This half term our topic is Gallery Rebels.
Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone. Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels! Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought, or an idea? Dream the dream – or show us your nightmares! What do you see? Watches melting? Wheels spinning? A shark in a box? Can you express yourself without words? Well, a picture paints a thousand of them! Try your hand at a ‘Damien Hirst’ sculpture, exploring the weird and wonderful to create a curious treasure for the next generation. Take up your arms and fight for the cause. Paintbrushes and sketchbooks at the ready – let’s make art!
We have two classes in Year 6:
Saffron Class and Scarlet Class
They will be supported and guided through this important year by:-
all working together to help the children to achieve their full potential and to make good progress.
Miss Courtney is our Year Group Leader.
If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues
We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.
We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.
We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well-hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.
In Year 6 homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.
We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework.
We will provide your child with a folder and Home Learning Journal for the adult to initial to show they have been practising their reading, maths and spelling skills. We encourage the children to keep their homework folders in pristine condition, taking pride in, and celebrating, their home learning.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday and will be checked the following Thursday.
It is really important the children get into good habits with homework in Year 6 to help them get ready for secondary school.
Children should have their homework folders and reading books in school every day.
