Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 - the final chapter of primary school.

 

It’s safe to say that this year has flown by and we can’t quite believe that the final half term is upon us - we’re hoping to make the children’s last weeks at Micklehurst the best they can be and we couldn’t be any prouder of everything they’ve achieved this year if we tried! We’ve planned a busy and exciting half term that’s packed with opportunities to make lasting memories and is designed to ensure our Year 6s are well prepared for secondary school and beyond.

 

This term, Miss Harding will teach the class on Monday and Tuesday and Miss Jarman will teach the class on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Radley will also support the children with their learning throughout the week.

 

We have a new geography focus for this half-term: MAPPING SKILLS. The children will learn how to use compasses and interpret grid references, both 4 and 6 figures. They will then be taught how to decipher an ordnance survey map by looking at plans of the local area to put our learning into context. In history, we’re delving in to a study of the MAYANS this term as we learn to use a range of sources to discover everything we can about their life and beliefs and how they’ve influenced us today. In science, we’ll be learning all about ELECTRICITY. We'll be reminding ourselves what the different symbols mean and we'll be investigating how to make a range of circuits and how to solve several electrical problems!

 

We’ve got some other exciting things to look forward to this term as well, including a workshop delivered by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and a Mock Trial Competition that a team of Year 6s will be attending in Salford. We’ll also be treating the class to a bowling trip in July and a celebration in school to mark the end of their time at Micklehurst!

 

And of course, we have our Leavers Assembly to prepare! The assembly will take place on the last day of term and will give our Year 6s an opportunity to bid goodbye to the school whilst we celebrate everything they’ve achieved as members of our Micklehurst family. We hope to see many of you there!

It is really important that you read with your child or encourage them to read independently as often as possible and we are grateful for your support at home with this.

 

Please ensure that your child has a refillable water bottle in school every day.

 

If you have any concerns or information you want to share with us, please send a message on Seesaw or Dojo and we will reply as soon as possible.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Jarman, Miss Harding and Mrs Radley
