Year 6 - Mrs quinn
Welcome to Year 6!
We have a lovely class of 24 children who are all very excited about the wonderful activities in store for them in their final year of primary school.
Some important reminders:
- PE is on a Monday. Children should come to school in full PE kit (navy shorts or joggers and a plain white T-shirt). All jewellery should be removed prior to PE lessons.
- Children should bring their reading book to school each day and should have it signed by an adult at least three times each week.
- Homework is given on a Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday.
- Please remember to bring a water bottle to school each day.
Visit from Sarah Millington - 25.9.23
Year 6 enjoyed a visit from author Sarah Millington who spoke to the children about her new book 'Demelza Rice is not very nice.' The children asked lovely questions and were able to share their own aspirations for the future.
Visit to Beamish - 16.10.23
As part of our History topic on the Victorin's, we went on a visit to Beamish Museum. We took part in a Victorian lesson - the teacher was extremely strict! We were shocked at some of the rules in the classroom. Children weren't allowed to write with their left hand, they couldn't rest their elbows on the tables and they had to address the teacher by 'sir' at all times. We also visited the pit cottages where we learnt about a week in the life of the wife of a miner. We took a trip down the mines before catching a tram to the old town.
