Welcome to Year 6! We cannot wait to have you all in school, learning and experiencing this exciting year together! Let’s have a fantastic time!
Miss Mossie teaches Snapdragons and Miss Auger teaches Foxgloves. We have Mr Stokes supporting both classes this year and Mrs Taylor will teach some of us for Whole Class Reading. In Snapdragons, there are 29 pupils; 16 boys and 13 girls. In Foxgloves, there are 31 pupils; 17 boys and 13 girls.
Have a look at our class rules below. We want to be as happy as we can be at school, so following these rules, that we created together, helps us to stay on track.
Here is our Autumn term time table. We have PE on Wednesdays so please make sure you have your trainers or pumps in school on this day. Put your names in all of your uniform and kit to avoid losing anything. This year it is crucial you keep your belongings in order.
This year we have Dynamite Dojos! Your homework sheet offers many opportunities to earn dojo points that can count towards rewards. You of course can do other activities that link to our school work as well as those on the sheet. Tick off what you achieve. Complete/stick work in your homework books and take photos of the bigger projects you do, as unfortunately you cannot bring them into school anymore.
Our new topic is outta this world! We are learning all about Earth and Space in our science topic this term. We are very excited about some of the learning opportunities and experiences we have coming up so watch this space to see what we get up to.
Whenever we use computers, iPads, tablets or mobile phones, we will be following our 5 SMART rules…
afe: We are careful and do not give out personal information about yourself or anyone else when chatting or posting online.
eeting: We know that meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous, so it’s not a good idea. We only meet someone with your parents’ or carer’s permission and even then, only when they are with us. We always remember that online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
ccepting: We understand that accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems—they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
eliable: When we chat online, we know it is best to only chat to real world friends and family members. Sometimes, people online might lie about who they are. We always check information found on the internet because it might not be true. We use other websites and books to do this.
ell: We always tell a parent, carer, trusted adult or phone Childline if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. We know that we can always report to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) if we are worried about online abuse or the way that someone is chatting online.
At River View, we use our RICHER values at all times. Pupils always try their hardest to ensure we work hard to remain ‘Green’ so we can receive the rewards at the end of each week. Unfortunately, if you do not show super behaviour, you may receive red cards and these mean you don’t get to join us for our Richer Rainbow time on Friday afternoons.
Remember to bring your trainers or pumps in to school and put your name in them.
In the Autumn term, we will be teaching athletics and then orienteering. Athletics will include activities such as running, hopping, skipping and generally moving our bodies to stay fit and healthy.
