Welcome to Year 6 Hawthorn Class Page

How will you connect your story?

Project Overview

Throughout this REAL Project, we will explore the different components and stages within the human life cycle. We will be encouraging the children to dream about their futures and consider the steps they need to take to reach their goals. We start by considering how our ‘life stories’ in 2022 (modern day) differ from those living during the Victorian era, and move on to some reflection and PSHE work around the topics of secondary school transition, relationships, and raising aspirations.

Mini Outcomes

  • Create your own ‘life story’ and explore how that differs from people living during the Victorian era.
  • Transition program – Upwards and Onwards.
  • Prepare personal and digital memories.

Year Group Information

Pupils will need to wear their PE kit to school every Tuesday. Sycamore need their swimming kits (swimming costume/shorts, towel, cap and goggles if required) on a Monday and Hawthorn need it on a Tuesday up until half term. After half term, there will be top up swimming for a select group – the children who are involved will be notified.

Reading records (blue book) and home readers must be in school every day – we advise storing these in pupils’ school bags. Please make it a priority to read with your child and we ask that the reading record is signed by an adult or the Y6 child five times a week.

Homework is set on Seesaw on a Tuesday and is expected to be completed by the following Tuesday. Staff will mark the children’s work online and send it back for the pupils to see. Children will be given 2 pieces of homework on Seesaw per week – Maths and Grammar.

Pupils have received their own individual QR Code/Text Code to log in to Seesaw on a laptop or tablet at home. Smart phones can also be used to access the work, however pupils may struggle to type on such a small screen so we recommend handwritten answers on paper which can then be photographed and uploaded as that child’s piece of work.

Pupils are also expected and will be monitored online by class teachers that they complete the following activities:

Reading Plus – complete at least 3 comprehensions per week.

Maths Shed – regular practice.

Spelling Shed – regular practice.

Times Table Rockstars – regular practice.

Remember to keep up with what we are doing on the school website.
