Welcome To Year Six…

Year 6 curriculum map

We are all looking forward to an exciting year!

In Y6, the children will be expected to work hard and play hard and they will have many opportunities to develop and extend their academic, sporting, creative and social skills. They will be expected to take increasing responsibility for their own learning and will be able to complete more independent tasks to apply the skills and techniques they have learnt throughout the year.

We have a lot of trips and activities already lined up for the year which will extend our learning outside of the classroom. We will be taking advantage of our amazing location as much as possible. Please check the school website calendar for dates.

The children will have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays although with the likelihood of bad weather a constant problem, the children should have their kit in school all week in case the day needs to be changed.

Your child will also have a home school diary. These books are for messages from school for you or for you to write comments or messages to us: please check and sign it every week to ensure you are kept up to date with any changes and what is planned.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at school (Tuesday after school is the staff meeting day so we will not be available then).

Summer in Year Six!

Our main topic this term is our local study ‘Kernow’. Although it has a geographical slant it will have many cross curricular links. We will be out and about as often as we can making use of the wonderful area we live in. If you can help out with the offsite activities please let us know.

In science we are focussing on evolution and inheritance and forces.

In PE we will be playing kwik cricket, rounders, tennis and athletics as well as a swimming block.

Obviously we have SATs starting on the 8th of May. We feel the children have worked incredibly hard this year and the tests should be seen as a chance for them to show off their knowledge.

As the term progresses the children will have the opportunity to meet several members of staff from Budehaven and will get a visit from a variety of their staff.

We will also be building up to the end of the year activities. Although it seems a long way off the time will fly by (especially after SATs). I hope the children will really get involved and put in 100% commitment into what will be their final experiences of Bude Junior School.

Please come and see us if you have any questions about your child’s last term at Bude Junior. We will try to make it as memorable as we can.

If you have any issues or concerns please come in and see us.
