Believe and Achieve

Year 6

Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.
Albert Einstein

In Year 6 our teacher is Miss Johnston and our fantastic teaching assistant is Miss Waters. In Class 6, we know that it is OK to make mistakes, as this is how we learn and find out new things. Miss Johnston and Miss Waters believe in each and every one of us and are always encouraging us to be the best that we can be!

This is your final year in Red Hall and we hope to make many memories and have plenty of exciting, engaging experiences! From school trips to exciting Science experiments and Topic projects, I know this year is going to be jam-packed! Last year was an unpredicable year, but we are so proud of all of you for the resilience and effort you showed. This year,  we as your teachers, will do everything possible to help and support you through your journey in Year 6. This is your time to shine and make yourself proud! 

Miss Waters and I care very much for your well-being, therefore every week there will be ‘Well-being Wednesdays’, to allow you to take time away from academic studies, compelting activies that will help devevlop social skills and help look after your mental well being.  

Please remember to never be ashamed to ask for help. Asking for help is a great strength. Anything you need, we are here for you. Never forget that! 

How your child is learning at home is very important to me. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the class email and I can help you as best I can!

Based upon the children’s prior knowledge and questions, our key enquiry question for this term is ‘How were children’s lives affected by WW2?’ 

On Wednesday 15th September, we travelled back in time to September 1939! We packed our belongings and considered what we needed, completed our travel labels and even hid during the air raid sirens! Take a look at some of the amazing costumes:
