Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Year 6. I am really excited about working with you and your child over this next school year. I am particularly looking forward to our visit to Laches Wood Outdoor Education Centre (Monday 9th October – Friday 13th October 2017). At Laches Wood your child will learn new skills and develop teamwork. This experience will give your child so much confidence to help them face the challenges of Year 6. This outdoor educational trip really will positively impact on your child - please ensure that any outstanding money, along with the consent form is in school by Friday 6th October at the very latest. You will also be required to complete a medical form for your child which will be sent out to you approximately one week before the visit.
I know that this year will present exciting opportunities to watch your child develop in a productive and caring learning environment. I, Miss Padgham and the children will constantly refer to the school motto, ‘Care to learn and learn to care.’
There is no doubt that Year 6 will be challenging and hard work. It is important that your child embraces the journey that will take them on to High School next September. I will be with them every step of the way to ensure that they are fully prepared for this important stage in their lives.
If you look under 'Autumn Term' in 'Curriculum Information' you will find my 'Welcome Letter' which includes a 'Curriculum Overview'. This should give you a broad overview of the things we will be learning about during this first term! If you wish to discuss any of this with me please do not hesitate to arrange to see me at a mutually conveneient time or, of course, at the Welcome Meeting - which you will receive a letter about - at the start of the term.
