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.
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.
Preparations for this years Christmas Production are now well underway with Key Stage 2 classrooms becoming hives of activity. The script is being polished, the scenery is under construction and the stars of the show (all 120 of them!) are rehearsing their lines, songs and dances.

We had a brilliant trip to the Plague Village of Eyam where the children were able to experience a little of what it was like for the inhabitants during the plague outbreak of 1665. We found our way out of the the main village to visit both the boundary stone - the outer threshold of the village where villagers were forbidden to pass - and the graves of the Hancock family who lived on Riley Farm.
We also entered the Eyam Parish Church, which contain the stained glass window that depicts the main events of the outbreak, and reflected for a period on the fates of those who has sat on the same pews hundreds of years earlier.
