St Saviour C of E Primary School

Striving for excellence whilst caring for all

Year Six - 2021-2022

Welcome to Class 6 - the last stop before High School! In class 6 we try to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere that encourages the children to develop, have fun learning and grow. The SAT results (pre covid) over the last 6 years (and more beyond) place us as one of the very highest achieving Primary Schools in the country. We have been ranked in the top 1000 of primary schools in the country and our last 7 years Maths results combined place us in the top 10 schools in the country (out of more than 23000!).

How do we do it? By giving the children confidence and a belief that they can do. It can be hard work but we make sure we also have fun along the way.

The last 2 year have been the strangest I have had in my 26 years of teaching and I hope this year will settle down quickly and give us a far more normal experience. What we did learn was that the children are incredibly adaptable (far more than us) and got use to the new normal very quickly - it did us no end of good to see the smiles return. This year may well bring some challenges but we will face them together and do our best to make sure the children get the experience and education they deserve.

Keep a look out on the school Twitter and Facebook page for photographs of Yr 6 throughout the year on the class feed @6Ringley or the school feed @stsaviource.

Work For Thursday 30/9/21

Hello Y6,

 

English -  Today I would like you to complete the sheet ‘Comma Practise’  - this follows on from our lesson last week when we were using parenthesis.

Next, I’d like you to read ‘Five Palms Hotel’ and answer the questions.  This will help when we plan our leaflet about the Mayan museum,  then highlight all the persuasive phrases on the ‘Five Palms’ sheet.

 

Topic  -  watch the clip about Pakal the Great.  Read the information, ‘Mayan Rulers’ and then answer the questions. (We will be doing some artwork next week leading on from this).

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zq6svcw/articles/zv4x6yc 

Lastly, read the the information about Game of Death – Pok a Tok was definitely more than just a ball game!  Then answer the questions.

 

Thank you

Mrs S.P

We are always sad to say goodbye to Year 6 at the end of the year - but hope we send them off well-prepared for Secondary School and life beyond. It is always lovely to hear how they are getting on.
