Year 6 Information Sheet for Parents
Year 6 are Grateful
'If the only prayer you said was 'Thank You', that would be enough'
Everyone in class has made their very own 'Box of Blessings'. We will keep writing down things we are grateful for and add them to this very special box.
Our Class Saint : Saint Oscar Romero
Celebrate the feast of Saint Oscar Romero: 24th March.
Some of our favourite Oscar Romero quotes:
'Aspire not to have more, but to be more'
'Those who have a voice must speak for those who are voiceless'
'Peace is the product of justice and love'
'God is not satisfied with appearance. God wants the garment of justice. God wants his Christians dressed in love'
'Let us not tire of preaching love; it is the force that will overcome the world'
Our class, and school, rules are taken from St Paul's letter to the Romans.
Our first topic this year will be World War 1 and we have a lot of things planned. We will be visiting The Imperial War Museum in Manchester, auditing the condition of The War Memorial in Morecambe, looking at poems and diaries from that time and exploring different artwork. Exciting times ahead!
Our class novel that we will be reading in school is War Horse by Michael Morpurgo.
Homework Project: To build a WW1 model trench
Look at how wonderful and creative are Year 6 children are!
Reading for Pleasure at Home
Year 6 you have a wonderful treat this year - you have the chance to pick a book to read at home whilst enjoying a hot chocolate!!!!!! There are 10 special bags to chose from and they each contain a book, a book review and a hot chocolate sachet. Mrs Wolff wants you to sit back, relax, enjoy a good book and a comforting, delicious drink. When you have finished your book fill out the book review so we know your thoughts on it.
Buddies are back!!!
Year 6 can not wait to help the newer members of our school family settle into school life and are looking forward to all the fun times ahead! Looking after our mental health and well-being is extremely important; the children from Year 6 are loving connecting with new people and being in the company of their buddies.
P.E will be on a Thursday afternoon with Coach Tom. Please come into school wearing your P.E kit -black/navy jog pants can be worn and trainers.

What a year !
