Dear PGL parents,
It has been forecast that the weather this weekend is going to be very wet. Please make sure your child has sufficient clothing as they will need to change more than once during the day due to outside activities that will continue as planned. As there is nowhere for them to dry their clothes, they will need spares and black plastic sacks. They MUST have a waterproof coat and at least 3 pairs of shoes (an old pair for rafting). This will ensure that your child will stay warm and dry at the appropriate times and make the weekend a pleasant experience for them.
The Year 6 Team
Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is an exciting time for all pupils: they are the eldest in the school, there is the opportunity to take part in a special activity week, the end of year prom and preparations for moving on to year 7 in various secondary schools.
In year 6 our collective theme is birds of prey with the classes named:
Kestrel class - Miss D Miles, Hawks class - Mrs Atkinson Falcon class - Miss J Miles
Mrs Annoot, Mrs Twynam and Mrs S and Mrs Martinez and Miss Franklin
Mrs Stephens (KS2 Assistant Headteacher) will also be taking a Maths and Literacy set daily with Mrs Wright.
Year 6 class assemblies are on the following dates at 2.30pm:
Kestrels - Thursday 26th September
Hawks - Thursday 10th October
Falcons - Thursday 17th October
Year 6 Science - Forest School
Week commencing Monday 16th September, Year 6 will be using the forest school to enhance their learning experience in science.
Can you please ensure your child has a change of clothes for the activities, including a pair of shoes or wellies. These will need to stay in school for the entire week as activities will be continuing throughout the week.
DVDs and short animations
Over the course of the year to support the children’s learning, we will be showing a variety of short animations and DVDs. Some of these will have the rating ‘PG’. If you do not wish your child to partake in viewing these particular clips throughout the year, please let your class teacher know. This will begin from Friday 6th September.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office or the contact form below. We are willing to speak with you briefly between 8.40am and 8.50am, or after 3pm; appointments can always be made for longer discussions to avoid clashes with staff meetings and clubs.
