Welcome to Year 6!
22 incredible pupils, Miss Cole and Mrs Warrender, woven together to make this year's 'Class of 2020/21 Year 6'.
As written in scripture, we are one body together in faith; who are woven as one. In Year 6, we use our many gifts, words of wisdom and God given qualities to support each other with love and compassion; taking every step of the journey hand in hand. Together, we can
love, learn and grow with Jesus.
Our Gospel Value for this half term are to be Curious and Active.
Curious about everything; and active in our engagement with the world, changing what we can for the better.
Throughout our time at St. Gregory's, we build upon all of our Gospel Values to equip us for our journey ahead; becoming role model of Christ himself.
COOL Time (Carrying On Our Learning): For Autumn 1, Year 6's COOL Time activities will be sent home every Friday and need to be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday. More information and guidance about these activities will be inside your child's COOL Time Book.
Homework is to be presented to the same standard as expected in class, using pencil for maths and blue pen for english.
Homework Diary: Children must have their homework diary in school every day. Homework will be written in the diary each week and parents are asked to sign diaries each week to acknowledge they have seen the work set and that it has been completed. Diaries will be checked every Wednesday morning by Mrs. Warrender and Miss Cole.
Tuesday - Your child will have swimming lessons on a Tuesday afternoon. Kit required.
Wednesday - Your child will have PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Kit required.
In Year 6, you may decide as parents that your child is able to walk home from school. For this to be accepted, you must contact the office to give your consent (this can be sent via email or via telephone correspondence). Additionally, you may decide that your child can take their phone into school, for their journey to/from school. All electronical devices must be given to Miss Cole or another adult upon entry to the school building.
