St. Philip's Catholic Primary & Nursery School

"In the light of Christ, where everyone is valued and learning is celebrated"

Children  »  Year 6

WOW where has the time gone? If you are like us, you can’t believe that these children are beginning their final year in primary school. It is a very important year for the children - one in which they will have greater responsibility around the school, one full of memorable events and the one in which they will complete their SATs. The children will also be preparing for life after St Philip’s in their new secondary schools. Year 6 is a place where self- confidence, independence and self-worth is highly promoted and it is always wonderful to see them flourish throughout the year. Supporting the children through their journey in Year 6 will be Miss Stewart and Mrs Tempest. There are lots to look forward to in Year 6. The residential to Robinwood, Eden Camp and the end of year production (to name a few). We want every child to reach their full potential and be happy at school and we’re sure if we work together we can make this happen!

VIRTUAL SPORTS DAY!

Hi Everyone, It's Mrs Beaumont here sneaking onto your class page... Sports day is one of my favourite days of the year. I didn't want us to miss out this year so on Tuesday 6th July our school is taking part in a virtual sports day against other schools. All you have to do is have a go at some of the activities attached and submit your scores here by 12 noon on Wednesday 8th July - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfdEX8xOo-PtkFwasg0B7deXM1uzvMQMFAPwpKCU9yEKG6qqg/closedform. You do not have to do all of the activities and can pick and choose which ones you would like to do. The more points you submit for our school the bigger our chance of winning. There are awards of sports equipment goody bags for Team work, Determination and Passion. BUT REMEMBER- The most important thing is to have LOTS OF FUN! Just like we always do at our St Philip's Sports Days! For more details and all the activities see the attached document.

Room 13 Chapter 9- 27

I'm so pleased children have continued to read our class novel! Here is a pack for children to work through. There are a range of comprehension and writing tasks complete with ANSWERS! It starts from chapter 9 as this is where we got up to in class. Enjoy!

Home Learning for Year 6

I will be providing work for the children on a week-to-week basis given the situation we are finding ourselves in. I hope that this is useful for your child and that they can continue to enjoy learning at home. For each week I will give children a; Reading Comprehension, Arithmetic, Problem Solving and SPaG activities. You will be able to access these via the website on the Year 6 page every week as I upload them.  This is also alongside their Reading and accessing the recommended websites such as TimesTable Rockstars. Your child is also welcome to continue to work through their homework books. I will keep updating things from my end to keep the children learning best I can!

The children are reading Room 13 by Robert Swindells. If you can get hold of a copy and  wish to continue reading this I will upload work to go along side this fantatsic book.
Exploring our new class text

Year 6 have been racking their brains with given clues and predicting what their next class book is going to be. On Friday we found an object from the book at the bottom of the field and they had to investigate!
