Year 6

The new national curriculum with year six content: Beatrix Potter Curriculum Map 2015

Homework

Year 6 are learning to organise their homework responsibilities ready for secondary school.  They receive regular homework in the core areas as well as specific tasks and practices for assessments.

We also expect our year 6 children to organise PE kit days and any other timetabled requirements.

Children are encouraged to bring in fruit for the morning break.  The fruit scheme for Nursery to Year 2 cannot under current rules be extended to year 3 and above

School starts at 9am and the school bell will ring at 8.55am by which time you should be in the playground ready to start school.  Lateness is not acceptable without a sound reason.  Year one line up in the key stage one playground.  Uniform is part of the school ethos and is expected to be worn (details on our web)

Contacting teachers.  Trying to talk to the class teacher in the morning simply halts a calm start to the day.  If you need to talk urgently go to the office where they can pass on urgent messages.  Do ask to talk to teachers at the end of the day, e mail the school or hand them a note in the morning.  If there is a difficulty they will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Trips.  Local area trips where the children might walk down the library will not need your permission.  Travelling  further a field or with transport will require your permission.  Obviously we have to charge (Charging Policy is on our web) but we always aim to keep costs down and we can on many occasions reduce costs by subsidising some trips.

If you are asking someone else to collect you child at the end of the day we must have a letter or an e mail to confirm who this is with.  We will not let children leave without permission in writing.  If this is a regular occurence one letter with details will suffice.

School Journeys

BP takes year five and six to Plas Menai in Wales. They take part in a whole range of watersport activities under expert tuition.  Its great fun in a safe environment.  Pupils who perhaps do not shine in traditional sports discover capabilities they did not realise they ever had.  Watching eight pupils sailing a 30 ft keel boat is a joy to observe, totally confident in their abilities and un-afraid to try something different.  This is what BP school journeys are about.    Last year we also visited the Somme to trace the Newfoundland regiments journey to the battle in 1916. On our news posts you can view pictures of all the journeys we organise.

ICT work is also a vital part of learning in the 21st Century.  Here is just one example of the work our children undertake.  Based on Shakespeares Macbeth:  Macbeth
