Meadowhead Junior School

High Aspirations Bright Futures

6CS

We are nearly at the end of a very busy year in 6CS!! I can't believe where the time has gone. We are busy rehearsing for the Leaver's Assembly at the moment and hope that you will be able to join us to celebrate your child's achievements at Meadowhead Juniors. It is proving to be a very funny assembly and the children are performing really well. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching 6CS this year and will miss them. I hope you have a lovely summer and the children settle into their new schools with a positive start.

Mrs Sudworth

This half term, after our trip to Fleetwood, we will focus on the historical side of seaside towns and how they developed. I'm sure the children will all enjoy learning about this as I know they thoroughly enjoyed our trip!! Year 6 staff are currently meeting with the staff from high schools to talk to them about your children and make the transition as smooth as possible. As I have said before we are instilling independence to the children to also help with transition. If there are questions you would like to ask please do not hesitate to ring and make an appointment or just call in before or after school.

Mrs Sudworth

Welcome back to the last half-term for 6CS children at Meadowhead Junior School!! Time has gone very quickly and this term we will be working hard on becoming more independent to prepare for high school. We will concentrate on developing skills in all subjects in the curriculum so that your children will have the best start they possibly can at high school.

This half term, we are hoping for many opportunities to apply our knowledge to learning outside the classroom Children will be taking the temperature of the lovely summer days and creating graphs and charts as part of our maths lessons. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and we can have some time playing a variety of team games on the field. In Design and Technology, we will be making structures that have moving parts. Children will use wind power to make their structures work before using electrically circuits as part of our work in science.

The Year 6 leavers' assembly will take place on 22nd July. We hope to see as many parents as possible watching this performance.

I'm sure that we will have a very productive half-term.

Where has the time gone? The first half of the Summer term may have only been a 5 week term but it feels like so much longer!! The children have worked so hard towards their SATs and have shown resilience, determination and a positive attitude. I'm so proud of each and everyone one of them!! I know that they enjoyed the toast club that we laid on for 2 weeks and it was so lovely to see so many children attend, enjoy breakfast and chat to their friends.

Our trip to Fleetwood on Thursday is linked to our topic, 'Oh! I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside'. We will be looking at the history of seaside holidays, visiting a museum and even dressing up in costumes!! I'm sure this will be a great experience for the children and know we will get lots of quality writing from the day in the second half of the Summer term. Let's pray the weather stays fine, at least in the morning, for when we visit the beach.

Summer 2 will partly help prepare your children for their next journey onto high school, ensuring they feel confident and take as many worries away as possible! The weather will hopefully be sunny and we can get out to play many team games on the field. Please ensure your child has their outdoor and indoor P.E. kits in school at all times.

I hope you and your children enjoy half term and we will see you in June.smileysmiley

We have planned for Year 6 pupils to visit two museums in Manchester on Friday 29th March to support the work in science on animal classification.

 

The first venue is the Whitworth Art Gallery, www.whitworth.manchester.ac.uk, where we will have an art workshop learning new drawing techniques. This is led by professional artists.  We will be drawing from nature.

 

Lunch will be in the Whitworth Art Gallery. Children who bring their own packed lunch will be given a brown paper lunch bag on Thursday 28th for them to bring their packed lunch in. This can be thrown away after lunch. We are trying to reduce plastic waste in creative ways so we hope this will help! Children who have a school dinner will be provided with a school packed lunch.

 

The second venue is The Manchester Museum, www.museum.manchester.ac.uk.This is a great museum full of amazing exhibits. We are going to be looking at different animal groups and have been asked to trial a new school activity for the museum. There is a vivarium too full of exciting live creatures too.

 

 

Striving to achieve our SATs targets!

This half term, all the children will continue taking part in extra lessons to accelerate their learning ready for the SATs in May and high school.

Throughout the Spring term we will be helping the children to fulfil their potential.

Please could you help in the following ways by ensuring:

  • Attendance is the best that it can be
  • Your child is at school on time (8.45am)
  • Weekly homework is completed and returned on time
  • Home reading takes place on a daily basis.
  • Your child has plenty of sleep and is ready to learn!

Welcome to the 2nd part of the Spring Term. As always the weeks are flying by and the SATs are getting nearer!! As we have requested before, please make sure that your child is in school everyday and on time. Every part of the day is filled with learning and we don't want any of the children to miss parts of lessons. Please ensure that your child is having plenty of sleep and breakfast before they arrive at school. We are working very hard to make sure that your child reaches their full potential but they also need to be identifying their gaps and working hard at home to ensure they overcome any barriers. We will continue with athletics in P.E. and classifying animals in Science. There are many links on our class page to various websites that will help your child with their learning. Take a look!!

Happy New Year!

To commemorate 100 years since WW1 we are learning and performing (both in school and at Corporation Park) a poem that was written by Wilfred Owen called Dulce et Decorum est. I have added a copy to the class page as the children want to learn it. I'm sure they will enjoy performing for you over the next two weeks!!

 

Welcome to Autumn Term 2! We will be working very hard this half term learning lots of new skills. Please encourage your child to read regularly at home and ask them questions about the book they are reading. Also, please make sure that homework is completed and brought into school on a Tuesday.
