Welcome to Year 6
Welcome back to a very busy term! We hope you (and your children) are all relaxed and ready for the challenges of the new term – your children’s last at Trinity! Our overarching topic is ‘Kensuke’, based around the Michael Morpurgo novel, and will involve elements of geographical and historical study.
Tests (and thank you):
Although there are no Government SAT tests this year, as a team we feel it is a really important, beneficial experience, and the children have worked really hard in demanding circumstances. Consequently, we will be running a SAT style week, during May from the week commencing 17.05.21. During our actual test week, we will be providing hot chocolate each morning, and hopefully have some fun in the afternoons. As a special reward after the final test, we will provide an extra (edible) treat.
Summer Term Curriculum:
This half term, we will be reading ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ in class, and using this as source material for our writing. In Science, we will be looking at ‘Habitats’, in History we will be focussing on ‘The Mayans’, whilst in Geography we will be investigating ‘Is fair trade fair?’
We will also start to put together the Year 6 Leavers’ Production. Parts will be auditioned for and allocated before half term, and spoken parts will receive their lines for learning over the half term break.
We are hopeful that, as the Covid restrictions continue to ease, we will be able to organise various local day trips and fun activities to, at least in part, compensate for the cancellation of a residential trip this year. Please be aware, there will be some costs associated with this.
We should be able to reinstate our fundraising project, ‘Make £5 Grow’ this year, where each small group receives £5 to plan a business enterprise, culminating in running their own stall, to see how much can be raised to benefit the school. We will let you know details as soon as we are able to make concrete plans.
In addition, we are currently looking into Leavers’ T-shirts to be provided as part of the final week experience, and to provide a memento of their final year at Trinity.
We appreciate that as the children grow older, they gain more independence. Children who wish to walk or cycle home on their own must have a completed ‘Walking Home Alone’ form which is available from your class teacher.
PE and Swimming:
For the first half term it will be 6D’s turn to swim on Tuesdays, and after half term it will be 6SE’s turn to swim. Indoor PE on Tuesdays for the entire summer term will focus on street dance led by a dance company, and Thursdays will be games on the school field.
We look forward to spending the final term with our lovely Y6.
