their village to avoid spreading the illness throughout the surrounding settlements. There, we will visit the museum remembering their sacrifice and explore the village to find the memorials of those who perished.
By now you will be aware of our upcoming trip to the village of Eyam in Derbyshire on Wednesday 24th October. The children are really looking forward to seeing the places that they have studied virtually in the flesh.
Please make sure that your child is fully prepared for the day by sending them in with suitable clothing for a day out in the countryside (whatever the weather may throw at us). They need to be warm clothes and (where possible) waterproof.
We will be leaving school at 9 am so ensure that your child is on time and arrives no later than 8:45 as we will be unable to delay our journey to accommodate lateness. To allow for a full day in Eyam, the children will arrive back at school for around 4 pm.
