Welcome to Year 6!
I hope you had a relaxing and restful half term. Back to the hard work on the run up to Christmas!
Year 6 is an exciting, motivating and important year for all pupils as you spend your final year in primary school.
Children in Year 6 take their faith very seriously. In addition to regular participation at Mass, together with other services at Church, children are given the opportunity to conduct and lead their own prayer services for our class. Our altar is the focal point of our classroom, dressed in accordance to the colours of the liturgical calendar. Our altar has a 'prayer box,' where children are given the opportunity to privately deposit their own petitions to God.
We also work together to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is a very special time for us as it encourages us to reflect on our faith and think about what it means to be an ambassador of Christ. Our daily prayers, hymn practices and participation at Mass enable us to learn and grow in our faith.
In Year 6, we take preparations for secondary school seriously, this starts with completing our homework on time. We are expected to complete English and Mathematics homework each week, together with spellings and times tables revision. We also have topic based homework to be completed over the half term. Spellings and times tables tests take place on Friday mornings.
This is a vitally important year for us as we grow and become more independent. We have lots of jobs and responsibilities to help with the smooth running of the school. All teachers have very high expectations of us and we know that we have to set an outstanding example to the rest of the school.
