Welcome to Year 6
Everyone is very excited and is settling into life in the school. Please do not hesitate to speak with us if you have any queries. Thank you for your continued support in helping your child with their reading, times tables and other homework.
We look forward to continuing to work alongside you in educating your child for the rest of the academic year.

Please find below the information presented to parents at the SATs Meeting for Parents together with writing exemplars for working at Expected Standard and working at Greater Depth. If you wish to discuss anything further please contact your class teacher and we will be happy to explain further.
Here is the Year 6 homework grid for the Spring term. The children should also have this stuck into their homework books.
Each week, the children are expected to complete one piece of work from this grid. They should vary the columns that they choose from and avoid repeating the same column two weeks running.
We are expecting to see a variety of different methods of presentation and the children should take the opportunity to impress us through their work. If a piece of work is completed on the computer it can be printed off, or brought into school on a memory stick. Children should always write in their homework book, even if they have completed their work on computer, so that we can see their work when we look back.
Please ensure that the children have spoken to one of the teachers before the weekly deadline if they have any questions.
Anti Bullying Week 2017
This year’s Anti Bullying Week theme was – “All Different, All Equal”. The slides on the document can be shared with your child about the feelings they have around bullying. Bullying is a serious issue in schools and one we work hard to teach the children about in terms of the impact such behaviour can have. It is never something any one should experience but by teaching the children about the ways it can be stopped and dealt with it should help them to feel confident to speak about it. We hope that you find the information useful.
The final day of activity was a great success and the weather was absolutely glorious. The children had another fantastic day and completed the last two rounds of activities. The Badgers and the Stoats spent the whole day away from the centre and enjoyed a wonderful coastal walk before climbing the face of the old quarry, whilst the Otters got to grips with the muddy terrain of the estate and canoeing in the moat of Pembroke Castle. The Weasels made short work of the orienteering challenge in the morning and set about discovering new parts of the estate in the afternoon on their mountain bikes. The Polecats enjoyed canoeing in the morning and spent the day at the beach in and out of the rock pools in the afternoon. The shop was open after dinner in the evening for the children to buy a little souvenir of a week they will remember for many years to come.
As day three draws to a close the children have had another great day at Stackpole. Breakfast was an interesting mix of hash browns, spaghetti hoops and rounds and rounds of toast. Activities began once again soon after breakfast was finished.
Whilst the Badgers looked for the creatures from the sea at Angle Bay, the Stoats managed to tame the winds in the moat of Pembroke Castle as they worked together in their canoes. The Otters and the Weasels spent the day exploring the Stackpole Estate and climbing the old quarry face before returning home for a hot meal. The polecats got to grips with the new mountain bikes in the morning and explored the woods in the afternoon. Class 7 went out at 7pm to experience the “night line” with Mr Jewels, Mrs King and Mr McMorrow and returned full of stories and laughter. Fatigue meant an early night for all, with much talk of merriment and adventure tomorrow.
