Year 6 - St Francis
It has been so lovely to speak to you and your parents over the last two weeks. I am so happy to hear that everyone is working hard to complete the work packs sent home. See below for activities to complete over Easter. After the Easter break there will be more formal learning which you will be able to access on this page. Please remember that if you have completed any work that you would like to share with me to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then I can share with everyone else.
I am really missing seeing you all and teaching you. School is very quiet without you.

Welcome to Year 6
Year Six is the end of primary school and an important year in the life of the children. We take great care to prepare the children for secondary school through a creative and comprehensive curriculum, including much work on our understanding of ourselves and our place in society: we intend the children to be self-confident learners, able to make the transition to secondary school with success.
To bolster their self-belief we take them away for a week on a school trip, where the children learn to challenge themselves away from their homes, engaging in exciting activities that will help them to grow and develop their independence.
In Year Six the children will sit the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests: we have been very successful in helping the children make the most of their talents, and have regularly been in the top five percent of schools nationally.

The children were given the amazing opportunity to visit Salters Hall in Central London to participate in a workshop called Layers of London. Children dived into London’s history from the Romans to World War II in this evidence based activity. The children looked at artefacts thousands of years old and became archaeologists for the day.
Monday 3rd February 2020
‘Camden Junior Citizenship scheme’.
This scheme provides a unique and invaluable opportunity for the children to learn about citizenship and life skills from various participating agencies like: TFL, the police, the fire brigade and road safety. The children spent the morning taking part in interactive scenarios, teaching different strategies for leading a safer and more responsible lifestyle. The organisations were very impressed with the children’s knowledge and felt that they are all prepared for the next step in their journey – Secondary School!!

The charity Growing Against Violence (G.A.V) delivered a unique programme to Year 6.
The children explored ‘friends vs friendly’ and the term ‘gang’. They thought about the exploitative nature of gangs, dispelling myths that gangs are conventional friendship groups that provide people with protection. The children gained a deeper understanding on how gangs recruit members and identified strategies to keep themselves safe.
Tuesday 17th March - St Patrick's Day Celebrations
The children had a jam packed day to celeberate St.Patrick's Day. First a mass in the morning with Year 5. Year 6 stepped in for those readers who were absent - how amazing! Everyone did a great job.
Then a rounders match followed, between 'The Leprechauns' and 'The Reapers'. The children had lots of fun and showed great sportsmanship with one another. I was very prouid.
Finally, we had a class party where the children showcased their talents - we have some amazing singers, dancers and even composers in our class!!
