Dear Year 6 Parents and Carers,
RE: Year 6 Curriculum – Summer 2, 2022
It may be hard to believe, but your children have just six weeks left in primary school! We are looking forward to a busy, hard-working and fun end to the school year.
Our theme for this last half term is: Macbeth, Memories and Moving on Up! Our aim for this term is threefold: to keep as many of the children’s normal routines in place as possible; to prepare them for the transition to secondary school; and to celebrate and mark their achievements during their time at Kelvin Grove. Below are the key dates and information you need to know for this term:
Tuesday 12th July – Y6 Sports Day (AM – Wells Park)
Thursday 14th July – Y6 End of Year trip to O2
Wednesday 20th July – Y6 End of Year Party
Thursday 21st July – Y6 Leavers’ Performance (9:30 start time)
As is our tradition, we will be making a yearbook for the children as a memento of their time at Kelvin Grove. The children are currently working hard towards this. Every child is featured and the final product is printed and bound externally to a high professional standard. The yearbook is something to cherish and a special souvenir that they can look back on in the days, weeks, months and years to come. Order forms will be sent out later in the term.
Last week the children were a part of a workshop on secondary transition. We will continue to follow up on this in PHSE lessons and provide support to individual children as necessary. Individual secondary schools will write to you directly with the dates and times of their visit days for incoming Year 7s. Please keep an eye out for these communications and inform the school office of dates when your child/children will be out of school attending them.
Trip to the 02 – Thursday 14th July
To celebrate the end of year, we will be taking the children to the O2 to watch a film and visit Oxygen trampoline park. There will be a cost for this trip – a letter with the specifics will follow shortly.
Year 6 Leavers’ Party – Wednesday 20th July, 5-7pm
This will be in the Main Hall from 5pm until 7pm (Food will be provided.)
Year 6 Leavers’ Performance – Thursday 21st July, 9:30am
This will take place on the morning of the last day of term – please mark the date in your diaries. You will be asked nearer to the time how many seats you require (usually a maximum of two per family).
Please note that children are expected to be in full school uniform until the last day of term (Thursday 21st July). This includes black school shoes. If there are any difficulties with this, please speak to your child’s registration teacher. Our PE day will continue to be on a Tuesday; children are expected to wear their Kelvin Grove jumpers as part of their school uniform. In light of hotter weather, please reinforce what we teach the children in PHSE about daily washing, using deodorant as appropriate and changing their school shirt regularly.
We are looking forward to enjoying this last term with your children. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s registration teacher.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Year 6 Team
