Special Message for Year 6 - 11.05.2020

 

Dear Year 6,

 

It may  seem a little strange right now, as we would have been getting ready for the SATs this week, which you all have worked extremely hard for. Watching you learn and grow and change from day to day has been a pleasure. We hope that all the things we’ve done and are still doing are helpful in many ways. The trials of yesterday are behind you. A new future dawns, and with it come possibilities, we have great expectations for you; inspiration is everywhere you look. The opportunity to be better than you were yesterday is right here, right now.

 

We are so proud of you all, as you have worked tirelessly by setting targets and pushing boundaries to achieve your successes.

We know some of you don't mind and actually like the SATs but wanted to remind you that the SATs do not define you; it is all of your hard work, attitude and effort that makes you strong, unique and independent individuals. As your teacher's we feel very feel privileged to be teaching and guiding you. 

 

Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart, and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined. Keep smiling you are amazing...

 

 

Summer Term 2020 Message

 

We hope that you were able to relax with your family over the Easter break and that you have all kept safe and well.

Please use the home learning pages below (scroll down) to navigate to suggested learning activities.

 

Bug Club is back! Please ensure you are accessing Bug Club (see parent mail),

as we will be logging in to follow and support your reading progress.

 

The English and Maths pages (under Summer Term Home Learning star)  will be updated weekly

with new learning activities so make sure you are checking this website and your e-mail each Monday

 

We want to emphasise that the learning we are uploading is suggested activities. We are not trying to replicate the school day and want families to choose what will work best for them in this new situation. We do not want or expect any families to be replicating the school day at home. Learning can come from so many things; drawing, baking, talking, making,  and reading are just some of these ways but mainly we hope all children are happy.  Do also visit the wellbeing pages and try some of the activities together with your children.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail your child's class teacher.

It feels very strange that we are not going back to school to start the summer term and we miss you all greatly! We are however SO proud of how you have persevered during this time and are getting on so well at home with learning and other exciting activities - keep it up! We want to send our best wishes to all of our Year 6 family at this time and want to remind you that the Highlands Family are there for anything you might need. We look forward to hearing more about your activities at home and how creative you can be! Remember to keep active and make sure you are having fun at home! 

 

 

Healthy Highlands

 

At Highlands our aim is to help our children become healthy and happy citizens of the world. To support this we would like you to make sure your child has a water bottle to help keep them hydrated at school.

They will also need to have a healthy breakfast before they come to school.

We are also working hard to provide our children with the healthiest lunches possible to make sure they are ready to learn in the afternoon. On a Monday and  a Friday your child is allowed to have one treat in their lunch box. All children are able to bring a healthy snack to have at playtime such as a piece of fruit or cereal bar.

Sustainable Development Goal

 

The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) that Year 6 will be focussing on will be ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’. Throughout the year, there will be projects set for the children to do little tasks to further raise awareness and help our community in whichever way we can.

In the meantime, we encourage your children and your family to consider small changes you can make to aid the battle for Responsible Consumption and Production.

Such as:

  1. Reducing your waste. Reducing our waste can be done in many ways, from ensuring you don’t throw away food to reducing your consumption of plastic—one of the main pollutants of the ocean.
  2. Carrying a reusable bag, refusing to use plastic straws, and recycling plastic bottles are good ways to do your part every day.
  3. Being thoughtful about what you buy and choosing a sustainable option whenever possible.
  4. Making informed purchases about what we’re buying also helps. For example, the textile industry today is the second largest polluter of clean water after agriculture, and many fashion companies exploit textile workers in the developing world. If you can buy from sustainable and local sources, you can make a difference as well as exercising pressure on businesses to adopt sustainable practices.
