Welcome to Year 6!

Just a couple of things to note from this week.

In year assembly this week, the children watched a video about autism to further develop their understanding of some of their peers. We discussed how children with autism may not always look different but that they may see the world differently. As a year group, we also discussed the difficulties that children with autism can sometimes face such as social interactions, understanding rules and the inability to express clearly how they are feeling. We then discussed some of the fantastic abilities children with autism have such as photographic memories, drawing or an ability to work out maths calculations mentally, very quickly. We have encouraged the children to ensure they ask any questions that they may have over the coming days.

We have noticed an increase in the number of children bringing in mobile phones to school since the new term began and we would like to remind parents that children are only able to bring phones to school if they are walking home without an adult. These phones must then be handed to their class teacher when they arrive at school and collected at 3.15pm. If a  child is found to have their phone on them during the school day, then it will be handed to the school office and a parent will be asked to come and collect it.

Just a gentle reminder, that if your child arrives at school later than 8:50am, they need to sign in at the school office. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

The Year 6 team.
