YEAR 6

 

What have we achieved this week?

Phew!  Another exciting week at Holy Trinity as we embarked on Anti-Bullying Week.  As always, the Year 6 children threw themselves into all the activities with their usual good humour and enthusiasm.  They listened carefully during the launch assembly on Monday morning and participated fully in the workshops that were arranged for them on Thursday.  The children were thrilled to see that the posters that they had made last week were displayed around the school and that the younger children were taking the time to read them and learn from them.  We are very proud of our Year 6 children and the role models that they have become.
  
It's clear that the message about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle has really hit home after our Healthy Week!  The 'Health Clinic' on Thursday was a roaring success and saw the children offering sound advice on such areas as sleep, mental health, the dangers and benefits of drugs, healthy diet and even screen time!  I know that the parents and governors were all very impressed with the children's scientific knowledge.

The Daily Mile

It is now a requirement for children to have an extra 20 minutes of exercise a day in addition to playtimes and PE. Therefore, the whole school will be engaging in the The Daily Mile.

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.

It is a profoundly simple but effective concept. It’s impact can be transformational – improving not only the children’s fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing.

Research has shown that The Daily Mile can even increase attainment in primary school, and parents have reported an increased interest in health and wellbeing from their children after they have started The Daily Mile.

Please read here for more details. 

 Please ensure children always have a water-proof jacket in school as the weather can be very unpredictable.

 

PE Kits:

Please remind your children that if they go to an after-school club that requires them to wear their P.E kit, that it is returned to school the following day.

 If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E, please inform the class teacher directly, send an email or write a note. Otherwise, they will be expected to take part.

 

PE lessons will take place on a Monday and Friday. Please make sure you bring in your PE kits. While it is still warm, please keep a deodorant in your bag.

Homework diaries Your homework diaries include your new reading records. You are the only year group in the school to be using these special diaries and we hope you find them useful. Diaries will need to be handed in on a  Thursday morning.

In terms of reading, we would like you to read every evening. However, you only need to make three or four entries in your diary. Please make sure that each entry is signed by someone at home.
