Year 6 Treat

Year 6 had a busy afternoon in the sun! They enjoyed delicious pizzas from Pizza Hut, followed by ice cream, signing their leavers books and dancing with friends.

They have all worked incredibly hard this year and we can’t wait for you to see them perform next week, you are in for a treat!

Year 6 Upcoming Events

Dear Parents/Carers,

As year 6 near the end of their time at Newdale, we have lots of events planned to celebrate.

Friday 15th July – Year 6 treat.

To celebrate the end of a wonderful year, we would like to treat the children to a pizza lunch followed by ice-creams. Food will be paid for by school and ordered from Pizza Hut so they will not need a packed lunch that day (unless they do not wish to eat pizza!). We will not eat until 1pm so we can picnic altogether outside after the official lunchtime has finished, therefore please ensure your child has a snack for breaktime to keep them going a little longer than usual! We will order a gluten free pizza for those we know require this. Any other issues, please inform us and confirm, via ParentPay, whether your child will want food so we can order enough.

Wednesday 20th July – Peter Pan performances.

The children have been working incredibly hard to prepare for their production of Peter Pan, which we are delighted to present to you over two performances at 1.30pm and 6.00pm. Tickets for these performances can be purchased via ParentPay and we kindly ask that all children are in school for 5.30pm to prepare for the evening performance. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thursday 21st July – Year 6 Leavers Assembly.

For their final farewell, year 6 will be hosting an awards ceremony, distributing awards to peers who they have voted for in class. The assembly will begin at 2.00pm and there will be an opportunity for photographs to be taken at the end. The children can bring in smart clothing (such as their prom outfit), if they wish to change into this before the event, however this is not compulsory.

We would also please ask for each child to bring in a strong plastic bag to school from Monday 11th July onwards, so that they can bring home their books from this year.

Thank you for your continued support and co-operation.

Mrs Thomas and Mr McFarland

Art Day in Year 6

The theme for Art day this year was Art and Geography, celebrating artists from all around the world.

Year 6 had a brilliant Art day, celebrating the work of Katsushika Hokusai, with a particular focus on the Great Wave Off Kanagawa.

We began the day with some map work and researching Japan. We then explored and commented on his work, experimented with hot and cold colours, before creating our own final, chance to shine piece.

Can you spot any Telford landmarks hidden between the waves?

SATs Week Arragements

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are almost ready for SATs next week and are so pleased with how the children have been working so very hard, both in school and at home.

We just wanted to remind you that we are expecting to see all Year 6 children by 8.15am next week for their free breakfast club. This will run from Monday to Thursday.

For homework this weekend, we will be uploading some revision activities to the class pages on Google. However, this work will be optional. At this point, some children really need to spend the weekend unwinding, whereas others may want to dip in to some practise.

The best thing you can encourage your child to do for next week, is to sleep well and remember that they will be fabulous! We are really so proud of them all. Many thanks for your continued support.

Mrs Thomas and Mr McFarland

SATs 2022 information for parents

Year 6 SATs Revision

Dear Parents/Carers,

A number of resources have now been uploaded onto Google Classroom to support your child with additional revision in preparation for SATs week, which is the week commencing 9th May 2022. These resources include support for Spelling, Reading and Maths.

Please encourage your child to access these resources from now until SATs week, as well as to continue to complete their homework and access Read Theory when outside of school each week. These resources are a valuable revision tool for your child during the Easter holidays, should they wish to complete some additional preparation.

Thank you for your continued co-operation.

The Year 6 Team.
