Welcome to Year 6
Here are our curriculum maps for 2017/18:
We use our CLIC values to help us to learn to the best of our ability. We believe that every child has the right-
C– to be a confident communicator
L– to learn
I– to improve their health
C– to be part of a community
At Netley Abbey Junior School, these ideas underpin all of our learning. With this in mind, please take some time to see what we have been up to in class.
If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please feel free to talk to our class teachers in the first instance who should be able to answer any queries. After talking to the class teacher, if there are any further enquires, they can be directed toward our head teacher.
Autumn 2 – Road Safety Week
Throughout road-safety week, children have been encouraged to wear their most high visibility clothing to school. Two of our JRSOs have been in school extra early, ready to spot our bright attire. They have been totting up the scores for the winning class to be announced later in the week.
Autumn 2 – Anti-bullying Week
In our classes, we took part in a variety of anti-bullying activities. Then we created a display of our work to share with the rest of upper school:Wykeham read some text extracts about how bullying effects a person’s emotions and created some artwork to show this; Heath explored poetry and made some acrostic poems to the words ANTI BULLYING; and Beach created anti-bullying characters to combat bullying. These can be seen on display in the classrooms and around the school.
Autumn 2 – Remembrance Day
On the 10th November, we took part in a remembrance assembly to commemorate those who are no longer with us. It was an opportunity for us to reflect on our memories and to hear Mr Forder speak about the World Wars. He also shared a famous war poem: In Flanders Fields.
Autumn 1 – Young Shakespeare
We were very fortunate to be able to watch a performance of Romeo and Juliet at school. Then we used this as a stimulus for our writing. We wrote from different perspectives and for different purposes including: letters, diaries, short narrative and a newspaper report.
Autumn 1 – SATS Evening
Thank you to the parents, carers and children who were able to attend the SATS Evening on Thursday 28th September 2017. It was fantastic to share the important information with you, regarding the assessments that your child will sit in May 2018. Please find the powerpoint below, for those who were unable to attend and please see your child’s class teacher if you have any questions:
Autumn 1 – Fairthorne Manor
Year 6 have started their year with a fantastic trip to Fairthorne Manor. Pupils took part in many activities including: abseiling, outdoor rock climbing, raft building, kayaking, various assault courses and a parachute session!
The children learnt many life skills and dealt with the challenges of being away from their families and friends for a week. They represented all school values and were great ambassadors for Netley Abbey Junior School throughout the week. All members of staff who visited were very impressed. Well done Year 6! Enjoy the photos…
Miss Piper —- Heath
Miss Blundell —- Beach
Mrs Hance and Mrs Earle —- Wykeham
We would like children to have their PE kit in school every day, however, we understand that they do need washing!
Our PE days are-
Heath: Wednesday and Friday
Beach: Tuesday and Friday
Wykeham: Monday and Friday
Homework is always given out on a Friday and hand-in day is Wednesday.
All children will receive spellings, English/SPaG and maths homework each week. We would encourage times table learning and lots of reading too. Ask questions about what books your child is reading; about the characters and what they think might happen next, based on what they have read. Reading aloud to an adult will help fluency and understanding.
